I attended our semester Advisory Committee Meeting at Wayne Community College, where faculty and industry members meet to make make curriculum suggestions and advise instructional faculty on trends in the workplace.
For a much needed break from graduate studies, my friend Stacie and I spent Friday evening attending the Beer and Bourbon Festival at the Koka Booth Amphitheatre in Cary, North Carolina. Admission included over 40 bourbons and 60 beers on tap, along with a great selection of barbeque.
In this technical note, we’d like to setup GNU Emacs and AUCTeX so that it can do both forward searches (using Emacs to control the PDF Viewer) and inverse searches (using the PDF Viewer to control Emacs). This work is based on William’s instructions, but with some additional modifications from Miguel Frasson that remove the dependency on
sumatra-forward.el, as long you primarily use
pdflatex as your LaTeX target. The technique uses the command line rather than DDE to interface with Sumatra PDF.
This article describes the process for playing Fallout and Fallout 2 in windowed mode (that is, not full screen) successfully on Windows 7. The modifications to both Fallout and Fallout 2 apply to the non-DRM versions available at GOG.
- For Fallout 1, you will need to use D3DWindower. Unfortunately, the program and Geocities site (surprise!) are in Korean or Japanese, but a badly ported English version is available if you look hard enough. Extract the files and copy them directly into the Fallout installation directory.
For Fallout 2, use sfall.
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:
def factorial(n): if n == 0: return 1 else: 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. From Pro Git: “Gitolite is somewhat unusual as far as “server” software goes — access is via ssh, and so every userid on the server is a potential ‘gitolite host’”.
