We're into the fourth (fifth?!) day of Summer, here in our miserably dreary and rainy UK.
I gotta be honest. I'm not doing great.


The heat has made my head fluid all the more viscous, and the swirling is incredibly obvious. Even walking around the house is currently a wave-filled danger-zone.
I'm trying my best to sit and relax, to chill, and take things easy. But concentrating on coding is far from my mind right now, and all I can think about is drinking another gallon of ice-cold water in a desperate attempt to keep myself hydrated.

I don't think there's going to be much coding done, this week.
Driggle da Whoop Whoop certainly hasn't gotten any more complete than it was at the weekend.
There's still no enemies, still no gameplay.
Just a weird sponge-like creature sitting happily in a cold cold dungeon, where he's cold and it's colder around him.
Oh, to be a fictional pixelated character right now!


So I awoke at half three in the morning, sweating cobs. (That might be far too regional a phrase.. .. Sweating a lot!!)
I sat up in bed, grabbed my fifty eight pint of water for the day, and did what any sane person would do.
I farted about with maths, scaling, rotations and more to generate a printable little box.

I've actually had "box_template.png" sat on my hard drive since September 2021, which is ludicrous, but in order to get everything lined up I had to do a myriad of tests and scalings and all sorts.
Last night was the night!
Couldn't focus on anything else whatsoever, so got my box working.
.. But I'm still not 100% satisfied with the outcome. There's a slight gap at the top, for starters.
I think I might also need to add an alternative version with the sides being an extension of the front image, rather than a repeat of that image.
That oughta be doable, but there's even more maths'ing involved to get that working the way I'd like.

Note : Doesn't work all that great when printed to paper. Please print to something slightly sturdier
