Reverse HangMan

March 25th, 2012

I was tasked with completing a programming exercise from and I chose to do the reverse hangman game. I opted to expand on the challenge by adding a few features I thought would be cool, such as the computer’s ability to choose the most likely letter in a given dictionary.

I wrote it in Java and it uses a sort of artificial intelligence to play a reverse game of hangman. The player gives it a word and it will use a supplied dictionary.txt file to try to figure out the word in a specified number of attempts.

Crayfish Journal

April 15th, 2009

I recently became an amateur aquarist and began consuming all the knowledge I could about aquariums. Well, I came across a very cool animal called the crayfish and have been keeping one as a pet. I find that many people don’t know what crayfish are. Through my studies of astacology, I have learned much. Basically, they are little freshwater lobster monsters born in burning hell waters.

There are few things in life as satisfying as owning a pet. I already have a cat that pretends she doesn’t know I exist, so I needed another pet that barely needs to be cared for. Well, it turns out that ants are about the easiest pets in the world.
