The liero project

The last couple of weeks I've been busy with a top secret web page project so i haven't had much time left for this project. But now it's time to work to get my hands dirty.
The first thing I've done is that I decided to name the liero clone project. I can't go around calling it 'the liero clone project'. So in good liero spirit I'm naming it 'Mask', which means worm in Swedish.

The second decision is that I have to rewrite just about everything. This is because:
The graphics library need to be decoupled from the gameThe game is using 'fake' physics, which won't work in the long runThe collision detection is not robustEverything became messy and blaaahhYes it's gonna be a pain but 'a young idler, an old beggar'. A very suiting proverb for this page :)

IllegalArgumentException in Maven

Today i was spending a couple of hours trying to get Hudson to use Maven to compile a project. Actually the Hudson part was smooth, but Maven decided to crash when a compilation was started. This was the stacktrace i got:

Working and Steve Jobs

In the video below Steve Jobs tell three stories from his life. I can't help getting inspired by this video since i really don't like working for someone else.
Well, to be honest i don't really like working at all but let's face it, the chance of getting enough money to never work again without working is very slim. However, if i could break free from all the you-have-to-have-a-proper-job type of thoughts and start my own company, i think i would enjoy working a lot more.

There's even a Facebook group

I've seen the words "and there's even a Facebook group about it." in a lot of places in traditional media. Clearly these people have never used Facebook because then they would know that there's a group for just about everything. I'm not really upset about this but somehow it's kind of funny.
