  1. VSNS v2.3.3 is released!

    Published

    Tonight marks the release of my VSNS v2.3.3. Although it should perhaps be v2.4, I'm too lazy to rename all of that stuff, meh. You should upgrade to v2.3.3 because--perhaps surprisingly--upgrading in the future will become easier. Version 2.3.3 features a new "Update" page that runs a script which compares your version of VSNS with the latest version on my site, and tells you if you need to update.

    Unless I encounter bugs in 2.3.3,…

  2. R.I.P. John Morgan

    Published

    John Morgan, memorable Air Farce comedian with character such as Mike from Canmore and Jock McBile, died on Monday.

    I grew up on Air Farce, and John Morgan was my favourite of the troupe . . . it's said to see so many good actors dying when I'm so young . . .

  3. Disney will bring us the meaning of life

    Published

    Woohoo! A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie is becoming a reality. Check out the trailer on Yahoo!

    I can't wait to see it. Too bad Douglas Adams didn't live long enough to see his dreams for a movie become reality. . . .

    Oh and Disney, if you mess this up, then I shall curse you unto eternity.

    I made another scene today using trueSpace. You can view it in my gallery. Soon I'll…

  4. Happy Birthday, Dad!

    Published

    It's my dad's birthday today . . . so happy birthday, Dad. If you're reading this, then it's time to close the browser and play some Freecell. . . .

    I've added a great new feature to the VSNS. With v2.3.3, you will be able to pin items at any time, or unpin a pinned item rather than deleting it. Version 2.3.3 will be released shortly.

  5. Moment of silence please

    Published

    Today we solemnly commemorate to those brave Canadian men and women who gave their lives for our country. This day, called Remembrance Day, serves to honour their memory and their sacrifices.

  6. Very minor updates

    Published

    I've updated VSNS to v2.3.2. No real important changes, just some things to make the code cleaner and the control panel easier to use.

  7. Dream of fridges

    Published

    I've been trying Macromedia Dreamweaver at school for the past few days, and it is pretty cool. While the WYSIWYG-created results do not produce the cleanest code, I can always manually edit that to my specifications, and it is a very useful tool to have. Unfortunately, the price tag is rather large: $399 USD!

    Our fridge stopped refrigerating things. So we'll have to repair it or get a new one. Until then, there's…

  8. Happy Thanksgiving

    Published

    Happy Thanksgiving to Canadians, eh. Happy Columbus Day to Americans.

    I watched House of Sand and Fog on Saturday. It was an incredibly depressing movie, and drowning with symbolism. If you haven't seen it, don't watch it.

    Today, I watched Space's Miniseries Marathon. I didn't get up in time for V: The Miniseries, but I saw V: The Final Battle. I'm not a big V fan, but it was good. Then there was

  9. Another day, another year older

    Published

    Happy Birthday, eh . . .

    I'm 15 now. Nothing much is different, save that I'm 15. One year older. Hmm . . . one more year until I have to think of a new excuse not to drive. Up until now it's been "Oh, I'm too young" . . . in a year it will be something different altogether.
