Stickly

Today I made Stickly, it’s a fun little game in my opinion. Check out the new Creations page, it has the link to Stickly in it.

Here’s a screenshot:

That’s the first time I’ve ever used an image in a blog. Anyways, Stickly has a cool interface. It’s awesome. It looks like this:

Sweet isn’t it? Anyways, the game is a little aracade one with tiny graphics. You have to collect the coins and dodge bullets. You can roll, bounce, jump, and duck to avoid them. It’s addicting. I hope you enjoy the game, it’s well polished even though it took only a few hours to make. Check out the Creations page and you should be able to find a download. A new idea of mine is to create a gadget creation program that uses the same sort of interface as Stickly. Stay tuned on that one folks.

Google Goes Psychic

Wow, that’s what my reaction was. I had been wondering just a few moments ago after posting that blog if there was a Google Blog Search, and it turns out one was revealed today. It isn’t even on the Google Labs page yet. Turns out Google can make products with a snap of the fingers and make what I want. Not really, but I hadn’t noticed the other blogs talking about this. I’m also happy to find out that I’m on it. That’s plenty cool with me. I searched Google Blog Search and found this, then noticed it wasn’t on labs. Thinking no one else had found it I was excited, but found out that I’d had been beat to the punch by quite a few people. I must not have gotten, or have not read

DailyLit

This is cool, a chance to read my classic literature little bits at a time!  Neat.  I will have to get some of my Arthur Conan Doyle dosage, and add a feature like this to my secret project.  Anyways here’s the link: DailyLit.

Building a WYSIWYG Editor in HTML

Two posts in one day, wow. I had to show you guys this article. I always thought building a rich textbox would be hard and I’d heard of WYSIWYG editors, but never knew what they were. I linked the two via the WordPress help button which I clicked for no apparent reason. Then I searched Google on how to build a WYSIWYG editor in the HTML/Javascript combo (no I didn’t use those exact words). What I found was this:

P.S.: WordPress keeps deleting most this blog when I am trying to save it. Annoying. Glad I have copy and paste on. If you see this it means I got it working.

P. S.S: I had to create a new entry and re-blog this.

P. S.S.S: Whoa, it’s September 28th (2006) and I realizedthe link wasn’t there as a result of it somehow being screwed up (I thought I had inserted it).  Well, I’ve edited it in now.  If you have come across this article then enjoy.

Artificial Heart Approved By FDA

I was looking at my feeds, when I got something new.  I recieved it from my Discovery News feed.  I’m going to be expressing my views a little, but you can read the full article here.  Anyways, I got this link from my Discovery News feed, which I already mentioned.  I don’t get a ton of feeds from them, and I don’t read too many, but this one sparked my interest.  I suggest you read it, then if you have here are my views.  It’s about an artificial heart device called AbioCor created by Abiomed Inc.  I think this is a great idea, considering that the device is going to give patients who would die in less than a month, a longer lifespan.  One man lived up to seventeen months, other than the one month.  My only two concerns are that some insurance plans might not be able to cover it so some people might not be able to afford it.  My other concern is that the strokes will occur too often.  The third factor that some people are interpreting as a product risk is the number of deaths while inserting the heart.  I don’t take these as a fault of the product, because heart surgeries are risky enough as it is.  I am glad that some people will be able to have a longer lifespan, even if it only is a few months (every second in life counts).  My hope is that this product will not only be successfull, but improve in the years to come.  This is a great strive forward in the health industry.  Today I have a closing message for you:

“Life is very short and there’s no time…”-We Can Work It Out, The Beatles.

Thank you for listening.   Remember that life can take turns all too quickly and you need to enjoy the good times while they last.

Cheers,

Read or Download Books in Google Books

Want to read or download books? I recommend Project Gutenberg which has been around for a while and has about 19,000 free ebooks on its site. It also has audio books, and some motion pictures. Well, Google Books is getting in on the game by allowing people to download full books. To do so click the Full view books radio button, enter your search keywords, and click Search Books to find a book. You can download the books as PDF’s (Download PDF Reader), or view them in your browser. My only complaint is that they store all the scanned books pages as images instead of converting them to text using Optical Character Recognition (OCR), meaning bigger loading times and file sizes. Anyways I was thinking about creating my own Web 2.0 site that allowed uploading books, viewing them in a nice page-by-page format like Google, and allowing downloads in multiple formats. That would be cool. Anyways my scripts are finally getting recognized, but you can’t download them now because my host 64digits seems to be down and I don’t feel like uploading a copy right now. Sorry. They should be back up soon. That’s all folks! I categorized this as link, because there are a lot of links!

SubOS News Blog

I’m learning a little bit more about assembler and trying to learn some more each day. I want to assembler the resouces and then learn how to make my own operating system. I also started a SubOS News site, if you don’t know waht a SubOS is, a SubOS is an application that is also commonly called a “GUI'”, “Fake OS”, or “Shell”. I like them, some people don’t. I guess it just depends. The site can be found here. It’s going to be worked on soon, don’t worry!

Cheers,
