Some thoughts about approaches or how to win in Internet Backgammon

Sometimes I play Internet Backgammon when I’m on Windows box (can be found under Start->Programs->Games in a standard Windows installation). I haven’t ever played the game in offline nor even knew its rules, but after a few tries found the game is interesting – mostly due to the fact you play over internet with live people, not with the computer – thus it could be quite hard to prognose turns of opponent.

just few words

1.5 months ago, 6 weeks or 42 days. I haven’t updated my simple blog since that time.

I haven’t a time to deal with my CakePHP projects, but got a pretty nice experience with other things.

Currently I work with Propel based custom framework with extensive usage of jQuery which I found very nice and going to use with CakePHP (when I have a time of course :) ).

Propel is very handy thing as well, it plays role of database communication layer, in other words Propel is ‘model’ component of a framework.

Well, I’m new to these things and sometimes spend a lot of time to figure simple things, but I’m sure when say “Propel rocks! jQuery rocks!” :)
