Time is a frustrating thing. There's never enough of it, it passes too quickly, too slowly, we have to waste it sleeping, there's daylight saving time, no one uses decimal time, etc. The last few years have been incredibly frustrating for me because of the lack of time I've had to devote to Downcast. I've been supplementing my income with contract work, then spending whatever time was left over, which hasn't been much, to work on Downcast. I also don't work well when I'm torn between multiple unrelated tasks, so the time I have had for Downcast has been distracted time at best. That's been frustrating, depressing, stressful, you name it.
Mercifully, this is about to change. Within the next few weeks, I'll be switching to Downcast full-time, with no other work related responsibilities. This will be major change for both me and Downcast. It has always been a part-time gig and that's always held it back. The prospect of working on it full time is exciting to me and I can't wait to see what it can become with real attention. It may not be a new beta release or a teaser screenshot, but it's big news for Downcast!
