new code browser

as a few of you may have seen, a couple of svn repositories have been served up here on http://hashbangbash.com/ for a while.
like

most notably ‘/pub/src/’ since its where the SlackBuilds and kde projects are kept.

WELL, there is now http://hashbangbash.com/viewcvs/ to more easily browse and review these repos. it will default to /pub/src/, but the others can be chosen from the menu if the upper right side.

cheers

NAME CHANGE !!!

due to my cheapness in many respects, i have stuck with batts.mine.nu for years. as many people could deduce, it is a freely availble deal through dyndns.com. being so, many people can register whatever they want.
lately there were a sweep of Russian hackers and phishers doing mis-deeds. this has pretty well jammed up many things for my site (i.e., search engines dropping me, email servers bouncing me, and even my own firefox warns me against visiting my site 😉
SO,
officially, i’m rebranded as hashbangbash.com
i set up a mod_rewrite web forward to allow the search engines to re-index
after a while of that, i will remove all ties that i have to batts.mine.nu, in the meanwhile i will be attempting to update anything that links, to instead point it to {blog,webmail,music,ftp,www}.hashbangbash.com

thanks all!

thank you Randy Pausch!

i recently watched a lecture of Randy Pausch, his last lecture, and followed up by looking into the Alice Project that he was a major part of. after a bit of playing with it, i have put together packaging scripts for slackware for it, Available here, and you can just download the slackpkg of it here. (notice alice is dependent on jre-1.5, which i have available for download as well)

cheers, and i’m glad there are great people out there in the world
