If the 3D Mario games were named after the 2D games from which they took mechanics:
Super Mario 64 would be Super Mario 3D World
Super Mario 3D Land would be Super Mario 3D Bros.
Super Mario 3D World would be Super Mario 3D Bros. 2, a.k.a. Doki Doki 3D Panic

It is always nice when a professor tells you he just downloaded the software he is using to teach “the other day”¡

+ASUS finally got back to me about my laptop.  Apparently there is a chance they will replace the part of the casing they damaged, which is great and all, but ignores the bigger issue of me having sent them a laptop that booted and them sending back one that does not.

Introduction

I am a 21-year-old game and software designer and developer.

I enjoy programming, level design, and user interface/user experience design, and I would like to think I am quite good at those things—I have been teaching game and software design and development since high school.  I also enjoy drawing, 3D modeling, 2D and 3D animation, acting, and singing.  I am not as good at those things, but I hope to get better in time.  I also enjoy promoting wave, spinning poi, cosplaying, geeking out over sci-fi, and writing lyrics (usually parodies of existing songs) from time to time.  And normal things, such as playing video games and reading.

If you are interested in some of the things I make, you can check out my apps, wave gadgets (for Google Wave, Shared SpacesApache Wave, and similar systems), Portal maps, and other tech shenanigans.

Bragging rights
I am a sysadmin, I can write a web app on a bus ride, and I spin fire poi.

I think they changed the recipe for the crust, and I do not think the new one is as good. The creative pizza types, however, are as great as ever.
