SpongeBob Volleyball still isnt fixed. Looks
like this is going to be harder to fix than I thought. I updated the video
games page with info about v04. Also, I added a new site to the links
section; it's pretty good, so you should probably check it out...
so go check it out. Why are you still reading this! You should be looking
at the links section!
I'm back home. That was a fun-filled weekend. I have some good news and
some bad news. The good news is that according to the new poll, I'm more
popular of a SpongeBob character than Mr. Krabs. The bad news is that...
well there is no bad news. The real update for today is v04 of SpongeBob
Volleyball. I finally added AI so theres a 1-player mode. Right now theres
a problem with it that makes player 1 invincible (go figure), but I'll
fix it for v05 which should be done by tomarrow. I'll update the video
games page with it tomarrow. Here's the link
to download v04.
WOW Falco's first post!!! cmonkeys visiting moon today. he, marshall,
vulture, doombringer, and myself are all at a lan party. We created a
new poll today...i think i know who will be voted for the most, if u know
what I mean ;-) hopefully i'll be able to post agian some time.
I was out shopping the other day and I think I saw the weirdest SpongeBob
merchandise item, it was a Sun Shade. You know those things that you put
in the windshield of your car to keep it from getting too hot? It had
a giant SpongeBob on the front which kind of scared me the first time
I saw it. There is an outrageous amount of SpongeBob Merchandise, and
our Merchandise section doesn't even scratch the surface. I just checked
on the SpongeBob SquareBoard and they have a list that is quite long,
but is not even complete. Check it out here. Cmonkey will not be available Friday till
Sunday due to a little vacation he is taking to visit some old friends.
I'll try and find some other interesting stuff to update with while he
I finally updated the Video Games page. I added a section for SpongeBob
Volleyball, and reorganized the rest. I'm still typing up the AI, so it
should be done by the end of the week.
Falco contributed a few new merchandise items for today. I'm still working
on updating the game. I'm also thinking about adding online play to it.
That might not happen though.
Another update of SpongeBob Volleyball.
This is Version .03. Scoring is fixed, so now it graphically shows
what score each player has. Also, its a lot easier to use, for all you
non-computer-literate people. Instead of having to extract the files and
then run the game, now all you have to do is double-click on the downloaded
file, and it automatically starts. I'm going to try to add AI next. I
hope it doesn't come to life and attempt to take over the world. (watch
I finally updated SpongeBob Volleyball. Now, its a 2-player game. I haven't
finished the AI yet, so there's no single player mode right now. I'll
add it later this week hopefully. Some other changes are more realistic
physics and fewer bugs. The game should also run faster now on old computers.
It's 1.78 Mb, and you can download it here.
In other news, a lot of you must have really interesting toenails (check
the poll over to the left).
Hey Compbrain, how about borrowing my collection of 5 SpongeBob DVDs
:-p. I'm still working on an update to the volleyball game. This weekend,
I'm going to be busy, but I'll have plenty of time to finish it during
It as just occured to me the irony of me and Spongezone. I have seen
a grand total of four and a half episodes of SpongeBob. A few chatters
honestly did not belive me when I gave them such information. I guess
my real role here is technical stuff. You might have heard rumors around
the site about new zone content soon, so that is my primary focus right
now. More about the new stuff when it gets finished.
I added a new poll for the first birthday. Also, Falco found a really
interesting letter to the editor in a local newspaper, so we both wrote
a response to it. Here is the article, followed by both of our responses.
Show Some Respect - by Stevie Williams
SpongeBob SquarePants is not given the full respect he deserves. Sometimes
he gets compared to cartoons like Scooby Doo and the Power Puff Girls.
Scooby Doo, as well as the Power Puff Girls, promotes violence. SpongeBob
would never do a thing like that. The Power Puff Girls skip school. They
are not responsible. SpongeBob SquarePants, on the other hand, has a job
at the Krusty Krab that he goes to every day. Scooby Doo eats a lot of
Scooby snacks, which aren't healthy. SpongeBob eats healthy food, and
not a lot of it. He is a character that can tell kids who get the water
squeezed out of them to soak it back up. SpongeBob is all around a happy,
creative and educational sponge. When SpongeBob loses, he never gets mad
and goes after someone, unlike the Power Puff Girls. SpongeBob dresses
appropriately for all ages. He dresses ready to work. The Power Puff Girls,
on the other hand, wear short dresses while fighting. Power Puff Girls
always have mad expressions on their faces. SpongeBob is always giggling
and smiling while flipping patties. SpongeBob is the model for all people.
He is reliable, creative and helpful.
My response: I completely disagree with Stevie Williams. First
of all, SpongeBob is given the full respect he deserves. SpongeBob is
currently the most watched cartoon in America by a huge margin. Saying
that Scooby Doo and The PowerPuff Girls promote violence is like saying
that a policeman promotes violence. They are both fighting evil-doers.
The Powerpuff girls skip school to save the world from certain destruction,
while SpongeBob once skipped work to play in a carnival of hooks. I've
never seen the Nutritional information of a Scooby Snack, but I'm sure
that Mr. Williams hasn't either. SpongeBob commonly eats fast food like
a Krabby Patty. SpongeBob commits morally objectionable deeds many times
in many episodes. In one episode, he goes on a "panty raid" with his best
friend and his boss. In my opinion, no fictional character should be a
Falco's response: OWW Stevie...oww stevie...how i wish i knew
what u were talking about. first of all, i wouldnt say spongebob is educational...*ie
falied driving school numerous times etc etc....Second, "spongebob never
gets mad" WRONG-O. Any one ever seen an episode entitled rock bottom???
*TARTER SAUCE! heck speaking of tarter sauce, remember "robot krabs"?
Our favorite sponge went crazy and sprayed mr krabs with tarter sauce..."spongebob
dresses appropriately for a all ages" hmmmm....lets remember...."nature
sponge"? *cough* no clothes...but really stevie, hes a cartoon, all of
this stuff is ok... i agree with cmonkey here that spongebob shouldnt
be worshipped as a role model...or worse....*cough* www.churchofspongebob.com
*cough*...so in conclusion, SPONGEBOB IS GOOD HUMOR, ENJOY IT !!!!
I think Daylight savings time had some wierd effect on me, because I
forget Sponge Zone's first birthday. So, Happy Belated Birthday to Sponge
Zone! I wrote the complete
history of Sponge Zone today. It has everything you
wanted to know, and probably a lot that you didn't, about Sponge Zone.
Its a tale full of defeat, triumph, and a whole lot of spongeyness. Just
I forget about the letter section because of the whole Plankton Zone
shenanigan on April 1st, so I added 3 more letters today. I'm still working
on the AI for the volleyball game, hopefully it'll be done tomarrow.
Well, I'm still working on the Volleyball game. I got the scores mostly
finished, but making the AI is really difficult. I tried a few different
methods, but I'm going to end up having to hand code the AI for the game.
It could take a bit longer. I'll try to finish it for tomarrow.
How did you like that April fools joke? Falco and I had something big
planned, but it fell apart. I didn't get the new version of the game up
today, but expect it on Wednesday.

What that means in English:
I don't own SpongeBob. I am not SpongeBob. I did not make SpongeBob. I am just
a fan with a website. If you want to say "I love your show", then email somebody
at www.nick.com. You won't believe how many people email me thinking that I'm
SpongeBob, or that I made the show. So, theres the truth, enjoy it.
