The webcast they are talking about doesn't appear on there. I'll make sure Dan or Brian get a link in here, or information on when it will be available (if its a future article). I'll also see if they know what's happening on the half life stuff.
As for the <sarcasm> - it may seem very simple and not worth it to you, but the point of Coding4Fun is to encourage small beginner, hobbyist developers to be interested in coding. If someone from that audience sees the code and gets inspired to modify it to
do something else then our job is done.
