Crash and Burn
Sorry for not posting yesterday, my coursework took priorty over the blog, and i didnt get a chance to look at the internet so i didnt really have much to write about either.
I finished my business coursework and handed it in today, and i feel much more relaxed. I now have a week and a half to concentrate solely on my project.
Last night i was busy coding a program for gary which allows control, calibrate and test up to 16 servos connected to a usb or serial servo controller, i was very proud of it and want to add more features and release it as a full piece of software after the projects are finished. I cant wait until gary finishes building his Robot and we can test it out properly and make it walk and dance and jump!
I’ve also made myself yet another logo (I can’t stop playing around in photoshop), i’m really not into using the atari logo or game images for the t-shirt, for one thing i dont want copyright to be an issue and i want it to be more individual and less of a leech off the popularity of Atari, tbh i had never played on one for more than an hour until this week… oops i’ve said too much!
I really like the typo blog engine, it runs on Ruby on Rails, so your webhost needs to support it if you want to install it like Dreamhost. Its very smooth and dynamic and there are loads of very good looking themes at the TypoGarden.
I’m not going to be leaving wordpress myself, this is likely to become Laurens new blog, for all her pictures and thoughts.
On the business card front, i have had better feedback from the new design, but i may be changing it again over the weekend. Im considering buying some Business Card CDs which i can print on at home and burn my own CV and small website on with an external link to my blog and websites.
I’ve been looking around a lot at other web companies logos and designs recently, and i happened to stumble across 2inches.com, which is a t-shirt site with some of the best designs i have seen since Threadless. They are also the sole printers of the very limited edition Songbird T-shirts, who by the way have released verison 0.11b which has fixed a lot of the bugs and improve the stababilty of the concept release. Download mirrors here.
Not much else to report at the moment, unfortunatly my blog is going to have to take a backseat for another week or so, due to project work, although there are more details and entries in the Logo competition coming over the weekend..
