I have been listening with interest to Klaatu’s recent series on HPR. What I have found is that he makes topics interesting to me. I listen to the the episodes typically during my 40 minute commute from the bunker to the wilds of Telford. Thanks to him I actually tried Emacs – I even read up on Emacs during my lunch break. Not entirely sure that I’m ready for the emacs yet, but hope springs eternal eh?
Anyway I was listening to Klaatu’s RPM packaging guides, and heard that He hadn’t tried DEB’s yet . I have been packaging with DEB’s as part of my content packaging research, so I thought I’d have a crack at packaging YesPlz for Ubuntu – primarily because I haven’t packaged any C based code yet, and it doesn’t exist in the Ubuntu repositories yet… I’m using the Ubuntu Packaging Guide to assist me.
The basic premise here is :
Saturday in Town I read that Paul Daniels Had to have 2 fingers reattached following a DIY accident. You can read more about it here:
As we have already made one game about Paul Daniels, Puppet Pizza Potshot Challenge, it seemed only right that we make a new game based on this event.
As such here is our latest game: Give ’em the finger
Everyone here in the Bunker would like to wish Paul a speedy recovery
Saw this on the way to work today.
Science & Technology :
- Kindle platform will become more widespread and ubiquitous – maybe even seeing some home brew apps. I think we’ll see value added applications around the arena of location based bookmarks – maybe educational services (courseware etc) will be deployed using the platform. I also think that this will drive the display technology away from eink back to LCD, and that will be lead by improved battery performance.
- SOPA Bill will pass in a limited form, hamstringing web sites such as that guy with the glasses
- Titaniumbunker will release at least 1 game
Entertainment & Arts
- The Ponds will leave Dr Who this year
- Steven Moffatt will consider jumping ship from Dr Who -but he’ll probably stay on board until after the anniversary (2013).
- Sherlock will continue to be a critical success, and probably win some BAFTAS
- The Continuing trend of lame ass accoustic slow covers (slovers) will continue until the inevitable cover of “Iron Man” by Black Sabbath.
- Following from last years Cpt America will Rule, Avengers will also RULE.
- The Dark Knight will do OK, but not to the levels we’ve previously seen
- Despite the humoungous sums of money and hype, the general consensus for the olympics will be “meh”
Gallifrey – because I’m attending this year will be ace.
