Sat Jan 11 2003 13:59 Software Roundup:
A longer game roundup coming soon. Here are three interesting non-game programs I saw on Freshmeat:
- Bright Noise,
a counter-Tempest program for the terminal. Has the side effect of
making your terminal look like a pointless special effect out of a
movie, which raises the intruiging conjecture that many of those
pointless special effects are actually counter-Tempest measures (think
about it; can you ever make anything out on those screens?).
- soundmosaic is
the aural equivalent of a photomosaic program. It doesn't work as well
with sound, because sound has a time dimension, but it's a cool idea.
- Diet Monger Ass
Kicker is a nice-looking interface to the USDA nutrition database.
I actually think the nutrition database is the star of this entry, and
that DMAK is only along for the ride because of its cool name. DMAK is
written in a programming language called Euphoria, which I'd never
heard of before.
