Every Friday, Thinking about noodles


; Hello World

Bloody hell, SoCoder's another year older.
12 years, but certainly a lot less broken after it's extreme makeover, last year.

My iPad's Safari is having shitty slowdown issues when typing into the text boxes. It isn’t noticeable until you hit the delete key, but then it stalls and glitches like crazy.
..But it's also doing the same thing on other sites, too, so it's obviously an iOS wide issue.
I really should look into it, though, as it doesn’t seem to happen on AGameAWeek.com, so I’m not sure why it's only happening on SoCoder.


Other than that, there's still that odd occasional layout glitch, and a lacking Mudchat replacement.
The showcase entry stuff could also do with a bit of neat ending up, so it's a bit more usable than just a fuckton of boxes!! But how to do that neatly, and without limiting in the silly ways that other sites do?
It's SO much easier to have a box and let people link to whatever they like, rather than limiting it to things that have to be uploaded.

Lots to think about as we head into another year of everything getting older!!

; IRL Silliness

Continuing on from last week's plan, Jay begins his adventure into the word of paper and pens.
After a prod from Dabz, he's settled on Foldapuz as the title, and definitely didn’t choose that just because Foldapuz.png is an 8.3 filename!! Jay isn’t sad and pathetic, like that.
He’s now having to code all the bloody puzzles, and an entire website to go along with it.
