2016 Fundraising

Posted: , By Patcoola

Thank you to all our contributors, because of your support we are able to help many people this year. We are committed to providing free and low cost computer services to the Yukon as fundraising for indie game development. This year we collected 3207 Canadian dollars, making for our largest fundraiser since we started in 2010. Thanks to your contributions we are on track to develop Yukon made innovations, and will soon begin the creation of cross-platform video games.

We hope 2017 will be just as successful. Thank you.


Blog Update 2016-03-04

Posted: , By Patcoola

My blog’s layout is now one inch wider, and can switch to a slightly smaller width when resized. For a long time the headline images was made with a 720 pixel width, and was displayed at 645 pixels. Now we can all enjoy the full size of the images. Users of the Rocksmith Song Search service will be happy to take advantage of the wider area. Some blog theme issues have also been fixed.

Recently I finished an administrative service I call the Backup Module. This module creates ZIP archives for backup profiles. Very handy for downloading the server files or uploading files. Next on the list of things to do, is design the theme for my I.T. website. I hope to go into production of my video game in May.


Blog Update 2016-01-09

The blog is now more mobile friendly. Thanks to a mobile theme adaptation I designed. Visitors can now browse my blog with their mobile devices easier.

Browser Pusher, a web browser detection script I created has also been updated for better mobile detection and can detect the Edge browser. Mobile users will automatically view the mobile layout.

Visitors will also notice that the top menu now floats at the top of the screen. Except for the oldest browser I support: Internet Explorer 7.

Page titles now display the correct bread crumbs for categories.

Loading pages no longer flash the background.

Rearrangement of JavaScript placement should help decrease page rendering time, pages should load faster.

A fix for the footer has been made for Microsoft’s Edge browser which had a height issue.

The projects page has updated to list projects from 2015 (last year).


News, Updates and What’s Up [2015-01-12]

Posted: , By Patcoola

Some news and updates with mostly reflections of 2014. I will actually talk about myself this time.

First for the news, I’ve posted my Projects year end report that covers what happened in 2014, what was done what was not. I also posted the Projects for 2015 overview, maybe next year all projects will be multimedia related, figures crossed.

I have created a Java Script Class to change how the Select element looks in most web browsers, I call it button type, it’s to help users of my future Web Apps distinguish editable drop down fields and non-editable button style drop down fields. Very cool, but only applies to a limited number of web browsers.
