Shenzhen I/O

Shenzhen I/O is a programming game, released in November 2016. You take on the role of an electronics engineer, designing curcuits and coding them.

Of course, there is a lot more to the game. There is a story in the game, although I have to admit that I never really took the time to learn the story. I just wanted to work on the programming challenges because that's what the game is all about. You …

My Setup

I did previously do an article on Linux, and I figure there might be some people who are interested in seeing the setup I use for myself. As I probably have mentioned a few times before, I only use Linux. The server that this website is served from is running Debian (link opens in a new tab), one of the oldest Linux distributions that is still under active development. It is not THE oldest still …

Carmageddon

In 1997, the game Carmageddon was released to great controversy. I'm old enough that I still remember the release of the game. In Norway, where I live, it was released without any great hassle. Sure, it was rated 18+, but there were no further restrictions or censorship. However, it was censored in some countries, and even outright banned in certain countries.

Let's sum up the basic premise of the game. You control your car through …

Dawn of War - Dark Crusade

Dark Crusade is the second expansion for Dawn of War, and this is where the series definitely took a turn for the better. Not that Dawn of War was not good before Dark Crusade, it's just so much better after Dark Crusade.

The importance of HTML

I just came across an article on HTML, and it was a surprising read for me. First of all I feel like I should say that I am not a professional web developer. I am not employed in the field and I've never worked on any large projects except my own website. Because of this, I probably am not following the current trends in web development. I learned some basic web development through a course …

Master of Magic

Among the many games that I played growing up, I still play some of those games to this day. Master of Magic, originally released in 1994, is a timeless classic.

Dawn of War - Winter Assault

In 2005 we got the first expansion for Dawn of War, the expansion is Winter Assault and it added a new faction as well as multiple campaigns. There were also changes made to the existing factions, some changes seemed a bit odd in that they limit some choices regarding weapon upgrades to your units.

The new faction is the Imperial Guard consisting of weak infantry, but powerful vehicles. They also have multiple commander units …

Patreon page

This website of mine started out as an educational project I was doing in my free time. I just wanted to build a website from the ground up. This meant starting with a Linux computer, configuring it to run as a web server, setting up the server software. Then coding the website and all features myself. This is essentially a control freak's project. And that in itself was an immensely rewarding experience.

It turned into …
