This blog is me talking about my stuff, what I do and from time to time, in order to improve the state of the internet and promote better content and google hits for other people, I will also post solutions to various other problems I’ve found.


Test markdown
20 February 2015

Here’s a code chunk with syntax highlighting: var foo = function(x) { return(x + 5); } foo(3) $ echo $EDITOR vim $ git checkout master Switched to branch 'master' Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/master'. $ git push Everything up-to-date $ echo 'All > done!' All done! You can write regular markdown here and Jekyll will automatically convert it to a nice webpage. I strongly encourage you to take 5 minutes to learn how to write in markdown - it’ll teach you how to transform regular text into bold/italics/headings/tables/etc.

Development stories
13 October 2013

It’s been a while since I posted, but I have been buried deep in rift and input development. Rift development is pretty much done and I have rift support. I have received my razer hydra and backed the stem system and I’m hoping I’ll receive my sixense stem system in July.

Thoughts on the controls
22 August 2013

I have started implementing the basic controls for both the keyboard and joysticks and to test everything out I added basic thrust and torque controls, and while this is really hard to control as each torque requires a counter torque from stopping to spinning I started thinking. The WebGL version of lander and I recall the original (I still can’t get it to play on my win7 system) let’s you enter the desired orientation and let a AI controls the torque thrusts.
