Announcing the release of Squid Bridge 2 version 0.82
Squid Bridge is a puzzle game based on Hashiwokakero, a Japanese puzzle game about building bridges. It’s a mathematical constraint satisfaction puzzler, much like Sudoku and Minesweeper.
Version 0.82 is an Alpha build. It should be bug free but there are some polish items that still need to be implemented, such as a scoring system and nicer backgrounds for the menus and puzzle proper.
This is my first game using the
libGDX library, and so far it’s working quite well for me. There are a few things that took some figuring out, but that’s for another post.
Hope you enjoy, and please leave any suggestions for it in the comments section.

Time to get more out of your awesome new ultrabook!
If you, like me, got the 4gig version of the Lenovo Yoga 13, you should be planning on upgrading that to 8gig as soon as possible. While 4gig is certainly adequate, an 8gig stick is only ~$35 these days and replacing it is easy!
Here’s a short video of how to do it
VIDEO Has this ever happened to you?
What will I do without my check marks?!?
You (or someone like you with access to your computer) uninstalled a very important system font!
This font goes by the name of Segoe UI Symbol. Without it, the check marks and other icon decorations will not show up.
Install Segoe UI Symbol on your machine.
There are several ways to install fonts, the easiest being to right click on the font file and select install from the popup menu.
The font file itself is named “seguisym.ttf” and if you uninstalled it from your machine, you’ll probably have to borrow it from someone else’s.
I haven’t provided the font here due to licensing restrictions, but it comes with Windows 8, so anyone you know who has Windows 8 who has checkboxes will have the font in their system folder.
I used the Segoe UI Symbol font to render the “Oh No!!” text in the image. And then I drew some hasty and not aesthetically pleasing arrows.

Sliding, bumping, and wiggling!
And that completes the feature adds in the new version of Earl Spork, available here:

Hope you all enjoy it, and the rest of the entries for the
