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...

Hapi Djus

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...

Awwwwww

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

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!

Enjoy.

How to kill yourself in five easy steps

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...

Coding and Abstraction

I'm a sucker for advice. Which isn't to say that I'm particularly keen on receiving it, even on the rare occasions when I have the sense to solicit it. I'm much more keen on giving it, and usually on occasions when it isn't solicited. I'm sure this says something highly unflattering about my character, but I'm not asking for your advice...

The Habanero Chronicles: Phase 2

Phase 2: Engine Framework
After the prototyping done in Phase 1, it's time to take the rough, dirty, and basically entirely stolen code and turn it into a framework that can be used for the future. This means it needs to be extensible, flexible, cleanly designed, and capable of handling all of the configuration and power that we need from the engine (stuff...

The Habanero Chronicles: Phase 1

Introduction
This is the story of a hobby game, built by an industry programmer (that'd be me) and co-designed by an avid gamer (that'd be my flatmate). This project is primarily for our own entertainment, although we hope to produce some tools and resources (and maybe even a finished game) that others can enjoy as well. I plan to make most or all of the...
