Starting new.

Not really giving up as much as shifting focus; I'm taking down my server that hosts twobitarcade, MOCB, squshy and skin-boats. Dedicated hosting costs are the main reason, but I'm going to try to focus on android games exclusively in the near future and will be updating this site to reflect that. The links in the posts below will soon go bad and there will be lots of changes here.

SOF - Skin on Frame boatbuilding.

Last summer the kids and I built a boat. It was so much fun and paddled so well that we've decided to make a few more. It was so much fun in fact that I'm sharing the whole expierience on a new website all about skin boats. I'm hoping that it will take off and inspire lots more people to do the same. Skin on frame boats are lighweight, inexpensive and easy to build. There are plans for canoes, kayaks, rowboats, sailboats and more. On the site there will be lots of tips and instructions soon, and there's already a skin on frame forum in place.

Take a look and see if this is something you might like to do, I promise you won't regret it.



Launched a new recipe website.

I've been working on a new website for organizing recipes in my spare time. It's up at

I've put up a bunch of recipes including my Easy Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken Stir Fry and my favorite soup recipe Chicken Tortilla Soup. Take a look and add some of your own recipes if you like.

Number four of the top ten reasons real programers hate VB.

From Microsoft Visual Basic Help
IsNull Function
Returns a Boolean value that indicates whether an expression contains no valid data (Null).
Important: Use the IsNull function to determine whether an expression contains a Null value. Expressions that you might expect to evaluate to True under some circumstances, such as If Var = Null and If Var < > Null, are always False. This is because any expression containing a Null is itself Null and, therefore, False.

Action Script Asteroids.

One goal for this summer is to get good at flash. In the spirit of learning by doing I hacked out an asteroids clone.
One long night of coding got it started. Second day added saucers and cleaned it up a bit. Tomorrow add sound!
Flash is too cool.

I've always wanted to do a game something like "Pitfall!" or "Rick Dangerous". Towards that I set up a spring model jungle vine. The next step is to get a character to swing from it.

My Raytracer! Images from my CS 535 final project.

I still don't believe I actually got this thing to work. :)

So far it supports sphere, plane and cylinder objects with unlimited (within reason) colored lights, antiailiasing and soft shadows.
