I have just downloaded the latest Linux binaries for Doom Legacy and
they were even easier to setup then the binaries for Zdoom. It even
uses my timidity setup for midi music from my Soundblaster PCI 128. I
am very pleased with this program, I got it working very easily, why
can't the 2.0.93 binaries be released on Linux, if the Doom Legacy
team can get these working why are there no binaries past v1.22 on the
Linux platform. As I wroteIn my
there should already be some way to compile the
2.0.93 source code with gcc and build an executable that way.
Anyway, I have been working on my viewblog CGI and I have added more
features using the CGI module. I now have a fully autogenerated HTML
header and the BASE href tag is dynamically generated from the address
of the actual server, saving the user having to type in the value for
their server config.
Well, life here is Australia is going swimmingly, we have a train
system worse than India, the Hospitals are a joke and the Judges are
getting away with drunk driving, and going on sick leave for AU$1200 a
day! The trains are sitting on the platform full of early morning
commuters and the train is not moving because the driver has not
turned up! No I did not make this up.
You could not make this
up if you tried. How much worse can it get? 20 drivers go on sick
leave at the same time and then you have more delays. Just to add to
the horror of riding in cramped carriages packed tighter than an
inmates arse in the Bangkok Hilton, there is a serial sex offender in
the trains, which is pretty damned bad when there is no room to move.
Not to mention train guards who make the SS look like the Salvation
Army, who coming across a girl who had been Assaulted and was curled
up in a ball crying, she was fined for having her feet on the seat!
Excuse me for being pedantic, but considering how many problems there
are with the train system in Sydney, footprints on the seats are the
least of the problems. Hiring train guards from the ranks of the
Gestapo will not help either, having trains that arrive on time, and
are clean and air conditioned for once is the main goal here.
But our country has been going downhill for many years, I do not see
any let up in the decline of public services. Sure Micheal Costa has
no problems with this he is probably driven to work each day, he does
not have to take filthy smelly un-airconditioned trains and suffer
along with everyone else. Bob Carr went on holiday while this was
going on and it got this bad in his absence. Not that he actually does
anything anyway! I do not fancy sitting in a motionless train carriage
with serial gropers and B.O offenders waiting and waiting for the
driver to turn up so's we can be on our way thank you very much.
And what is it with those people who still insist on using those 20th
century Floppy Disks. It is the 21st century people, I just bought
some mini CD's the other day, the cases are exactly the same size as a
floppy disk but they fit 21min - 185mb, which fits 128.4722222222222
floppy disks on one CD according to Kcalc. And they only cost AU$7.95
for a packet of 5. They are not re-writable, but they are very
cool. Much better than a floppy, the last time I used one was to cat a
FreeDos image to one. With all the money you spend on packets of
Floppies you could have bought a USB Drive. A 128mb one can be had
relatively cheaply now. Oh, your PC runs Windows '98, is that your
excuse is it? USB Drives can work with Windows '9x but moving from one
PC to another is a problem, that is why I prefer Windows 2000/XP if I
have to use Windows. Although using Windows XP is an exercise in
frustration compared to KDE 3.2.2 which is a pleasure to use. I have
192mb of RAM and have Wine, Apache 2 and 1600*1200 pixel wallpaper on
as well as XMMS running and I still have plenty of memory free for CD
burning and gaming. Try that in XP.
