I have not "finished" the game to my satisfaction. I consider it a "playable prototype". However, I don't have the time to finish it. Sooner or later I'm going to clean up the source a little, change the name and then open-source it with a license suitable for allowing its inclusion into a multi-car...

Awesome. It works great. I understand the need for "napTime", but it was a little annoying :)

On Gentoo Linux, I installed v 0.90 of html5lib (it was the version preferred by portage) ("emerge -avu dev-python/html5lib").

Thank you very much Tepples.

I have python installed on my Gentoo Linux box. I'd like to test the PM archiver. What do I need to do?

I've written many projects using the regular win32-api (no MFC, rarely COM, sometimes ATL, yes STL) with either C or C++. The vast majority of those projects can compile without changes on Linux with winelib and run just fine on Linux. Although I've never ported it to Linux, the Faria ROM Editor is ...

It lets me store exactly how far along I am in the crawl, and it puts all the harvested pages in a single file so that they don't use up so many inodes and so much slack space. Then I can gzip up a single .sqlite file and pull it to my machine once I'm done. I'll try it this evening after I've made...

I have no strong opinion on changing BBS software and/or version. But if it is changed, I request something that supports giving RSS feeds for channels. I vote for keeping the entire forums archived. I feel that the history of each discussion is worth preserving. I first joined you guys+gals in Octo...

Is there some way to efficiently construct a backup of our PMs? Otherwise I might write a small perl agent to do it (using "LWP::UserAgent").

Interesting. The target web server is running on a java stack. I wonder if the "reset" of the ramp coincides with a system garbage collection. Thanks for the insight.

[off topic] Weird ramp artifact in periodic measurements

Hello everyone, (Disclaimer: This is NOT nesdev related. But you all are a bright group of people, so I was hoping that you could help). I am searching for the formal name for a phenomenon that I'm seeing in some web site performance monitoring (graph below). First, a description of what you see. Th...

You have an old version of mapper 34. The old version supports only 128 KiB, as I mentioned before ; the new version supports all 512 KiB. Loopy's mappers solved my problem. Thank you. Do I need to put detection for this situation into the menu software? Actually, detecting the problem and giving t...

4 Mbit version (includes Pogo Cats and NES15) 2 Mbit version (omits those games) Bad news. Neither of those ROMs will play on my powerpak. My other ROMs load fine. When I tell the powerpak to load either of the action53 roms, the screen clears to black, but the game never boots up; the NES locks up.

Tepples,

In a few hours I will be setting up the homebrew exhibit at the MGC. I need the ROM image for Action 53. Please email it to me when you get a chance.
