Enchanted Age is the business name for a single hobby developer.

Enchanted Age Privacy Policy

Enchanted Age is just me, Jon.

I don't sell e-mail addresses for spam. I don't collect birthdates and correlate with home addresses to try to guess social security numbers. I generally don't do much but sometimes, when I have some free time, build a simple game and put it up on the Google Play Store.

How do I dependency?

So, if I were to build a brand new OS, not based on Linux kernel necessarily, what should packaging look like?

Look what I came across

In the distant past, I made an effort to get various virtual world vendors to attempt to interoperate, such that various virtual worlds could be interconnected.
That would have been cool! Unfortunately, the competetive landscape ended up not supporting such an effort.

Here's a copy of the IETF draft that I posted at the time:

Using the OpusFile library with Microsoft Visual Studio for Windows

The "opus" codec performs pretty well across a wide range of bit rates. When doing voice chat over the internet, or streaming music, or even including compressed music for a soundtrack for a game or other application, it is a pretty reasonable choice. Especially since it's free, as in beer!

What is this I don't even? Android Google sign-in hell.

I recently changed the password for my two non-work Google accounts. As part of that, my Android smartphone (a Samsung Galaxy II with Android 4.3) got signed out of all of its Google services, and started asking me to log in.

The link spam just keeps coming. What's wrong with the world?

I've turned off comments. The ratio of kudos or questions to advertising for Nike-branded male enhancement outlets has gone above 1:100, and Mollom doesn't seem to help with that anymore.

A reference for those milling ABS plastic enclosures

I had a hard time finding good feed and speed numbers for milling holes in plastic ABS enclosures ("project boxes.")
After a number of failed attempts, where the plastic would just melt and burr and become a mess, I found something that works for me, at least on the Desktop ShopBot at my local TechShop:

Making things

I make things. At work, I make software -- and, being super busy, I don't have much time to blog about all the cool stuff we do to grow IMVU.
During my "copious" spare time, I do things that aren't software. Like hardware.

What loading a home page should not look like

I like watching Anime. Netflix has a lot of good things, many of which come from the American importer/distributor Funimation. But Funimation has started not making everything they have available to Netflix; instead they have a subscription service specifically for their own site. This service is about as expensive as a Netflix streaming subscription (I think one dollar cheaper?) I'm afraid this is the future of streaming video, unless someone can come up with a $30/month all-high-quality-programming streaming video service. But I digress.
