Topic: linux Adventures in Mandriva 2008, part 1: Wifi
01:12am EST, 30 Dec 2007

So I still find myself clinging to Mandrake, years after they started buying other distros, got a ridiculous name, and were outshined as the darling of community distributions by Ubuntu and even PCLinuxOS, itself a Mandrake spinoff.

But I'm comfortable with urpmi, so here we are.

I helped a friend install Mandriva 2008.0 on her Acer laptop. The install went smoothly until we encountered something that had been a minor annoyance in 2007.1 and became a bigger problem in 2008: the Broadcom bcm4318 wifi adapter. more...

Topic: linux gambas 1.0.16 and 1.9.31 rpms for mandriva
01:57pm EDT, 29 May 2006

Catching up on Gambas releases, here's the stable 1.0.16 and unstable 1.9.31 versions. Lots of new stuff since the last unstable package, including an official MDI version of the IDE with a new editor control, the ability to edit the controls' tab order using the hierarchy window, the much-needed ability to nudge controls on forms using the arrow keys, updates to the language itself, and like a hundred bug fixes. more...

Rain Dogs emblemI've been trying to come up with an emblem for my kart in Mario Kart DS. The icon editor in MKDS is surprisingly full-featured, but you only get 1024 pixels (32x32) in 15 colors plus transparency. more...

Topic: linux Firefox "View Selected" extension
11:51pm EDT, 6 Aug 2005

This isn't new, but for some reason Mozilla Update doesn't like it. View Selected simply opens a new browser window and displays the selected text (actually, the smallest amount of valid HTML that includes all of the selected text.) more...

Topic: games Nintendo DS games: the story so far
02:21pm EDT, 11 Jun 2005

Most game reviews are written by people who have only had the games for a few days to a week. Well, it's been about a month since I bought any Nintendo DS games, and I've had a couple of them for 6 months. I have 7 altogether, including the Metroid Prime demo that came with it, and I guess I'll also do Pictochat which is built in. Some I've finished, some I haven't, but I've played them all for hours and hours. I think that makes me qualified to say whether I think they're any good. more...
