An update on Wavatars:
Yes, I know recent changes to Gravtar functionality (actually, a complete re-write from Ruby to PHP) has broken my Wavatars plugin. I haven’t found time to fix it yet. This is doubly annoying because WordPress 2.5 is coming out very soon, and it will have built-in support for Gravatars. I have no idea how my plugin will work with a system like that. My worry is that it won’t, or that my plugin will become an ugly hack that runs independent of the integrated system. I might need to make small changes, or I may need to re-write the blasted thing. I dunno.
I don’t really have time to spend on it, and now I’m facing a situation where I might fix the plugin only to have the whole thing become obsolete in a week. Or perhaps require a re-write. I could install the upcoming WordPress 2.5 release candidate and find out, but that would take more time I don’t have.
Anyway, all of this whining is here to you know that:
- Yes, I’m aware of the problem.
- No, I can’t fix it right now.
Several people have fixed my plugin themselves. Someone actually sent me a .diff this morning, which resolved the problem and also cleaned things up a bit. If I manage to get time I’ll update the plugin, but I can’t make any promises.
Starcraft: Bot Fight
Let's do some scripting to make the Starcraft AI fight itself, and see how smart it is. Or isn't.
The Biggest Game Ever
Just how big IS No Man's Sky? What if you made a map of all of its landmass? How big would it be?
The game was a dud, and I'm convinced a big part of that is due to the way the game leaned into its story. Its terrible, cringe-inducing story.
Project Button Masher
I teach myself music composition by imitating the style of various videogame soundtracks. How did it turn out? Listen for yourself.
Was it a Hack?
A big chunk of the internet went down in October of 2016. What happened? Was it a hack?
