Comment GNU Screen beats all (Score 1) 628

I don't like multiple monitors. I can concentrate on only one at a time anyway. (I heard there's a species called 'females' that can do several things at one time, though. Perhaps they can use multiple monitors.)

I do use this screen a lot, however.

Not to mention <C-x> <C-3> mode on Emacs.

of 0.1-second ticks since the system was started up. Unfortunately, 0.1 seconds cannot be expressed accurately as a binary number, so when it's shoehorned into a 24-bit register

All they had to do is use integers, where a value of 1 represents 0.1 s.

0 A.D. Goes Open Source 88

DoubleRing writes "Wildfire Games has announced that it will be moving its previously closed development process for 0 A.D. to open source. All code will be released under the GPL and all art under CC-BY-SA. 0 A.D. is a historically-based RTS, and while it's not yet complete, this trailer is purportedly actual gameplay footage. With a codebase of over 150k lines of C++ code plus 25k lines in development tools, this is looking like a fairly promising entrant into the open source RTS field. The screenshots are definitely pretty, to say the least."
