December 21, 2000

Well, it's almost Christmas so Hapy Holidays everybody!! I'm heading back to Halifax for two weeks so there probably won't be any updates before I return. I'll be too busy eating.
But when I do get back I have my second Java game to put up. Nothing huge, just a little Missile Command clone called "Scuds". Just something I threw together partly to have another game to put up and partly to learn some more about Swing and other Java 2 stuff. Only took a few hours to do. It will be up in the new year.

December 7, 2000

Man, it has been a while since I've updated the old site here. Sorry. Work has been damn busy lately. Besides that, just too many other things going on. But now that it is so cold outside, I'll try and keep the updates more recent (but let's be honest, 2 months isn't really that long for an update on most websites).
Finally added some more moview reviews from my man Travis. Check out his views of Pay it Forward and The Sixth Day. Man, we are up to 31 reviews!
The My 2 Cents sections has seen several additions as well. All of a political nature. I give my high-brow views on each political party and the group of leaders. Also, I have an in-depth look at the election situation south of the border.

October 2, 2000

August 28, 2000

Changed the slogan in case you haven't noticed. Now it is more of a desciption of the way things work around here.
Warped Productions will be moving soon from its current location to a new host, most likely Tripod. If they give me a domain name I like, that is. But don't worry, you will be redirected when the time comes.

August 14, 2000

Added some more of my 2 cents about Star Wars nerds.
Well, I just wrapped up Rock and Roll Weekend. Got to see AC/DC on Saturday night and Foo Fighters, Our Lady Peace, and Smashing Pumpkins, amung others. I can't wait for the weekend to get here so I can recover!

August 2, 2000

Added a index on the links page to make stuff a little bit easier to find.
Moved the directory to its own section. The directory is brought up into a different window so you can use it as a reference.

July 28, 2000

To help people out, I created a little interactive directory that allows you to see what's in each section. Hopefully this will make it a little easier to find things. It requires the Java 2 plug-in. But it is well worth it.
Changed my email address to

maroger@sympatico.ca.
Just a few other touch-ups here and there.

July 23, 2000

Unfortunately, my box at home is in the shop, so the release of my Asteroids game is on hold. But don't you dispair, because as soon as the beast is home, I'll touch up the edges and let you have a crack at it.
