2D Space Shooter "Asteroids"HTML5 CanvasAsteroids

Javascript | CSS | HTML | HTML5

Long time no post! I have been rather busy with the outside world. Along with doing a lot of other things. Soon ill be posting more on some small projects I have been working on, so here is the first.

Basically a recreation of Asteriods (but different!) Currently no levels, or scoring just a death match you verses a bunch of enemies space ships and Asteroids!

I created this in response to games and there lack of ability to understand players. Sometimes simple game play is better than overly complicated. Even a 2D game can be fun! What kills games goes beyond this into politics of business that if game owners and developers actually made solid business plans they would find and endless supply of players.

Enough about that... This game I found myself returning to so many core math skills and even renewing my memory on Trig, Calculus, Physics, Geometry, and of course Alegbra. In a high end this game can do well over 200,000 calculations per second which back ten plus years ago this would not even be feesible.

5mm HandsKreo, Transformers, bendable hands.

Transformers | 3D Modeling | Transformer Customizing | 3D Printing

This was a fun little one day project. Basically I have a Transformer (Superion Revenge of the Fallen w/ Snowman add-on kit.)  the add-on kit adds hands that can open and close nicely, however I wanted them to be able to do a bit more. Additionally I made a new sword that is much large than the first one I made. (He has a hard time holding it!)

Anyways check it out...

3D Swordtinkercad

Transformers | 3D Modeling | Transformer Customizing

So its been a good minute and I have posted anything in along while but figured I'd start.

After about a good number of sites after the last year+ I have finally gotten tot he bottom of the list... Leaving a little spare time (knock on wood!)

I have started back into what got me into computers... 3D Modeling. 

I have bounced around checking out some new and some old but updated programs. Boy has 3D changed! Being able to model something right in a browser without Flash or some crazy plugin!

Right now my favorite happens to be tinkercad.

Its basic, but allows for some great complex shapes if you can wrap your head around what it consists of... (VERY Much like my old days of "Adobe Atmosphere..." R.I.P...)

Anyways my passions being numerous at this point... Dance, Computers, Transformers, and now 3D (again)... What makes it so interesting is the ability to even "print" this so I can then see it in person. My work right now is adding on to Transformers... Later I would like to take on the task of potentially making my own Transformer.

Anyways check out some of my work...

How to click through overlaying element.Transparent Image click through


So designers now days and in general like to get really fancy! Thats great it looks great I get it... However it doesn't make life  easy and one situation I tried to cut a corner and found myself in a situation. Needless to say most browsers support this so I am good with it... Basically the design called for an overlaying border that was 1px all the way around an image. Yes I could have done 4 images and connected them.. But that is messy so I just positioned absolute bla bla bla... BUT! Then when I needed to click on something below it lo and behold the stinking overlay stole it! So here is the CSS fix...


pointer-events: none;

Recursively find files and move them to another directoryFind files and move them to another directory

Unix | Ubuntu | Linux | Terminal

I had some software that made individual directories for each day of the month a picture was in... Needless to say that was annoying. So I needed to pull them out and place them into one directory...

find /path/to/files/ -iname "*.jpg" -type f -exec mv {} /path/to/where/you/want/them ;

Dumping a mysql database that is on a different hostmysqldump

MySQL | Unix | Ubuntu | Linux | Terminal

Basically had an issue with phpmyadin and needed to get a decent dump of someones database. Problem is they setup restrictions on ip addresses so I had to be a bit creative. Most my normal tools such as SQL pro could not connect around all this (At lease to my best effort.)


mysqldump -h -u mysql_user -p database_name table_name
