Jeopardy Goes Portable!

27 12 2008

I just released v3.3.0.0 of Stu’s Double Jeopardy!  From now on, you will not need to be an administrator to install Jeopardy unless you want to install it into a restricted folder like C:\Program Files.  As long as your logon has access to write into the desired destination path, you can install and run Jeopardy!

What’s more, you can even tell the JeopardySetup.exe program to install to a USB memory stick and from that point on, your custom Jeopardy games can follow you wherever you go.  You’ll never have to install Stu’s Double Jeopardy onto another computer again.  Just plug in your USB stick, open the Jeopardy folder and run Jeopardy.exe – it couldn’t be simpler.

One of the biggest problems teachers have is the ability to install software in various computers around the school. Now they don’t have to!  You just need your trusty USB stick (but always remember, keep backups!  You don’t want to lose your stick or have it become corrupted).  Furthermore there’s a neat little application called SetupShortcut.exe in the Jeopardy folder that will drop a shortcut onto the Desktop of the PC you are using.

Try it out. There’s more information on the Downloads page.  And let me know what you think in the comments below.

NOTE: If you use the link from Download.com, just be sure it says v3.3, not v3.2. They usually take a few weeks to catch up.  The second download link will always get you the latest version.





Print this Jeopardy Flyer and Hand it Around!

26 10 2008

I talk to teachers pretty regularly and one thing they often ask me is “do you have something we can print out to show the others at school about Jeopardy?” – well, previously you had to print off separate articles from this site, but to make it a lot easier and a lot more professional, I’ve put together this great new two page flyer!

To carry on my “Parallel Divergence” theme, I decided to make the image on the left somewhat clever, and tested my photo editing skills using the GIMP at the same time.  I’m very pleased with the outcome.  Let me know what you think.

Download the complete 2-page flyer in PDF format by clicking here.

Please give the flyer some justice and print it on a color printer for full effect!
