Widgets done, integrating them

About a week ago, I was going to write an entry about the mental stresses that a startup puts on you. I was trying to figure out how to setup trajectories & actions, and create other sorts of complex behaviors where the options themselves may have parameters and recursive calls to other widgets. I felt very much like my brain was at capacity, and there was no way I could fit the problem into my head.

What a difference a week makes. We've got a fairly comprehensive widget library now, they look reasonably pretty in both IE and Firefox, and I just hooked the shooter archetype up to one.

Marc Andreesen's blog entry about the market "pulling" your startup along seems dead accurate. And it doesn't even have to be a huge market. Once you've got something up on the screen that looks like you'd use it yourself, it gets much easier to spend long amounts of time on it. It's like "Oh, look, I can fix that" and before you know it you've spent five hours on it and fixed a dozen bugs.

There's still lots to do, but I seem to be settling into a routine and getting into the project much more. It kinda reminds me of when I was little and would play with Capsella or Legos for hours at a time without realizing it was time for dinner.
