I have found a solution to this issue that doesn’t seem to be listed on the official support page.  I sent them a form thingy to add it, but regardless I think I will post it here too in order to get it spidered by Google. First, check out that page and make sure you’ve […]

Firefox breaks my TF2 thing!

August 1st, 2009 · 9 Comments · Games, Programming, Website

Well not really, I think it just was a failure to test it thoroughly on my part, but it’s still odd.  Apparently, in Firefox, a checkbox’s .value property is always “on” even if it isn’t really “on” so all the pictures were coming out with critical backgrounds.  Using “.checked” solved that problem.

June 8th, 2008 · 29 Comments · Games

I have found that the latest movie has more than a passing resemblance to a classic PC game which unfortunately is a bit hard to get working on modern PCs. Somehow it magically started working again on my PC (not sure what I did) so I’ve been playing through it again. While talking on IRC […]

Guardian of Paradise

May 4th, 2007 · 418 Comments · Games

I will have my Wii on Friday, when I go home for spring break! 🙂 However my TV tuner is not working satisfactory on Vista.  I will have to boot into XP and Ubuntu to see if it’s limited to there… I should probably just get a new one or some sort of Composite->VGA adapter […]
