People who aren't quite interesting enough to be on Livejournal may have noticed an increase in... unusual posts coming from my Twitter account. The reason for this isn't that I've suddenly started taking illegal drugs (although regrettably I am on about six prescribed ones at the moment) - it's because I recently lost my iPhone and have had to get more acquainted with my work phone as a result. I'm not sure if this behaviour is unique to the Nokia model shown here, but using it to post to Twitter is an experience like no other.

I can only guess that these emails, which have arrived in my inbox over the last couple of months, are from a regular user of Track the T who sometimes doesn't quite turn his phone off before putting it in his pocket, and the subsequent vibrations produced as the bus rattles along result in the link of my name being clicked and random characters being touched in a form of modern expressionist Ouija-board-style art. It's great to know that people actually use something I wrote so regularly - though not exactly a great advert for the iPhone.

I will accept, at most, half the responsibility for this.

(It would be impolite not to give the source, or the other source. By "source", I think I mean "font of madness".)

Special announcement! I noticed after mocking this up that the game just has all its assets lying around in the data folder - therefore, the files for Hanano Puzzle - Hatoful Complete Birdie Edition are available now. (It's really just a ZIP with a PNG and a WAV in it - unzip it to your own data folder after taking backups of them both if for some reason you feel compelled to modify your game in this way.)

After an attempt this evening to finally get a nine-minute song finished, I don't have a whole lot to say just now, just a couple of things that need preserving...

I saw that ZZT was brought up by a poster on Glorious Trainwrecks (he went by the name /\/ewt when he was in the community - I think that's how it was spelled) and that he was proposing a 24-hour game marathon... it made me quite nostalgic for the 24 Hours of ZZT contests that used to be held quarterly, even though I was always completely dreadful at them.

And another one falls to it. It's a very impressive feat of engineering - I've never before seen someone being reduced from bubbly overconfidence to gibbering madly in the space of just fourteen minutes, using a tone of voice usually reserved for when you're actually drowning.

Meanwhile, I discovered that my group of friends who witnessed the madness that was Hatoful Boyfriend have taken to fan-charactering it up in a thread here. I, of course, showed my level of disdain by immediately thinking it was a great idea and thinking up one for myself. I didn't get very far, but I did find this sparrow who looks like Ian Hislop.

Edit: As I now seem to be the first Google result for "Crimson Angel of Judecca", it's probably worth mentioning that I went ahead and did it. A song - not the entirety of the album mentioned above. That would be madness.

Mochimedia, the advert provider that I use for my Flash games, has been having some database trouble over the last while, with seemingly every new day producing another message on login saying "Sorry, something else has gone wrong". Usually it just means that in-depth statistics are unavailable and nothing else exciting happens, but this time it's turned me into a virtual squillionaire.

A recent thread entitled "OMG I'm rich!!!" on their forums indicates that I'm not the only one that this has happened to - many other developers have been awarded anything from a couple of million up to the balance of Tiger Woods' retirement fund. It's just as well this happened at the start of a month, as far away from a billing day as possible - otherwise Paypal would go absolutely mental shutting down people's accounts when automatically asked to receive, collectively, more money than has ever existed in the entire world.

The Village Condo Association Holiday Party was a great success by all reports. The food was extra good & the desserts were abundant. The condo fee raffle donated by the management company was won by Randy Oestrich of...

No, I don't care where you're from - even if you're American, your name is not Randy Oestrich. How cruel did your parents have to be to come up with that one - were they going through different adjectives until they found one that sounded like it could conceivably be a first name? Or maybe their names are Sleepy and Grumpy and after living with that for their entire marriage they didn't want any offspring to be spared.

Also, why am I still playing Verbatim Championship? And I use the word "playing" very loosely - all I'm doing is watching and jabbing a button now and then (which to be fair is just about the limit of what I'm physically capable of at the moment), but I'm just fascinated by watching him fight. I'm even calling it a "him". This is worse than any MMORPG I've ever heard of anyone being sucked into.

Even the participants seem to just want to make up sometimes.
