      Not sure what they are up to. AFAIK they had ActionScript until Flash MX, then they switched to Javascript or, if they still call it script, it is very close... a friend of mine was selling Flash plugins and told me so.

      I studied C++ in high school, Java in uni but both the basics. Been writing PHP since then, but it's still a long while I don't properly code, I mean head-down coding.

      I was planning on getting back to practice Javascript exactly because any job opening in web design/interface requires that, but I'm really struggling in doing anything after work :( I would like to give a proper shot at mapping first... I'm trying to come up with a routine that will allow me to properly concentrate on like a map and a website/UX project, but my rota is incredibly hectic, and although they should be giving me 2 weeks notice, we are still dragging along 1 at a time :ubermad:

      I did quite a bit of ActionScript and it's basically just ECMAScript with some extra bits. ECMAScript is for all intents and purposes JavaScript, which persists as a legacy name. I'm sure you know this, but it's nothing to do with Java. :D

      Seems unfortunate that lots of games are still using Flash though, they could easily do everything with basically the same open technologies that the web uses now. I think SimCity does actually. Still, skills should be transferable without too much pain.

      Small tip for getting into the habit of working on personal stuff is to start with a ridiculously attainable routine, such as spending 10 minutes working on something four times a week. Once you have that down, upgrade it to 30 minutes, etc. I find this works well for all kinds of things, including exercise. :cool:

      Ye another downer is the exercise, I got bored of my routine so not going to gym even when I could. I say "better study" and then I don't. I wanted for a lonf time have a trainer give me a new routine but with this rota is impossible to fix an appointment as they are very busy :-\

      Sorry, I know this sounds like just trying to find excuses...
