It smells like organization

I may have mentioned dunemap before. A tiny little project among billions for me. I set up Trac for it this morning, so now I’ll get happy little lists describing exactly what comes next.  We stopped using Trac at work for anything other than visually seeing what changes were made with subversion, and replaced it with Jira. This thing is pretty well scalable and is insanely configurable for users and admins. I didn’t really want to spend the time to figure out how it works so I didn’t even bother.  emerge www-apps/trac  and a couple of minor tweaks to apache’s config and I was up and running. The apache config changes were mostly just copying what I already had for subversion.

What’s your tagline?

Ξ February 21st, 2008 | → 0 Comments | ∇ blog |

I think you’ve all read the wonderful comic, Sinfest. I’ve noticed that every (non-color) comic has a tagline for the author. Go ahead and look at the archives to get a handle on what I’m talking about. I’ll wait while you do that.

So, today’s experiment is for you to make your own tagline, in the same vein. Leave it in the comments.

I’ve been using Xmonad as my window manager under X11 since early December. Xmonad is written in Haskell, a purely functional programming language that compiles down to machine code. Haskell is the most different looking programming language I’ve ever seen; when I started looking at Lisp, the structures made sense, but I’ve been lost looking at Haskell code. I suppose I need to pick up a book on the subject. I digress, Xmonad builds upon a different paradigm than what most users are used to. Most Window Managers (including Windows Explorer, Gnome, Etc.) use co-ordinate based stacks of objects to represent the environment. Think of this as having Firefox or Internet Explorer fullscreen, and you press alt-tab to get to Google Talk or you drag iTunes around the screen. Xmonad deviates from this by implementing what’s known as a tiling window manager. Instead of stacking objects, Xmonad gives applications non-overlapping regions of your monitor. This has the handy effect of putting what you’re using right in front of your eyes.

The way Xmonad handles where it puts the applications is terrific. If you have one window open, it will take up your whole monitor. If you have two, each will get half. But what about if you have three, or more? Xmonad solves this by declaring the left half of your screen as the main workspace, displaying one window there, and divides the right half in twain. Hence your attention can be given fully to your main application, while you switch to the other programs for support. This is quite handy if you’re a programmer and you have GNU Emacs or gVim open as your main application and two terminals open to test your project stacked one on top of the other to the right of it.

There is the obvious issue of “Most of my applications are designed as WIMP interfaces and this will break them!”. Don’t worry, other tiling window managers such as Ion force you into strict tiling, but you can configure Xmonad in its settings file to allow certain applications to float on top of other windows. Everything in Xmonad can also be controlled by the keyboard. Switching between windows is as simple at hitting alt-k. You can switch virtual desktops by pressing alt-<screen_num>(I switched mine to alt-f1 … f9 so as to not interfere with Irssi). There’s also multi-monitor support.

You can find out more about Xmonad at http://xmonad.org. They also have a directory of interesting screenshots, and a wiki full of configurations.

Sins of a Dune Empire

Ξ February 18th, 2008 | → 0 Comments | ∇ special, Status Update |

I’ve been playing Sins of a Solar Empire a lot lately. It’s a fantastic 4X RTS. It’s like a galactic scale Starcraft meets Civilization. I’ve also taken up building a Dune themed map for it. logikal is helping me with it a bunch. So far I’ve got players for House Atreides, House Harknonnen, House Corrino, House Vernius, House Richese, and I plan on adding the Bene Tleilax and maybe the Zensunni. I’ll keep this updated with the status.

Giant Mammoths

Ξ February 13th, 2008 | → 0 Comments | ∇ sanity adventures, stuff and junk |

I’ve just returned from a weekend trip to Mammoth, CA. A bunch of slackers all headed up in a van with the intent of hurling ourselves down the face of a mountain on sticks strapped to our feet. Naturally, I got separated and lost thanks to the reliable Maker Effect. I ended up going around the backside of the mountain and falling face first down a run too hard for my skill level. I had a great time doing it though. A little from the ol’ pedia on the ski area:
The Mammoth Mountain Ski Area is a large ski resort located in eastern California on the east side of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in the Inyo National Forest. The ski area, commonly called simply Mammoth, has the best terrain park according to Transworld Snowboarding Magazine, and is consistently ranked in the top ten ski resorts by Ski Magazine.
