This is great! The domain name wfgames.com just expired and I was able to pick it up. So now I have whalefoodgames.com and wfgames.com so I can officially start setting up my company! First things first, I need some business cards. I bet there are companies with some cool business card templates I can buy...

I should rename this blog "Technology commitment issues." I'm pretty sure I'm done with my objective c affair. It's just so ... verbose. Not very conducive to rapid iteration. Maybe I've been spoiled by C#, but after spending almost an hour trying to figure out the right way to do a two dimensional array I'm pretty sure I'm going to switch to Lua and Moai. But not right away. I think it will be educational to at least get my basic prototype working first before I rewrite everything. That way I at least know some of what's going on under the hood before I decide to ignore it all.

I know I said I wasn't going to use Heroku in my last post, and instead use a combination of nodjitsu and dynamodb. Well, now I've decided to use heroku for everything. It's just a more mature product than nodejitsu right now and there's much better documentation. It's also really easy to get up and running. Need a database? Just click the "add on" button and you're set. Also, free is nice. I was able to get a single dynamo (like a micro instance) up and running with a 500 mb Mongodb add on from MongoLab all for zero monies. Not a bad deal.
