Weblog ECWolf ECWolf Wiki

Blzut3 has officially lost it 2010-01-23 20:36:50

I mean, I bought a Mac Mini.

After spending a day and a half with it I have to say I'm not much more impressed with Mac OS X over Mac OS 8. The main thing that bothers me is the lack of options for the mouse. On the Mac moving the mouse slowly makes the cursor move less than quickly moving the same physical distance. There does not appear to be a way to turn this off.

I'm also not enjoying the fact that you have to close the applications even after closing the final window. Mac OS 8 was the same way and it was a bit more annoying there since it would always cause be to run out of memory.

On a more positive note I do have Doomseeker, ECWolf, and ZDoom all running on the Mac, and I suspect Skulltag will be coming to the Mac soon enough.

Site design changed! 2009-12-18 22:46:52

Or rather I changed the code backing the site. I removed the white border since it allowed me to increase the width of the page which I feel is needed if I want to expand the contents of the site. The tab at the top may seem unneeded now, but I plan to add a wiki for ECWolf and thus will result in more tabs.

I've made a few other minor design changes such as removing the redundant links at the bottom of the page. Some of the content from the site has been removed, but I'm working to restore most of it.

Skulltag 0.98a Released 2009-10-26 19:15:06

Skulltag 0.98a has been released along side Doomseeker 0.4.1b.

The only thing I want to say is Skulltag now has full 64-bit Linux support. So go to the announcement to learn more.

BitOwl Application Suit 2 2009-10-01 22:59:27

BitOwl Application Suit is now back into active development. This is made possible by the fact that my school wanted me to produce a website for their school newspaper. So I now have 50+ minutes per day where I'm forced to work on my software. What fun.

The news publishing aspect of it of course is the main focus as it was back in the BitOwl News days. Of course BitOwl Application Suit 2 will be much more suited towards larger news site with MySQL support instead of forcing the highly memory intensive flat file database.

I also finally got a public subversion software for my projects. I would like to thank MiX-MaN of for giving me the opportunity to help with his server in exchange for the subversion repositories. This not only makes my life easier, but means I'll be shutting down my computer (saving money) and it successfully ties Skulltag together with school.

I suspect I'll have something else to announce in late October with Skulltag getting ready for the release of 98a. I'm personally excited for this release since I'll be able to more or less dump 32-bit software entirely.
