octopus

More about Octopodes

All the octopodes (well, except for the bonus two that tirinian commissioned) are either delivered or on their way (unless someone else wants to play!), and the Royal Artifacts are finally done.

On the other side of things, I'm starting to get the hang of mysql and PHP. It's a lot of fun getting to obsess about learning something new, with a project to play with, though it leaves me a little distracted during things like conversations. Thinking like a database seems less of an effort than first thinking like an object was. The funniest bug of the evening: "Don't put a <br> in your SQL query." My usual debugging technique of "print statements everywhere!" is totally unable to help with this.
