Other Ten percent 7/19/12

Jul 19 2012

I’ve been a WRITING MACHINE today and I’ve done a ton of stuff for PCWorld. One thing I haven’t done though is think a whole ton about my coding project for the week. I may just do a smaller scale thing that uses a few tricks for the hell of it or something? I’m not really sure. Also maybe I should start making them bi-weekly so I actually have the time to make them something I really like. The first one that I spent a lot of time on seems to have gone over relatively well and the rest…not so much. Oh hey here are your links.
