Install sun-Java6-bin on Ubuntu 10.04

June 3rd, 2010 No comments

Just a quick tip. If you try to install Java in a fresh Ubuntu 10.04 system you won’t get very far as the Java moved to the Partern repository. To fix this open the command line and write:

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner"
sudo apt-get update

Then you can install your Java :)

Lego Mindstorms – Interesting Advanced Projects

March 27th, 2010 No comments

When I was a kid I remember building small houses and castles using my Lego pieces collection. Even back then you could tell that people creating that stuff had a really creative thinking and ideas. Looking at todays Lego robotic products you can safely assume that they still have that flare of creativity :)

Few years back I also bought my first Mindstorms kit. I was quite amazed by the possibilities of this kit. However, me as a person, I have short imagination :) therefore I quickly run out of ideas and moved on to other stuff.

Recently I came across some interesting projects done using the newest NXT mindstorms by Lego and I was truly amazed BIG TIME! Some people have really clever ideas and they implement them beautifully. Not only they are able to put together a working body frame but also there is some clever programming too! Read more…

How to install Box2D for BlitzMax

December 11th, 2009 7 comments

Well, generally when a deadline is approaching I tend to lose focus from work :D . Well having one close deadline, today I remember to refresh my BlitzMax knowledge! BlitzMax is a 2D game development environment that I bought some years ago. If you are interested on 2D game programming you should check it out. When I was doing my research, I found it to be at the exact abstract level that I needed it to be, hiding enough details from the ‘boring stuff’ and at the same time having great flexibility.
