So I was browsing around Kickstarter a couple days ago just to see what kind of projects were popping up and happen to come across this brand new IDE that was funded last year. It’s name is Light Table and looks to be a very promising IDE for minimalist developers. The look and feel reminds me an awful lot of Sublime Text 2 but I think Light Table will be far superior once it progresses. Right now (version 0.3.9) there’s relatively minimal functionality but it works. Currently there’s only runtime support for Clojure but supposedly in v 0.4.0, Chris Ganger is adding support for Python, which I’m looking forward to since it’s been my go-to language recently.
If you want to find out more information head over to Light Table’s Kickstarter page, their website, or the Google group.
Man, I’m gonna miss this internet connection when I graduate. No way am I going to see this kind of speed in a residential area. Or at least not without paying the cost of a second mortgage for it. Come on Google ISP! Come over to the Tri-State area and give us some of that glorious gigabit speed.
Good ole April first. Here’s a list and short description of some of the April Fool’s jokes that I came across while internetting today.

Finally caught up with one of the anime from the spring season! For those of you who haven’t seen Magi at all, I would recommend you watch the first couple episodes and see if it piques your interest. The anime borrows a lot of the names from the 1001 Nights stories (Sinbad, Ali Baba, Aladdin, etc.). Though, it’s been a long while since I read the original stories so I don’t know how close the anime characters are to the originals nor do I know if the anime plot follows the 1001 Nights stories.
Either way, it’s anime to pick up for action, adventure, and fantasy. The least episode just aired in Japan and should have fan translations out soon (if not already)! For those of you who’ve seen episode 24 but not 25…
Another anime PV just released, there’s no air date for this yet but it seems intriguing. The production for this anime was approved back in January, so I’m not expecting anything until Winter probably.

Finally had a chance to play some Dwarves vs Zombies (DvZ) by Unforgotten Realms (URealms). I’ve been trying to play for the past two weeks but the signup and random selection process is tough. You first have to fill out a sign up sheet that includes a question that you must get right. The question is typically either DvZ trivia or is based on previous matches that night. If you get the question wrong, you have to sit out that match and wait for the next round. On average, there’s about 600~700 people each round that get the question correct and out of those who get it correct there are only 70 or so that actually make it. Read More →
So apparently Minecon 2013 is going to be held in the USA. I’m hoping it’ll be on the east coast this time (it was held in Las Vegas the first year and Paris last year) so that I might be able to afford to go. That being said, I’m hoping it’ll be in the northeast so that it’ll be even easier for me to go! Baltimore? DC? NYC? Boston?

!!!POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT!!!
If you haven’t seen the anime, or have not finished watching it yet, then I recommend you do that first before seeing the PV for the movie. The movie is a continuation of the TV series and so it expects you to have seen that first. Albeit, the movie PV isn’t too spoiler-y…
Either way, I can’t wait to see this. Really curious as to how they continue the storyline.
Hello again world! I decided to restart the blog to keep a semi-record of stuff that I’m up to so I can look back on things and see what all I’ve done. Since I’m nearing the end of university now, it’s interesting trying to remember the things that I’ve done and when I did them.
I’ll be working on the layout throughout the next couple days to fancy things up and get it looking decent again but I should also be making a couple of posts with stuff I’m up to as well.
