A quick survey asking your favourite song at the moment. Results will be released later!
School starts soon for me, Thursday to be exact. So that means I will be posting a bit more since I’m not in the off-season (I’ve been developing a lot with Unity and playing a lot of SimCity 5).
2014 for hamstringblog.global2.vic.edu.au will be a big year. I plan to release some exclusive games here. I plan to make a T-Shirt store. I plan to do a lot. Anyway here’s some dot points about some of the most exciting stuff.
- Exclusive Games
- T-Shirt Store
- Unity Tutorials
- LFS (Linux From Scratch)
- And Much, Much More
Now, I’m not great with “ideas” for games. Give me a topic and genre (not too hard) and I may attempt to make it (no promises, its not easy).
Bye Bye 2013, Hello 2014

Just letting you all know that I was elected school captain for 2014 at my school. and lachie (Hamstring) was also elected something. He was elected the Junior School Council (JSC) or as some call it the Student Representatives Council (SRC) President. Remember to check out my blog in the blogroll.

Windows bugs you Safely remove your USB sticks and other drives.
Why does windows do this?
When you Safely Remove your USB stick it makes sure no data is been written to the drive then tells you it is safe to eject. Well, its a bit more complicated but I wont go it to full detail.
When you don’t Safely Remove your USB stick Windows just can’t see it anymore. This is usually alright but if for some unapparent reason your Windows was writing data to this USB stick it could cause damage to your data. The chance of that has dropped increasingly over the past years because of the new systems that manufacturers are adding to help protect that data. Some USB Sticks have LED lights that flash when data is been written.
Overall if your not copying files over to your USB stick you don’t need to Safely Remove USB sticks although it is a good precautionary move.
Sometimes Windows is just too expensive when building a custom pc, It will set you back $100. How about a free, open source linux distro.
Ubuntu is by far the most popular operating system. It is very lightweight and simple.
Puppy Linux is a small linux distro that can fit on a 256mb usb stick and works well on older components.
Mint Linux is a good, colourful linux distro.
Fedora is a nice lightweight distro.
