Vacation Video Log 2011

Jenny and I went to Walt Disney World toward the end of 2011. We left in the morning after Thanksgiving. We, okay I, thought it would be fun to talk to our Flip camera during the trip and keep a Vacation Video Log, or vvlog. I've embedded those videos below for your viewing enjoyment.

Maybe HTML5

I had a thought the other day, I wonder if anyone has built a game engine on HTML5? As it is the latest in web technology, someone had to be thinking in that direction. So I did a little googling and found LimeJS. It is fairly interesting open-source project built on Google's Closure Libraries. I don't really know what I just said, but I downloaded it and start to play with the classes and features built into this JavaScript toolkit.

Below my first test sample. I know the artwork is crude, I gladly admit I am not an artist. I did build the dragon myself, using a few tricks I've learned from my artist friends over the last few years. I used limes as scales and part of a cross section of a lime for the plating. I spent much more time on the art than I did the programming, which is a sign of a good engine.

I am excited to keep working with LimeJS, and I hope to show more samples here in the future.
