Comment Spam

Unfortunately the site is receiving so much comment spam (at the last count it was up to 26000 spam comments in just a few months) that I’ve had to turn commenting off. Please do email me if you have thoughts about Functy, or would like me to turn commenting back on.
I’ll try to figure out a solution, but it’ll probably involve having to find a different way to host Wordpress on Sourceforge. Very frustrating! Thank you to ARJ though, for helpfully explaining how to clear all of the comments from the Wordpress database!

Interactive Functy function viewing

  • Posted on July 20, 2012 at 12:12 am

One of the obvious but neat consequences of having the new STL export functionality from Functy is that the generated models can be imported in to other things. One of these things… well, p3d.in provides a clever HTML5 in-browser model renderer, which means the models can now be rendered interactively directly into this site (or indeed any others). Check out this version of a ball made from string, generated as a couple of curve functions in Functy. Just click and drag to rotate the model. And if you like it, you can even print a copy in 3D!

The Web machine

It just goes to show how putting your application FreshMeat can really help (or it might have been GnomeFiles, I don’t have a way to tell). Almost as soon as it went online it was picked up and added to both the LinuxLinks and Softpedia software databases. The gears of the Web turning as always.

I’m pretty impressed, both by the speed of the software databases and the effect that just a small amount of effort can have. It also makes me a little nervous, given that  Functy is in no way a finished product. I might even have to start trying to fix some bugs!

Functy on freshmeat and GnomeFiles

  • Posted on May 4, 2009 at 9:35 pm

After a surprising amount of effort (by my lazy standards, at least), Functy now has a presence on both freshmeat and GnomeFiles.

Even if you’re not impressed by the program, please do leave ratings, comments and so on so that I know how it needs to be improved.

Are there any other sites like these that Functy could have a home on? If so, do let me know.
