node.js, javascript, web
A few days ago, I talked about how easy it is to get Node.JS installed , regardless of your platform, and get code running that shows something in your browser. Whether you're on Windows or OS X or Linux, there is only one package to install that gives you access to an easy-to-configure web server running in a language you probably already know: JavaScrip...

Getting started with Node.JS part 1: Setup

Posted by capn_midnight, 07 January 2014 · 3,387 views

I had been hearing about Node.JS for a while. "It's JavaScript on the server!" I mostly ignored it, as ASP.NET was forced on me at the time and I hadn't yet given employed life the finger and a flaming bag of poo on its doorstep . What does "JavaScript on the server" even mean?

Well, it's a little more than just...

So what happened in between?

Well, after getting my degree in Computer Science, I ended up bouncing around between jobs. I've had--depending on how you count--6 to 8 jobs in the last twelve yea...

Story-Driven Game Framework: an Enterprise Approach

Posted by capn_midnight, 02 September 2008 · 168 views

I've been talking with a couple of guys here at work about game development. We're all avid gamers across all different types of games (i.e. electronic, board, pen-and-paper), and we are all fairly successful enterprise software developers.

Grad School Bid, 2.0

Posted by capn_midnight, 19 February 2008 · 173 views

Okay folks, I've got the bug again for wanting to go to grad school. I was kind of disheartened by the lack of response from my last go-around with grad school applications, so I'm going to need a lot of moral support this time around.

I'm looking to do Computer Science with studying graphics in some way. I have a lot of ideas involving optical illusions...

So, I'm driving in my Fiji Blue 2008 Honda Civic Si to work at the Conservatory for Bad-Assery one morning along this really sick-ass section of road that runs along a cliff face plummeting down into this deep ravine full of rocks and trees and shit like out of a movie like Lord of the Rings or something, when this giant, fire-breathing dragon comes...
