Check out Flyatron on Github! Gameplay is barebones (you move, you shoot, you die), and buggy, but it runs. Current issues: Owing to the order in which mines despawn after detonating, bullets following the first bullet will despawn until the explosion animation concludes. Ordering, again: If the player hits a mine at their spawn point […]

The Walk

From a few weeks back.

You know you are arguing with my family when…

‎”Can you buy me string bin liners?” “Sure, what size?” “STRING bin liners.” “What size are they?” “They have a drawstring.” “What size is the bin?” “I don’t know. Just buy ones with a drawstring.” “How do you not know how big the bin is?” “When I go to Dunnes, I just buy the string […]

Hallowe’en Ignite!

Ubuntu died

I did an in-place do-release-upgrade yesterday. The laptop was not completely plugged in, and the battery went out when the upgrade process was about 75% complete. Since then, things have been…very interesting due to the lack of 64-bit recovery media in the hackerspace.

My summer?

[WOW] Main’s Transmogrification

More of the new transmogrification

On my last day in Cliffoney

I had to make one last run out to Cliffoney to settle matters with the landlord, and I killed some time wandering the beach while waiting for the bus back into Sligo.
