Unsitten

Es scheint – schon länger – in Mode zu sein, potentielle Spieler quasi in’s kalte Wasser zu schmeißen. Aktueller Beanstandungsgrund grade: The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. (Oder Ace Combat 6, Kingdom under Fire etc. pp). Man wird sofort von Ratten, Untoten und Goblins angegriffen und soll sich nebenbei noch die Bedienung merken.

Ich fand das Konzept von Fable besser; man wird langsam an die Spielbedienung herangeführt, mit nicht zu starken Gegnern, einer in die Geschichte eingepassten Ausbildung etc.

“Fixing” livejournal

Livejournal seems to have changed their feed URL scheme from http://www.livejournal.com/users/<username>/data/rss to http://<username>.livejournal.com/data/rss.

So if you’re encountering errors like “text/html is not an XML media type” on LiveJournal.com’s feeds, update the URL and anything will be fine again.

I’m not dead

Hi there.

I’m not dead. Just doing the “for Food” part a lot.

Let me summarize some news on my pet projects:

XChat

Xchat v2.6.x is ugly to compile on Windows and needs work and time which I do not have at the moment. So you need to either stick with 2.4.5 or use another package.

Feedmap

I’m sorry, right now it does what I want and cannot invest time in it (there seems to be a little bug with Livejournal protected entries right now).

Linuxwacom

Effort to develop the shared memory runtime configuration has significantly slowed down but I’m working on it, currently integrating the differences to the latest offical public release.
