Microsoft Dreams of Death

That's right: Ballmer is dreaming of Google's death in five year's time.

Nice job on that monopoly control, you think?

J.t.Qbe comments: If Monkeyboy says so, it must be true. Guess I'll stop using Google and Gmail now and switch to Microsoft's search whatever and Hotmail. And then shoot myself.

A.T. Hun comments: DEVELOPERS!!!1!!1!


Had one of those fun programming moments yesterday while coding a data dumper in Delphi. I was dumping a string to a flat file, and discovered that my code was dumping chunks of the heap into my file instead of the string I intended. Luckily, it didn't just blue-screen the machine, but bad pointer derefs don't always let you off that easy.

Now that I mention Delphi, there is a new release of Free Pascal available. This freeware version of Pascal is even somewhat compatible with Delphi, but can be used on x86, PowerPC, ARM and SPARC platforms. Good stuff.

Serious Sam 2 on Linux?

Linux Games got word of a report on Voodoo Extreme that Croteam has ported the second generation of their Serious engine to Linux. I'm seriously (har!) hoping that this means that there will be a port of Serious Sam 2. I enjoyed Serious Sam: The Second Encounter, but the Linux client is beta and currently residing on the back burner.
