File Storage Cookie-Based

        There’s been some problems with the File Storage program not remembering people’s passwords over time.   I’ve finally decided to try out making it cookie-based.   It wasn’t hard as I thought it would be, but now I know how to make stuff cookie-based next time I need to. :D

Interview at AOE3Files

        Got an interview yesterday by Riot at AOE3Files.   Was a lot longer than I thought it would be. :p

        Here it is for those interested: AOE3Files Interviews pftq

        I’ve also been asked to answer questions from there for about a week.   If you really want to ask - just go ahead.

AOE3 Racer

        Finally finished this short little map.   I came up with this idea a few weeks ago but didn’t really have time to do anything with it.

        Basically, what sparked an idea for me was the fact that units in Age of Empires III slow down when attacked.   I thought it’d be interesting to see that used as  a tactic for some kind of game.

        Here’s a quote from the description:

        The basic goal is to reach the Llama at the end of the path before anyone else.

         Killing nature units will make you faster and the XP you gain will help you level to better units. Every kill gains you 0.1 speed. At certain levels of XP, you will transform into a Halberdier, then Hackapell, then Nootka Warchief, and finally an all-powerful Learicorn.

         Do whatever it takes to get to the Llama first. Skip all nature units if you wish. Poke each other to slow each other down. Find holes in the wall to sneak your way through. Anything works!

New Online Record!

        As you can probably tell from the main page, the site keeps track of how many people are browsing the site at once.   It also keeps track of stats such as the maximum number of people browsing the site at once, and at what time and date.   These stats you can access by clicking on the counter on the main page.

        Anyways, this morning, at exactly 5:59 AM, the old record was broken. :O

        The old record was (and now stated on the stats page):

        That’s a pretty big jump! :D At least it isn’t as scary as getting the highest visitors per day of
