World of GOO!

Wednesday, October 15th, 2008

We downloaded World of Goo for the Wii last night (1500 WiiPoints, as I recall, so ~$15), and it’s lovely. Wonderful. Toe-curlingly awesome. I think I try to complete each level just to hear the little goo-balls all whisper, “OooOOOoooh!” as they reach the pipe to the next level. Highly recommended, double-plus especially to those [...]

Get thee to a Photoshop, SVG!

Tuesday, October 7th, 2008

I figured that importing an SVG file into Photoshop would be similar to dealing with an EPS. Naturally, I figured wrong. What the hell, Adobe? Wasn’t SVG your idea in the first place? Google knows everything, however, and pointed me at Inkscape, an open-source vector graphics editor. Install. Open SVG. Save as EPS. Off to [...]

The pros and cons of handmade tools.

Friday, July 25th, 2008

Once upon a time, I had a [fingerwiggle]proper[/fingerwiggle] photoblog, powered by MT, that automagically scattered thumbnails hither and yon as I updated it. Seeing as my picture output is only a fraction of what it once was, though, I decided to cook up my own little upload/thumbnailer tool. It works brilliantly (though I really need [...]

Note to self: Content does not spontaneously appear.

Monday, July 7th, 2008

When I started shaking the dust off this site, the basic concept was: left column for links, middle column for pictures, right column for site-specific/personalish content. I figured this would be easy, considering how much I like to navel-gaze the second I look LJ’s direction. If this doesn’t start getting easy in practice as well [...]

Wait, I thought we’d buried image rollovers.

Monday, June 16th, 2008

Yet here I am, staring at an interface full of guide lines in Photoshop. How very 2001 of me. I patted down the Internet in hopes that rollovers got a little less annoying during my sabbatical, and it seems they actually may have. There are two or three pages in Google devoted to CSS image [...]

Boom Blox may be hazardous to your triceps.

Thursday, June 12th, 2008

It would appear that the Fabulous Boymeat and I are either children or an entire family, because that’s who Boom Blox is supposed to be fun for. We picked it up a couple days ago, and have played it every evening since. It’s Jenga meets Breakout meets the simple love of throwing things at other [...]

My plants are growing.

Friday, June 6th, 2008

This shouldn’t be post-worthy — I mean, that’s what seeds are supposed to do, once you’ve plant them — but my thumb is more black than green. About the only things I can’t kill are my mother’s Mystery Green Plant(tm) and my jade plant — which, upon checking Wikipedia for a link, I discover I’ve [...]

Wii have a Wii.

Thursday, May 15th, 2008

(Don’t shoot me, I was told it’s necessary to make a play on words like that with one’s first Wii post.) After hunting high and low, and having our hearts broken a handful of times by stores that would display Wii boxes but not actually have any in stock (HMV, I’m lookin’ at YOU), we [...]

WordPress-to-LJ crossposting with custom fields.

Wednesday, May 14th, 2008

I’ve tweaked the plugin to include the related link in LJ crossposts, so folks can make with the clickie directly, as opposed to needing to come directly to the post. Information on how it was done is available here, in case anyone else is trying to figure out how to add their own custom fields. [...]

Inaugural something-or-other.

Monday, May 12th, 2008

I seem to’ve run out of excuses to stall the (re-re-re-)launch of the site any longer, so here we are. I’ve tested in Firefox and IE7. If you’re using IE6, you’ve probably already killed the window or are writing me a scornful, “Your site’s busted,” e-mail; if it’s the latter, I shall smile sweetly and [...]

A confession.

Sunday, May 11th, 2008

The ability to give any CSS element a :hover declaration is one of the hottest things ever. PS: EVER.
