Hey guys! Long time no see. I've actually been working on lots of stuff lately, but I've been lax at updating this.

Probably the two biggest things at the moment is that the site uses https (finally!) and that I now have a Quizbowl Schedule Generator in development. And hopefully there'll be lots more stuff to come!

My latest post about how big Northern Virginia is has been featured on Greater Greater Washington! Evidently I need to write more of these things.

After about a month and a half of work, I am pleased to unveil Harry's Online Puzzle Extravaganza! It features many new levels and a lot of adjustments to existing ones to make it the most awesome online puzzle on the planet! And I didn't even mention the many quality of life improvements and the new developer commentary.

December 12, 2014

I have gone over and tweaked and reworked quite a few Puzzle levels! I've also redone almost all of levels 17-23, some of which are completely new.

Be sure to stay on the lookout for more exciting changes over the next few weeks.

I have now started running my blog on Wordpress. It can still be found at its usual place, but it should now be much less buggy and much fancier!

June 17, 2014

There are now fancy-schmancy mouse-over drop-down menus! It's still a bit of a work in progress, but feedback is very welcome.

May 10, 2014

I am making some (much-needed) backend upgrades and cleanup to the site over the next week or two. If something breaks, please let me know.

March 5, 2014

I made some upgrades to the software that the site runs on. I think I fixed everything that broke, but there may still be a few fires that need to be put out. But hey, at least you can read this!

January 15, 2014

A minor change to Dominate: Press will only be shown to those participating in the game. Sorry observers.

January 2, 2014

Happy new year, everyone! In celebration of surviving yet another year, I have added a (long-needed) FAQ to the puzzle. In addition, I have been making a few cosmetic changes, so if things suddenly break, you'll know why.

By the way, if anyone has ideas for a less generic name for my puzzle, I am looking for suggestions. "Puzzle of Doom" doesn't really cut it for me anymore.

Weekly Puzzle #10 is up! I hope you have as much fun solving it as I did making it.

July 20, 2013

As you may have noticed, the weekly puzzles have been restarted! Hope you guys enjoy them, and now that I'm actually posting to the news page again, maybe it'll look like I've actually done stuff in the past five months (which I have!)

February 28, 2013

All things Diplomacy has been migrated to DOMINATE, and as such I have removed the Diplomacy section from the header and renamed DOMINATE to Diplomacy. The old Diplomacy site is still accessible at, though obviously it won't be maintained anymore.

February 16, 2013

After lots of going through old games, all of the (1200+) Diplomacy images are finally in .png format! This also means that every game will show up on DOMINATE.

February 15, 2013

So yeah, a lot of stuff has happened over the past couple months. The biggest is, of course, the addition of DOMINATE. I had started working on an online Diplomacy game manager way back in junior year of high school, but nothing really came of it. Over Winter break, I finally decided to tackle the project again, and it appears to be working splendidly! One game has already started, and another is filling up.

Also, on a more mundane note, logging in won't annoyingly redirect you to the home page anymore, which means that even fewer people will see these news posts!

December 30, 2012

I was looking through some old e-mails and I happened to find an old Diplomacy game! So now Diplomacy VII (which I didn't even know existed) is up on the site. Enjoy!

December 26, 2012

I have started to re-upload all the Diplomacy maps in .PNG format, mainly for readability and certain other reasons.

November 25, 2012

I've made some more cosmetic changes to the Diplomacy pages. It should be much easier to find your way around now. It also should look a lot less like it was designed by a 15-year old. Which is was.

November 22, 2012

I have updated the main Diplomacy page. It's a lot more compact and organised, and now contains even more unnecessary Javascript!

I have also finally (after three years!) gone around and fixed the dates of my Rants-turned-blog posts. If you're curious, there's actually seven or so Rants that did not make it to the blog (including one in which I prognosticate a Homecoming spirit week back in high school), which you can find at

November 21, 2012

Another update, actually! I have added an XML feed for new news posts. It's also a lot easier for me to make news posts, so I won't be nearly as behind as I usually am. Hopefully.
