Since I started on a proposal for a new customer it really has been one of the most annoying tasks to keep up with his documents. Every week there are around 200 MB to 1 GB of files and although the customer may think that his hirarchy of directories is fine, i think differently. So I have several hundred files of "potential" interest hidden in over 8 GB of nested directories by now. All i know is that they and either with .txt, .doc or *.pdf

Topic: Using python to determine (sub-)pixel errors in TFT monitors.
Strategic game programming is a fascinating subject, that I have been attracted to for several years now. I always wanted to implement my own chess program but that seemed to complicated for the beginning. Therefore I started with Reversi and a simple minimax alogrithm on my beloved Amiga. Then I turned to chess and learned about more sophisticated variations of the minimax.
Some time ago i started thinking of building a better tools page for Imago. One of my requirements was that it had to be a plain static xhtml site, no dynamic generation on request. It's the most frequented page here, so i'd prefer a simple static site. But i didn't like to hardcode layout and content in one file. That would be a maintenance nightmare for me.

Gyonen aka Matrix got a small update here.
Imago runs on Adobe AIR now. You can now enjoy your galleries offline, too. If your impatient check out the screenshot and download ImagoOnAIR alpha version and the Adobe AIR runtime, if you don't have it already installed.
If your a bit like me, your really appreciate open source web design and know probably some of the good template sites out there too. Yesterday i was browsing some of them, The Open Design Community, FreeCSSTemplates.org to name the best imho. Looking for ideas and complete templates for some upcoming projects and a site redesign for imago. I found some good, but not actually what i was looking for until i stumpled up on Textual.
A few days ago i posted some code to create screens with stars and galaxies. Today i introduce a new part usable for creating Lindenmayer Systems.
A long time ago i spend a lot of my resources programming fractals and "natural" phenomenons. Since my last adventure with pygame i was playing around with the idea of implementing some algorithms of old times in python anew and use pygame to test them. A small module that creates screens with stars on it is what i will speak about here.
