Today we said goodbye to Twitter as Elon Musk turns it into his own private microblog.

Young Jedi Adventures: Encounter at Midjourney Station May 28, 2023 So, I’ve been watching Young Jedi Adventures as Jedi Survivor has left me craving more details about the High Republic era. Even though I’m outside the target audience I’m really loving the characters and the look and feel of the setting. Unfortunately, the show still leaves you wanting more in terms of art. So I thought it’d be a great chance to experiment with Midjourney. If you haven’t yet heard of it, Midjourney is a generative artificial intelligence program. ...
Fixing the Bubble Shooter experience on mobile Dec 14, 2022 There’s a serious problem in a very niche game genre on Google Play. Every bubble shooter on the store is seemingly designed to take your money and steal your data. And since all of them are based on the hit game Puzzle Bobble by Taito, launched all the way back in 1994, it just seems wrong. So I’ve recently launched my brand new game Just Bubbles, but before we at Frostcube launched Just Bubbles, I wanted to make sure that it stood apart from the marketplace. ...
Now on Mastodon Nov 1, 2022 If you have managed to avoid the news eruption about Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter and the flow of discussion about what that means for the future of Twitter: Trending articles today on The Verge I think Elon has done some great things over the years, however I find the idea of Twitter being a private company very concerning. I’ve also realised that Twitter isn’t the same platform I joined in 2009. ...
Cookie - Homepod Mini of Terror May 4, 2022 I recently picked up a Homepod Mini so that I could compare it against Alexa and Google Home speakers. I had thought that this would be a pretty straight forward endeavour, but I was wrong. The Homepod decided to utilize 100% of my bandwidth for the first two days and use over 200GB+ of data, which is an impressive effort as it only has 64GB of memory. I was very confused by the whole thing and even after solving it I am not sure I fully understand how this issue occurs. ...
Cookie - Reset GameMaker 2 DPI Settings Apr 18, 2022 GameMaker 2 has improved robustness of the UI significantly over GameMaker 1. However, I still ran into some issues today with the UI crashing after changing the DPI settings. It’s annoying as you’re unable to change the setting back as the UI crashes when you open it. If you’ve run into the same issue, don’t fear, it’s pretty simple to fix. Start by heading to the shared settings folder, on Windows that is: ...
Just Bubbles Development Apr 13, 2022

Just Bubbles

I’ve been flying a lot again lately and have realised how few choices there are when you want to play a game offline, with no ads and focused gameplay. I started the ‘Just’ series of games a few years ago when I was disappointed with how I couldn’t just play the game I wanted on my phone.

Raspberry Pi Pico Clock Apr 12, 2022

Pico Clock

I was reminded about a very cool clock that sits on my desk after a kind Tweet from Matt Trentini. It’s been working so well that I almost forgot I built it.

Level 19 - Homeworld Remastered Feb 26, 2015

Homeworld

I have not been excited for a video game release for quite some time, but when this was announced I was excited.

When I played the original Homeworld in 1999 I loved it, even though I could never get past the 6th mission at the time, it’s a game that’s stuck with me since.

Unicolour Sep 6, 2014 With the shut down of Twitpic I decided it was time to upload my GIFs somewhere else, all one of them. Unfortunately Twitter doesn’t allow GIFs over 3MB, so I had to upload it to YouTube instead, but better than it being lost forever.
