This makes me remember I didn’t published my 1m squared artwork with a big monster I did for the 3rd book.
So I’ve managed to have few hours to relax this weekend, so I’ve played with ruby. I finally ended up with the will to remake the “Orc name generator” I’ve made few months ago, I’m happy to see my coding skills increases a little (everything’s less messy, I’ve get rid of my horrible C habit to make all my loops with “while” ah ah).
I’ve also discovered some really cool features of Ruby.
It’s a really stupid program that generates a random orc names with an Orcish clan name. This time Entirely in english.
A video game turned Hitler into a maniac. It wasn’t until he finished the game that he died. It was Wolfenstein 3D.

—tl;dr: Silence while working is great if you live in the I.S.S. or on an island. (school education has completly destroyed my ability to sum stuff.) —
I’ll write “listen to music while working” all along this article but I think it’s more “hearing” or “having a background sound/reference”, no one can really listen to music while doing something else. But today, I shan’t describe what “listening to music” is. ;)
Few years ago I’ve read the absolutely amazing Richard Williams’ “Animation Techniques” book where a very wise sentence is written “working in the silence, is better, because you can’t concentrate with music.”. (it’s not exactly written like that, it’s from memory) Wise, but being this absolute is pretentious (Mr. Richard Williams is a master but)…
If you write a little AppleScript command to launch a terminal softwares over the graphical interface. For example like that:
set cmd to “/usr/bin/some_script.sh”
do shell script cmd
Don’t forget to write the complete absolute path to your software !
I’ve been trying to stay out of it because arguing over the internet is pointless, but Tau is OBVIOUSLY better than Pi.

There’s a unit converter with wolfram alpha, man pages, python and other languages documentation pages. I used it once for gaming to roll dices with “roll 3d6″ (or anything else) and there’s a new plugin for calculating resistor. Their url is not obsfuscated with weird POST commands.
And they have a really good XMPP service.
I didn’t find any flaws. I love it. :3
