gnome-games

Thanks to work from Theo van Klaveren gnibbles now scales and uses SVG graphics. Colour-blind gnibbles players will be pleased to know that the bonuses are now different shapes, although the snakes are still all the same.

Theme selection has returned to aisleriot so it should now be basically what it was in terms of functionality. Thanks to Aaron Schlaegel we also have one and two-suit versions of spider for those who actually want to win a spider game slightly more often than a transit of Venus.

Cats

The Dog (who is really a cat) caught his first mouse today. I've been waiting for this: Both cats have been catching insects for some time now and have been slowly working their way up in size. At first it was cicadas, then a weta, and more recently centipedes. The cicadas were OK, they ate them without much fuss, however a centipede will keep a cat occupied for ages. They would bring it into the house, let it go and watch it crawl away. Just as it gets out of reach they flick it back towards them and watch it crawl away again. Eventually the centipede succumbs to this abuse and dies at which point it gets left in the middle of the floor. Cats are be complete bastards.
