Serious and Organised Art

Saturday, February 17th, 2007

I was thinking about the artwork for Serious and Organised tonight. Cars play a pretty big part in a lot of crime shows so I knew I was going to need some suitable models. Fortunately a thread on Renderosity reminded me of Design Modélisation Image that has some very nice free models of vehicles. The […]

Serious and Organised not Forgotten

Friday, February 16th, 2007

Did some work on polishing the system for Serious and Organised tonight. The basic game is now there it’s just a case of deciding what extra rules and other bits and pieces it needs. Then I can stat up the characters in the background up and the core game will be done.

Thursday, February 15th, 2007

Watched last nights Life on Mars last night. Since I know someone who reads this regularly hasn’t watched it yet I’ll avoid any spoilers. The story had me worried about half way through that they’d lost the plot. They were playing up the whole he’s from the future thing a bit too much for me. […]

I’m not a believer in conspiracy theories tending towards the cock up theory of history. However I do think conspiracies can make for interesting […]

My First Ajax Page

I’ve been looking at the open source xajax project for php for a couple of days. It’s a pretty straight forward way to add ajax to a PHP site without needing to know a lot of javascript. I’ve used it to enhance the front page of the meme machine tonight. Not the most complex of […]
