Adventures in 3d printing. (Post) Good luck! That's looking pretty sharp!
Cheerwine Deluxe 1 + 2: Eighth and a Halfth Anniversary Edition (Post) Download here!

Have you ever dreamed of helping Iggy Koopa save the glorious province of Saskatchewan from the extremely evil Council of Evil? Of course you have! That's exactly what happens in Cheerwine Deluxe, the greatest game of all time (unless it's not). And to make the best game even better, I bring to you: Cheerwine Deluxe 1 + 2: Eighth and Halfth Anniversary Edition!

Yes, it's here. It's the original two Cheerwine Deluxe games in a two-game megapack (OK, there's nothing mega about it, but it sounds nice that way).

Probably the most noteworthy addition is a save system - the game saves your progress at the beginning of each level. I've made a few incremental improvements to gameplay, graphics, audio, and text. I've also ported the game from GM 8 to GM Studio 1.4.9999 and made my ancient code marginally less bad.

Cheerwine Deluxe is a series of surrealist joke games. While most of the game is pretty zany, I hope there's still some semblance of actual gameplay. Keep in mind that this game was made way back in 2011, so it's pretty old stuff. The game is "safe for work", but there is no shortage of content that some might deem offensive! There's also tons of frustrating gameplay, trippy flashing lights, and annoying noises, so if you have a problem with such things, you may want to steer clear of this game.

Have fun.

Post your dreams (Post) Two nights ago I dreamed that I became an Indian.

Not someone from India, or a Native American, but a Cleveland Indian!

I was checking my personal Gmail account and noticed an interesting e-mail. Supposedly it was from the Cleveland Indians baseball team. Out of curiosity, I opened it. To my shock, it informed me that I had been drafted by the Indians organization in the 18th round of the Major League Baseball draft. The communication was quite polished - it had a dark blue "letterhead" with the Indians' modern 'C' logo (no Chief Wahoo here). The text of the e-mail said something similar to the following:

Dream World Cleveland Indians Message
Hi <name>,

Congratulations on being drafted by the Cleveland Indians baseball club in the 18th round of the 2019 Major League Baseball draft. We'd like to congratulate you on joining a franchise with 118 years of winning tradition. One of our representatives will be reaching out to you shortly to discuss all the details with contracts.

Best regards,
Carlos (I think the guy's name was Carlos)

I was initially skeptical of this communication, since I haven't exactly been a baseball superstar at the college or high school levels! However, I logged on to MLB.com and saw that someone with my name and college (the one I went to for grad school) had indeed been selected by the Indians in the 18th round of the MLB draft.

Now I was trying to figure out what to do next. I'm not really qualified to be a professional baseball player, but ever since I was a little kid, I thought it would be awesome to become one. I thought maybe I should reach out to a coach and do a cram course in baseball fundamentals so I could try to fake my way through the rookie leagues (which might make for a great baseball comedy movie!). It would've been better to get picked by the Cubs, of course, but it's hard for me to be too picky when I hadn't even been trying to get drafted!

However, I also began to weigh the downsides of this. I'd have to quit my current job and turn my life upside-down, and I knew my odds of reaching the big leagues are really, really low. I also knew there was a good chance that I was taking away an opportunity from someone who'd attended the same school who had a realistic chance of turning his love of the game into a career. (I suspected that this draft choice stemmed from a case of mistaken identity - they somehow thought I was someone else who actually was a baseball player from my college).

Sadly, the dream ended before it could reach a resolution, but this was quite an interesting one!

Also, I haven't had much experience with lucid dreaming before. This is about as close as I've ever gotten.
Adventures in 3d printing. (Post) Oh well. Let's hope that this really is the last visit from Murphy and his laws!
Adventures in 3d printing. (Post) Good to hear. Good luck! I hope Murphy will leave you alone this time.
Adventures in 3d printing. (Post) Good ol' Murphy... he's such a persistent uninvited guest. I wish he'd show us more manners.

I'm glad this won't be hard to fix, though.
