Now that the 2020 edition of A Book About Hype was published, what to do about those templates? Well, initially, the plan was to stop creating them. Instead, energy was focused on the Widgets app. But after a recent visit to the Hype forums, it looks like detecting the device orientation was an issue. That’s an easy fix… right? That should be an easy template to make… right?!
Creating websites, it’s a strange profession. The Internet has matured to the point where people rarely get excited about a new website launch. It seems best you can hope for is to keep the complaints to a minimum. The projects can be extremely expensive and time consuming too. Is Hype a better way to build a website? While working on A Book About Hype, this was a question I intended to answer.
First, congratulations to SpaceX on their successful Falcon-9 “Demo-2” launch. Human Spaceflight returns to America. Not since 2011 has this occurred. It’s been a similar length of time since a physical book has been available from Photics. Now that changes. A Book About Hype is available at Lulu.com.

Many years ago, back in the Guild Wars days, there used to be a cute jigsaw puzzle game on this website. Sadly, it was based in Flash — and Flash is dead. As time passed, I had forgotten about the game… both Guild Wars and the jigsaw puzzle. But with Hype 4’s new vector features, the jigsaw has returned. That’s what this weeks free Tumult Hype template is about. Hype is now powerful enough to create HTML5 based jigsaw puzzles.
