Comment I suggest NetHack (Score 1) 329

After playing the game for some while I began to read the code and found it fun. It's not like the experience when you're reading the Lions' Commentary. Besides it's of moderate size -- a complete game showing how components add up to the whole, but you can also learn from small, fairly self-contained snippets controlling some aspect of the game mechanism or UI.

Comment Re:Internet Traffic down 10%. (Score 1) 110

The Internet is (or supposed to be) built upon the peer-to-peer principle anyway, so one may say all traffic is P2P.

Since when has the term P2P been twisted with the connotation of illegality I don't know. The word looks like another victim with the same fate as the term "hacker".

The reason computer chips are so small is computers don't eat much.
