    Nope, sorry. The completed game is my only motivation. I don't
    care about anything else -- and I'm still programming (sometimes).
    Personally, I don't like the actual act of programming. It's boring,
    and leads to a lot of frustration. I swear, there have been bugs
    that have almost caused me to cry.

    Oh, and let's not forget how bad your eyes start to hurt after
    staring at a monitor for 3+ hours (with all the lights in the room
    turned off). And your back -- my habbit of slouching in my chairs
    has molded me into a Quasimoto-esque shape. I'm hideous, and
    I blame it on the computer....

    But if it means that, in the end, I'd have created my own game,
    my own characters, my own little ethic-like world -- I'll suffer
    through it.
    Staying away from General.
