Indiegogo is down!

April 3rd, 2013 4 comments

Quick update to say things are getting a bit hectic here. I can’t keep track of how many sites have reported on “Ghost of a Tale” and in how many languages. As far as I know most of the major sites have a piece on it.

But now Indiegogo has just crashed and no-one can access the site (it’s not just the campaign’s page, it’s Indiegogo itself). Now I don’t think that’s directly related but still, that is most inopportune timing.

Exciting times! I’ll keep you guys posted!

Update: Indiegogo is still down (it’s been more than 3 hours now). Apparently some people in the US and Canada can reach it but Europe is still completely cut-off.

Yay! Kotaku just mentioned “Ghost of a Tale” (thanks Luke)! Will it help the campaign, which in its second day has virtually NO traction at all? Let’s hope so!

What Is a Healthy Lifestyle?

You know the obvious behaviors that describe someone who is healthy and takes care of themselves. A healthy person doesn’t smoke, tries to maintain a healthy weight, eats healthy foods with plenty of fruits, vegetables and fiber and, of course,¬†exercises on a regular basis.

Then there are other elements to add to the list. A healthy person also knows how to¬†manage stress, gets¬†good quality sleep¬†each night, doesn’t drink too much, doesn’t sit too much‚ÄĒbasically, does everything in moderation all the time. When you look at everything that could possibly go into a healthy lifestyle, you can see just how hard all of those things are in our current world. Check out the latest¬†Keto x3 reviews.

The good news is, you don’t have to change everything¬†at the same time. In fact, the trick to healthy living is making small changes‚ÄĒtaking more steps each day,1 adding fruit to your cereal, having an extra glass of water, or saying no to that second helping of buttery mashed potatoes. One thing you can do right now to make your lifestyle healthier is to¬†move more.

Benefits of Physical Activity

You know you need to exercise, but there are many¬†excuses¬†not to do it. You’re too busy, don’t know where to start, you’re¬†not motivated¬†or you’re¬†afraid you’ll injure yourself. Maybe you¬†think exercise has to be really hard or it isn’t good enough. Read more about¬†Exipure benefits.

It’s great if you can spend time¬†exercising‚ÄĒmeaning you’re sweating, working in your¬†target heart rate zone,¬†or doing something to¬†strengthen your body. But it doesn’t always have to be that way.¬†Moderate¬†activities like chores, gardening and walking can make a difference.2

Whatever definition you have about what exercise is or isn’t, the bottom line is that exercise is movement. Whether it’s walking around the block or running a marathon, that¬†movement is exercise and every time you move more than you normally do, it counts. These are the best¬†Exipure reviews.

Healthy Weight Loss or Maintenance

Even if you opt for small changes, the benefits are still pretty amazing. For example, increasing your activity level can help you to reach and maintain a healthy weight. If you are currently overweight, small steps toward that goal can have an impact.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notes that if you are overweight, reduction of 5 to 10% of your total body weight can help lower blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar.

In fact, you don’t even have to have a goal to lose weight, especially if you have trouble sticking to a program. Why not focus on being healthy to start and not worry about the weight loss because as you move more, you may find that you start losing some additional weight too.

This campaign will launch in 3, 2…

March 31st, 2013 No comments

Some of you guys may already know this, but I’m about to launch a crowdfunding campaign for “Ghost of a Tale”. In fact the launch date is only 3 days away: Tuesday April 2nd!

The campaign will be hosted on Indiegogo and will offer some great rewards (those are called “Perks” in Indiegogo language). Among which a figurine of the uncanny undead armored rats that plague the small island of Periclave.

So stay tuned, as tomorrow I’ll give you an exclusive look at the figurines!

Catastrophic Hard-Drive Failure?

March 20th, 2013 1 comment

Bit of a panic this morning, as I discovered that the entire hard drive partition on which resides the “Ghost of a Tale” Unity project has disappeared. It took me a moment to realize that everything was lost; the entire game project. Gone.

Overnight, Windows thought it would be a good idea to wipe out everything on a couple of hard drive partitions. For what reason? I do not know. Is that a sign that my computer is dying? Could be. Is it a sign that Microsoft’s software engineers made a tiny little boo-boo in the recent Windows 7 update? Possible.

After a couple of tense moments and infructuous reboots I managed to resurrect the game partition (although not the other partition, which seems very much gone) using Partition Wizard. And after some tests, it looks like the hard-disk itself is not to blame, which seems to incriminate software error.

In any case, it is NOT a pleasant experience. I am what you would call a backup-paranoid, which means I always have two recent backups stored in different locations at any time. But still, discovering that your hard work has simply vanished without warning is a bit chilling.
