Weekly Software News August 5th to 11th

weekly

This week as the temperature reaches a peak over here, making me run away from my desktop computer as fast as I can (since it acts like a fucking heater in summer and raises the room temperature by 5 degrees celsius), the Pandora scene activity is at its lowest level. This is probably due to a combination of vacations, trips and lack of energy if you are as 夏場って  as I am. Anyway, Exophase still found the time to update DraStic and to make it even more awesome, and we get a nice FBA update from Dave18, as well as IOQuake3 AND Return to Castle Wolfenstein from PtitSeb. Actually that alone should keep you busy for a while.

While I had heard about RMS many times before, reading about his life and motivations in more details provided a number of insights. Let me share some with you.

August, here we are. Here in Japan the cicadas are singing as hard as ever and no ne wants to be outside for loo long for severe sweat will drop from your forehead in a matter of seconds. When writing this I am on my way to Aomori in the northern part of Japan, to see for the first time the Nebuta matsuri, one of the most famous Japanese festivals. I will probably attach a few pics after a couple of days, just to share a bit of the fun with you. For now, let’s come back to the latest repo news.

We are already in August. Summer is half over. At least I hope, because I’m already roasting where I live. Fuck the Sun, seriously. And the orbit we are on as well. Why can’t the planet just run in a proper circle around the fireball, I’m asking you. Anyway, this will remain a mystery, just like the Top 5 articles from this month. Really weird results there.
