I have installed the SyntaxHighlighter Evolved plugin on this blog so that I can post code when the need arises. Here’s an example of the
factorial function in Python:
if n == 0:
return n * factorial(n - 1)
There are many good highlighting plugins to choose from, but this one is officially used by WordPress.com.
Indie Game: The Movie has just been released. It can downloaded in non-DRM format (1080p mp4, among others) directly from the filmmakers. I’ve been looking forward to the release of this documentary for quite a while now.
I’ll be at the Foundations of Digital Games 2012 conference all this week. This year, the conference is hosted in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Gitolite allows you to setup git hosting on a central server, with very fine-grained access control and many more powerful features. Once I figured out how to get to the actual installation instructions, I found the deployment approach to be quite interesting.

Finished the Dropquest 2012 multi-step scavenger hunt by Dropbox, albeit with some help from online forums, Internet searches, and even a bit of Wolfram Alpha. The Dropbox Blog has more details on the magical journey.

There will be pork. Laurel and I attended The Carolina Pork Experiment at Motorco. My friend Stacie Nagy participated in the cooking competition, and came away with the Theo Peck Experimental Cooking Prize. Congratulations, Stacie!
I installed the Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) extension on my research page, though I’m not quite sure what to do with it. According to the site, “Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) is a free, open-source extension to MediaWiki – the wiki software that powers Wikipedia – that lets you store and query data within the wiki’s pages.”
Sometime last year, I e-mailed
[email protected] about their lack of academic search options with the !bang syntax. Imagine my shock when I received a personal response from Gabriel Weinberg, the Founder and CEO of the company!
Lately, I’ve been more and more frustrated with Google‘s increasing clutter, but their attempts to integrate their Google+ social network into their other offerings is what finally pushed me over the edge. I think other users may be feeling the same way, given some recent traffic statistics.
Consequently, I’ve decided to seriously use DuckDuckGo as my default search engine for the next month. This post serves as my commitment device.
