Quake

In the spirit of awaiting Doom III, recently I played some of old id games: classic Wolf, Doom, Quake 1, and lately Quake 3 Arena. Nice way to waste some hours. However I came up with an idea for writing mini HOWTO of playing them on Linux (e.g for Wolf you must use DOSEMU etc). Sounds not too bad, right?

Evil MS Word

I had to use MS Word today. I created a blank document and then wanted to insert a simple 279 KB JPEG picture (http://www.kde.org/img/clipart/tkdelogo_xxl.jpg). So I just picked up menu Insert, Picture, From File and the highlighted the file. The right- side of the dialog which supposed to show the image preview was just simply blank, even as I have waited for minutes. Then I just realized it freezed. Evil evil evil!

KOffice

Nice chatting at #koffice last night. Had fun together with David Faure trying to find why KSpread is so slow. Will examine in depth later. I also start to use my ariya@kde.org e-mail address.

Just realized, there are so many different algorithms for just calculating factorial. This link is highly recommended: www.luschny.de/math/factorial/FastFactorialFunctions.htm

Doom III

Getting closer ! See those many impressive screenhosts.

The Clones vs Spidey

I bought the latest Time Asia magazine, which has reddish Spiderman on its cover and happened to found another The Clones vs Spidey feature. I'm getting sick with that.

Spiderman

I bought Tanenbaum's "Operating System: Design and Implementation 2nd ed". It was amazing because of the price: USD 3 !

I was terribly busy last week, working on some difficult parts of my thesis report. Hopefully this week would allow me to get enough air to hack again on KSpread
