Every Friday, Moving again


Say farewell to Zen Hosting.
After the third 'for exactly the same reason' outage of the year, I decided enough's enough, and have since moved the whole kit and kaboodle to a different server.
We're now on Kloudhost, a company that I hadn't heard of until this week. Whether that's a good or bad sign, I'm not sure.
But the new server seems nice and fast and stable, and I will, of course, be watching things like a hawk to ensure the site continues to stay running.

Meanwhile, with all the server's I looked at over the past week, I'm tempted to write a nice lengthy Article listing them all.
It'd sit nicely alongside the list of languages that I posted last year.
.. Hmmm..

Anyhoo, things are running mostly smoothly, and the transfer went without a hitch.
Good to know it's a doddle to move, should we ever need to, again.



; Further Flapping

Rychan continues to build up his NES - Assembly Code version of Flappadiddle, and has now released his first test rom.

; Sprite Management

What are your best tips for cramming oodles of sprites into a spritesheet?
Hmmm.. If you used greyscale sprites, you can use HoboBen's Bakefont technique!!


; Marketing 101

TheRevillsGames finds a ton of posts all about Marketing do’s and donts.

; Cardboard Kits

; Wireless Charging

'if a person were to move in the way, Cota would angle the beam to avoid them.'
.. What happens to you if it doesn't!?!


; Adverts

The best thing on telly are the adverts.
Because there's fuck all else on.
Thank god there's so many adverts to watch!

; Number Change

The move to a new server seems to have changed the 'Unique Identifier' that I had working for the Tweet-To-Upload functionality.
Bit odd.
Update as required. (I don't think anyone else is using this, though!)


; Shirtless.
