A PlayStation 2 controller macro device.

This is a middleman between a standard PlayStation 2 controller and the console. It can also be chained through to a USB adapter or other such device, to ultimately let an original PS2 controller work with a computer.

A host of features to manage processes, such as changing CPU priority. It has lots of automated magic for system happiness. I use it for its control of the CPU's power profile, making this the equivalent of Linux's cpufrequtils.

Highly recommended.

Timeline - (1999 book) cover

Entertainment > Reading >

(on Wikipedia)

Archaeologists discover the site they're working on is surrounded by land owned by their funder, a rich technology company, which is even more interested in it than they.

A riveting book that escalates into a great pace by its middle, and had me turning pages until I finished that latter half in one afternoon. The end chapter is an embarrassingly-bad wrap-up though, which was saddening, but it did not ruin the story.

Highly-recommended. This book has turned me back into a reader.

Based on Chrome's open-source components (Chromium), but with real-browser functionality added.

Chocolatey: babun
https://babun.github.io/

A customized Cygwin for Linux on Windows: Zsh, Bash, git and other Linux software, all pre-configured.

Can install other software provided by Cygwin.

  • 712, 774 - apparently abandoned, last updated 2016-05-02.

    • The main contributors are still alive, I see them posting on their Twitters.
    • I'll likely move to pure Cygwin, and get my common applications installed. That should be easy, but who the hell knows with Linux.

My configuration specific to Babun is currently scattered throughout my git repository, just findinall Babun (using my findinall() )

As Good as It Gets - (1997 movie) poster

Entertainment > Movies >

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119822/

A quirky and grating writer finds himself pulled into the lives of ordinary people.

A really great, well-rounded, unique movie, especially for guys, as it has a single moment of clarity that will help them understand women.
