Replacing the Internal Battery with a AAA Holder

I just actually did a little hack n' slash where I replaced the internal DC battery with a AAA battery holder. You can check out photos here (please ignore the sloppy soldering). The issue (as maybe you can see from the photos) is that I used NiMH rechargeables where the original DC battery was mang...

Probably one of my favorite modern prog rock songs from one of my favorite modern prog rock albums.

Re: So whats new with you?

I've been working for a software company the past (almost) seven years that doesn't make games of any kind. It's kind of maddening. I'm some kind of manager now and need to share inspirational anecdotes with the people who report to me whenever possible. I also have been recording music and playing ...

Carbon Leaf. I've been a fan since early 2003 and stuck around from their independent days through their "adult contemporary" years on a label. I got to see them at the Pittsburgh Irish Festival again this past Saturday and meet them afterwards. It's cool to meet people who you've been listening to ...

Yeah, I'm currently using GoDaddy.

Out of curiosity, how do you handle migrating from one registrar to another without a lapse in service?

Re: Kickstarter- New Game by Former-S&F Artist Andrew Bado

After going through the Demo I would've loved to have it on Dreamcast, it seems like a fun project. It's a cool idea, but since everything has been done in GameMaker, I feel like it would basically take a rewrite to get it to that point. I know Andrew was a huge supporter (as we all are/were) of th...

Re: Wordpress Question

Wordpress.com offers an alternative, pay them 13$ a year and they will essentially move your blog to your domain name. Any downsides in that option? How many entries do you currently have? I would do the legwork and just manually move everything over to my own database or something. A reoccurring c...

Oh yeah! This DID end up being funded - about 2k over.

Re: Chrome Help

Yeah, I have the AVG antivirus client installed, but I always declined to install "safe search" when an application prompts me. The worst trend over the past ten years with downloads are the tacked-on "sponsored" programs that you get asked to install alongside the one you actually want. Ugh. - Steve

Re: Git or Svn?

I use SVN at the moment. I know a lot of people prefer Git.

I have only ever used SVN for work, so that's what I'm used to...

You know if you could give me a couple of review links and a few screen shots. I could make a Wikipedia page for it. As I have already made pages for GSP, RSG, NGDT and almost all of their game pages. That'd be really sweet, man. I actually need to see what reviews are still live and which are dead...

Re: Updated S&F Software Site

Well, I manually went through all of the old records and stuff in the internet archive's wayback machine today and tried to get a definitive data set of all the old S&F Software news posts. Everything is stored in a database now and you can navigate all the way to the silly posts from 2000. :o Serio...
