I don't know why it took so long, but the AP just ran the story on Stacey Abshire on the wire. You have to love AP broadcast style: " To see Abshire's games, visit w-w-w.4-h-a-k-s.net-forward-slash4-h-a-k-s-forward-slash-hom e.h- t-m-l."

I'm going to copy and past the story because the link will rot.

W.Va. man creates popular online Sudoku puzzles
October 21, 2006 5:06 PM

NITRO, W.Va.
For Nitro resident Stacey Abshire, life is at least partly about fun and games.

By day, Abshire works as a Web designer for BrickStreet Insurance in Charleston. But at night, the 32-year-old develops online computer games available to millions of surfers across the Internet.

On his Web site, Abshire offers classic arcade games with a 21st Century twist.

He has a game called Badonkoid that is similar to the Atari game Breakout. He also has his own version of Sudoku, a popular numbers game.

Abshire's love for computers began when he was 9 years old. He began to study the languages used by programmers to create computer applications. He became fascinated with programming and carried computer magazines with him wherever he went.

After high school, Abshire studied programming at Pikeville College in Kentucky.

Abshire says it usually takes him more than a month to complete a single game.

Other games offered on his Web site include take-offs on Tetris, Kaboom and original puzzle games.

I'd like some of those games, but it says you need some sort of exotic hardware platform to run them... MacTavish, MacDougal... something like that.

Hey rick! Get with the program, and ditch that pitiful PC.. :-)

Actually, I would like to release these for the PC. If i get this other compiler (BlizBasic), I'll be able to release my games for both Mac and PC. Maybe I'll get it for Christmas :-)
