If you’re so inclined, you should join me in doing a happy dance!

Its finally ready! 


Simon, in Silverlight 2!

I’ve had this sitting on the front and back burners for the last… few months (has it really been that long?).  Got the design to my buddy David at HackingSilverlight.net about 3 or 4 weeks ago, he gave it brains and sent it back to me a week later… but in silverlight 3.  What the heck?!

I want the world to actually get to PLAY WITH THIS!!  So I rolled it back to silverlight 2… but there was a problem or 2.  The sounds wouldn’t play, we didn’t have all of the sounds anyway, and the font wasn’t playing nice!

Ugh – and then work.  Why the heck does that thing which makes my life actually operate smoothly have to come into the foreground just when I need some time to do my little projects?!  Geez.  What are these people thinking – do they think they pay me or something to do their stuff?  Oh yeah, right.  They do.

Long story short, its DONE! 

Go!  Click on the picture – it’ll take you there.  Have fun!

Oh, and tell me what you think in a happy comment, if you please 😀

Fun commenting in c#

There’s this little piece of FacingBlend that I originally designed just as an icon and my buddy David said, “Hey!  You should make that into the REAL THING!”

So I did – I made it larger.  There were a few things… ok, a LOT of things… that needed to be modified when it was in its larger form, further details and the like, but the base model itself was still near to exactly the same – but then it required more fun stuff, like some level of interactivity, nice animations so that when YOU do something IT does something.

Ok, I’m being vague, and somewhat on purpose because I’m in the middle of “rolling it back” because the crazy guy did it in Silverlight 3 – but oh wait.  Nothing’s supposed to “Go live” in Silverlight 3 according to the SL3 Development site.

So I’m going through some of the C# when I find a comment.

// blow up...

I can’t help it but laugh.  I think that would be one of my absolute favorite things when going through someone else’s work and modifying things.  The little comments that only someone who knows how to go through the stuff will find.
