John Hattan has been working steadily in the casual game-space since the TRS-80 days and professionally since 1990. After seeing his small-format games turned down for what turned out to be Tandy's last PC release, he took them independent, eventually releasing them as several discount game-packs through a couple of publishers. The packs are actually still available on store-shelves, although you'll need a keen eye to find them nowadays. He continues to work in the casual game-space as an independent developer, largely working on games in Flash for his website, The Code Zone (www.thecodezone.com). His current scheme is to distribute his games virally on various web-portals and widget platforms. In addition, John writes weekly product reviews and blogs (over ten years old) for www.gamedev.net from his home office where he lives with his wife and daughter in their home in the woods near Lake Grapevine in Texas.

All things programming.
Every time somebody tweets about how we should "inpeach" the president, God raises Edwin Newman from the dead and re-kills him.
If a waiter ever pissed in the gazpacho of a person who got a $77k tax writeoff for their Olympic Dressage Horse, I'd probably forgive him.
"Don't make me go all Mitzi Gaynor on your ass!" didn't have the visceral punch that I was going for.
