A Fool and His Money

KascamI'm not really one for playing video games. I'm far too old and too busy to waste much time on such childish and trivial things. Frankly even when I was young I was more interested in learning about how computers worked than playing games on them. These days my interests are even further removed from such trivial pursuits. I view computers as little more than sophisticated typewriters with which to express my concerns and opinions.

And so it is that I find myself writing about video games, or rather a fairly recent phenomenon in the video games industry: in-app purchasing.

Construction of Symmetric Encryption




Construction of Symmetric Encryption

Prof. Wellman Fittiedean and Dr. Yano Idineken

Abstract


Many futurists would agree that, had it not been for Web services, the improvement of 802.11 mesh networks might never have occurred. In our research, we verify the study of fiber-optic cables, which embodies the unproven principles of e-voting technology. In order to accomplish this purpose, we concentrate our efforts on disproving that multi-processors and linked lists are mostly incompatible.

Return to Castle Wolfenstein on GNU/Linux

Like most iD titles, RTCW was ultimately released under the GPL, and is thus available as a GNU/Linux native game. Installing it under Gentoo is as simple as "emerge games-fps/rtcw", but unfortunately the game itself no longer works in modern GNU/Linux systems. This is only to be expected with proprietary software that becomes abandoned, and would affect the operation of that software on any OS, but naturally it doesn't have to be that way with Free Software, which can be revived at any time, even years later.

Video Fixer

Here's a script I wrote to "fix" videos I ripped from DVD/BD, where the rip is too big to fit on a FAT32 formatted flash drive (my Smart TV doesn't recognise NTFS or ext2/3/4 filesystems), has the wrong resolution/aspect, and/or possibly contains multiple language audio tracks I don't need (my Smart TV also doesn't play DTS audio).

Photo May Prove Assange Innocent

Assange Party

A photo published by the Mail Online, shows one of the two women who accused besieged Wikileaks spokesman Julian Assange of "rape", happily smiling with him at a party ... two days after he allegedly "raped" her. This casts even further doubt on what is already a highly dubious story, as it seems very unlikely that a rape victim would voluntarily attend a party with her would-be "rapist" at all, much less be smiling about it for the camera.

Although the woman, known only as "Woman A", has had her face obscured in the photo "for legal reasons", The Mail reveals she's 33 years old, which by a process of simple elimination means she must be Anna Ardin (who also goes by the pseudonym "Bernardin"), the 33 year-old militant feminist currently in hiding in the American-Israeli occupied West Bank, not her co-accuser, 28 year-old Sofia Wilén.
