I'm working on a Stratego game for a course on Game Programming. This is what it currently looks like:

The interface and basic controls are coming along nicely, so I will soon be able to direct my attention to the best part: killer AI! And if there's some time left, I have plenty of ideas for changing and extending the rules and possibilities of the classic game.

Star Trek timeline

After doing a small update to my 'Spacerocks' page recently, I took the time to revisit another scifi themed project, a Star Trek timeline I made a few years ago (the old one can be found here). I completely redid it, and this time around I decided to write a Python script that would do all the math and draw the image for me using a database of series and movies, instead of messing around with counting pixels in Photoshop.

The top bar is our actual time, and the bottom bar is the in-universe years that are portrayed in the Star Trek productions. I thought there weren't any other time lines that visualized the Star Trek universe in such a way, but I just discovered a fairly similar one. Oh well.

If you've seen any other instances of double timelines linking real and fictional histories, I'd really like to see them :)

Last week I made a simple little program that keeps track of your active window. The idea was that knowing how much time you waste would help in getting back to work.

Of course, now I first need to win back the time I wasted on programming this...

Anyway, it has super cool pie charts and you can get it here if you're interested.

Random Thought

Can you be "fluent" in a programming language? Or does fluency require you to speak it?
