o/` One Night in Bangkok o/`

Chess... I'm writing it in MUF and TCL of all things. It'll be a cool demonstration of the interaction of MUF and Trebuchet when I'm done. It sure is a lot more work than I originally imagined though. The checkmate testing routines turn out to be fairly subtle.

Thinking on the lyrics for "One Night in Bangkok" from Chess, I have to think that some of them apply to programmers as well as chess players:

    "It's a shame, it's a crime, it's really such a pity to be looking at the board, not looking at the city"


We psycoders can get a bit fixated on bits and bytes at times, to the exclusion of all else.

Anyhow, other than terrorizing pawns with en-passant and torturing rooks with castlings, I've also been giving a face-lift to belfry.com's Furry Comics Index. I hope folks like the new look. The vict^H^H^H^Hbeta-testers I ran it past felt it was better looking and more useful than the looooong vertical columns.

I like the new look, much easier to skim through and see what's new this way than by the columns.

    Clever! ^_^

    Was each link made from two pieces, or was there fill material inside that you removed? I'm having trouble seeing how to print these in a makerbot-compatible way (though I could just be overlooking…

    Nah. It'd just take a dissolvable support material and higher resolution. There are commercial 3d printers out there that can print ball bearing assemblies in one pass, fully assembled.

    Nice! ^_^ I was going to be flabbergasted if you were actually able to print it as a unit, but I guess that would take antigravity.

    I printed each piece individually and assembled them after some cleanup. I did print four segments at a time, though, unattached, in a 2x2 grid.
