Movie Reviews

theSamo's Cacophony - Sat, 10/01/2009 - 3:37pm
  • How to lose friends and alienate people: Simon Pegg's major selling out feature is about selling out and not so bad. It would've been good if it escaped Hollywood Romantic Comedy tropes. Thumbs Up!
  • Burn After Reading: more like burn after watching. big letdown. Thumbs Down!
  • Seven Pounds: really well-made. concept is great. but if you catch on to what's going on early it becomes a real bore. Thumbs Up!
  • The Wrestler: this one is slow. but keeps you on your toes.

HOWTO: Install Neverwinter Nights Deluxe Edition on Ubuntu Hardy with latest patches

theSamo's Cacophony - Sat, 19/07/2008 - 6:58pm

So I bought NWN: Deluxe the other day, which came in 2 paks totalling 5 CDs; 3 for NWN itself, and 2 expansions (Shadows of the Undertide, Hordes of the Underdark).

Now the installation was pretty painful so i thought I'd document it.  read more »

I <3 Vim

theSamo's Cacophony - Thu, 22/05/2008 - 8:50pm

So after using cream for a while i decided to make the jump to vim. I decided to switch to PIDA (embedding gvim as editor) and it turned out a worthy replacement for Eclipse as an IDE for work stuff. Honestly i have little RAM and lots of pride to use Eclipse fulltime.

So getting vim to play well with python is not that easy, but after some trial and error I have a fairly well-functioning setup.

The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.

cream with some of gDevilspie code.

Tales From A Faraway Land

theSamo's Cacophony - Mon, 16/07/2007 - 1:53pm

Note: I haven't blogged all through the summer vacation. which strikes me as bizzare... I changed the theme to one that hopefully won't break as often and i'm still figuring out how to get rid of spam...

I started the post in early july after I got back from there. It was supposed to have "Tales..". Of course, now I can't think of any tales. So I hope photos are enough :)

UPDATE: the game had been forked and made playable by mhlmi. Some of the rules had changed, also dev back-end (it now runs on ruby/Qt4).

A minimal bullet-dodging game. Too bad I currently can't finish it.


You control two sqaures(simultaneously, their movement is mirror image). There are only two movement keys. UP and DOWN. Red dodges bullets, while white absorbs them and converts the energy to make a bomb. you have 3 lives.

The Great Update, Pain of Salvation and other shit.

  • About 8 days ago I started updating my aging gentoo box. With 559 packages to go and a P3 1Ghz 128MB SDRAM machine. I'm proud to say it's almost over.

    • That Awn guy is awesome. check his newest ideas. It's not something I'd use, but hell, it looks awesome.
    • Meanwhile, i'm tempted to say i'd like to play with Clutter soon. :)
