Some teaser screenshots of a turn-based Cardboard game I'm working on, internally titled "Cardboard Rogue". Been having a lot of fun experimenting with gaze-based interfaces.

(Alpha screenshots, not final art, yadda yadda)

It's about time Sourceforge died a quiet death and faded into obscurity.
 
It appears that +SourceForge took over the control of the 'GIMP for Windows' account and is now distributing an ads-enabled installer of GIMP. They also locked out original owner of the account, Jernej Simončič, who has been building the Windows versions of GIMP for our project for years.

So far they haven't replied to provide explanations. Therefore, we remind you again that GIMP only provides builds for WIndows via its official Downloads page.
Source for version 2.8 (Stable). GIMP releases available from gimp.org and its mirrors contain the source code and have to be compiled in order to be installed on your system. For instructions, how to build GIMP from source code, please see this page.

It is worth noting that sourceforge and Slashdot were acquired a while back by dice holdings inc (dhi) who have convinced themselves that they can make huge piles of money off of them.

Hurrah ! A dark theme option, baked into the OS !

(Not that it actually effects me, as a Cyanogenmod user I've had a feature similar this for a while - but better theme support in Android will be better for everyone and probably make the future Cyanogen theming options more flexible)

There's even an "automatic" option that changes with the time.

Ha! I was about 11 when I got interested in programming. 12 when I got my first computer. Got my first programming lesson when I got accepted in the University CS department at the age of 19.

I wonder how good I would be if I had received any programming lessons during those 7 years I spent learning things all by my own (and without the Internet).

Listening to: https://adelynrose.bandcamp.com/album/ordinary-fantasy

Current track "Even" has the trappings of a great pop song, fresh but also like I've heard it before somewhere and can't quite put my finger on it.

Recently, Dinofarm Games' Blake Reynolds wrote a blog post in which he and his studio renounced pixel art. I'm here, essentially, to not only further the discussion of what pixel art can be within the medium of video games, but also to accuse Reynolds and co. of picking up their toys and going ...

Yeah, I guess it's a matter of "dueling" click-bait titles. I mean, it's not the worst click-baiting out there, by any means, but they did understandably bend the titles a bit in the click-bait direction.

Introduction
I make video games, web apps, and enjoy figuring out how molecular machines work.

When it comes to Google+, I'm all about managing signal-to-noise. 
  • If you have a specific interest, check out my Collections ! Generally I target posts to these so people can follow me and only see the stuff that interests them.
  • I have a bunch of circles relating to my interests - a few examples are Game Development, Unity 3D, Science (online), Android, Python and local circles like Australia and Melbourne. I also have a Random weird-stuff catch-all circle :)
  • I only post something publicly outside a Collection if I feel like it has general interest, or if it's (infrequent) shameless self promotion.
  • If you follow me, I'll briefly check your profile. If the posts or profile information fit one of my interest circles, I'll follow you back. If you are a spammer, redneck racist or politico-religious wingnut I'll block you and report your account if appropriate.
Phew !

A pleasant restaurant dining area and slightly fancier pizzas than the average take away joint. Amazingly cheap for the quality & quantity provided. They do an interesting Beef and Mustard pizza which is decent.

Decent pizza, and competitively priced. I particularly like one of the more unique new additions to the menu - the Paneer and Chilli pizza.

Update: No longer at this location (But it WAS good, just a little pricey).

This is my favorite Malaysian place in the south eastern suburbs. Staff are friendly, prices are reasonable and the food is great. In particular - try the Bu bu Cha cha and the Ice Kachang ... delicious !

Forget KFC ... this is the fried chicken you have been looking for ... it's so so good. Great spicy option if you are into that too. Their house beer is decent too, for the price.
