The Prez

11. Personal
When is it appropriate for a leader to change their opinion? Both sides have been accused of flip-flopping on important issues – President Bush on establishing the Dept. of Homeland Security and steel tariffs, Senator Kerry on the Iraq war. But changing opinion due to thoughtful reconsideration ought not to be derided as flip-flopping. Tell us about a time when you had an honest change of opinion on a topic of national importance.

President George Bush Responds:
President Bush declined to answer this question. – Editor

I found that pretty amusing. He’s the only candidate that didn’t answer the question.

of ants and squares

I’m watching an ant trying to climb a box. He can climb up the cardboard fine, but this box also has a sticker! And as soon as he reaches the sticker, he falls off.

It’s very amusing. He doesn’t have a reason for climbing the box, there’s no great rewards waiting for him at the top. He isn’t trying to go beyond the box, he could simply go around it. He just wants to go up the box. But he fails. Quite amusing.

In other news, the release of DCSquares went very well. So well, in fact, that I had to release an update today to fix a few serious bugs, and add a few new features that were suggested over at DCSquares 1.1 is available at the same place, and I added a ChangeLog to the download page for anyone interested in what’s new.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. Lets make DCSquares the most addicting dreamcast game since Puyo Pop Fever!

DCSquares 1.1 is out! This release fixes several bugs in 1.0, as well as adding several new features. Check out the ChangeLog on the download page to see what’s new! Also, due to a bug in 1.0 that could allow cheating, the high score ladder has been reset and will only accept passwords from 1.1 or newer.


Our latest game is out! Check out the all-new, addictive DCSquares!

Instructions, screenshots, cd covers, and binaries for the Dreamcast, Windows, and MacOS X are available at the DCSquares homepage!

DCSquares 0.8

In case you haven’t played it before, everyone should go play Squares 2.



We’ve been working on a clone of Squares 2 for the Sega Dreamcast, Mac OS X, linux, and Microsoft Windows. Mac users can check out a sneak preview here.

This has only been tested on Mac OS 10.3 (Panther) and is the first time I’ve released a game for Mac, so I’d like to get an idea whether I got it right or not 🙂

Stay tuned for the Windows, linux, and Sega Dreamcast versions, as well as the official website, which should be ready in the next few weeks!
