Tuesday, May 30th, 2006

I’d never have guessed the Bank of England was so big. Just shows what you can hide underground if you dig a big enough hole. See: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/4987016.stm

V5I: Vue Dynamics 0.3 – Now with Added Particles

Monday, May 29th, 2006

I’ve just uploaded the latest version of VueDynamics with added particle emitting capabilities. Particles can be subjected to the same forces as objects could in previous versions.

Almost forgot to post

Sunday, May 28th, 2006

Almost midnight and I’ve been so busy I almost forgot to post. Fingers crossed I’ll have a new version of VueDynamics to release tommorrow with basic particle support. The code is almost finished, just needs checking, documentation and tidying up a bit. Other than that a quiet day of household chores, a little Civ 4 […]

Connection Woes

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2006

I couldn’t get a connection to the Internet tonight. If someone had told me in 1989 that two hours without an Internet connection would ruin an evening I’d have laughed at them. Back in 1989 I’d seen a variety of blocky, slow, precursors to the WWW and none of them was going to set the […]
