One of the problems using the flash date function is that if you need to manually test a time period and ‘start’ from a certain time there really is no ‘built in’ function to force the date function not to use your system clock. I was getting frustrated that I could set the starting clock. That would still work for me to see how either the sky was being set or how many stars would appear at night time, but I needed to keep the internal clock synced as I had a lot of time checks for star removal towards the early morning period. So I cam up with a solution which I will show you how. read more ‘Internal Date Class ‘Debug’

Windows 7 Training

I am (at the time of this post) currently at a Microsoft sponsored event learning about Windows 7, the new Operating system that is scheduled to be released on October 22, 2009. The demonstration has been quite useful to learn directly from Microsoft the new features that Windows 7 has in store. The OS seems to have a solid foundation in it’s code. I been trying all day to BOSD the units that they are running the release candidates on and I have yet to do so and I don’t think I would without really manually editing the registry. I even able to use XP Virtual Machine with no problems. Good news for those people who want to upgrade and need XP! The machines only have 3GB of RAM and it’s running super quick! read more ‘Windows 7 Training

Batman Arkham Asylum

Posted by Shane

The game as released yesterday and I haven’t really stopped play it yet. Minus the fact that I did have to go to bed last night (around 3am). The game is totally rad. Great graphics, dialog, cut scenes, and control and the story line is just great!

Kevin Conroy the voice actor who voiced Batman in Batman: The Animated Series and Mark Hamil (Does he ever get tired of being the Joker?) plays the Joker respectively again for this ground breaking game.

Currently it is $49.99 via Steam, however, I think it’s quite worth it since there are three levels of difficulty and also lots of ways you can beat the game. The game currently holds a 92 on Metacritic and that what is was before the game was officially released.

As the lyrics to Twinkle Twinkle Littler Star go:

Twinkle, twinkle, little star, How I wonder what you are! Up above the world so high, Like a diamond in the sky.

This is now true for my flash header. After three days of looking for the perfect star animation and designing the very complex code that will add stars in intervals (or all at once if it has gotten to that point) or to remove the stars in intervals (or all of the stars if it has gotten to that point).
