  • Blog Post: The Complete Metropolis

    The most influential SF movie of all time (referenced and ripped off by everyone from Kubrick to Besson) is finally available in a complete edition.  Fritz Lang’s 1927 masterpiece has only been available in incomplete form (and for decades was only available in a heavily re-edited version). Two...
  • Blog Post: Crypto History

    David LeBlanc wrote an excellent overview of encrypted documents in Office.  A long, long time ago, I worked on the Word conversions team (it wasn’t even called Office then).  As part of my job, I wrote a document encryption filter.  More specifically, I wrote (around 1990 or so) a document...
  • Blog Post: What Isn’t TSF good for?

    Well, for one thing, it’s not that great for grabbing the current selection in the foreground application. There are several problems here: 1) You have to get your text service loaded into the target application. This can be slow. 2) Once your text service is loaded, you can only really work...

If you're familiar with A Trip to the Moon , you will find this deeply funny. Hat tip to BT . (If you do have suggestions...
  • Blog Post: LOLCode

I think it's related to the (deservedly) esoteric language valgol , from the 80's. Update: on second thought, some examples might be useful. :) Hello World (in...
  • Blog Post: Desktop Tower Defense

    Enough about TSF for a while. :) I found this amazingly addictive game the other day called Desktop Tower Defense . It's sort of the reverse of Lemmings - instead of saving all the lemmings, you need to squash them all. There's an insane number of levels, and it gets really challenging really fast...
  • Blog Post: Trek can has Cheezburger, too

    And now for something completely unrelated to TSF, or dictation: I'm going to pile onto the incredibly funny Star Trek/ lolcat spoof at granades.com. If you haven't seen it yet, it's pretty darn funny.
