RECOMMEND T-REX TO... THE INTERNET:
What are the haps my friends


February 8th, 2011: I've been having a lot of fun with BoxCar2D and there's a new version out today! Basically you can set some initial conditions (and choose your track type), and your computer uses a genetic algorithm (before your eyes!) to evolve a car ideally suited to that track, all within your browser. It's amazing to see it start out with such sucky cars, and then come back in a few minutes and see the new cars that are there. Leave it running overnight for ultracars! In this new version you can design your own car, but I prefer to let my computer surprise me with its inventions, watching them as they run the track. BoxCar2D, cats and kittens!


YOU LIKE TO READ: Probably, huh? Well GOOD NEWS: my book To Be or Not To Be (choose-your-own-path Hamlet!) is in the new Humble eBooks Bundle! Up to FIFTEEN books at a pay-what-you-want price, plus you support charity (and artists)! Definitely worth checking out, if you ask me.

NEW SHIRTS: As you may have noticed, I've spent the past all this year coming up with a new shirt design every month. Then I sold them for two weeks only! But now they're BACK... for two weeks only. Check them out! There are some PRETTY FRIGGIN' AWESOME shirts here. There's also a new one about dating, kinda?

One year ago today: Attention, future generations! SORRY, WE TOTALLY USED UP ALL THE FUN STUFF
