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.

23.12.2007 by azarai in gui | resource tip

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, 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.

Starfields and Galaxies with Python

19.12.2007 by kerim in natural | pygame | python | tutorial | Algorithms

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.

Printing the content of a directory in windows

26.09.2007 by kerim in tools

Do you remember the good old times when you used to print the results of a simple "DIR" command ? This "feature" has been absent since Windows 95. Of course you still can start the command line and issue the dir command but normally printers are managed by windows these days and do not have to reside on "lpt1:".

Restart applications in python

24.09.2007 by kerim in python

I wrote a small script that allows for an application to restart. Perhaps it is usefull for others. There are several use cases like "autoupdating" or changes in preferences in the program that require restarts.
