Catching up.

Hi, it’s been a while, hasn’t it?

New releases: TapeDeck and Pyrothèque

TapeDeck, my exciting joint project with Chris Liscio of SuperMegaUltraGroovy, has made it all the way up to version 1.0.3 without so much as a mention over here on toastup!. The latest release fixes a few more quirks that we’ve discovered in the weeks since TapeDeck’s big introduction last month.

More recently, Pyrothèque got a long-overdue update. Version 1.1.1 incorporates almost a year’s worth of minor bug fixes, including an adjustment to the rocket launcher to better position explosions on monitors of odd sizes and proportions. (That means the fireworks ought to show up properly now, Mister Thirty Inch Cinema Display.)

Web site fixes

One of Google’s robot army helpfully informed me last month that spammers had exploited a hole in the version of WordPress used here at toastup!—resulting in lots of invisible nasty spam keywords that got the blog evicted from Google’s index. The hole’s now been patched, so (hopefully) we’ll re-appear in your search results in the near future. I’ve also gone through and fixed up earlier blog posts that were mangled by the update, so you should be able to see images again in the popular LCD Scrub article, among others.

And, finally—

Expect updates to be light for several months, as we’re expecting a rather large new “version” here at toastycode HQ in the next few weeks. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch (using the email link below, or in your toastycode software product) if you have questions or find any bugs—but also please understand if my replies are somewhat in arrears.
