Seventeen years ago, when I was just learning how to write computer programs, I wanted to create a company called Burn Barrel. I’m not 100% sure where I got the name from, or why I picked it.
Yesterday, I was thinking about designing some video games. I have one that I have been trying to write since 2007, but it was never finished. I also have several other games that I would like to design. The memory of Burn Barrel flashed in my head, so I started pulling up my old computer files to see what I could find (Yes, I have all the files from that long ago).
I found the old icon that I made back in 2000, and the memories started flowing back. I also found several other projects I was working on back then. It’s clear, I’ve always had a passion for computer programming, and for running my own business.
As I was looking at the files, I noticed that, I was attempting to start Burn Barrel seventeen years ago, to the day. Yesterday was May 11th 2017, and I created these files on May 11th, 2000. What a coincidence! I take that as a sign that I should spark up my programming career again.
So, today, I am at the public library, am I’m going to get started on my card game again. I figured that would be a good project to get me back into the swing of things, because I already have a huge portion of the game completed.
I’ll be posting more updates later, as things move forward.
