I respectfully disagree. This almost needs to be a pure C implementation and like I said use few or no external libraries. Java script and HTML renders are big beasts. You can't possibly audit them as an end user. Yea the C compiler is to big and complex for most people to practically audit as well; hence what I said about posting md5sums, so you have some verification if imperfect that your compiler is producing output that really corresponds to the input code you just audited.
I was going to try it out but I couldn't get in the site. It didn't seem slashdotted, it just seemed to not work. Now I see why.
You think FOSS has a monopoly on idiotic names?
FOSS may have GIMP, but Microsoft has WiMP and WinCE. But software names are far less stupid than automobile names.
I just saw a truck in the parking lot with the trunk emblazoned "Toyota TRD". I had to do a double take, Toyota Turd? That's what it says in txtspk.
How about the Dodge Startus, er, Stratus? The Chevy Nova? "No va" is Spanish for "doesn't go." Worse yet is the KIA. What damned fool named a car company the military acronym for Killed In Action??
How about Nestea? Yassah, I'm gonna love me some o'thet Nasty!
Does your town have an oriental restaurant named the Dynasty? Come on, I'm going to eat in a restaurant named "die nasty"??
I just now saw your comment while metamoderating, that was an excellent comment. The two guys who modded you up did well.
A bitmap ASCII (CP437) font? Done. I can crank one out in an hour, tops
You're better than I ever was, then. Of course, my tools were primitive. That took me back to 1984 when I discovered that the video circuit in Radio Shack's MC10 was capable of NTSC standard format quality video (but only in 8 colors) and decided to write a graphics program for it. It was great fun.
Anyway, I decided to add text capabilities to the drawing program, and it took a hell of a lot longer than an hour. I mapped it out on graph paper first, which took hours in itself and probably an hour to input the codes.
Since I'd made it so you could print your artwork on it's plotter, I eventually made it into a word processor. In 20k running on a 6802 chip IIRC.
Primitive times, a year later when I was looking for work the guy who interviewed me bragged about his mainframe, which had a whopping two megabytes of memory. I didn't get the job.
I haven't done any "real" programming since they ditched NOMAD and dBase and switched to MS Access at work ten years ago. Yech, glad I retire next year.
And what was your problem with Altavista?
My problem with it was that it wasn't really a search engine. It did no web crawling and sites were added by hand -- and it was damned hard to get your site on it. I was on all the rest of them, and I argued with them about the poor selection of Quake sites they had, some of the worst, content-free crap out there, while mine was actually excellent (other webmasters listed by Altavisa told me "your site puts mine to shame").
Infoseek was IMO the best one before Google came along. I fell in love with Google when I discovered it mostly because a search for just the word "quake" brought my site in something like third place. Of course, lots of folks linked to me.
Indeed. The AC obviously knows nothing about Christianity. Christians are judged not for our sins but for our good works, the price of our sins has been paid in blood, as long as we repent our wrongdoing. Forgiveness and love is what Christianity is all about.
I hadn't played that one even though I was a rabid gamer back then, but looking at the wikipedia entry I can see what you're saying.
Rex Nebular seems to be the polar opposite of the 1st person perspective guy (sorry, I'm stoned). I wish I'd have seen that game.
The fact that Linux has every feature Windows has while Windows lacks features that Linux has had for years is fact, not opinion. The fact that Linux is faster on the same machine is not opinion, but fact.
I use both OSes. Windows falls short everywhere except eye candy and gaming, which they excel at. Fact, not opinion.
Mars Needs Women.
That tickled a long-disused memory neuron... I think I've seen that phrase in a short story decades ago.
I was thinking how few women go into STEM and how few females there were in the old American west.
And thanks, I'm really looking forward to no more MS Access (and alarm clocks).
