Cube is the original game that started it all. Though it has been surpassed in almost every way by Cube 2, it is a game in its own right. Most importantly, it comes with over 100 (!) maps, most of which are not available in Cube 2, with extensive single and multi player content.

Viva la Amiga!

With Amiwest 2011 coming around the corner I thought I would do a little more to share about my favorite computer, the Amiga. Born 1985, the Amiga 1000 was an amazing achievement for a small band of software and hardware hackers. It featured color screens and 16 bit sound back when MAC's where grey scale and PC's green screens. In addition to having great looks the Amiga also had a classy personality with full multitasking and DMA between a custom chipset. DMA means Direct Memory Access and that one of the BIG secrets of how it worked.

Janus-UAE v1.1 released

Janus-UAE v1.1 released

You will be able to download it from the

AROS archives/aminet, when the upload

is approved by the maintainers.

New features:

  • thanks to Krzysztof Smiechowicz, this is the first version, which can run AROS/m68k
  • added extended rom selection possibility in the gui
  • comes with AROS/m68k

There were some bug reports for v1.0, so this release

tries to fix them, mainly:

Long way..The wayback

Long way..

The wayback machine helped me finding, when the UAE bounty has been opened. Quite a while ago:

November 8, 2003. Two new bounties, #7 (UAE intergration) and #8 (CD ISO Improvements) have been added to the TeamAROS Bounty list.

Bounty completed!Power2people agreed

Bounty completed!

Power2people agreed, that the bounty is completed, so I put a label v1.0 on Janus-UAE and released it at the AROS-archives. V1.0 is just a relabeled and recompiled v0.9, so there are no bug fixes/new features in there.

I already received the bounty money, which leaves me to thank all donators. The money will be spent for our next family vacation.

Learning all about Linux schedulers...

I've recently been looking in to the process scheduler linux uses. I found a good write up here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Process_scheduler which includes a list by kernel version. The process scheduler is different from the IO scheduler and much harder the change.

Here is the linux scheduler history from the wikipedia:

Linux pre-2.6 Multilevel feedback queue
Linux 2.6-2.6.23 O(1) scheduler
Linux post-2.6.23 Completely Fair Scheduler

The devil is in the details

I often use that phase.  I use it cause it is a good phase, simple but powerful.  In gaming life I recently found my character dropped to 0 hit points.  It was looking like a TPK (Total Party Kill) as I was the healer and being down makes it really hard to heal folks.  So I was looking at my character sheet looking for a way out and noticed that my armor gave me resist 5 psychic.  Turned out I took 3 points of psychic before the blow that took me to 0.

Documentation.. is always

Documentation

.. is always boring to do. I did a quick guide how to install AmigaOS3 with all required packages and configurations to get Coherency working in j-uae:

This took more time, than I thought, but it might be a starting point for some people.
