if you were ready to sit down and try to engineer a clone of the Street after reading Snow Crash like I was, you might like this. It's called Second Life. It's about the closest I've seen anything get to the Street so far. I'll be posting more details/screenshots in my livejournal later.
i'm getting fat from eating christmas cookies, someone please take them away.

the battery in my ipaq wouldn't charge, and I thought it had to do with linux apm, but it turns out it was the sleeve it was sitting in. replaced it with a new pcmcia sleeve and boom! here's a screenshot of me playing with a julia fractal.
wow it's interesting to see what some of the older article topics on advogato were (I needed a change from sco and introspector)...
some of my favorites so far:
"the DVD crack"
Sourceforge goes beta (wow)
ReiserFS filling the journaling fs gap in Linux
article 9 ALREADY talking about article peer review!
Napster controversy over the open source client 'Gnap'
of course the list goes on and on. I wonder what happened to "Advogato's number"?
so today I hear news about Gentoo starting a game company for linux games. pretty neat stuff, especially since they're already releasing the cd image for America's Army (I kind of has reserves about that games motivations...). The dl site is being killed though, so I was thinking about starting a torrent since I've never used bittorrent before, but word on the street is there's already one going. it's here. It's going now and working great... Bram bittorrent rocks. Thanks for some cool software.
