Um, technically my other "incomplete" projects never actually got started because either
1) the design goals of the project could be met more easily by simply modifying a stock nerf gun
2) I came up with a better idea
CSHG was on hiatus because my health was extremely poor. It declined far enough that I also had to drop all of my classes for the past semester, which is setting me further away from completing my Bachelor's degree. I'm going to have to take summer classes again this year in order to fulfill my Language requirement in a reasonable amount of time.
It is also not the only thing I work on in my spare time. This past month has been the only month during the past year where I actually felt more like a normal human being than an incapable cripple. And seeing as how all of the other projects I'm working on have been in-progress longer than this one those are taking priority.
If you're under the impression I never finish anything then you know nothing about me. Simply poke through
Currently this project below is taking up most of my free time because I've been working on it for more than a year. It's also hogging most of my work areas that I would otherwise need to work on CSHG.http://www.ocforums....ad.php?t=394139
I'm hoping to make significant progress on it so that the case itself will be mostly done before the end of January. Until then CSHG will be on the back burner and will stay there until I have significant reason to work on it. I would like to have it finished before the next DCNO, but we'll have to see.
Oh, and I do also work part-time at a machine shop. But thankfully I get to set my own hours.
As for my health right now I'm on antibiotics to see if it curbs my symptoms because there's lingering thoughts that my symptoms could be the result of Lyme disease. But the prognosis is unclear and I went through all possible noninvasive arthritis medications with little or no effect on my well-being. If it ever again gets as bad as it had been between August and November the outlook on the rest of my life would be extremely bleak.
This is my "easy" and relatively stress free hobby...
So there you have it. My general schedule when I was healthy tended to include (in the following order of priority)
1. College part-time (9-12 credits a semester)
2. Working part-time (20 hours a week)
3. Computer Projects
4. Nerf Projects
5. Sick days watching mst3k episodes or playing video games
Now there should be no further need to respond to Deja Vu. Respond to me or the project from now on otherwise this thread will become a burden on the moderators.

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?
