GenCon 2012

My cousin TJ and I went to GenCon a few weeks ago. Lots of Pathfinder. I would even go as far as saying too much Pathfinder. With the inclusion of Scotty’s Brewhouse, I GMed 8 games. I played none. I even got drafted into running the special without reading it. Man, I don’t like specials. …

Blow up that PDF

So I run a lot of Pathfinder games. Each of the games are from  a scenario downloaded from paizo.com. The PDF has a ton of info. Baddies to fight, maps of the areas, fun images. When GMing online (using MapTool), I need most of the images in separate files. So, how do I extract all …

WordPress iPad app

How cool is that? I can blog easier that way. Of course, dreamhost has been down so much, I don’t know if this will actually work. I need to do a Hawaii update. I’m in Maui, you see…

Hax0rz again

Switching from joomla to wordpress, my hacker followed me. I tend to get hacked (wonder if it is because dreamhost.com is lame). Fortunately, I found a site that gave me a one-liner to fix said bullsnap. Thanks to magpiebrain. All I need to do is remember to run: grep -lr –include=*.php “eval(base64_decode” . | xargs …

First pass at initiative pad

So, I have decided to post some screenshots about what I’m working on. This is not even alpha. First up, a plain and boring home screen. Not much right? Well, the + at the top right will move you to the Add PC screen. Add the character name, their initiative modifier, and the score. There …

My new techie project

One of the things that I have learned at work, is that I need to find something about technology that excites me. Something that I think about when not at work, and will spend time on. This will only drive me to get back on the techie side of things faster. So, I am going …

Movin on up

Finally kicked the shit out of Joomla. That site got hacked every other month. Stupid hackbots. I’m also going to be working on a fun D&D initiative app for the ipad/ipod. I have no idea on how to do it, but it seems like a cool thing to do. I shall do it! I have …
