#30DaysOfGeek Day 4: Greatest application written to date

So here we are. Day 4 of #30DaysOfGeek.

Today: The greatest application written to date. By who? By me or by someone else? Written up until this point, or written to date-stamp things? Maybe written to take out to a dinner and movie?

What if you’re a geek who doesn’t write applications? I don’t write applications. The geekiest thing I would probably write is a webpage and I’m not sure you can classify that as an application. Even then – it’s no longer in my job description. If I was going to write anything it’d be a story for literotica.

Well, hangonaminute, I’m sitting here typing into WordPress. I did do some coding in here recently. And over on Bunny Abandonware. So maybe it’s not an application, but I did play with some smurf behind the scenes.

So let’s talk about other applications. The greatest application ever written to date (and I’d totally date it) is Diablo 2. Followed closely by Warcraft 2 (and 3 was pretty good too!) If you beg to differ then you’re a white pants wearing loser and you should set yourself on fire and go jump off a cliff.

Love you, bye. x

Plants vs. Zombies

Oh my God, I am loving this game. It has to be one of the best games I’ve played in a long, long time. If you don’t already have it then I suggest you buy it from the Popcap Games website or get it off Steam. If you get the Steam version you can get achievements ;D

Both Steam and the Popcap website have demo versions available :)

Here are some awesome screenshots of the game so far!

The menu, look, I have the gold statue! :D

My awesome Zen Garden. I also have the mushroom one and the water one. Yay. My tree of wisdom is 129 ft tall now.

Check out his water ring ^_^ What a cutie!

NNNNNGGGGGG!!! Sunflower is the cutestest though.

I just wanted you to see the road cones ;D

Gurumin, what an awesome sound track!

I know I’ve posted about this game before. About how incredibly awesome it is, and how addictive and beautiful and cute and just how fun -_- But did I ever mention the soundtrack?

It’s got one of the best soundtracks I’ve heard in a while. Each song is suited to the levels it is played on perfectly. Plus it also has some songs in it too! Mario, Sonic, whatever, eat your heart out, Gurumin is far superior.

So what’s on it?

  • Ghostly Days
  • Guruguru Tonight
  • Jun Jun Jungle Gym
  • Friends
  • Secret Jungle Survival
  • Samurai Drill
  • Tomorrow Everyone Will Be Friends
  • Guruguru Magician Pon
  • Return To The Road We Came
  • Euro Beat Poco

Guruguru Tonight is the theme song. It’s not in English, but still dang funky.

My favourite songs have to be Secret Jungle Survival, Return to the Road We Came and Guruguru Magician Pon. Oh so funky ^_^

And where can you get it? The Gurumin website will let you download the mp3s for free! How fantabulous is that? Go over and get them. They are awesome.

Abandonware got broken

So I broke my site. No, not this one, the other one. That’s right, Bunny Abandonware broke. It broke two ways:

  1. It got broken because Google said it was arse, and I checked it, fixed it cleaned it and requested review from Google. Of course that takes a few weeks, so we’ll see about Google accepting it back again and stop telling people that the site is covered in malware (bugger it). This may not be considered a “break”, but it totally was.
  2. I upgraded to the latest wordpress version and totally pwnd my categorisation in it. Just take a look at the menu at www.bunnzy.org. Wow, that’s horrific.

Hopefully it all comes right. Brett said he’d take a look tonight *whew*.

Y’know, I upgraded this blog too, and it went smoothly. So it goes to show just how customised Bunny Abandonware is compared to your standard WordPress install.All-in-all, I’m really impressed with WordPress, it’s fantastic. Hats off to the community that works on it

I’m also doing some experimenting with Drupal, but we’ll see how that goes huh? ;)

P.S does anyone want to write some reviews for Bunny Abandonware?

[Edit]: It’s fixed, check it out! www.bunnzy.org
