Well, I was just being a buffoon and saying that I hope I get it done before doomsday! But the 23rd is the date that I've been exposed to. It was the date that was used in 2 shows that I've watched about it recently. It's popular in google search results too. I did a little research and it seems that the 21st is perhaps the most popular, but the 23 is an alternative that some believe in. Here's what the Wikipedia had to say:

I don't know where the idea that the world would end this day originated.  The Maya calendar ends on that day, but the Maya never said it would be the end of the world or of time.  I guess, someone really wanted to make a big story out of this, because there is really nothing to it.  ;)

Maybe the Maya thought their calendar was long enough as it was and would have continued it when the end of the calendar was closer?

Anyway, guessing the exact date of the end of the world based on a calendar is definitely dumb.  :crazy:  I mean, humans decided that they would make a system to calculate the passing of seasons, days, years and they gave numbers to the years, but it is nothing more than a human way to measure the passage of time.  Thinking the world would end on a specific date because of a mathematical coincidence (passing from year 999 to 1000 or the 6th day of the 6th month of year 666 for example) is to be quite gullible.  For me, it is like thinking that the earth is at the center of the universe because every star seem to rotate around the earth and because we, humans, are living on it!  We humans are so egocentric.  ;)

But, it is quite fun to make the others believe that the end of the world is coming and watch them crawl under their beds!  Ha ha!  :laugh:

Not that it has anything to do with our doom, but the "era-2012" is all about the great "Galactic Alignment" (http://alignment2012.com/whatisga.htm).

I'm still with ya Vincent - it's all a hoax, but I'm saying there's a bit more to it than their calendar ending.  :crazy:
...Some are also watching a 6000 year Jewish calendar count down to exactly Dec. 21, 2012 too.  ???

Here are are my predictions for december 21st 2012...  You will see what a great seer I am!

First, it wil be dark.  Then the sun will rise and light will fill the world.  The sky will light up and the stars will fade out.  Eventually, the sun will come down and the world will be dark again.  At that time, the stars will come out of hiding. Finally, it will be december 22nd 2012 and it will be winter.   :P

Wow!  That was quite an epiphany  :pray:

lol!  :laugh:

Oh, and knowing myself, I will realize that december 21st 2012 has occured probably a week after it, since nothing special will happen on that day.   ;)

Some of my predictions:

I think I might be standing in line-ups doing my usual last minute Christmas shopping on about Dec 23rd-ish!

I will probably also be waiting to pickup a copy of Halo 4 or something... Or an xbox 720? ...Nah, too early!

...Maybe I'll be getting rich off a great new XBOX game I've developed with SGDK-XNA...!  :laugh:

Kind of funny how the topic changed.

Hey TheLaw,

Are you still working on your hybrid SGDK-XNA project?  How is it going?

Last time I checked he was still planning it. But I haven't talked to him for a while, since my laptop is getting repaired. :(

@TonyX...Hope ta see ya back in 2010! I need your XBOX expertise!

Oh, hey Vincent. Yeah I'm still gonna do it - for sure. But 'tis the season to not have much time on the computer!
I'm hoping the rubber will hit the road in January. (That's my new years resolution!)

I have all my ducks in a row, and I've got some plans drawn up (I have a big stack of papers here in my desk with sketches and scratches!). I haven't actually done really anything with the SGDK project itself. I've been evaluating and gaining experience with some of the other utilities that SGDK-X will use. It actually has taken more time than I originally thought to go over these utilities with a fine tooth comb and make sure the capabilities I require are complete and bug free, and play nice with all the other stuff.  (And just when you get comfortable - they release a new version..!)

But most of that is done. So once the HO-HO's over it's time to throw down.

(Actually I've been busy playing little big planet too. Just looking at that game gets my creative juices flowing!)

Any questions or ideas/feature requests? ...I'm still very open to ideas!

Meantime - I guess it's not too early to say... Merry Christmas to all you hard working scrolling game developers! I hope Santa brings you a million dollar game idea! ;) ;) ;)

You can count on me for 2010! I got my laptop back! Turns out the problem was my wireless adapter was not working because I pressed F2 to turn it off. F2 does not make a good save button.  :no:

AHAHAHA... sorry but that's funny.

It only disables the wireless adaptor if you press both fn+f2, at least, with most laptops.

Don't feel sorry. I thought it was pretty funny too! lol  :laugh:

Yah, what you said is most likely what happened. Since the ctrl was near, I perhaps pressed fn and F2 together, instead of ctrl.
