Space Station 13 and VLC – Together At Last

A while ago, I wrote a simple media distribution system for use in Space Station 13, based on a very old and broken system by D2K5, designed to play remote media for all players in an area.  The idea was to have player-interactable jukeboxes and radio stations.  Most popular SS13 servers now use this system, and players have become familiar with muzak floating through the hallways while breaking open their friends’ heads with toolboxes. – MORE

Whistle While You (Look For) Work

At the moment, my life is in a weird limbo.

The suddenness of getting hired in the middle of my last year of college had thrown a lot of things into whack, and it took me several months to wind down after getting put back on the market.  I still wake up in cold sweats, having experienced a plethora of weird dreams involving a collision of interests between college and work (such as a major release and a final exam on the same day).  – MORE

More Blog Work

I’m going to be working on the blog over the next few days, mostly working on trying to make my resume more prevalent and making the site itself less funky looking. The theme’s great overall, but it has some derpiness, mostly with the front page layout and how thumbnails are handled.

Also, let me know if you’d like to see something on the site.  – MORE

HHVM on Lighttpd – Walk in the Park

HHVM on Lighttpd – Walk in the Park

Just switched this server (dedi.nexisonline.net) to HHVM, a recode of PHP by Facebook. The process went smoother than expected, although I switched the ChanMan/testing server to HHVM a while ago, and therefore had some prior experience.

Unfortunately, HHVM has rather piss-poor documentation on how to get it running on Lighttpd, which is fairly odd, considering they have docs for Apache and nginx. – MORE

Themin’, Schemin’.

Eyesight is still recovering from my migraine cluster, but managed to get some banners and theming done for this.  I didn’t want to do anything too fancy, but this green is killing my eyes, so I might end up screwing around in the CSS.

Going to try and get some parser work done tomorrow for OpenBYOND.  Shouldn’t be too difficult, as the older C++ project still has some Flex rules I can cannibalize.  – MORE

Oh god a blog

I realize I haven’t had a portfolio for a long time.  I’ve been meaning to get to it, but with all of my other projects going on, on top of some particularly hellish ocular migraines, my release has kind of been put on hold.

So, without further adieu, my partial portfolio is now live.  I hope to have some decent pictures up soon, and a better design once I feel artsy.  – MORE
