Competition

We've found 4 competitors in the past week and a half: MyGame, GameBrix, Sploder, and GameScene. Each of them is more advanced than us. In GameBrix's case, they've been working on it since at least January 2006, and probably have some sort of funding.

Still no more traction on Diffle.com. I can't really blame people: right now, it has nothing to recommend it over any other site on the Internet. There're a bunch of features I'd like to implement, but it's hard to get a good continuous block of time. I typically have about 20 minutes in the morning while eating breakfast, a half hour before dinner at night, then in theory I've got 2-3 hours before going to bed, but it's usually broken up into hour chunks by shower/dishes/taking out the garbage/etc. It's hard to get into flow with only an hour, particularly at the end of the night.

(For a while I was doing okay by timeshifting things and going to bed immediately after dinner, then working in the morning. But this only worked while things were relatively light at work. I find that I need more sleep the more that I program, so I was going to bed at 10 and waking up at 8, the same time I would've woken up had I gone to bed at midnight.)

I've decided that I'm going to quit my day job. Planning to give my boss advance notice tomorrow, though it may be a month or two until I'm actually done. We have to get an IP release signed before I leave; Mike is talking to a lawyer tomorrow night.

We're going to try for yCombinator funding again. Obviously I hope we get it, though having been rejected by them 3 times before, I'm not too optimistic. Mike will quit his day job for the program if we get funding, in February if not.

Still no more traction on Diffle.com. I can't really blame people: right now, it has nothing to recommend it over any other site on the Internet. There're a bunch of features
I want to implement, but I don't have a solid block of time to implement them.
