The Bag of Holding

Game Design

Posted by ApochPiQ, 20 January 2006 · 141 views

Every few weeks, I find myself in a position where I'm lurking around on GameDev, and my "regular" forums aren't updating. Usually these are the times when I rediscover forums like Software Engineering and Game Design, which never fail to have some really interesting stuff (despite moving very slowly). These discussions usually get me thinking about...

Article Update (of sorts)

Posted by ApochPiQ, 16 January 2006 · 103 views

So I was thinking of writing up the article that I threatened you all with. Actually, I've been thinking about it a lot. Originally, my intent was to do an analysis of abstraction methods and embedded languages in game development, and propose a mechanism for generating dialectic languages on-demand for generating rigid levels of abstraction...

Grandpa Jim

A week ago, on December 29th, my Grandpa Jim passed away. I found out by way of an email from my parents the next morning (well, it was technically afternoon, because I had that Friday off of work for the New Year's holiday, and there's no way in heck anyone is gonna catch me awake before noon on a day off).

Grandpa Jim wasn't technically my...

Assorted Crap

So I'm drinking another Bawls on Gin at the moment, surfing around a bit, getting ready to crack open the copy of Pulp Fiction that I just got from Netflix. I have three pieces of advice for my readers:

1. If you have not seen Pulp Fiction, rent a copy and see it.
2. If you have not signed up for Netflix, go do it. Now.

No, seriously - stop reading...

I think I might keep my flatmate. Lately he seems to be starting this trend of actually having some significant value, aside from being an efficient resource sink for my Moon Pies and other valuable edible commodities.

You see, he has concocted a drink. Anyone can invent a drink, but this one is really something. The inspiration came as we drained our...

Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my fourth and most recent nephew, Chase Andrew. All seven pounds, one ounce of Chase got permanently stuck with my weird and goofy family at about 7 AM on December 17th.

His big brother Chad is currently in a state of quantum flux, not entirely sure of whether to be jealous or overprotective. It's actually...

Delusions of Writing Ability

Posted by ApochPiQ, 19 December 2005 · 126 views

So I've been reading the forums instead of working on my own time, and I've started to see a lot of stuff cropping up that has to deal with abstraction and programming languages. I have a feeling that this is really not much different than usual, but now that I'm thinking about it, I'm seeing a lot more things that can be interpreted from that...

RED ALERT! Brain dump at twelve o'clock!

It is time yet again to dribble out a bunch of half-finished thoughts about things I don't really properly understand. For this episode, my topic of choice is code integrity.

First of all, let me buy myself some time by defining the phrase "code integrity" as I intend to use it. It might be worth noting that I just completely made that up, so it's probably...

Well, the submissions are pouring in... here's a quick look at my submission, CartRunner, and what went into making it. Source is included, but be warned, it isn't pretty!


How to kill yourself in five easy steps

Posted by ApochPiQ, 06 December 2005 · 150 views

1. Obtain a large bottle of A1 Tabasco steak sauce.
2. Obtain a bottle of Tabasco Habanero sauce.
3. Obtain a bottle of Jameson's Irish whisky.
4. Combine. (I'd list proportions, but it was done quite blindly, so who knows. Mix to taste I guess.)
5. Consume. Several slices of fried Spam makes a good base.

My digestive tract hates me now... but damn, it...
