Welcome to Reality's End. This site is devoted to the many things that are my interests (screw whatever you like), the games I make from time to time, and some community writing efforts. Most things here are phantasy and scifi, so if that isn't your cup of tea, then you are at the wrong place, friend.

: Did you know I was working on a new game? Well, I am. I guess this is the first info on it, which ain't much of a teaser since an actual release of this thing is being expected (but isn't it always?).

Dev Log (Jan 15, 2011 24:20)Linux Sound (ALSA) and Java
: If you look around this great big Internets of ours, you can find endless stories of people complaining about the ill-suited combination of Java, Linux, and sound. I originally set out to fix just my applets, but I think I came up with a way to get ALSA to play nice with all Java I run -- and you can, too~!
Wow, was it a year ago when Bimblesnaff splintered Key of Ages
? For those of you unfamiliar with my attempt to create a canon Battling Dragons story, it suffered
the same problems a lot of larger, older stories do.
For those of you unfamiliar with writing splinters, it means the same story that has been written since March '06 has essentially become an entirely different tale, sharing only the very beginning with its predecessor. Anyone interested in writing should check it out. Not like you can mess it up any more than the original, and hey, if you do, there can always be a third splinter.
This was originally scheduled to be the summer-smash hit until the ubiquitous stuff happened. Oh, that wacky anniversary RE curse~!
This is still comin' out, tho', even if a li'l delayed. After all, if it is one thing that RE does time and time again, it's make games that'll ultimately be ignored~!

Allow me to geek-out, if you will. I expect that this sort of thing will happen a lot more often now. As I had previously mentioned, I am intending these little tidbits I discover to become Googlebait.
I recently came across an issue when trying to test out a local web page. Now, I run my own Apache server for testing most web functionality, but I wanted to deploy an embedded target that would not be running a server of any kind. The idea was for it to display HTML5 pages, so anything server-side was unnecessary. Thus, I wanted to use the file:/// schema to show local files as pages (That is, file:///absolute/path/to/file.html) instead of pointing to http://localhost and running an httpd.

Ah, now, back to business.
It has almost been a year since I posted an update on this site regularly. Sure, I meant to post this particular update at exactly one year (thus this being late and last week being filler and also late), but not being bound to an arbitrary and largely symbolic schedule is one of the reasons I gave up following an arbitrary and symbolic schedule. Or, y'know, all the reason.
But like I said in last week's update, I have been working on the site. What you are looking at right now in the fruit of that work. It might not look like much, but updated updates (with comments!) mean that there can be a lot more communication around here, and that is what has been sorely missing in recent years.
See, I have always held the stance of anti-blogging. I disliked social media before it even was labeled such. I just hate people who try to talk about themselves all the time. This site is supposed to be about what new fun distractions are being offered up to you -- not the weird, scary dude who coded them.
But now, I gots some talking I gotsta do.

No, you are not reading things wrong. It has almost been a whole year since I last posted an update, but if you have been paying attention to the last update I made, you would notice that I never stopped working on the site.
Recently, I have been working on a rather sweeping change to the site's infrastructure. Most noticeably, all comment pages have a much more approachable interface and human-readable URLs instead of mangled query garbage. (Less noticeable, hopefully, is anything I probably broke.) Link cleanliness is something I have really been pushing for, but I guess I'll have more on that for you soon in the coming days. For realsies.
- Thursday, the Ides of March
- Wellsir, I wanted to do something big for the Ides, but then I got distracted, and then I remembered that I already had an update waiting for nigh a month now, Personal Accounterbility Tagging and Tracking. This may be a much lesser update for visitors, but it sure has made me shape up in always trying to get at least something done every day. It generates some imagery for the main page, although it is technically customizable to slap on places like my dA.
