Mach Dice is a Hit with the Ladies

Well, the ladies that are under 2 years old, anyways… My friend just sent me this photo of her baby playing with Mach Dice. So adorable!

Ad Hoc Provisioning Limit of 100 UDIDs

Monday, July 6th, 2009

I’ve been using the ad-hoc provisioning to beta test my apps but I’ve recently learned something disturbing. There is a limit of 100 UDIDs that you can register. So I figured, that means I can have up to 100 beta testers per app, right? Well, it seems that once you’ve registered a UDID, you use up that slot. In other words, you had better be really certain who you want to beta test your apps because once you’ve selected 100, you can’t add any more.

If anyone knows any more about this issue, please chime in because I couldn’t really find any links about it.

Happy Fourth of July!

Friday, July 3rd, 2009

Okay, it’s not quite yet the Fourth of July. But I don’t usually post on Saturdays so it’s a bit early. Anyways, I’ve always loved this holiday as a kid because it’s so magical. I mean, sure, I loved Christmas because of the presents and I loved Thanksgiving because of the cranberry sauce (and I’m talking about the stuff that comes out of a can without any bits of real cranberry because really, who wants actual fruit in their sauce as a kid?).

But what other holiday is celebrated by blowing stuff up? (Okay, there’s Guy Fawke’s Night but I didn’t find out about that until much later.) This was the one holiday where I was allowed — nay, encouraged — to set things on fire. And as amazing as fire was by itself, it was taken to a whole new level with fireworks. Not only was fire bright and dynamic, it was also multi-colored and capable of propelling and spinning and sparkling!

Fourth of July probably had something to do with my desire to work in the effects industry and, truth be told, my slight prediliction for pyromania. In any case, I have fond memories of those hot summer days and the nights that came with them because the world seemed almost magical then. So many things seemed possible on those nights and it was all the sweeter for only happening once a year.

Happy Fourth of July!

Boom Dice, Silver Dice

Wednesday, July 1st, 2009

Things are getting pretty busy at work, but I’m still doing a bit of work on Boom Dice. I’m working on a system to unlock new dice and a computer opponent. Here’s what the silver dice will look like eventually!
