tribblecontroller
So custom game controllers are getting pretty common ... at least in the console space.
Guitars, Dance mats, drums, Wii, ...
My own take on this:

gameidea
scifi, space: capital ships ... we've attacked them, flown them, built them, ran around in them ...
Usually in different games though and I've yet to play a game that unifies these aspects.
filesystem
been thinking a bit about what a filesystem would look like if I were ever to attempt to design one.
alsa
had some problems with alsa on my fedora core 4 system after updating:
ALSA lib control.c:739:(snd_ctl_open_noupdate) Invalid CTL default
manually compiling alsa-libs fixed it

wget404
wget obviously isn't able to download an 404 error page. curl can.
roxen_fedora4
encountered some problems when compiling roxen on fedora core 4: fixes:
clone
i guess it's just too compelling a plot device but i'd really wish movies (e.g. aeon flux, the island) would stop mystifying clones/dna ...
epaper
so when we all get epaper-like displays that require power not to maintain their image but to change it ...
will be fun witnessing a power outage in an office with everyone unable to hide their solitaire
rosegarden
wanted to give rosegarden a try.
encountered a few hurdles trying to get it installed on fc4.
buildlog
would be interesting to have a log of successful/failed builds of ones coding projects with timestamp. might show interesting connections between time spent coding and concentration decrease. should look into getting scons to do that. might even exist already.
bookmarklet
bookmarklets are kinda fun to play around with.
should be possible to write to encrypt/decrypt messages on webpages ... for use in forums, webmail etc.
might give that a try ...
sdl
If you ever get the SDL app error message "Unable to open a console terminal" ...
coldwar
demo of a stealth-action game for linux got released: http://www.coldwar-game.com/

statistics
deco would be nice to have a site that allows people to collaboratively keep statistics about something.
average delay on a trainline - chances of being caught dodging the bus-fare in city X ...

google_sun
deco map sites like google's and others should provide a function to shade the image based on the current ( or specified) sun position
enemylines
hosting a friend's game: enemy lines until it's accepted by sourceforge.
sweetcode
osh - Object SHell ... interesting concept ... wished there was happening more in that direction. there is a lot of room for new ideas in the realm of clis.

tailor
just a little tale about change

a small custom tailor i often passed by
wings
deco decided to dabble a bit with wings3d again.
itcl
good old [incr tcl] isn't as easy to get on RH as it used to. no rpms in sight.
mmog_games
massively multiplayer game worlds favour spending all your free time with them. will their rise eventually push traditional game titles into a niche role with mmog assimilating them ?
waking_up
just wanted to share my fascination with a certain sensation: the confusion one sometimes feels when waking up regarding the orientation of ones body.

prog_manifest
decoration this (seen here) is kinda neat. took me a bit to get it running though.
just in case it helps someone:

trash
two news items:
  • the case where it was declared ok for police to search your trash
  • an analysis done on the water of the Po river indicating higher than expected cocaine abuse in the area.
quite obvious what to expect next:
maze
the toy so i got this little plastic toy ... came as a surprise with something.
history
decoration history books, webpages about history, wikipedia etc. ... all fine

what I'd like to have is something a bit different though ...

mail_from_the_past
decoration

Not so long ago I was a frequent user of the "at" command on my server for a probably not so common task: Sending mail to myself on some random point in the future ... 400 days +-200 or something.

subway_periscope
decoration

For some time now we have those subway trains with tv screens here in vienna. They show news, ads n stuff. It's really only a small compensation for not being able to look out of the window (and see something remotely interesting).

reincarnation
decoration

So this friend of mine told me about the dream she had. About a former life of hers. This made me wonder about a few things...

start
guess it's up and running now. i kinda like jpeg compression artifacts.
