Entering beta testing. Doing a lot of testing, waiting on others, etc... I'm looking forward to seeing how this product's pieces fall together.


Had a wonderful weekend with my girlfriend and niece Bryn (3.5yrs). She's still a bit shy around me, but we had a great time, regardless. In case anyone was wondering, she is named for a character from the famous fantasy novel, "The Sword of Shannara".


After spending a good deal of time just messing around, I finally got a good start on the boids program for the xscreensaver. One solid night of coding and... it works! Another night, and it works well! I figure, a bit more tweaking and it will be time to send it off in hopes of it being added to the general xscreensaver package.

I would love to keep expanding it, or split it into several projects. Maybe some interactive work, or, openGL or ...who knows --- it amuses me.
