Stuff About Ponymotes and Life

July 27, 2015

Seems like forever since I’ve posted. I’ve been so busy over the past month or so between work, a convention, and working on BetterPonymotes. Truth be told, the BPM Safari repo is actually pretty out of date now, but it’s not for a bad reason. As a matter of fact, I’m now a contributor to the BPM core repo! Since Typhos is busy working on other projects for the most part, he’ll just continue to add emotes as he has...

Apple Watch Unboxing

June 11, 2015

It arrived! While there is still no word from Apple on the developer program (though I suspect that they will comment on it soon enough. The developer backlash is pretty huge). I am happy to get my Apple Watch though, and while the photos didn’t turn out quite like how I was hoping they would (home renovations, so stuff is being moved around and the good lighting isn’t really an option), I hope you find the box contents interesting. One...

S O S E - Save Our Safari Extensions

June 9, 2015

Just a day after praising Apple for all of the things that they are doing with OS X, iOS, and Watch OS, I’m now quite miffed at them for what they announced just today. Now as you may remember, there used to be separate developer programs for each of the different Apple products available, but yesterday they announced the consolidation of those programs. What they neglected to mention until the email that I received today was that the Safari Developer...

Life Things

May 30, 2015

Hello everyone! It’s been a little while since I’ve posted, but I finally have a free weekend, so I figured that today was a perfect day for writing. Over the past couple of weeks, a lot of things have happened to me. One, I graduated from ECU (still waiting on them to send me my physical diploma), two, I went in for a job interview (my first real one), three, I got the job (I’m now a junior developer for...

BetterPonymotes - Now On Safari!

April 25, 2015

Happy day everypony on reddit! BetterPonymotes is now available natively on Safari. After hearing about Typhos dropping support for Safari because of his lack of resources and a low number of users, I was a bit disappointed since I was one of those users. After close to a year (or has it been longer?) of waiting for someone to create a port of BPM, I decided that thirty minutes on CodeCademy should be enough to at least get me started....

Cursed-Breakout v1.0 Release

April 6, 2015

It’s been a fun journey to get here, and now it’s time to officially christen this ship as it sets sail for public consumption. Cursed-Breakout is now officially released in its shiny version 1.0 form. When I started this project, I didn’t think that I’d actually go this far with it, but here we are now. The only thing left to do is to create a project page for it on my site, and then I’ll get started on whatever...

Cursed-Breakout v1.0 Beta 2

March 29, 2015

Here’s a new beta version to test. Now you don’t have to specify the file as an argument (though you still can if you want to) because this version ships with a title screen that contains a file selection menu. There is also a new debug feature that will be great for level makes: press s to skip a level. This way you can ensure that everything is laid out the way that is supposed to be. This will probably...

Cursed-Breakout v1.0 Beta 1

March 9, 2015

Here it is, the big version one-point-oh beta one. I had been starting to wonder if I would ever make it this far, but evidently I’m the persistent sort. I have learned a lot of things along the way, and there are still a few things that I will likely learn before the final release. I only expect one more beta before going gold, and I suspect that I will will only include the file selector and possible level verification....

New Website Things

February 28, 2015

Since the level system in cursed-breakout is taking a little longer to implement than I anticipated it to, I decided to take a break and work on the website. Notably, I have a real footer now with links that you can click to connect with me on the internet. There is also a new About page that replaces the old Contact page that I was using previously. Under the hood, I made a lot of little changes to the way...

Some *Breaking* News

February 20, 2015

Lets just say, I finally got the velocity change system working. It’s looking pretty good so far. I really can’t wait for you all to see this version. :) ‘Nuff said.
