[20:25] tarball.guru aims to be a "super simple tar cheat sheet".
[19:00] The LART man page. (In case you never heard the term before.)
[18:56] YouTube hopping had me find a Aliens Sentry Gun Simulator (video inside). Looks cool. I don't have an Amiga emulator installed on my computer (and I'm running on the last few MB of hard drive), but I'll have to try this another time.
[20:50] Interested in classic games? The Use of ASCII Graphics in Roguelikes is a paper on one of the oldest genres there is. (Too tired to read it now, but it looks promising.)
[20:33] The single drawback I see in having added the archive to my blog with both monthly collections and standalone entries is that whenever I mistype a word in an entry I'll have to correct the typo in four different places, including the main index and the RSS feed.
[20:26] I just remembered an article I read a few years ago about a game of Civilisation II that was played for a solid ten years and turned the world map into nothing short of a nuclear wasteland. I decided to dig this article up again and re-read it. And since it is pretty interesting, I'd like to share it. This is the original thread on reddit.
[13:56] Access to the internet is still pretty limited in Cuba, even though public WiFi seems to become more common. To get access to the latest movies, documentaries and newspapers among other things, people came up with El Paquete Semanal, or "The Weekly Package", a kind of sneakernet approach. The Guardian has more on this.
[07:34] The Cyberpunk Manifesto is 20 years old today.
[21:40] Here is a list of devices and systems capable of running Doom.
[21:22] Made some massive changes to gmb, both on the display side and on the code in the background. After some testing, debugging and still messing up, it should work now.
gmb now uses an archive by default. Also the output works without any bits of design now. As mentioned before I want to go completely without CSS.
[20:00] French politician Jean-Luc Melenchon gave a speech at two locations at once using a hologram.
[21:58] Binghamton University suggests to use an individuals heartbeat as a way of biometric authentication. Interesting idea, but since I watched this talk by starbug, I kind of lost what little belief I had in biometric authentication for good.
[22:42] Here's how Unix reacts to backspace.
[21:47] On CodeCombat you can learn the basics of programming by playing a game. A bit like SQL Island or VIM Adventures.
