Jeopardy Maker for MAC

This is an old app I made back in high school that seemed to have problems on MAC in recent years after the newest OS came out.  After a lot of trial-and-error, the download should now work.  Long-story short, it needed to be distributed as a DMG and not a zip.  You can download it here:

A bit more detail for those who may run into the same problem distributing there own software on MAC - the Adobe MAC projector generated in Adobe Animate appears to have a bug ever since CS5 that causes the MAC projector (app file) to corrupt when stored in a ZIP folder.  This wasn't a problem in older versions, as the Jeopardy Maker MAC version was fine for many years after its initial release.  Right now, the solution I'm using is to create a DMG file in TransMAC and then storing the MAC projector (app file) there instead before uploading for people to download.

Afterthoughts (Piano)

Short, mellow piano improvisation from the Halloween weekend. For some reason I really like the ringing in the A# note, so I just ended up spamming that here lol

Originally wanted to add more ambience after the strings, but couldn't quite make it work.

Poker for CSharp and QLearner

Short project for fun - you can play #poker against bots as well as load up the game into QLearner and other #ai / machine learning projects.  There is even a play-blind option to play without looking at your cards if you want to play a bit crazy like me. Tongue (in all seriousness, it's good training for reading your opponents).

The game can be run standalone here:

The source code and libraries for running in QLearner and C# projects are on Github here:

This is also the same code I used to simulate a million games for the stats on winning hands here:

15th Anniversary for

Fun fact - my site was launched exactly 15 years ago now on 6/6/06. Grin

At the time, my right wrist was broken, and I was teaching myself to program formally for the first time using just my left hand, with the site itself being my first dive into HTML, PHP, MySQL, etc.  Before that, I was modding games using trigger/XS code for things like Age of Mythology / Age of Empires 3, but these weren't real languages that could be used outside of those specific games.  It's also the same year I joined Newgrounds and bunch of other sites, started playing tennis with my left hand and becoming ambidextrous...  Then the year after that, I would get into filmmaking, composing music, trading stocks, etc before getting disappointed by college and further disappointed by adult life.

God's Flashlight Book

Since the book is in the Sci-Fi section, that means I technically live in Sci-Fi now. Tongue
