Every Thursday, except last week, because I was being a lazy shit and had drank far too much Baileys, and eaten more Mince Pies that any sane person should eat..
And god only knows how many packets of Rum Chocolate Truffle Balls I gobbled my way through.


Happy New Year

Join in the happy cheeriness in the Happy New Year thread, kicked off as always, by our man from the future, TheRevillsGames.

Plans for 2022

Let us know.


Hello World

A couple of minor tweaks to the newsletter, this week.
The Tubage section is all higgledy-piggledy, not quite itself, and there's a couple of new sections in the main newsletter.

I've added a "It's a bit like a 10-liner, but tweaked to fit in the newsletter better" section.
It runs in GotoJSE.com, so if you feel that's a bit too "Me, Me, Me", you have two options.

A. You can let me know about it being a bit too "Me, Me, Me"
B. You can code your own, send it to me in a private message/email/etc, and get your own little creations in future newsletters.

The template can be found here.



TheRevillsGames wonders if there's an easier way to spin a set of interconnected objects around a specific point.
I can .. vaguely do this. It's wonky, but it kinda works.
Don't ask me to zoom in on it, too, though, 'cos that always goes bad.
And thank god it's not in 3D!!
If you're better at rotational maths than I am, then hop along and chip in with the discussion.
(Shroom Monk's giving it a go, too, so there's at least one person in the thread who knows what he's doing!

Beeing Happy

Rychan gets back to his Bee game.
Sounds like he's adding a little extra complexity into the gameplay, which should hopefully make for a more playable game at the end of the day.

Chilli Boiger

Warm yourself up, on these cold winter nights, with one of Rychan's epic sounding Chilli Boigers.

Man, I sure do wish we had some kind of magic TV that could let us taste these wonderful creations..
