here be dragons…


Almost forgot to post about this. I recently competed in js1k. Since I didn’t have much time for extra-curricular activities this past semester, I was in a rush to submit a demo. Just modified and minified the illusory cones script. You can view the final product here. You can also take a look at my previous entries here and here.
