Every week, there are many things I stumble upon worth blogging about. Unfortunately, there is either too much to at that time, just too little to say about it or it’s simply worth to be remembered without bloating it with an exhaustive blog entry.
Therefore, I want to give a more or less regular (let’s see how this works out) update on all these cool stuff one might find out there in the wilderness of the cyberspace.
- The source code of Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy was open sourced under GPL after Lucas Arts was closed by Disney.
- Anyway, there is still a way to play Lucas Arts adventures using the ScrummVM.
- There is a absolute minimum every software developer must know about unicode and character sets.
- If you are looking for some nifty icons, you might give FindIcons.com a try.
- There’s an open source clone of the calssic game Elite called Oolite, open to be modded and still under development.
- Whether you consider to use either MooTools or jQuery for your next project, there is a comparison of both excellent frameworks by a MooTools developer (no, not biased at all, at least not really, maybe a little) .
- If you are in need of an UUID, you can pick one here.
- Some stuff to consider when performing load tests on HTTP servers.
- Convert your GitHub check-ins into music using Song of GitHub.
- Installing a single-node cluster of Hadoop on Ubunto might cause a nervous breakdown when not following Michael Noll’s excellent step-by-step guide.
- Also for setting up Eclipse with PyDev for developing Python one could follow a tutorial.
- 11 use cases (maybe) solved by Redis and …
- …how Redis might help you being added to you stack.
- If you are really new to Redis syntax, you might spend 30 minutes to master it.
- And finally, worth a laugh and a thought: a great talk with a note of sarcasm, given by Adam Bien about Vernunft Driven Design (German only, sorry folks).
