Table-top Games / Farting Cows And The End Of The World
« Last post by Dragon on November 17, 2019, 03:43:27 »
I'm proud to say that I've finally published a boardgame. I've been playing games since I was a kid and playing around with game ideas and designs for just as long. This year I came across The Game Crafter and finally found a way to get a quality product made as an independent designer.

Farting Cows And The End Of The World is fun, strategic, and easy to play. It's great for 2 to 4 players and with a play time of 30 minutes for two-players, it can even fit into a lunch break at work.

Also, for those supporters of local and America products, it was designed and made in the USA! If you live in Pinellas County, FL, I might even be available for game demos.

Farting Cows And The End Of The World

The theme for the game:

The community is concerned about all the gas building up around the cows. Eventually it might explode! Move your cows to an open pasture where they can air out their farts before they kill us all!

It had been a while since I've done any photo purging since we've been using Google Photos to store new pictures, but I wanted to get back to my old storage drives. I was going through some old photos recently and gthumb was being slow. My wife came in and was making some suggestions to be helpful and we talked some about what I was looking to do. My primary concern being that it needed to group photos using the folder structure of the native operating system rather than relying solely on database records that wouldn't be recognized on another computer without the same program.

While I continued to do some cleanup, my wife discovered a program called Digikam, which is an open source photo management tool that has a Duplicate finder along with other tools. I got it installed and although it still took a while to search through all the photos that I have, the Duplicates feature is very nice. Preview images of the photos along with the path to the photos are visible during the process. I have seen in other programs where you could select something like "Delete all except one" which I have NOT yet seen in Digikam, but aside from that, I've found it to be quite user friendly.

Changing the Album that a photo was in and renaming the photos does so on the native file structure. There is also a SQLite Database that stores information locally about the images. Options to update metadata on the actual files does exist, although it seems to be discouraged since it slows things down. Considering that I wanted to keep things useful outside of this application as much as possible, having a little slower response in order to have the metadata stored on the actual photo files seems like a good trade, although I haven't yet tried updating any metadata there.

It's still out there... in case you want to check it out yourself. Here's another little composition I've created... an adjustment to my old one.

Yeah, those look cool. Are they able to snap in anywhere to drive around or just floating there for still shots?
