Lunar Lander on Windows

April 22nd, 2009

I’ve updated Lunar Lander 0.5 so it works on Windows. You can get a zip file containing the binaries here. The updated source archive contains the MSVC9 project files if you want to build it yourself.

No installer yet since I built this with Visual Studio Express; if you desperately want an installer you can get the MSI for version 0.4.

Nothing new for non-Windows users except a minor version bump.

Have arranged my pictures into a sort of photo-blog-story-thing. Enjoy…

Bluebell Railway

April 4th, 2009

Went to the Bluebell Railway in East Sussex with my parents today. Was pretty awesome, although it rained to start with. Took a bunch of photos:

For some reason S. C. Ruffey is parked here and not on the Island of Sodor.
