Let's Go to Mars with Martian Lander

jeu, 01/19/2017 - 07:47

This is the beginning of a series of articles where I develop a variation on the classic lunar-lander game themed around the planet Mars.

It also was the heyday of arcades, but I lived in the ghetto of Detroit and couldn't afford quarters to play games. Plus, there were none anywhere near the neighborhood where I lived. For me, the first real video-game experience was the Atari 2600. more>>

Papa's Got a Brand New NAS

jeu, 01/12/2017 - 08:21

It used to be that the true sign you were dealing with a Linux geek was the pile of computers lying around that person's house. How else could you experiment with networked servers without a mass of computers and networking equipment?

Debugging Democracy

You had to be a crank to insist on being right. Being right was largely a matter of explanations. Intellectual man had become an explaining creature. Fathers to children, wives to husbands, lecturers to listeners, experts to laymen, colleagues to colleagues, doctors to patients, man to his own soul, explained. more>>

NethServer: Linux without All That Linux Stuff

jeu, 12/29/2016 - 07:05

Okay, that title really isn't fair. NethServer has all the Linux stuff, it's just that you don't have to interact with it in the traditional way in order to reap the benefits.
