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

Strategic game programming is a fascinating subject, that I have been attracted to for several years now.

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.

19.12.2007 by kerim in natural | pygame | python | tutorial

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.
