Subject: Featured Games: Small Block Builder & Triple Six!
By: Jibba Jabba

Today's blog features 2 awesome games coded by Bluegrams.
You can download the games from these 2 links:
Small Block Builder & Triple Six!
I've just played both these games and the game play is spot on and the GUI's leave nothing to the imagination. Bluegrams helps the user drill straight into the game play by providing clear and easy to follow in game instructions.Small Block Builder even provides a callable "How To" help screen! Nice - help the user play your games.

Bluegrams has been using Small Basic for a few monthsand already has published his first 2 games. Well done!
Both these games are great demonstrations of what can be done with Small Basic and thanks to Bluegrams it shows just how fast you can learn to code with Small Basic.

GADGET File Extension

Small program that runs within the Windows Vista or Windows 7 sidebar; stores several Web-based files in a Zip archive format; may include .HTML.CSS.JS files, as well as other Web files; used for small programs such as news feeds, search tools, system utilities, and small games.

Other types of gadgets include Web gadgets and SideShow gadgets. Web gadgets can be placed on Web pages, while SideShow gadgets run on mobile phones, digital picture frames, and other devices.
If you install a user-level Windows gadget, the installation files are placed in the following directory:
[user]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets\
The default Windows gadgets are installed to the following directories:
C:\Program Files\Windows Sidebar\Shared Gadgets\
C:\Program Files\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets\
Formerly, gadgets could be downloaded from the Windows Live Gallery, but Microsoft discontinued the gallery service.
NOTE: Since GADGET files are stored in a .ZIP format, you can rename their file extension to ".zip" and open them with any Zip-compatible decompression utility.
Program(s) that open .GADGET files

Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS)

BLAS (Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms) is a specification that prescribes a set of low-level routines for performing common linear algebra operations such as vectoraddition, scalar multiplication, dot products, linear combinations, and matrix multiplication. They are the de facto standard low-level routines for linear algebra libraries; the routines have bindings for both C and Fortran. Although the BLAS specification is general, BLAS implementations are often optimized for speed on a particular machine, so using them can bring substantial performance benefits. BLAS implementations will take advantage of special floating point hardware such as vector registers or SIMD instructions.
It originated as a Fortran library in 1979[1] and its interface was standardized by the BLAS Technical (BLAST) Forum, whose latest BLAS report can be found on the Netlib website. This Fortran library is known as the reference implementation (sometimes confusingly referred to as the BLAS library) and is not optimized for speed.
Most libraries that offer linear algebra routines conform to the BLAS interface, allowing library users to develop programs that are agnostic of the BLAS library being used. Examples of such libraries include: AMD Core Math Library (ACML), ATLASIntel Math Kernel Library (MKL), and OpenBLAS. ACML is no longer supported.[2] MKL is a freeware[3] and proprietary[4] vendor library optimized for x86 and x86-64 with a performance emphasis on Intel processors.[5] OpenBLAS is an open-source library that is hand-optimized for many of the popular architectures. ATLAS is a portable library that automatically optimizes itself for an arbitrary architecture. The LINPACK benchmarks rely heavily on the BLAS routine gemm for its performance measurements.
Much numerical software uses BLAS-compatible libraries to do linear algebra computations, including ArmadilloLAPACKLINPACKGNU OctaveMathematica,[6] MATLAB,[7]NumPy,[8] and R.
