I can't remember, but it is likely I came here for the same reason. I wrote a patch for wm back then that added scale and tile options for the background, which was accepted (but rewritten). I have been using it for my vnc sessions for a long time. I get good response time with it. Still one of my favorite window managers, and I really like the color scheme.
Kind of like the tv shows. Nowhere Man lasted only 1 season, years ago, but that was still 22 episodes. There are shows today that get canceled after 3 episodes. Perhaps they should be left out there a little longer to give them a chance to build public interest. I see this in a lot of things, tech, tv, movies, for example.
We are using http://www.groundworkopensource.com/ for our monitoring. It is working pretty well, and we can use existing Nagios scripts with it.
Reminds me of a book by John De Chancie, one of the Castle books. In it, Gene is dumped in a world with InnerVoice (tm), which is a virus which monitors your endocrine system and whatnot for "guilty" feelings (such as raised heart rate, sweating, stuff like that). If you feel guilty, it starts giving you bad cramps and other things until you "adjust" your behavior. Someone said "put a smile on your face", but he didn't at first, until the cramps and other pains came. When he did, it went away.
Yes, Ultimate Wizard. I made quite a few levels for that too.
Yes, these were cool games. I had Pinball Construction Set, Racing Destruction Set, and Lode Runner on my Commodore 64. I made about 150 levels of my own for Lode Runner; I almost filled a disk. I made quite a few pinball games and racing levels too. That was the most fun.
