What's been happening, what's new, what does tomorrow hold?

 

Rick&Morty Mario Just for Fun...


While they keep us waiting for the new season of Rick & Morty! What's even worse, they're teasing us and feeding us juicy tid-bits and snippets! Just to drive us crazy thirsty for more!!
So just for a bit of fun I created a Mario-Rick crossover! ;)

Pre-order your season 5 of R&M now! Order extra copies for friends and family ;)

Code-Misery (Pair Programming)


You'll at one point or another during your career hear about the amazing benefits of pair programming. Work as a team, together, on a single computer to 'double' your performance. But what happens when pair programming goes wrong? What could happen?


Then again, there are those that might say, "what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger".

Testing? Volunteer Game Testers (Test Your Skills)


I'm working on a port of the classic Mario game (the retro 2D version) - and I wanted some play testing. I've made a version of the game available if anyone wanted to volunteer and give it a try - test if you have 'skillz' - also to see if there are any bugs?

At the end of each level you can rate the difficulty and if you like coffee ;)
I've shown a few of the level mock-ups below so you can see how the levels are structured and what to expect.



Link to Game
The game runs in on a web page, doesn't require any installation or complex graphics and is just for fun.
You should be able to click on the link, and run it on a web page and use the cursor keys to move around.
It took me an hour or so to get into the groove before I was able to get through the first few levels. Not sure if the balance is right between the fun, frustration and anger!
To make it a little less painful, so you don't throw your computer out the window, if you do complete a level, then if you die, you continue from the level that you've last reached ;) So you can continue to progress and rate each level as you go :) If anyone gets through all the levels, email me! I won't believe it! No one has those skills! ;)

Time is flying past so fast! - Christmas Is Coming Again (2021!) Again!


A range of new articles on Javascript and Interactive Web-Based solutions are available, not to mention, research articles that explore cutting edge topics.

I'm sure you'll find something to feed your curiosity. As who can't resist opening the hud, and having a look at what's actually happening inside - optimization tricks, software projects, file formats, processors, compilers, assembly, so many juicy topics ....

Season of Gouls and Ghosts - Halloween!


Just because it's that time of year, and we don't want to go straight to Christmas and miss Halloween. Get into the 'spirit' of things. A simple Halloween/Javascript Game with an integrated editor (link).
