Hi, I’m Ben Papacek - a software developer from Sydney.
Went for a hike near Springwood today, but forgot the SIM card for my camera so no photos. It was a very hot day but the track was great, I want to do it again.
Added photos from a walk in the Blue Mountains.
Redeployed this yesterday for the first time in a long time. Also fixed up the nginx configuration.
Tank Game 2.0, now uses tilt for directional control.
Oops, accidentally let the SSL certificate expire. There was supposed to be a cron task updating it, but didn't work. Have to look into it.
Helicopter Game 2.3. Added some round launcher icons for Android 7.1, forgot about that in the last one.
Uploaded Helicopter Game 2.2 release. Fixed the rendering bug, seems like it was specific to Android Nougat (API 24+). Also got rid of yaw control (swipe left/right), didn't like it much.
New blog post on setting up UART between a Raspberry Pi Zero and a Microchip PIC.
My 3D printer is fixed now! I've been playing round with OpenSCAD.
Added new web versions of the 3D Globe projects (Mars 3D, Moon 3D and Earth 3D). The existing Android apps were made with JME3, the new web versions use BabylonJS WebGL framework. Still plan to add zoom, maybe also try to incorporate touch/swipe events for mobile devices.
Got a bit over-ambitious with the header image, didn't take server load time into account when testing locally. Reduced image size and added a background colour, bit better now.
Tried to simplify and prettify things a bit, added a new header image. It's a shot of the Brisbane skyline at night from Mt Coot-tha. I got it from Wikipedia Commons.
