Updates to Jeopardy Maker and Gameshow Maker

After about half a decade, Jeopardy Maker and Gameshow Makers finally started showing some compatibility issues with the newer computers and operating systems.  I've gone through and recompiled both programs to bring them up to speed, so they should be running fine again no matter what computer you're using.  I've also taken the opportunity to add HTML/images to the original Jeopardy Maker, as that was a long requested feature there.  And lastly, questions/answers files will automatically be trimmed to avoid issues where extra rows show up from blank lines.

I'm also looking to build a more stable community around these tools if there are any web/product developers out there willing to help with this.  I realize after the long hiatus in updates that I should probably be passing the torch on maintaining and supporting these programs.  Please contact me if you might be interested.

Farther (Piano) in Newgrounds Picollage 2015

Pleasant surprise today to see that my piano piece Farther was used in the Newgrounds Picollage this year.  Not a huge deal and not really sure my music fits there, but small surprises like this always brighten my day.

Ironically I never really gave much thought to that piece and was on the fence about submitting it.  It's always the stuff you didn't give much thought to that end up getting attention. Tongue

Tech Trader User Guide

Spent some time writing out a User Guide for Tech Trader and cleaning up the API kit a bit more.  I'm a bit on the fence on whether to make the program public or not, so a lot of this is just to test the waters.  Still, I suppose it doesn't hurt to have documentation fleshed out more in case I myself forget one day how to use it.

Let me know if the guide is helpful or not and whether there's anything I should change.

Lost in Koto Box

Little low on inspiration lately.  Wrapped up two older songs instead that I started a year ago.  They were actually pretty close to finish but just didn't have an ending.  Me lacking inspiration right now didn't help either, but hopefully I didn't butcher things too badly.

One other song I started but is incredibly short would be the trailer piece below.  Really should be longer but I can't find a way to continue the intensity I opened with.
