I've got an Android phone with, currently, no phone service. Well, OK, it's a WinMo phone chainloading Android, but that's relatively irrelevant. Soon I will want to avoid using minutes from my incoming T-Mo PAYG phone card, so I'll still want to make phone calls using SIP any time I'm in WiFi range. You can even get out of paying for outgoing calls so long as you turn them into incoming calls.
Well, MekTek is back up, and the diligent programmer-types have been working to address issues, and information has come out on how to download the free release of Mechwarrior4: Mercenaries. Here's some hints.
If you want fansubs for Vandread 1st (it's anime) you can find them on divxsubtitles.net, except for episodes 7, 12, and 13 which are corrupt. Attached you will find SMI files in zip archives and as gzipped files for those episodes.
Freespace 2 is one of the finest space combat flight "simulators" that has ever been made, and Freespace 2 Open, a product of The Freespace 2 Source Code Project (SCP) is a truly excellent free, Open Source version which you can play on Windows, Linux, or Mac OS X. But what happens when you have played it? There's multiplayer support, so there is theoretically infinite replay value, but there may come a time when you can't or don't want to play versus other humans, and have already exhausted the campaign. What to do?
I've been working on a patch for the img_assist.module that allows you to easily link uploaded images (using image.module, and upload.module, or compatible) into other node types. The img_assist.module is quite dandy and more or less indispensible in my book, but it is missing some very important features. img_assist.module only allows you to use certain predefined sizes (whatever's defined for images, that is smaller than img_assist.module's maximum size) and a custom size. It also only gives you two alignment options: float left, and float right.
I originally posted this on drupal.org here but I wrote it, so here it is.
I just ran into a fun problem: I installed a VMware LAMP appliance and it turns out it doesn't have lynx, links, curl, or wget. What to do? Luckily, it has perl. The following perl script grabs cron.php from localhost and prints the job's status to STDOUT.
The below screen shot of DOOM for Intellivision is accompanied by some funky digital noise which I have no idea how to capture and put here from one of these emulators without installing additional software. I've installed three versions of it already. One of the emulators has an AVI capture mode on it, maybe I should try doing that. I generated the screen shot below with Nostalgia, a neat Intellivision emulator. I'm sorry about the dodgy quality, but I hit alt-printscreen a little too late, and I'd already spent too much time on this. It's not like it's really playable at these speeds anyway.
