Don´t be shy and donate a bit of your electricity to support my work and make me able to give more work to you.
I have asked a couple of people to keep it running for a minute and results look promising. I may provide a classic donate options but I have to look into some legal issues first. It is not easy to find time for this because I have quite a few tasks at hand, including a new version of SmallTime that would fix some bugs present in current version,
I made a mod for two SCS Software games: Eurotruck simulator 2 and American Truck simulator. This mod changes the sun position in theese games according to day in year in real world. Nothing more to say about this except two pictures of comparing winter and summer time in their game.
Just a short note. You will not be seeing any more ads from Google on this website. This does not mean that website will end, everythin else will go as (slowly) normal. For me it means few hour a year more at work and for you it means more comfortable browsing experience.
More news tommorrow, update on SmallTime unfortunately may not come as soon as I planned. I have encountered hardware issues with my internal server so making finishing touches on a multiplatform project has become a HUGE PAIN.
But I made a mod for one game to test setup of my updated development tools as an attempt for appeacement with people I disapointed. (hey, this happens when somebody does something for you for free )
SmallTime 1.0e release is planned on 31st May 2017. Note that the release may be postponed by a week because intense testing is now in progress.
SmallTime 1.0e is a bugfix release with ground ready for new features and will be backwards compatible with version 1.0d.
Help with bug investigation
Some people don´t see the application icon in taskbar when they run smallTime. Instead they see default Java application icon(cofee on grey backgrond). It seems that only I and one other person have this problem. I have confirmnation of at least eight other machines where the icon is shown properly. Please let me know if you experience this bug. Post down here in the comment section or send me an e-mail to email@example.com
Thank you very much.
Linux version situation
Although I managed to run SmallTime properly on Linux, I still did not have time to setup the application installer and figure out how to make installed app run on every system startup. There are more ways to do this and I am looking into what will be the best option for me. SmallTime with Linux support (1.0f) will be released on 1st September 2017.
Just a fast update. I finally have few days of free time so I finished the version compatibility layer for SmallTime. It was a bit of a headache and proof of more internal code defective by design but everything is in place and now I am going to do some bug fixing. SmallTime 1.0e will be purely bugfix release with version compatibility test.
There is a slight possibility of a release this month but if there will be some issues it will be postponed to September 2017. Linux version is still not fuly figured out.
Nerderity Report 0.99h has been just released for Linux operating system. Features of Linux and Windows versions are now identical, except some platform specific code. It was a bit of a pain to create semi-proper Linux installer but it was worth it. Instalation is in fact even easier than on Windows now.
This is probably the last version of this game released and I will move my attention to further develop SmallTime and maybe the other project prototype. Problem is that because of more strict legislation in my country, it would be financialy very hard for me to fulfill my original vision of this protoype. But maybe it is for the best to turn it into something much more simple and maybe more fun.
As always, you can download the game here -> .
Have fun! But note that Linux version of Nerderity Report is in BETA stage because I don´t have it´s proper functionality tested on any other PC but mine…. yet.
Also note that more news about SmallTime will come soon. There is a little bug that needs to be fixed.
And one final thing: you can get some quick updates about my projects on Minds social network. https://www.minds.com/SmallSkillStudio
Just a quick update before I go to sleep. I just managed to install Linux operating system and launch SmallTime on it. Icons are obviously not loading for some reason but all other functionalities seem to be working.

More news when I will not have to work overtime on saturdays . Stay tuned
Just a short note: I will throw some more money into hardware in late August or early September where my Linux operating system will be. I have almost done setup of my development enviroment in a way that will allow me quick multiplatform deployment. That means that in a future, Windows and Linux versions of my projects will ALWAYS be released on the same day.
Meanwhile, a concept of my latest project has advanced to an early prototype phase. I cannot tell much more but I can tease you with a picture of some metal balls.
SmallTime 1.0d is finally going live. If you are using smalltime, I highly recommend you to download this new version due to some nice usability updates and bug fixes.
Warning: your events from 1.0c will not be ported to 1.0d. However, for next versions there will be a solid compatibility layer that will always convert your data to new version. I am sorry for any inconvenience.
new file saving system
there are now two types of events: countdown and timer. Timers have green color, countdowns are orange (better distinction in next versions)
when you edit an event, it will stay in place
events are separated by lines for better readability
bug #4: Using # symbol in event name or description causes program to fail. Program will not be able to start because data file gets corrupted.
bug #5: app will not start if msvcp100.dll is not present in your operating system. [this needs to be confirmed but it should work now]
