Oh, and I decided averaging groups-of-days on that graph was misleading. Why would I average them? That doesn’t make sense.
A game called Set, to which I was recently introduced, got me thinking about algorithms. A lot.
In particular, set finding algorithms.
I found in myself the desire to program a set player, but what use is a set player without a game to set? It is of little use, indeed, my friend.
I don’t know if I ever mentioned this, but a while back i put together a senorspine.net design for Shaun that I really like. It’s just some links to a few of his game profiles and his blog, so it’s not like an actual website, but it’s a good use of the domain name.
A man named Shaun E. Kiernan asks if I know of any programs purposed toward splitting PNG files. Barring image editors, I do not.
Saying no to people is not something I do well. I offer to make him one. Development time should be brief.
I do so. It is so.
I rebel against the common over-use of text fields. I do not worry about certain conditions. If an image cannot be evenly divided, it will try for pixel fractions. This is an obvious mistake, but the fault is theirs.
I implement tarring, for increased ease-of-use. I commandeer and massage code from Bradicon. It is done in under an hour.
He laments its interface, though it seems functional. He claims it suits his need.
I spend some more time on the user interface. This is as far as I see it going.
So you have these two shapes, right? One of them is the guy who can see, and the other a bitter enemy who blocks his line of sight.
The red blob is our protagonist, and the blue hexapod an enemy of his sight.
Guys, I lost and it wasn’t even close.

I can tell from the hurtful lack of emails and comments that this past week without update has been noticed by most of you.
I can explain. And this isn’t just one of those explanations meant to stall for time and an opportunity for escape. It is that, but also nothing more.
There were a lot of things to be done after coming back from Victoria this past weekend. Most interesting being a second game demo contest with Shaun Kiernan, to be judged by his girl-friend’s sister’s boy-friend, Richard.
