NextWar on the Xbox 360?

I'm going to go hide in my little cave and tinker away with my programming for a while.

When I emerge, maybe there will be a new tower defense game available on Xbox Live.

If I don't give up before then.

LOLExec: A Dynamic LOLCODE Interpreter

Well, today I released version 1.0 of LOLExec. LOLExec is an interpreter for the esoteric programming language LOLCODE. For example, here's the Hello World program:


I've put it up for download here:

In the binary executable package, I've included a few sample applications along with the interpreter: for example a prime number finder and a few solutions to Project Euler problems implemented in LOLCODE. Also available is a large suite of unit tests that I wrote during the course of development. Feel free to use them as you wish.

Finishing school

So on wednesday evening, Melbourne High School had its annual Speech Night event at Hisense Arena (formerly Vodafone Arena) in central Melbourne. It was effectively a graduation ceremony for us year 12's, and marked the end of our time at MHS.

My 4 year journey through MHS has certainly been memorable, and I am certain that I'll not forget it. I sure enjoyed my time there and, as cliche as it sounds, I'm sad that my time there has now come to an end.

That said, I am proud to be able to call myself an Old Boy of Melbourne High School. Now all that's left is to eagerly await the announcement of the VCE results on December 15th.

I sleep now. Valedictory dinner last night, "slept" over at a friend's house afterwards, played Halo 3 and talked all night instead of sleeping. ^_^
