Nullary Sources

I recently started doing yet another thing which will cause me never to update this blog. Nullary Sources is a Tumblr blog I write with cool dude Colin Barrett. We’ve talked about starting something like it for a while, but much to our surprise, it finally happened. It’s been active for a little more than […]

Unique Moves

I’ve been knocking a game idea around in my head for a little while: a maze game where you can move any number of squares in a straight line, but once you move by a specific number of squares, you can’t move by that exact number again. I thought it was a pretty interesting idea, […]

Guide

There’s this one guy on the internet named Peter Hosey who recently started a blog feature called “Ship-It Saturday,” where he’s posting projects that are basically done save for maybe one or two niggling things, in the interest of just getting them done I mean seriously come on. I’ve been thinking about it since he […]

VGM composers works lists

Ages ago, for the VG Frequency blog, I wrote a series of posts spotlighting some lesser known composers of video game music whose works I greatly enjoy. Each of these posts contained a list of the games they’d composed music for, just as a flat text file. Since writing those posts, I’ve become really unhappy […]

small update

This blog now has a profile page. For the first time since its registration three years ago, quiteajolt.com has content. Also, Interjacent Porphyry has been back in business for a couple of months, but I forgot to make a post announcing it.

Borogoves

Went through the old posts and spruced everything up so that they at least look no worse than they did in the old theme, I think. Had an oddity with my image styling with Safari 3 and rows of thumbnails, like in this post, where the images load fine the first time, but after the […]

Shades

I’ve decided to go with Barthelme as the new theme. Haven’t really made any structural changes to it, but then again, my previous theme was just a thin coating over Kubrick, so I’m not exactly forging new ground here on the frontier of using canned themes. Barthelme was one of the only themes I found […]

First of many

Well, it’s been less than a month since my last post, so there’s some definite progress on the regularity front. Tonight I updated WordPress to version 2.5, which of course is not particularly notable for any reason, but I did so by checking out the 2.5 tag using svn instead of following one of the […]

“Boredom, lack of productivity, and unambiguous newspaper headlines”

“Reasons for the dearth of recent updates.” I’m back to college next week, so maybe things’ll pick up then.

Introducing the Summer of PMS

Summer of Code is a very interesting, very neat program run by Google. Basically, it’s like a virtual internship with an open-source “company”; you essentially become a developer for an open-source project for the summer, implementing a project for which you submitted an application. Of course, it wouldn’t be an internship without pay: $4500 for […]
