Why did I stopped glopping harshly?

category: general [glöplog]

Many people wondered what's going on with me. I stopped glopping as in the older times and kept adding comments too rare. In fact before the number 1024. But now I have reached, I decided to continue, you just have to wait a bit until Pouet.net updates our glops, but you can still see it in my name..

The reason was a silly project, but it would be not so silly idea if I wasn't late. Simple. I just thought it would be cool to code a simple 1kb intro celebrating the reach of 1024 glops. And by adding this demo I would reach exactly 1024!!! I was calculating carefully and was at 1020 (By adding demo+image+info=+2 +1 +1=+4) and stopped there. Then some wrong doubleadded glopentries were deleted. And I was at 1008 which gave me the opportunity to use some more glops for commenting of some of my favorite demos which I couldn't before because I would exceed the number 1024 and then I wouldn't syncronize the release of the intro with the number of my glops..

The project would be nice if it worked, but I was lazy and didn't started coding that little intro. As a result, I didn't glopped seriously for months, waiting till I finish the intro (I didn't even started it!) in order to syncronize the adding of the intro by gaining the exact number of glops. This became lame, cause I stayed back, neither glops nor gloptro celebretion intro..

So I said forget it, I will continue glopping and forget, I lost the sync, I will try next time at 4k when I will be no lazy anymore. In fact I reached 1024 today, so this means that the project is abandoned. No sense for so many months in the waiting and glopstoping unfortunatelly. But the project is not over, I may release that damn intro, which will not rock, but just for the sake of not stopping what I planned badly. Perhaps for Digital Nexus to support the greek demoparty, else nowhere..

Life goes on. I was a bit sad that plans went so unsynced and crazy ideas got so silly stopping me from things for no reason. But anyways..

Something irrelevant: I am lately tired by the scene life. But I changed several things in my mind. I used to be crazy wanted to do many at once things but did nothing. Today we have exams and so I am totally inactive but I don't care. But after that I decided to take the scene more easy. I decided to have no plans. No deadlines. No 10000 things. Saying not many things about my plans. Not telling things to people and doing nothing. Just work for the fun and if I have something cool to connect, I will do so and stuff but not with strict deadlines. Or really few and far away plans..

And I reduced my projects and scenes. I decided to not working for most PC projects (Especially with my lame group Nasty Bugs) for a period of time and concentrate on very few things. The thing I decided to concentrate is CPC. Coding my 1st demo for CPC till before Eastern for ReAct. And also organizing for ReAct (In fact, lately an organizer of ReAct thought it would be a good idea to make a combined oldschool compo, but that's just an idea, I have to bring my CPC hardware, connect to projector, others could bring C64,.. before that inform 8bit sceners, etc.. we are thinking of it but not sure yet if we will succeed bringing such an event for oldschoolers in the party...) Nothing else (also my 1kb gloptro just for the sake) and still very much. I have university, work, reallife, etc..

But I promise I will be back and be better :)

Just with better spirit and no(?) deadlines...

who cares about the glöp-count?

I'd like to care about glöps, but I can't count past ten.
i care about glops, i have two in a cage in the living room and they have a little house, a wheel and loads of toys. i make sure the kids feed them.

This is one of the stupid story i ever heard. "reach exactly 1024 glöps"
Congratulation butthead. ;)

indeed. optimus, i wonder if you ever realized that actually nobody here gives a damn about your weird stories ;)

this was a truly touching story. don't listen to the others, optimus.

agreed. without optimus's touchingly sincere ramblings, 98% of the 'content' on pouet would be oneline trolls.

well, glopping, the the heck... i dont care about glops but about pouet being a complete demoarchive. i find the fact being #1 in the topten rather annoying, as this is the first thing demopeople, who get to know me personally, talk with me about. i mean, pouet stuff is for sure not all what i did for scene, so i dont want to become famous just for having a certain number in a certain toplist.

whz not abolish that glop crap ? :P

I say unto thee:

"Hunt down and hang the ones who seek glory by globbing, slay their families and burn down their wretched habitation."

It was funny indeed to read all these comments :)

In fact, it's not about glops the worrying of course. Afteralls I can preety easilly gain back my glops and be 1st! I don't care about that. I also want to say I am also connected with the idea of pouet as beeing a big database and adding everything to make it bigger. But please don't remove the glops, they are historic, we have been living with then, they offer some crazy fun (Look at this thread just ;) at pouet and without them the glop spirit will be gone!!!

The worry was different, but I was just confused that day. In fact, by saying that I abandon the 1024 project, one more deadline thingy thing weight left out of me, I don't want crazy projects, deadline,.. or I don't know. I have to take care of the shit that I left, when I grow up 18 and found that thing called demoscene, take care of myself and stuff.

I am sorry about the strange thread, but yes I do have problem (Ohh,. and btw. it's exams period and I have great crisis then and have still my lame parents magnifying them), in fact I am a human and so I totally accept having problems, I don't feel bad by thinking of my lameness. I also don't know any other guy beeing not afraid to write his own shit in here except me (Knowing that I was going to make myself again seeming lame to all the people, but don't caring for another time. It happens very much times, I feel bad after that, but before that I don't think what I am doing, but now I don't care if I showed my stupidity(?) to all the scene!), I have observed I was the only crazy guy beeing able to make fool of himownself by opening such crazy threads which only harms him. It's crazy, but I don't care!

Anyways,.. you now see I have problems, how obvious! Why tiring you with so many texts while one sentence is enough? :)

P.S. I was confused not because of loosing glops of course, but because of tired with scene, projects, or I don't know,.. and this lame project, which prooved nothing among with others.. it's crazy, I know..

Anyways, in a nutshell I am confused and have problems. So I said nothing in this reply again :(

Ohh,.. and something else!!! I don't need to gather glops for getting fame. In fact people already know me without having done anything, just because I keep beeing so crazy, insane or even lame like in this thread. I have done it a lot of times before and people want to meet this crazy weirdo just because of that =)
