Before there was Scorched Earth...

Hey look... it's a mini-meme: Before there was Scorched Earth...

Personally, I'd go with: Before there was Gun Wars... there was Scorched Earth.

The original launch of Gun Wars didn't get most of the good stuff we had planned, but development is running on this game again, and I hope to start releasing updates soon which show some of the directions this game is moving in.

Have you made the flip?

If you've tried Lion, the newest version of OS X, you've probably noticed that the scroll motion is opposite everything you've trained yourself to do. If you're like me, you might have found this pretty disorienting.

I stuck with it for a few hours, trying to undo muscle memory, and then switched back. However, my brain was already half in transition, so I decided to press forward. The paradigm is now more focused on the page, and less on the scrollbars, and I think it's going to end up being the right decision.

Unfortunately, I still have to use some Macs running Snow Leopard. If you've flipped like I have, you might find this tool useful:

Scroll Reverser

This is a simple program to do the flip on earlier versions of OS X, and just might make your life a little bit easier. It did mine.
