I spent time tonight organizing and cleaning up old CDs* — mostly backups — and in the process found some old projects of mine. QBasic Games and Midnight Player. I recommend giving castles3.bas a shot. I’ve got other interesting things on those CDs too… (namely: the first seven releases of Sphere ever, crazy videos – including guys who tried to build a mach-one muzzle velocity potato gun, and I apparently also wrote a frontend to a gameboy emulator.) I may or may not upload them, depending on interest and time.
* Concerns about the lifetime of optical media are valid. Most of my CD-RWs don’t work and some of the CD-Rs are broken too. They’re only 2 to 5 years old.
p.s. I apologize for the performance problems of this site. My ISP is hosing me lately. Not sure if I can even complain since I’m not supposed to be be running a server. (You’re NEVER supposed to run a server.)
p.p.s. Do postscripts go after the footnote or before? :)
p.p.p.s. WHERE HAS MY LIFE GONE?? I used to be at least semi-interested (if not semi-decent) in computer art. I also wrote some pretty okay AI algorithms (used a rudimentary possibility search instead of hard-coded state checks) when I was 15 or 16. Now I feel like a stuffy old manager working on (important…) things like build systems and architectures. Where’s the style!? Even the first Sphere demos looked better than some of the latest ones…
