...this is what I do for a living now. Be warned: the first four or five
episodes are extremely crass, and contain scenes of vomiting, shitting, and
tesicle-chewing. It's supposed to get less shock-for-shock's-sake as the
story goes on. Supposedly.
Oh yes, and I had a birthday this past July.
My Weird Life: did programming on a Flash game for Spümcø
(link to game when it's public), about to start on another one, and then the web
toon network gig that's been held up half a year by the lawyers is finally
going to start! Hooray!
Finally got a Playstation, too. Six games so far, all of which are some sort
of platformers, three of which are 2D. Retro? Me? Never.
No updates in a loong time, I know. My attention wandered to other things,
such as going to live in the corner of a friend's apartment while I keep on
beating against getting into animation, and finally giving up the Amiga after
holding onto it far longer than any sane person would - I've been spending
the last couple of weeks configuring a scavenged PPC Mac clone (Motorola StarMax 3000/180) to something resembling my liking. (For potential OS flamers: All OSs
suck, but some are more sucky than others. Windows makes my blood pressure rise
every time I try to do anything; Linux and Be have even smaller sets of tools
for doing anything besides programming than the Amiga did. The Mac wins by being
the most inoffensive to me. PC games leave me cold; I'm quite happy emulating
consoles for my gaming desires.)
The Squirrel Nut Zippers
I worked on has popped up on the net. Careful, the files are hugemungous.
It also took first prize in the music video category at the Vancouver
Effects and Animation Festival.
Addendum: in case that link died, or is too slow, or whatever, you
can also now find the video on
Spümcø's website (they had no involvement with it, they just liked it).
The last two scenes are my work.
Holly was down. And my mother visited iRL. Finally fixed counter thing
and went something like public.
Submitted Simpsons test. Wish me luck.
Working all week on other stuff: Simpsons test, the Secret Archive
Proposal Discussion, and thinking about moving this whole site to
rdwarf.com as soon as I rewrite my multudinous scripts in perl
(instead of the unportable ARexx)
Lots of procrastination on important RL stuff. I need to get my scaly
buns in gear!
The auto-generated HTML started breaking; I fixed it. One of those 'why
did it ever work in the first place?!?' typo bugs...
Brought back the old custom 404 and got the problem
with cgis breaking when accessed via /~peganthyrus/ fixed.
Oh, and I killed the guestbook a while back because nobody ever
Finally got around to tweaking the auto-generated portion of my
HTML - I say 'finally' because I worked out the fixes late last
November! The top bar is now stretchy; try dragging your browser window
out as wide as you like and watch it resize. Cool. Also, the page full of
miscellaneous images should display properly on
Netscape - at least it works fine on the Mac 4.08, where previously it
was mysteriously screwy.
Added a surrealist comic book.
Wrote another rant about the state of
furfandom, and decided to make a page just for
rants. Also made some pretty link
images for you to swipe.
Installed and prettified a guestbook.
Accidentally deleted a bunch of access counts. Oops.
Finally re-wrote the random clothing
Rewrote 'talk' to get rid of dubious form and just contain my email
