A new app, finally! Binal is a customizable desktop widget that displays the current system time as a grid of binary on/off indicators. Have a look.
Took me long enough but I finally go around to overhauling Lock State. This new version is completely rewritten, with a new interface and several new features. Have a look.
I finally started playing the ubiquitous Hearthstone. I have mostly been trying to get through the beginner's practice games, but I have played, and lost, one game against another human (apparently KillerKitten is tougher than they sound). I am enjoying the game, though it does have some design quirks. And even in this short span I have come to a few tentative conclusions:
1. I have no strategic talent at all.
2. This 'free to play' game actually has enough free content to make it worth playing.
3. Based on the options, interface and lack of keyboard shortcuts this game must have been designed from the start with touch screens in mind.
Even having read a strategy guide and watched dozens of hours of game play on YouTube I am still very bad at this game. I can only hope that in time, and with better cards, I will see some improvement. I do recommend the game though...
For the last couple of months every time I started my computer Skype would yell at me to update to the newest version. I would have been happy to oblige but my computer cannot run the newest version of Skype. Today I find that Microsoft, in all its money grubbing tyrant wisdom, has decided that unless I update they won't allow me to sign in. THEY WON"T ALLOW ME?! So now I cannot access Skype on my PC, ever again. All because Microsoft is evil.
I have re uploaded the Vigenere+ zip file. I discovered a small error in the documentation and decided to go ahead and correct it. Since the only change was a single word in one file I have opted not in increment the version number. Frankly it would be silly to do so.
I found a small glitch in how XOR+ handled new line characters, so I fixed it!
