More destruction of the solar system:

In my opinion, these are all turning out very beautifully.

Here's what the solar system would look like if we were to move the sun over by about 112 million miles (180 million km or 1.2 AUs).

This is what the solar system would look like if a sun sized spaceship were to just casually pass through.

Every asteroid known to man. I'll be rendering a time-lapse pretty soon.

@Hawkee I just noticed that most of my Processing applet demos aren't working. (eg.

@Hawkee I uploaded a new avatar quite awhile ago, and it hasn't changed. In fact, the avatar on my profile doesn't match the one in my account settings (which has the newer one).

@Hawkee I guess this is only inevitable. You should add a "report" button.

Alright, I made larger icons and removed the descriptions.

I'd like to make the banner javascript, but I'm having issues getting Processing to export working code.

I'm thinking about hiding the applets on the pages, and instead showing the gallery first (with maybe an expandable box containing the applet?)

More ideas/feedback/critiques appreciated.

I made a portfolio. Please give any feedback.

Hawkee, your notices are a bit funky now.

"Hawkee responded to a Status Update, Hawkee"

Clicking either the first or second Hawkee will bring me to your profile page (the second just having me scrolled down arbitrarily). I end up having to find the comment thread manually.

@Hawkee You should make comment threads linkable.

Another tutorial I wrote. An attempt to make linear simulations of ragdolls and fabrics as easy as possible to understand and follow. Let me know what you think!

@Hawkee Hawkee, your ideas remind me of Stack Overflow, esp. its reputation system.

@Hawkee OpenProcessing just mentioned Hawkee's Processing section on Twitter.

@Hawkee Hi Hawkee.

I posted a new Processing applet:

The "Try Demo" seems to not work. Processing was recently updated to 1.3, and I had similar embedding issues. Can you look inside the index file included in the zip, and copy the embedding code from there?

Also, when you do get it to work, mind changing the size to 640x480? :)
