I'm happy to announce Escape Beta 2, which adds animation to the game. This was several months in the making! There has been a lot of great activity and new levels recently, so things are looking good...
Plans for the next release: Sound effects, and a few new simple tiles.

Brendan and Heather and I went on a little photo trip two weeks ago when the weather was nice. It took us almost the whole time just to make our way to a specific location, so it ended up being more of a "Reconnaissance trip" than a photo trip, but here are 5 nice photos from it anyway.
After a lot of frustration, I have finally gotten my SML SSH daemon talking to OpenSSH and other standard ssh clients. This is no thanks to the protocol documentation ("internet draft"), which is quite ambiguous about a number of important things, and definitely no thanks to the OpenSSH source code, which is pretty crummy--there are far too many different implementations of DES in that thing. On the other hand, the source of putty is very clear and nice and helpful, and putty now even compiles on unix!
Anyway, here is a transcript of what it does now:
[tom@spacebar unix]$ ssh -p 9999 firstname.lastname@example.org Warning: Server lies about size of server public key: actual size is 513 bits vs. announced 257. Warning: This may be due to an old implementation of ssh. Warning: Server lies about size of server host key: actual size is 1026 bits vs. announced 513. Warning: This may be due to an old implementation of ssh. Warning: Permanently added 'gs82.sp.cs.cmu.edu,184.108.40.206' (RSA1) to the list of known hosts. Warning: Remote host failed or refused to allocate a pseudo tty. Hello welcome to my secure internet server
Killed by signal 2.
I guess the next step is to allocate a pseudo tty, whatever that is. Also, uh, check passwords.
I'm having a "bad computer day"—things that normally work fine aren't working. (Even my CD-ROM is skipping now!) Therefore, the rest of my day is devoted to non-computational pursuits: laundry, housecleaning, and hockey.
