Go play Dubloons!

John Laird's Senior Computer Game Design class is required to create a final game at the end of their semesters work, he was kind enough to show me some of the winners this morning. They can be found here: 494 Showcase Games. The ones you want are Dubloons, a quickie ship attacks ship game. You basically order your dudes to fight, pump or defend. It's great stuff. Strife is a sort of star-controlesque inspired tank game.

A note to our friends in the spam trade...and a note about Floss Weekly 3

I don't speak:


And a variety of other languages.

What also baffles me is why, pray tell, do they think I'll buy their pump and dump otc stocks?

Sigh. 2:22am and spam as far as the eye can see.

More later...car picking me up in an hour, heading to Michigan. Floss weekly will be a little late this week, going to interview some pals down there, re-enact a little Geeks in Space or something :-)

Second(ish) PodCast recorded.

The second Floss Weekly should be up on Twit.tv and iTunes on Friday. Check it out. For this show, I brought along Ben Goodger. Next week I want to have Jeremy Allison as my guest. (He reads the blog :-), Hi Jeremy. )

Something like 14,000 people listened (or downloaded, anyhow) to the debut show and Apple chose it as a New and Notable technology podcast, which was really neat. Thanks Apple! Anyhow, go ahead and subscribe to the podcast and be sure to listen.

April Fool

So I love all the April foolishness, but something caught my eye, and so I went back to last year and double checked out my alma mater, I think that there are less people getting modded up to 5 on April 1st. I could postulate as to why, but that would be boring, and, you know, OMG PONIES!!!! But it was interesting to me. And, since, you know, Egofood is about -my- ego....I posted about it. And thus, the needs of my narcissism are served.
