Rassler

Rassler is a little 2D 1980s-inspired pro wrestling RPG that I’ve been developing in my spare time, using the Love2d engine. It’s free, I’ve been doing updates pretty regularly, and plan on continuing to do so. Currently only built for OS X, but Windows builds are coming soon.

Tybor, the Extra Future chat bot, Lives!

I spent last night making some needed fixes and changes to XFU’s resident learning chat bot, Tybor. His brain is now stored in a SQLite database, making him much faster and more portable. He even works on iOS and Android phones.

Sweatshop RETURNS

Sweatshop, the live art show I produce with E.G. Gauger, returns today at noon PST. Join us for chat, art, videos, and music. We love you.

Today’s Experiment: A-Ha Time

I have taken the classic A-Ha 80s jam “Take On Me” and slowed it down 50%. It starts out as an awesome dirge worthy of the Dawn Of The Dead soundtrack, and turns into a monster screaming about love in the most amusing possible manner. It is what I’m calling a Zombie Love Dirge. I’m […]

PNGPress

PNGPress, my simple image optimization app for Mac OS X is now available on the App Store. I hope you like it. PNGPress will accept any number of PNG images dropped onto its dock icon.

Extra Future 2010 Retrospective: Kreskin

I made a bunch of weird stuff in 2010, and I’m going to spend the new few days or weeks telling you about them with short posts about each one. Up first is Kreskin, a project it took about 12 hours to spit out and another 12 to make usable. Kreskin (Cat. No. EF-027) Kreskin […]

Mote, the Amazon S3 Music Player

Mote began as a 6-hour project and slowly changed into a 12-hour one. It takes the contents of any Amazon S3 bucket, checks for audio files and lets you play them like an album. It defaults to using HTML5’s audio tag, and falls back to Flash if your browser does not support HTML5. Mote is […]

Station Identification 2.0

Version 2 of my anti-piracy feed identification plugin, Station Identification is available for auto-updating or downloading from the WordPress plugins site.

la petite url 2.0

The long wait is over, and la petite url version 2.0 is out the door. WordPress users with auto-update can update at-will, and users who haven’t installed it yet (what’s wrong with you?) can get it here. Major changes include: An awesome new options panel, much faster redirects, removing of the old registration for the […]

Minimalist Citizen Kane Poster

Created by yours truly (view) in about 40 minutes, using sketchy clipart from here. It is not as… minimal as the others, but I think it captures the film pretty well. It may work just as well with only the rose, or only the title. The snow says a lot. I think it would look […]

Introducing FRMT.me

FRMT.me is an online CSS formatter using the Extra Future house style rules, which I’ve yet to codify here but will soon. It is one of my 6-hour projects, and as such is considered a sibling to Megaman II’s Intro in HTML, CSS, and jQuery. House style on the name is to print the domain […]

Megaman II’s Intro Animation In HTML

Created by yours truly. No Flash, just CSS, HTML5, and jQuery. The animation is very not smooth in Firefox, but works great in Safari and Chrome. You can check it out here. Using the scrollbar to bring the view upward was a stylistic choice, it could’ve just as (if not more) easily done in a […]

Using la petite url With A Custom Short(er) Domain Name

Since I introduced the ability to us a different domain for your shortened URLs in la petite url 1.5, I’ve had several email inquiries about how to set it up. With that in mind, I’ve put together the following tutorial, which I hope will help those of you who need a push in the right […]

Kickstarter

Kickstarter is an attempt at modern, crowd-sourced fundraising. Post a project or idea with a set timeframe, and people can pledge cash. If your fundraising goal gets reached, you get the money. If it doesn’t, then everyone gets a refund. Check out the introduction video. I could really see using this in the future.

Did The Cubs Win Today?

My single-serving site, didthecubswintoday.com, is covering the Chicago Cubs 2009 season with all-new guts. Game results are not easily tweetable, and navigation has been much improved.
