; Hello World


I'm currently making a new version of SpikeDislike, and it feels really odd to not be considering an iOS edition.
.. Which is making me consider doing an iOS edition.
But my framework isn't working with iOS.

So.. Do I spend the next month trying to get my Framework to work on iOS?
Or, do I instead rewrite the game in Monkey, so that I can quickly cobble together a version just for iOS?

I should probably sort out my Framework, if I'm honest, but the game's practically ready to go, and it seems daft to have to leave it sitting until I can sort out my own chaotic framework.

I really have no idea which way this will go.


; Javascript Converting

Letting a user select a file, then fiddling with it in Javascript and popping out a result.
Spinal asked about a cheap/free language that could work as universally as possible for a small file-based app, and Jay suggested Javascript.
With a nice little template available, Spinal was able to get his "program" up and running in next to no time.
.. Don't tell "10 years ago" me, but I'm starting to like Javascipt..!! (OMG!WTF!BBQ!!)

; Tag Team Spam

A couple of brand new forum members registered on the site, this week.
The first one appeared, made 3 reply posts to 3 topics, (because most forum scripts require 3 replies before you can post a new topic) and then immediately posted its own topic asking for suggestions of which GameDev Company it should go with.
Another new forum member signed up just a few minutes later, replied to all of the first user's posts, and then just happened to know a really great GameDev Company, so posted a handy link to it!!
What a amazeballs coincidence!!!
Obviously I deleted the spam post, but, for posperities sake, I left their other replies on the forum.
See if you can spot them!!

Those two spammers, I noticed them a couple of days back and so I checked out their profiles. Funny how they both have the same date of birth.

Both joined at the same time too.
