If you're really eagle-eyed, you may have spotted that I've had a new video, Savannah, up on YouTube for a few months, but I haven't mentioned it in this blog yet*. This video was coded in Processing 3 (Java), again, similarly to some of my earlier videos, but I tried to design some rather basic…Read more Savannah
It is about time I updated everyone on how things are going. My Dad is still in hospital: it's been eight weeks already.
