  1. Excuse me while I orient my object

    Published

    I was bored again . . . a few days ago I downloaded a C/C++ compiler called Dev-C++ and I'm going to start learning C++, with the eventual goal of making cool text-based games. But everyone has to start somewhere.

    Luckily my PHP experience is paying off, a lot of the stuff such as looping, conditions, all that heavy stuff is already known to me. The only really new concept is OOP—which isn't new,…

  2. Merry Christmas!

    Published

    Merry Christmas to anyone insane enough to visit my site.

    Merry Christmas to Elaine, Tovan, and Mak. You know who you are. Stargate SG-1 marathon in 18 hours, Tovan! Twenty-two hours of SG-1 Season Six! Muwahahahaha

  3. My first job

    Published

    I took down the Currently Reading section of the About Me page because I read too quickly to keep it up-to-date. In other website news, hopefully my webhost will now be stable.

    In real life, I got a job. I am sorting files and the contents of several boxes stored in the basement area used by the law firm where my dad works (he's a lawyer). It is technically my first job, and my first…

  4. 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,…

  5. 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 . . .

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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…
