Not bad, I lasted just over ten days without updating. Only lasted a day though without the modem.. ho hum!
I added a page with a screenshot of my WindowMaker desktop. You might like to have a look at it. I’m running two demos at the same time in two xdos sessions.. 🙂
There’s a news server dedicated to demo scene discussion groups now open at They have a group called coders.os.linux which I posted a message in last week. Not many replies though even considering what I posted 😉
You all probably know that ALSA has gone up to version 1.0.2 and it works nicely with my AWE64. My fault originally, my conf file wasn’t setup properly.
If you have a 3dfx take a look at this dos demo(TG98 demo winner), Dimension. It’s over 4 megs in size and IMO not worth downloading over a modem but the last part of the demo is nice – nice use of colours in textures and light-balls. The first part is standard “flying-through-space” fare..
Clanlib, the graphics and sound lib for multimedia coding on Win32 and Linux has reached version 0.1.4 and although it doesn’t yet support sound in Linux, it could be worth keeping an eye out for.
Have you read about all the trouble MS got themselves into recently? On slashdot a comparison was made between MS and cars.. Check it out at Microsoft Car. Very good 🙂
As soon as my exams are over I’m going to implement some ideas for the page. Keep an eye on this space!
BTW – exams are on until 5th June..
