Unexpectedly useful things
Now that Ludum Dare is in judging phases, here are a few tools I found extremely useful…when I least expected it:
Fossil, and its Ticket Tracker
Fossil in a version control much like Subversion. In fact, it’s commands are nearly identical to SVN, yet has the advantage of a Distributed Revision Control (e.g. offline commit support). But every programmer knows Version Controls are important! No, I’m going to talk about a feature that I honestly didn’t expect any use out of: its built-in ticket support.
Ignoring the ugly HTML v1.0 visuals, this thing is just…clumsy. Nonetheless, I found myself using this over Google Task. Why? Well, it loads fast, and I can indicate if I did or didn’t feel like fixing things.
Garage Band…on the iPhone
This is iPhone’s piano. It’s very tiny.
This is iPhone, with orchestral strings, on auto-play.
Life became so much easier, since.
