KDE Ambigram

Here is a simple KDE ambigram I made in Inkscape. KDE is a perfect word for ambigramming. Not only is it a rotational ambigram, but a flip one too as well as a mirror ambigram. How cool is that!

LaserMania:It is done

Lasermania is complete! I frantically coded the evening day before yesterday and yesterday morning in a 'flow' state and now Lasermania is working properly with no known bugs right now (though I am sure more will emerge). The mirrors reflect fine, its fast and responsive and about the only thing left is designing fun and interesting levels for it. The first 4 are done but I am trying to think of harder ones. I hope to put it up for download in about a week with an exe for windows users, because this is something I CAN show in school, but only if it can be made into an exe.

Now that I don't have any knew projects its time to start brainstorming for ideas. Also I am hoping to start a new well designed site again on HostMatrix so that my CSS skills don't rust.

Celebrating 10 years of KDE

Recently KDE celebrated 10 years of its existence. And they have been an amazing and fruitful 10 years in which the linux desktop scene has changed radically. KDE has been the major reason for this. In 10 years it has come from a clunky looking blocky desktop to an elegant piece of software which makes proprietary desktops sweat. KDE has been untainted by bureaucracy and controversies, has a good record as far as open source software is concerned and is expected to gather even more accolades with KDE 4. Lets hope it does happen. Three cheers for the KDE team and good luck for KDE 4.

KDE 3.5.5

KDE 3.5.5 is expected to be released tommorrow atleast from what it says in the release announcement which is as of now unpublished and which i got from another blog. The news is already on LXer so lets hope it does happen tommorrow. It will be good if it can boot even faster than right now

LaserMania development

Lasermania finally has something to see moving. Its this game where you have to arrange specific mirrors in proper places to guide a photon from emitter to reciever. Its written in pygame/python. In the screenshot you can see the photon(red dot) to the right. The emitter now fires a photon, drag and drop works(almost), only the mirror logic is left.

Yesterday I had a really bad half and hour when for some reason the very bad thought of leaving school/college after 12th came in my head. After studying there for 5 years, having so many good friends, people you like, a large campus to have fun in, the countless hours spent playing football or doing lots of cool stuff in the labs, it all suddenly came back to me and stayed with me until I slept. And somehow I don't think this is the last time its gonna happen. There is so much that I need to put down here, but I don't think there is any language which can describe everything I want to say. I better stop, before the post starts reminding me of it all over again. Such things happen to me when I suddenly hear or see something which has a really deep connection to some special day at school.
