as for me, I've been keeping myself busy trying to teach myself some 3d programs (maya mostly), balancing regular work with searching for career opportunities and releasing updates for My Life at War on time.
Speaking of Extrasolar (and with it also of Sciror). I've been working/pondering on some potential short comic format scripts that are set in an Ecorium. The stuff itself is related to another project, but that project might be a nice way to promote these settings and with it TFM.
