Assembly so far #1

Jul 21, 2015

It’s been about a month since I started learning assembly. I’m loving the language! it’s not even close to C or Java. It’s been like this giant puzzle.

Progress so far has been good, but not great. I think most of my struggles have been trying to restrict myself to registers, and breaking down tasks to single instructions. After working so long with the luxury of for loops, while loops, and if/then blocks, it’s been hard to visualize what I need to accomplish.


Gulf Hagas Cabin trip

Jul 20, 2015

Hiked Gulf Hagas Brownville, ME, 45°28'40" N 69°17'6" W. Distance: 7.5mi and 5:30 round trip. Around 75ºF, rain.

Spent Friday and Saturday in the Wildwoods Cabin's with Pauline, Cindy and Tristan. Hiked the Gulf Saturday, and the rain was mostly a drizzle, but was a bit of a down pour for quite a bit of the hike. But that was okay, as we got to test out some rain gear and get some practice in the rain.

Tog vs Dino

Available in the Apple App Store.

In this retro blast from the past, relive the action of 80's style hand held games!

A caveman has to eat right? Besides, that big 'ol dinosaur isn't going to miss one or two eggs will she?

Play Tog, the daring Neanderthal as he dodges lava rocks and avoids getting his eggs stolen by pterodactyls flying overhead.

Get close, but not too close, and use Tog's trusty hatchet to knock Dino into dream land and bring her eggs back to Tog's cave. Dispatch a similar fate to the pterodactyls before they steal Tog's hard earned eggs, while he is away from his cave.
