While going through the Impact JS Pong tutorial I noticed that when adding a collision layer Dominic Szablewski added a tileset from the media folder called "media/collisiontiles-48x48.png". I tried looking up this problem to see why I didn't have this image.
I found this forum post from a year ago that said in the new style of Impact JS the collision tiles image had 1) been moved to lib/weltmeister and 2) been renamed to collisiontiles-64.png and 3) a new …
The Programmers section on Stack Exchange offers a weekly newsletter featuring the weekly top new questions. It's a great newsletter for students/new programmers because the questions tend to focus on best practices, practical advice, and better understanding programming languages. (In my opinion, the Programmers section differs from StackOverflow in this regard.)
The default "Your Site" title is located in the upper left column in your Orchard Admin Dashboard.

Today I noticed that Facebook had pushed out a redesign of their layout and cover photo. Altough my cover photo needed only marginal adjustment, I thought it'd be a good opportunity to post templates of the cover photo's dimensions as pngs and psds. Here are a few different ways to view facebook's cover -which is 851px x 315px, btw.
Here are the psd's:
Here are the png's: (You …

Problem: Client's Drupal Site suddenly changes into a WordPress site.
The client didn't know exactly what happened, but his site went from being a great Drupal site to an empty WordPress installation. (I'm paraphrasing what Caleb, the former web dev, said about the situation)
The problem with my expectations (that the client bought the $13 custom url mapping to his own domain) is that he didn't. He didn't know what problem or accidental click had taken …

By disabling, then re-enabling the Vandelay Tag Cloud, I was able to remove a recently-delete tag from appearing in the tag cloud on my website (in my AsideSecond zone on Orchard).
I will be making plenty of mistakes, so this list will be continously updated.
Maybe this post will help if you're experimenting with making games in Akihabara too.
In my bundle-credits.js, I missed a comma on the end of a line for one of the strings. In bundle-credits.js, every single line -except for the very last line, needs a comma.
(Note, do not use a comma on the very last group of code before the end of the file. -By group I mean like, addFont: …
I had some trouble getting started with Netduino Plus and VS 2012, but I found a few forum posts that answered my questions.
Visual Studio 2012 didn't have the specific Netduino templates for starting a project underneath the Micro Framework option. Turns out, all you have to do is add a refernce to 2 file from Secret Labs.
