It came to my attention that no one published a user defined language mode for Notepad++ that would allow you to view BB code tags in the editor relatively comfortably, so I decided to correct that omission by publishing mine.

This is a small note that I have made
a quick Haxe variant of the first part of my

You can see an interactive Haxe-JS demo above,

I was randomly asked whether I was going to write a summary-of-the-year post or anything, and I thought "sure, why not", and proceeded to spend a day doing that.
FontForge comes with two scripting systems
- largely-regular Python and

My online multiplayer mod for Caveblazers was released last week!
You can download it via Steam

Sometimes people ask me what programming languages I know / started with / have worked with in past,
so this is a small post about that that I could link later.
Finally getting to the important features
As you might have noticed, things are suddenly slightly different - the blog's design suddenly looks a little less 2012, big posts get a "table of contents" widget, and there's a dark theme switch!
In this post I take a look back on how my website originally came to life and how it changed over time. Continue reading

So it has come to this - Nuclear Throne update 99 releases today! (also see AMA on subreddit)
For me it's even slightly more remarkable, as I did additional programming for this update.
This blog post outlines my involvement, changes, and answers some common questions.
