Weekend Reading: Tales from Journal Land

Posted by Gaiiden, in Weekend Reading 12 July 2014 · 490 views

Weekend Reading: Tales from Journal Land Ohh an entry image. What is it? Well, it's not programming a game but instead programming in a game, as I write some code (that works! Amazing!) for an autonomous rover in Kerbal Space Program. And with that I'll leave another shameless plug here for @KSA_MissionCtrl.

But it's time for a break from all that to see what's been going on around here this past week. Here are entries from 7/7 - 7/12
