Intersection of programming, maths and art

### New theme

Wow. I actually completed one of my larger projects. After however many weeks it ended up taking, I’ve finally finished the theme for this blog. As far as I know from the testing I did, it functions properly. That’s no guarantee though, so if you encounter any problems don’t hesitate to mention it. Now, I’m […]

### Gmod project, prison

Only 2 months this time, I’m on such a roll. Not much to say about the whole thing. Click on each image to see some information about it. The c17 maps are next, of which there seem to be 16. So, if these prison maps are anything to go by, expect that to take 130 […]

### Why 0 to the power of 0 is 1

Sorry for the lack of top-notch mathematical formatting, but I’ve done my best to make everything still look good. 00 is an interesting case when it comes to exponents. Whilst anything to the power of 0 is 1, raising 0 to any power gives 0. So what happens when you raise 0 to the power […]

### Gmod project, coast

After going from here to my other site, I’ve decided to come back to the blog format. Maybe, once I get my theme done, it’ll support slideshows and everything will be sweet. So the first one was done on 2016-10-16, next one on the same day (or maybe they were both just uploaded then?), the […]

### Crossbow Endurance: Cracking the Code

First of all, if you haven’t seen Crossbow Endurance, you might want to do so now. Here I’ll be dealing with the second version of this… unique video: You’d be forgiven for not noticing, amongst the constant barrage of crossbow shots, that there are a few coded messages spread throughout the video. So, naturally, I’m […]

### Some grammar pedantry

Grammar. Something many people seem to lose all concept of when typing ideas through their computers, but also occasionally when speaking. So here I’m going to catalogue a few common mistakes people tend to make. First, let’s start with basics: the differences between “your” and “you’re”, “its” and “it’s”, and “their”, “they’re” and “there”. I […]

### Kerkythea SketchUp rendering

A while ago I heard of Kerkythea, a program that can generate very nice-looking images from 3D models. And, as an added bonus, it comes with a very helpful SketchUp plugin to send your model, complete with sun and lights (which can be added using a naming scheme defined by the plugin), to the Kerkythea […]

### Customising 2048

Usvsth3m used to have a tool where you could make your own 2048 games with various text and images. This no longer works (probably due to their move away from particular site), but you can do the same thing yourself. First, go to https://github.com/gabrielecirulli/2048 then press the green “Clone or download” button, and press “Download […]
