A self-confessed geek, Jason Oakley was born in NSW, Australia in 1971 and has been on the internet since around 1993.
Jason started on the internet with a 28.8k modem and an expensive $5/hr account at OzEmail ISP (now pwned by iiNet).
He’s been a member of the Efnet IRC community since joining the Internet and has rarely been offline. As of 2006 he hardly goes on IRC at all, mostly living on Twitter and on Facebook.
Programming is one of his loves and he prides himself in having done some programming in many languages (some you may call scripting) such as: C, Perl, PHP, Bash among others. He wrote a popular game called “Quirl” for the Palm OS. Later, an updated version named “Quirl:Christmas Edition” was created, using the same gameplay but with Christmas graphics and sound effects along with a Christmas tune in the background.
In the 2000s, he dabbled in PHP from time to time and has written a plugin for the blog application WordPress. The plugin is called “RndImgDisplayer” and displays random images in the WordPress sidebar, automatically calculating width, height and supplying an Alt tag (or alternatively, for Firefox plain text under the image).
He also wrote an Arkanoid clone for the VZ200/VZ300 computers called “Arkaball” in Small C.
In 2013, he developed the popular Minecraft game plugin called “Insanity Run” in Java. This is a Temple Run themed game based inside the Minecraft world. It has had over 10,700 downloads (as of August 2017).
In 2015, he gained an awesome Work-From-Home job fighting spam on the internet.
In 2017 he began developing clock faces and a game for the Fitbit OS devices. They are quite popular and have been downloaded by thousands of people.
2020 brought on a desire for more development and this resulted in Corey Coolbrew for the Sinclair Spectrum designed using the Multi-Platform Arcade Game Designer. It is a part of the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality.
September, 2020 brought more desire for development which resulted in “Toxic Frenzy” written in 6502 Assembly for the Commodore 64. All graphics and code by Jason Oakley with help from OldSkoolCoder and the music was created by Mike Richmond:
