So, I get up this morning and go to work. It’s snowing a little, but blowing off the road easily enough. When I get out of work five hours later, it is to the worst driving conditions of the year. Ridiculous bad. Awful. Atrocious. And so I’ve decided not to leave my house until further notice. But what to do with my time? The weather guys are pretty elusive on when the blizzard-like conditions are going to let up, so I have a lot of time to fill.
Pretty right? WRONG. Utterly horrifying more like.
So, we’ve been meaning to do a craft adventure for a while and I figure this is the perfect time for it. Milli and I have decided some time ago that it is time for us to build a cardboard city, then dress up as monsters, and then destroy said city. We got the idea
from www.somethingpositive.net (around year 2010) out of the blue one day, and have been collecting cardboard ever since to save up for our own city. The monster costumes may be beyond our ken, but we aim to try.
And that being said, I’m going to go take a nap instead.
So today Gremlin gave me this link (he gave me hints too, but you can’t have any): http://www.ludomancy.com/games/today.php?lang=en
I have decided that I love it. And because I love it you need to love it too. That’s all there is to it.
In the last update, I fixed up the input support, so now I can read the mouse location within a window. Here are the results.
Cursor location in window: 38 pixels right, 46 down.
When we last left our intrepid heroes, they had earned this much SCIENCE!
The tech tree so far
Oh look, only 70 more SCIENCE! until solar panels! And I just unlocked the Science Jr. module!
When we last left our intrepid Kerbals, Jebediah had just gathered me some Science! Where exactly he got it from is largely irrelevant.
Science to SPEND!
The important part is that we’ve got some science. So let’s start spending that science.
This is Kerbal Space Center.
Where the magic happens!
November 1-3 this year, there was an event called the Colorado Springs Startup Weekend. It’s not annual, because there were two this year, but this was the second one. I perhaps was not the kind of person they usually expect to have there, but I attended with plans to learn about starting a company and maybe show off what I could do, and I achieved everything I had initially set out to do. OK, mostly.
Most notably, I ended up working on a program that had some rudimentary GUI functionality, which meant I had to refine and learn some new portions of how the user interfaces with the computer. Particularly, a mouse, and panes. Hey wait, I can do mouse inputs now! That means no more of this:
The worst way to make pictures
It’s time for this!
Werkkzeug 4, by Farbrausch, who are awesome.
