Any day but Friday Dev Watch 06/08/2012

A weekly post on Developer posts from the eve-o forums & other locations. Its not intended as a complete report on every dev post, but a selection of more interesting or funny posts made. Either way I’m hoping it might help some people cut through the swathes of bad posting on the eve-o forums to find the interesting tip-bits. enjoy!

This week’s Dev Watch has been rather delayed by illness. I realise that this is a few weeks in a row where Friday dev watch hasn’t been on Friday, but if I relegate it to just “Dev Watch” Ill never do it! So for now you’ll just have to put up with it!

(not so) Friday Dev Watch 10/07/2012

Starting this week I’m going to trial giving a weekly post on Developer posts from the eve-o forums & other locations. Its not intended as a complete report on every dev post, but a selection of more interesting or funny posts made. Either way I’m hoping it might help some people cut through the swathes of bad posting on the eve-o forums to find the interesting tip-bits. enjoy!







An early Dev watch this week, as in a fit of real life I will be helping run Hospitality for Guildfest from tomorrow until Monday. If by any weird co-incidence any readers are going along to watch, you can enjoy thinking of me waiting hand and foot for the acts from 7am -1am everyday. The next Dev watch will cover from the 11/07/12 until 21/07/12 (boy that’s going to be a big one!), after which I will attempt to resume normal service! Here goes:
