CNN was crazy enough to use one of my old fonts on their TV station. Check out the screengrab: Tetanus on CNN! Thanks a lot to "inpheaux skifyre" at skizzers.org for the good eye and fast screen-capture skills.

Amusing Meta-spam (28 Feb 2001 at 00:46)
Hmmm... amusing bit from a spam today:

"I've found a great free product which will spider webpages and extract email addresses. I got your email address in one of the marketing opt-in list I purchesed and thought that this product might help you in your website marketing efforts!"

This weekend out of necessity I learned how to crack software with a nice low-level Windows debugger called SoftICE. It was fun -- I feel like I'm 14 again!

My new song "Programmed To Kill" finally made it on the UNTITLED.GIF ORCHESTRA page at mp3.com. lyrics/chords in the usual place!

Metroid <<= 1 (24 Feb 2001 at 10:17)
My computer called "Metroid" just got a space-doubling hard drive upgrade. That brings my storage total across my 4 computers to something like 80 gigs.

Malarkey? or Effective Way? (22 Feb 2001 at 17:03)
"All Your Base" fans, check out this great book called "How to Good-Bye Depression: If You Constrict Anus 100 Times Everyday. Malarkey? or Effective Way?". No kidding.

Look at the sales rank: On Amazon it sells better than Crime and Punishment. (!)

Dr. Tom 7, Part II (22 Feb 2001 at 11:46)
Well, I got my official CMU acceptance last week (FedEx'd overnight from 200 yards across campus...) and yesterday I got my unofficial acceptance from Cornell, too!

That makes me 2/2. Hooray!

The Party Of Helicopters (20 Feb 2001 at 22:58)
On my playlist recently is The Party Of Helicopters' new album called Mt. Forever. This is kind of like metal / math rock, but with emo vocals and no ridiculous pretensions of evil death. Similar to Faraquet, occasionally reminiscent of Contra for the NES. (But no sawtooth waves).

OK, the radar system (aka Stalkertron 2000) has been updated to finally distinguish between different categories of items. You'll notice by perusing the backlog that I've been categorizing these since the very beginning; you just haven't been able to see it until now.

The new version of Q3F just came out today; it's running on my server and the file is also mirrored there for your downloading convenience.

Meme of the day (15 Feb 2001 at 18:16)
This is super-popular the last 2 days...

SOMEONE SET UP US THE BOMB! WHAT!

ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US!

This is some kind of music video made after the opening to Wing Zero on the Sega Megadrive. Gotta love that broken english.

For more wacky video game quotes, check out Whazzat at classic gaming.

NEW: n-queens (14 Feb 2001 at 19:03)
I put up some programs I wrote for solving the n-queens problem. You can use this to win big in the Neopets Space Faerie Puzzle! (BTW, if you like Pokémon and math then we should talk.)

I finally put up the code I wrote a very long time to generate random text from a grammar description. This is used for the news flashes on UNTITLEDGIF.ORG and used to make haikus on snoot. You can download this sloppy, undocumented C++ program (and example data) here. (Forgive me, I was young!)

Dreamycast (08 Feb 2001 at 16:46)
My roommate got a Dreamcast. What a video games addict! I like Jet Grind Radio though. What could be better than a cartoon cell-shaded skateboarding game where you fight the man by spraypainting your logo on the streets of Japan? You can design your own graffiti, too, and we have some good ones.

Another one bites the dust... (03 Feb 2001 at 01:21)
Yet another hard drive failure in my AT&T Globalyst ("spacebar"). The machine sort of still works (linux is pretty resilient), but the web server won't start up. I'm in the process of moving content from spacebar.res to dentu.res, which will for the time being (somewhat sleazily) host spacebar.org.
