Hello World

Having a right nightmare with the Script Engine, this week.
I left the RPN conversion "until later" because I figured that'd be a simple thing to do.
Not in the slightest.

I've at least started work on the editor, now, so that's coming along OK.

The next "big" thing is probably going to be the sprite editor. Now sure how well that's going to work, but ..
Meh, whatever!!
Worth a try, right!?!


If only I could figure out the RPN.
If you have ANY idea, there's a thread here, asking for help.
I might end up just rewriting a huge chunk of the engine, though. I have a feeling that might work better.

Colour Maths

Spinal gets into a bit of confusion with some colourful numbers.


Current news is that the AstraZeneca jab is actually quite bad for your health.
Fuck.. That's the one me and Mum got.
Alternative choices are being looked into, and Under 30's are getting different options.

Meanwhile, the number of deaths in the UK has now hit over 125,000, with the Worldwide figure hitting over 2.8 million.
It's kinda scary how many that is.

As the UK opens back up over the next couple of weeks, do try to stay safe, and avoid anything obviously dumb.
People are right idiots, sometimes, and gathering crowds are inevitable.

Stay Safe, Stay Away, and if you can stand to do it any longer, Stay Indoors!

Best known for Friday Night Dinner and Chernobyl.
