day 1 - I have a black screen!
I set up a github repository and made an Allegro-Python project which can read keyboard and mouse input and... display an entirely black screen!
I also tried it on my ancient Mac and in Wine and it did work in both - so from now on I'll stay in Linux only and can keep the distribution aspect off my mind. As long as there's a Python 3 available it should at least be possible to get it working on OSX and Windows.
My plan is to have a game where you flow down a river. Let's see how much I can get done, unfortunately will have to work all week as well and not have a lot of time for pyweek.
