Announcing Sprung

During the past couple of months I’ve been working on a little game called Sprung as an entry for the SwinGame 2010 competition. I believe that it’s come along quite nicely, and is probably the most bug-free piece of software that I’ve ever created (I reserve the right to withdraw claim if Sprung implodes). The game was created primarily with excellent free software tools, a full list of which can be found here. Sprung is free and works on Windows and Linux, so please download it and give it a try.

A quick note on rdoc.info and GitHub hooks

Firstly, lets get something straight: rdoc.info is an awesome place to host Ruby documentation. However, when I went to add a new project, the suggestion to add a post-commit hook containing “http://rdoc.info/projects/update” had me baffled. After wasting time following a red herring, I finally discovered that what I wanted was GitHub’s post-recieve hooks. Great! However, I could have saved myself a lot of time if rdoc.info was just a little clearer with its suggestion, perhaps providing a relevant link. If you have a project floating around the Internet, please consider taking a little more effort when explaining things and reduce the amount of assumed knowledge – users will really appreciate it!

UPDATE: rdoc.info has ears everywhere, and the new project page has been modified to address my little gripe. Yay!
