Cruise Monkey Want Mobile

It’s almost time for the 4th annual JoCo Cruise Crazy cruise, and once again, I’ve foolishly decided to spend WAY too much of my free time on putting out an app to be used on the ship.

What’s Different This Year?

Almost everything. I started out refactoring last year’s CruiseMonkey codebase, but it was a bit creaky. It’s definitely interesting to see how far HTML5 “native” app development and PhoneGap/Cordova development have come in just a year.

After playing a little bit with AngularJS for a work project I was really impressed and wanted to refactor to Angular for this year’s CruiseMonkey. In the process of doing so, I ran into Ionic, an HTML5 framework built specifically for making mobile UIs, and reworked the frontend using that.

While there was a direct line from there to here, in the end the codebase looks nothing like CruiseMonkey 3. . . . → Read More: Monkeying Around

Sorry about the RSS Feed

I finally got around to switching my blog over to point to RacoonFink.com, instead of ranger.befunk.com/blog. I’ve had the domain for some time (and have been using it for Fink e-mail) but had never gotten to updating the blog links.

Unfortunately, I noticed too late that it made RSS readers see everything as new. Please excuse the spamming, it won’t happen again. 🙂

Don’t Cry Fowl On April Fool’s Day

Some turkey may call your bluff. The story is about a good friend of mine, we’ve known each other since first grade. It’s not an April fool’s joke, but it’s certainly better weird news than most of the attempts at humor I’ve seen today. Talk about weird. Glad to hear he’s OK, anyways…

I’m not sure what to think about this.

Don’t expect updates right away…

I’m totally hooked on this game Gang Wars. It reminds me a lot of the oldskool BBS games like TradeWars and such.

Is your password safe??

Well you’d better find out. There’s all kinds of unsavory folks on the net, you wouldn’t want them to get it, would you?!
