New Ajax Fetching

2016-12-05

Out with the old in with the new? While lazily googling for a simple ajax one liner for a toy project I kept getting jquery results. Thanks for that. Actually had to remember the "xmlhttprequest" garble which turned up the default mdn page which gave...


Dull Fires

2016-12-03

I've never really built a deck before so starting one now was a bit of a challenge. I'd say I've got medium knowledge of the deep rules and synergies but whenever I read up on cards I seem to learn something new. Or a new combo trick I hadn't conside...

Secret Parent Club

2016-11-08
