Hopefully you've noticed that I've updated my website. I stopped using my custom written wiki software and switched to a really nice open source cms/blogging system, WordPress. Erin and I are going to both be contributing to this single blog, so this is like your one stop D&E blogging shop. Also, you can add comments, search, and check out the RSS feed.
I just got this ad in my email from an upstanding online merchant. It just doesn't add up!
It may not look all that different, but supbro.com has a completely new design. Its roots are based upon something we nerds like to call a "wiki". The basic idea of a wiki is that anyone visiting the site can edit it. For instance, to create a new page on this site, all you would do is type the name in that input box on the left, click go, and then you will be able to click a link to edit it! Fun, eh? Try it out!
I saw this article on slashdot about a brain teaser game, and it got me thinking. I wanted to see if I could solve it. So I whipped up a little flash applet (since I can do that now). I still haven't been able to solve it… let me know if you can. The point is to get the big 2×2 square from the top left corner to the bottom right corner. UPDATE: I solved it!
Thanks to data from the U.S. Census and my newly acquired flash skills, and my honed Perl skills, I was able extrapolate this map from about 60 MB of data, a map of my neighborhood. Neat huh?
I've been spending a lot of time lately learning Flash, and finally got my first flashy website addition up…check out my dynamic supbro.com logo (hint: reload the page)! I think there's an appropriate time and place for flash. I refuse to make annoying stuff, so don't worry. Just enjoy coming to sb.c As a bonus, the new flasy logo is only 1391 bytes instead of a whopping 28764 for the old version!
Thanks to blog caching that I implemented, you should notice that supbro.com loads very quickly, much quicker than it used to. Yay!
From the continuing series of fun flash games, here is ANOTHER! Thanks, Todd!
I whipped up a little page that has
all my favorite comics in one easy-to-view place. Enjoy!
This one is fun. Try to throw the crumpled up pieces of paper in the trash can.
