    • Huge Project Launched!

      4 years ago

      CiQuat Woop woop

      As many of you don't know, I am the lead developer on Build-A-Bear Workshop's web team. In February, I began a project to rewrite and tune up some of the slower areas of our site. Almost immediately, what was supposed to be a quick refactor became something much larger as I found more and more code that needed to be fixed or replaced.

      By the time August rolled around, I was getting close to completion when the project expanded yet again. We decided to bring a whole new experience and face to the site on top of the work I already started. That even grew and eventually turned into a whole rebranding effort for our website.

      And at 3am this morning, we finally had everything deployed and facing the public. I am pleased to share with you the new look of Build-A-Bear Workshop's website.

      Now I get to finally rest after this past month of crunch time to get everything ready and focus on whatever bugs pop up after getting more eyeballs on the site. Here's to a huge project success! smiley11.gifsmiley0.gifsmiley9.gifsmiley13.gif

      I was an unregistered lurker on the old site and decided to register on the new site right away. It's amazing to think this has been a 10 year run and all the changes we've seen in that time. Many thanks to RT and to all they do for us.

      We're near the end of the campaign and RT has already raised more than 2.26 million dollars. I'm really happy to be a part of that now. You should also contribute in this final phase!

    • Minecraft Anyone?

      I decided Notch needed more of my money - I bought PC Minecraft to complement my love for it on Xbox. I've been solely playing locally on my own adventures and creations, but now I'm ready to strike out from my world and visit others. Anyone want to play? smiley1.gif

    • MINECRAFT!

      (This was originally a much longer journal entry, by I accidentally clicked out and lost it all. :( )

      I finally bought Minecraft this weekend and am loving it! I'd love to use the online features and play with others, but I don't have anyone on my friends list who plays.

      Hit me up! SeattleCaveman is my gamertag.

    • Amazing what I've missed...

      6 years ago

      CiQuat Woop woop

      I've been kinda gone since mid-2010 when I relocated to Seattle and I stopped doing just about everything I used to do - including keep up with RvB. I've been going through seasons 8-10 over the last couple of days and now I'm half-way through Season 10. I am so impressed!

      The storytelling is now so compelling that I can't just sit back and laugh. I'm drawn in and I really care about these characters. The addition of Monty definitely helped up the game as far as expanding the game universe to allow for better stories, but it's really the storytelling that seals the deal.

      Thanks to the RoosterTeeth team for continuing RvB past its various "logical" ending points and making it into something much larger than where it started.

      Yeah, I saw that too. After I built mine.

      Same basic idea. Hell, I even used mostly the same parts. Freaky.

      not for four months, no, but I did help raise 3 for a 9 month period when I lived with my brother.

      James Jonathan == Jimmy John's?

      That's a sub shop we have around here. That similar naming sounds almost too coincidental...

      That's what we call Jimmy Johns. smiley8.gif

      Yeah, I'm sneaky like that. It cuts down on the spam messages. I used to get a dozen or so a week. Not such a fun time.

      I mean, I'M A NINJA YOU CAN'T SEE ME. :D

    • Vicki

      Thanks. :) I've been sort of sharing the news with everyone who would be interested because I've felt pretty much like I've been wandering the desert for a few years. It really broke my heart to see my old church fall apart (and over -- what else? -- money, of all false idols...) the way it did, with the elders who had been together as brothers for so many years parting ways and whatnot... the church is still running, but I don't know a single person who goes there, and it feels hollow and empty.

      This new church was started by one of those elders, one for whom I have loads of respect, and the church feels vibrant and alive and purposeful and loving and real. It's a very exciting time. It's small; it started out in the Pastor's living room, but has grown to need the use of an elementary school's gym. A handful of people I used to be close with from the old church are there now, but the majority is new people, and they all welcomed my husband and I eagerly when we walked in. It's just... yeah, God is good. That's all there is to it.

      Wow, I feel so wanted. Knowing that your wife was asking about me and all. Yes, I'm doing just wonderfully. Very busy though. The past 2 1/2 weeks I've put in well over 100 hours per week. Lots of people "lining up" before and after Holy Week.

      Honestly, since Alydia has been born, RvB has sort been pushed further down on my list of objectives in everyday life. Part of me feels guilty about that, but then I think about Alydia and I don't really care all that much. I do miss the people here. I run into Lefty and Ringo once in a while on the weekends out for breakfast, so that's cool.

      And you? How's fatherhood? How's the wife? How's life in general? Overwhelming?

      I'll keep checking in once in a while so keep me in your prayers. You're in mine.

    • Nominus

      12 years ago

      Weird, you'd think it'd let me see who was that pissed off. I honestly have no idea how I could have made anyone that angry, haha. I find it rather entertaining since I don't even know at all why somebody would do that. I don't know any mods so really, it's not a big deal to me. Don't really think it's worth reporting, probably just an idiot friend of mine bored at night.

    • Nominus

      12 years ago

      Wow, didn't notice. My mod points didn't go down and it's not in my mod history so I didn't notice it. Hadn't thought I'd pissed anyone off, so this is a bit confusing to me. Guess there's no way I can find out.

    • Nominus

      12 years ago

      Huh? I haven't been hit with any neg mods.

      And don't believe anybody who tells you otherwise.

      I'd make a revolting comment here comparing chest hair to other bodily hair and picking it out of your teeth, but it's beneath me.

      So to speak.

      And I thought gelatin was against vegan since its base is made from animal's bones...

      There is a substitute to gelatin. Think it's called agar... Apparently makes it tastes better.

      im pretty sure they're compatible if its a game that you can play on through the wii on your ds, such as mario kart ds and meteos. those are the only ones i can remember that are possibly compatible. im not absolutely positive though, so dont take my word to the bank.
