What's New?

August 6, 2013

I had a great time at Shore Leave this year. Instead of bringing R2, I did something different, and made N7 armor from Mass Effect, to enter into the costume masquerade. I got the "Best Workmanship" award, which was pretty cool.

I don't post updates often enough. There really isn't anything new on the website these days. Check out the blog link on the left for more updates than the "news" section shows.

July 2, 2011

The "Weather Machine" is offline now. After nearly 8 years, some of the components are starting to fail, and I haven't really been using it for anything. I think it's time to let it go.

However, the downloads are still available, so that others that want to make one can still find the info here.

October 21, 2009

Made a promotional video for the forum I administrate:

April 16, 2009

Pixel and Herb are now famous.

April 16, 2009

Back-filled a lot of the vacations and trips on the vacations page. After the last overhaul of the photo gallery system, this page was somewhat obsoleted, and I forgot to keep updating it! :)

I should automate it one of these days.

February 20, 2009

New consolidated Blog page for all of my on-going projects and news. I've tried to back-fill it a bit with the Droid and Halloween updates from the last few years.

November 20, 2008

New section for my ancient attempt at composing music. Ed's Music.

August 27, 2008

New essay in the Essays Section.

April 2, 2008

Yesterday, for April Fools, Google announced Project Virgle, which was supposedly a joint venture between Virgin Galactic and Google (hence "virgle") to colonize mars. They invited everyone to submit youtube videos as applications to be among the first colonists.

This was my entry, with the caption "I am death. Every space adventure needs a good dose of death."

I've added some new books into my bookstore that are based on Markov Chains, a statistical model for predicting state changes based on the last few states, or tokens. The wikipedia article makes it look atrociously complex, but for the purposes of randomly generating text that looks a lot like the original sources it scans, the program is quite simple. To generate some new text on the spot, for your amusement, I've made an online version.

Happy leap-day!

I've opened up a storefront through lulu.com, which is the cafepress of the book publishing world. To get started, I've already authored two books in under 24 hours! Check it out here:

NecroBones Books

One is a book entirely consisting of "This page intentionally left blank" notices. The other is completely computer generated using a script I wrote a long time ago (view a random output sample here). It generated the book in probably less than a second. It took a lot longer to format the pages and create the cover design, as simplistic as it is. :)

February 8, 2008

I got the forum working on ModernChivalry.org about two weeks ago.

December 30, 2007

The Droid Project has begun. It's sharing my lightsaber website, since they're both Star Wars hobby projects.

Also-- I've finalized my CoA! (Coat of Arms)

December 2, 2007

As of a few days ago, I've started up a site that was suggested on one of the forums. SwordWiki.org is a wiki for sword information. It's slowly getting fleshed out... Hope it succeeds!

August 17, 2007

After discovering that DOS-BOX will run my old freeware/shareware games and programs in Windows, with the audio working (this is huge, by the way), I decided it was time to make an all-in-one package. It's less than 4.5 MB in size, as of this writing, including 22 games and screensavers/demos.

Also, to celebrate, I just released a "new" one that I wrote a number of years ago but never released. It's the "LCARS" screensaver program I've had collecting dust here. It's included in the archive package, but also can be downloaded separately.

NecroBones.com is 10 years old this month. The domain was created on March 6, 1997. Wow how time flies!

March 20, 2007

Just migrated my account with linode.com to their new east-coast datacenter location, and they also recently doubled the resources for all of their plans. Woohoo! Linode rocks!

December 11, 2006

My new Arms & Armor page is coming along nicely. Many hours of work have gone into measuring and photographing each piece and webifying the results.

December 5, 2006

Finally got around to posting a video of one of my old DOS demos. Quality isn't very good in compressed video since the 3D vector-pixel animation blurs out, such as the starfields at the beginning and rotating map display at the end.

November 3, 2006

'Twas quite the Halloween!

October 27, 2006

Added ModernKnights.org to my collection of domain names and websites.

August 25, 2006

We went to Pennsic this year, and I have pictures!

June 13, 2006

New comics on the Bones Comics site, with sunday releases auto-scheduled up into August, and I'm still adding. (update 7/4: releases are scheduled up through most of October now)
