My name is Benjamin Dumke-von der Ehe. I am Stack Overflow Valued Associate #00007, which is just a confusing way of saying that I work as a developer for Stack Exchange.

I am @balpha on Twitter. My blog's "about" page explains the origin of my user name.

I am the creator of Unicornify, the service that gives you these lovable creatures:

I also created Lyfe, a small library adding yield-based generators to JavaScript, and Not a Real Question, a little game that's played with data from various Stack Exchange sites.

I sometimes have a strange sense of humor, but I also like to explain things I fix, break, care about, or come up with.

@Sklivvz Nah, I consider this a code dump, don't really want to maintain it as an open-source project. I'll make it MIT-licensed as soon as I get permission, though (that's just a formality), so fork away afterwards.

@AndrewT. I hand-drew everything, so I don't assume licensing would be an issue. I'll look if I can find a good place to keep the animations.

I'll throw the core game logic wrapped in a console app onto Github when it's over (i.e. just the pure game, without voting, animation, etc.; decoupling the latter into a standalone thing would be too much work for a little fun thing).
