Bumuckl.com - development & design since 2005Bumuckl is my name. And I am a tech addict. And a passionate geek. And an enthusiastic coder. Now and again a hacker. Sometimes a designer. I am devoted to Lua. I love Apple and Mac OS. I used to be active in the PSP Hacking Scene. Now I waste my time with webdevelopment. And maybe more. Actually I dabble into everything. But just call me coder.
BermudaOSK is a virtual keyboard, actually developed for Bermuda CS 9 (before version 9, the FuzzieBoard by Fuzzie360 has been used) and Dow! - Develop on the go, programmed in LUA and meant as a LUA Library for developers.
BermudaOSK has lots of advantages, not just towards the original SonyOSK, but also towards the other (LUA) OSK's:
- it is very fast and very easy to use
- does not just contain simple symbols, but also lots of special symbols (small letters, capital letters, special symbols, numbers, ...)
- very easy to implement into your own script
- got a nice design(which can be changed manually)
PSPSLX (or PSPSource.de Lexicon Portable) is the portable homebrew version of the PSPSource.de PSP Lexicon. It contains over 500 entries containing information about the PSP. PSPSLX comes along with a nice GUI designed by Basti93 (http://sebastianhomeier.de), is very easy to use and quite powerful. You can browse through all the lexicon-entries, view every entry, whose text is wrapped by a self-written text-wrapper, and view specific pictures related to the entry. The lexicon itself is read and parsed by a self-written powerful (I'd carefully say) XML-Parser, which is the powerful search engine of the application itself. To keep sure you always have the latest version of the lexicon you can update the database and the pictures anytime you want via a Wifi-Update!
My success in the previous competition raised my motivation even further. In spring 2008 I decided to participate in the Neoflash Spring Coding Competition 2008 not just with one application, but with two. And I won with both of them.
I became 1. place in the PSP app division with my homebrew "Dow! 0.2 - Develop on the go" and 10. place in the PSP game division with my homebrew game "Motion Pong 0.2". So I won $300 cash and was allowed to choose one prize out of the prize list.
There are a lot of people I would like to thank, because they supported me and helped me a lot: Thanks to Pr0nt0, FloXxX, homj, Joshi, Shoesy, Splitti, Dr. Neo, and many more for supporting me. Please forgive me if I forgot to mention somebody...Great thx to u as well!
During my time as a homebrew developer in the PSP scene I participated in some coding competitions. Neoflash Summer Coding Competiton 2007 was the first one I took part in, and I was surprisingly successful. I participated with my homebrew drawing application called "Bermuda CS" version 7 and became 3rd.
I couldn't believe it when I saw the results. The third place was rewarded with $100 cash. This, and all the honor bestowed to me by the homebrew community was enough to encourage me to participate another time!
