katsaris: "Where is THEIR vote?" (Default)
This is one of the best optical illusions I've yet seen: http://www.patmedia.net/marklevinson/cool/cool_illusion.html Focusing on the central cross, a moving green circle appears, and if one really focuses, all the purple ones gradually disappear.


The beta of Inform 7 was released a day or two ago. And it is such a radical redesign over what Inform 6 used to provide that it may very well actually push me back to writing Interactive Fiction after some years' absence. Besides the unified GUI enviroment so that I won't need to struggle with compiler/interpreter/editor, the language itself has been redesigned to the point that its source reads like natural English..

Really it's so amazingly radical a redesign that it feels inappropriate that they didn't change the name "Inform" completely... Or atleast call it "Inform++" or something.


I dunno what I was thinking but I signed myself up for the femgenficathon orchestrated by [livejournal.com profile] gehayi The prompt I was given has already sparked some ideas. The deadline is far enough ahead that I'll probably have the time to turn them into a story too. Probably.


Iraq is #4 in the most failed states of the world listing. Same ranking as last year but the numerical score has actually worsened. Not much surprise there, just more bitter validation of the stupidity of invading it in the first place.

Greece is in the 26th *best* place -- while Scandinavia tops the list.
