Redesigning the Site with Bones

I have decided to explore building my own theme for the site. Previously, I had one built on top of PaperPunch, and more recently used the default Twenty-Thirteen theme.

Android GPS game and possible site move

Android App I have been working on an app/game for Android that involves the GPS.  The idea is that it will uncover areas as you explore them, similar to a fog of war effect found in most RTS games.  I haven’t gotten the fog of war part down yet, but I now have a little… Read more »

An Introduction
