Current Projects

I haven't been all lazy during the past weeks. Mikey and I are working on a couple of projects while we're waiting to get a job.

We are coding a webgame. It's a java puzzle game that we hope will turn out to be a fun little game. You will be able to blow things up and splatter paint everywhere. Now if that doesn't sound promising :)

The other thing we're doing is creating a website for a community project we intend to start. It will be a site where people can post articles about all kinds of geek wisdom, i. e. computer/technology related topics. For example Mikey intends to write an article about converting your CD collection into MP3s (i.e. which tools to use, how to encode the files, etc.). We also thought about articles about digital photography, problems you have to deal with as a webdesigner (e.g. making your site work with all browsers) or how to code a java webgame :) I've also been asked many times how I used MovableType to make my photo gallery so I will write about that. I'll also explain how the playlist in the sidebar works and post the script for it.

We got the idea for the site when we talked about how we really should write down solutions to computer related problems we had. There are some things that I keep looking up because I don't use them often enough to remember them the next time I need them. Also people would ask us how we do certain things (like how we rip our CDs). And then we thought there must be more people out there who want to know these things. We had to do a lot of research on the web to learn all the facts. But wouldn't it be cool if there was a single place where you can find all kinds of hints and references for further reading to certain topics?

So now we want to start this site and will send a "call for papers" to all our friends in hopes they have something to contribute as well. We hope this will grow into this big thing where everybody can write about anything they want other people to know, be it tips on how to custom-build your own computer, or hints about how to earn money fast in EverQuest. Anything goes.

Ooh, I’d love to answer questions and give advice to new The Sims players! You know, if you need that sort of thing. ; )

Heh :) Yeah, that would be great. The site is almost finished so write away and yours will be one of the first articles there!

Maybe that would be a good place to write about How To Live a Random Life.

Yes. It would :)

Then we could do a special article together on making your Sims live a random life!
