MINERVA: Episodic, Single-Player Half-Life 2

Yeah, so you've looked behind the curtain, only to discover the whole world is a carefully manufactured lie. But to what ends?

Well, I'm Adam Foster, and these are my experiments in Half-Life 2 mapping!

Auditory Stimuli -

Joseph 'ZhayTee' Toscano wishes to inform you all that the soundtrack for MINERVA is now available for download from its own fancy, dedicated page. Yes, it was already available separately, but this is the definitive soundtrack release, with fully tagged MP3s for immediate incorporation into your electronical auditory archives.

May it become your own, official soundtrack for exploring (and exploding) mysterious islands, desolate bunkers and horrifying physical research establishments.

Or going to the supermarket, your choice.

Red Star in Orbit

Hello, you either have Javascript turned off or an old version of Macromedia's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player.

Convinced that Horizon, the BBC's flagship science series, is these days is a pale shadow of its former self - I went Googling for a particular set of episodes I remembered as being utterly brilliant.

Would Red Star in Orbit, which captivated a ten-year-old version of myself so many years ago, stand up today?

Good news, it's still utterly brilliant. First episode here!

I've also ... mysteriously acquired the other two episodes, and they're even better. And it's strange how much I remembered of television programmes I watched just once, almost twenty years ago...

I never could get the hang of Thursdays -

So, in some alternate universe, our dear Perseus is just about ready to take his first steps on to the cold, uninviting shores of a particular island located somewhere in the Baltic Sea.

Alas, we can't be there to see him (at least, not in a non-virtual manner), but a faint echo from a long-forgotten bureaucratic system has unearthed another piece of an alternative, impossible history. Fortunately for us all, I've converted it into a more accessible format.


If anyone were to take a photo of themselves while standing on a windswept Baltic shore today, I'd be very impressed. Especially if a helicopter has dropped them there. Just remember: get up on the beach, turn right, and RUN!

Expect a giant Flickr update sooner or later...

Edit 2009-10-02: Finally, photos! And videos, assuming Flickr decided to actually work.

Welcome to the nano-blogging revolution -

I found Twitter's message length restrictions too much of a constraint, so I began re-implementing its systems from scratch. At just fourteen characters per twit, this is a whole order of magnitude better than yesterday's lesser micro-blogging platforms.

Get ready for Twit - a bright new dawn in the world of the interwebs!

It may surprise you that beer was involved in the conception, design and implementation phases of this wondrous project.

Edit 2009-09-06: Yes, I got distracted from adding new features to Twit. Have some other programmerations to play with instead...
