I’m coming off my Christmas break, but oddly I haven’t felt like blogging at all. I shall provide random bullet points and call it “a post”.
- Use the scrollwheel on the Gnome taskbar to flip through all your windows quickly.
- Glipper solves all the annoyances I’ve had with copy and paste on Linux.
- Gens works on Linux and plays all my old Sonic games quite nicely. It even has a nice GUI.
- “apt-get install gweled” for a nice Diamond Mine clone
- Zelda Classic brings The Legend of Zelda 1 to PC, no emulator required. It features a quest editor and a Linux version.
- MoM is an interesting half-free MMORPG, apparently programmed by just one guy.
- Ted Dekker’s Circle trillogy rocks, as do P. G. Wodehouse’s many short stories.
- OICCC is upon us once more. It has inspired me to brush up on my C skills and write a program that prints its own source code. It seems like it would be possible to create a recursive program that changes it’s source, recompiles, executes the new program and exits. This prospect excites me, though I can’t think of any practical reason for doing it.
- I thought this was pretty funny.
