New Theme

I finally updated the theme on my blog. Please take a look and try various things (in different browsers, if possible) and report any bugs in the comments section. Suggestions welcome, as well. Demands can go elsewhere… (you know who you are!) 🙂 This theme isn’t 100% done, but it’s functional and I wanted to… Continue reading New Theme

Blogging with images and WordPress

One things that WordPress is sorely missing is basic image handling. Blogging with images should be fast. Previously, I had gone as far as writing a script that would take all images in a directory, resize them, create thumbnails, and output the required html that I would then paste into the editor. Before that, I… Continue reading Blogging with images and WordPress

Free Games and Entertainment

UFO2000 So for the last month or so… some friends (one, in particular) have been nagging me to get UFO 2000 to work. If you’re not familiar with XCOM: UFO Defence or XCOM: Terror From the Deep, they’re really awesome turn-based strategy/simulation games originally released by Microprose in 1993, for the PC.

(Scared gamers making “the switch”) JS Debugger Venkman for Firefox 1.5 (normally has dependency issues for modern versions) Made a small change to my blog. You now have to answer an incredibly difficult skill testing question when making… Continue reading jibber jabber


Yes, that was a long time between posts. I’ve been… busy (killing time). I haven’t felt so motivated to bother doing the alt-tab mouse input thing in Metacity (the official window manager for GNOME), as other things which seem to eclipse it are being developed: Gimmie (which looks awesome!) AIGLX (Redhat) XGL (Novel) (very nice… Continue reading Untitled

Library Books

Coming off of a nice family dinner very satiated, so I’m in a good position to do an update. I upgraded to WordPress 2.0 a while ago, but this is my first post since. Quite nice, from the admin side of things. 🙂 It’s even got a WYSIWYG editor, and a nice dialogue for inserting… Continue reading Library Books
