taking Care of Business…

Over the weekend I got in contact with someone who had used my OBJ -> SMD converter and had found a bug. The issue was pretty easy to fix, so I took some time to fix it. It was pretty straight forward, and has been attached, below.

Gneu Manager

The last week of development of our project manager has been slow. Being tied up in other things has definitely impacted my progress, but for the most part, I’ve just been unmotivated. Today we talk about why that has changed.

Letter to the HL2 Mod Community

I began modding Source in January of 2005.

Our habits, search phrases, and personal information (I’m not talking credit cards…) are all subject to the developer’s needs and intelligence; if they choose to keep track of who I am and what I like on their site it will be very beneficial to them. This is the first in a possible series of more technical journeys into Swallowbush, and PHP in general. I plan to open up the door to show you how and why things are tracked, and what benefit you can take from that. Continue reading “Chronicles of Swallowbush – An exercise in user tracking”
