Wow, this blog hasn't seen any new content for years. You might be interested in more recent biking stuff posted on
. For older electronics geekery, carry on.
It has recently come to my attention that I failed to post here about my entry for Iron Coder 2, Fuzzy Freddy.
The API that time around was CoreGraphics, and the theme was Time.
Fuzzy Freddy is an action-packed game of adventure, romance, and hygiene. It is a Universal binary and is best viewed in at least 1280×1024.
I’m pretty happy about how it turned out.

Iron Coder 4 is quickly coming to a close. My entry is Close. We’ll see in a few hours how it compares against everyone else’s.
Here’s the description from the readme:
Close is an intense psychological thriller of a game, where the player must avoid getting their personal space invaded by coworkers in a highly detailed workplace environment.
Use your mental and physical abilities to your fullest to defend yourself against these intrusions.
Using Apple’s Core Image technology, Close provides a level of visual quality never before seen in a game of its kind.

Edit: Okay, I’ve been caught. It’s a clone of Daleks. Enjoy the bonus level.
[Update: This is probably pretty useless now, since this feature has been built-in to VoodooPad for two major releases now. It’s not in the free version, but neither is the scripting. If for some reason, you’re still using VoodooPad 2, please enjoy!]
I was musing the other day about the apparent lack of a way to embed a file directly into VoodooPad. So I turned to the semi-experimental plugin interface.
Now you can enjoy the fruits of my labor. Just look at the file embedding menu off of the plugin menu. A file takes up an entire page and links up like anything else in VoodooPad. Just click on the link and it opens up.
Double click EmbedFile.vcplugin and VoodooPad will install it for you.
