Just another reminder that we are still in a week-long practice mode, ironing out the kinks before beginning the season in earnest next monday. So don’t put too much stock in your stats for the week, they are not entirely accurate. Thanks to all of you that have provided me with valuable feedback. I am [...]
I had a little bit of a disaster over the weekend and had to change my webhost. While the transfer seems to have gone smoothly in general, BrainBall now seems to be a little buggy.. so today’s data will likely be tossed. I hope to get this figured out today and have things back on [...]

No, I haven’t abandoned BrainBall again … I just got sidetracked. It has been hard to gather momentum as I have a lot of other things I need to work on and it’s tough to churn out a new season every month right now since all my previous work has been rendered useless by the [...]
The object of this game is to associate colors with specific strings of characters, and using this information, correctly identify the color for a given string. One by one, you will be provided with a target string. At first, you will have no idea which color it represents, so you will have to guess. When [...]
OK, well I just made some changes and played the game through twice and it seemed to work fine, so I am going to assume it’s OK unless I hear otherwise. So please let me know if you encounter one of the problems: a) the instructions page comes up blank or b) one of the [...]
This is a interesting game of memory. You will be presented with a series of pieces, each of which is labeled with a number. This number indicates how long the piece will remain active, in seconds. When you are presented with a piece, you can drag it and place it into any one of the [...]
I have decided to begin the BrainBall season a little early as I will not be around later tonight to do it then. So this first day will actually run a day and a half, beginning Sunday afternoon and running until day #2 begins at 2am EDT. Please let me know ASAP if you encounter [...]
