Fasteroids (log) - July 30, 2017

I found a major bug in the new version of Fasteroids I released to family and friends. Just before releasing Fasteroids I added some animation to the ship. When I added that animation it did a couple of things: a) made the player invincible, b) when you moved the animation continued to "fire" even if you stopped. I fixed the animation so that when you stopped the animation stopped, but this introduced another bug, the temporary invincibility when you first start/die restart stopped running. I fixed both bugs after midnight (so technically this should be the July 31 blog).

Our living room occasionally suffers from scope creep. DVDs, Bluerays, audio CDs, blank CDs/DVDs, and burned media tend to get strewn about parts of our living room. It starts out clean, but over several months things start to look less organized as more gets added. So when I came across one of my favourite CDs, the AC/DC Who Made Who CD, I decided it was time to sit down and figure out a work flow for ripping audio CDs.
