In celebration of the NewsBruiser release (candidate), I totally redid the devel page, limiting the
scope to programs that somebody else might actually find useful or interesting; adding
the McSweenifier, eCow, and Helm to the list; adding dates to everything;
and rewriting many of the program descriptions.

I wrote the technical
document, so all the docs I was planning to write, I've written.
I've made some changes but they're too minor to go into a release candidate.
I'm waiting for Josh's experiences getting NewsBruiser set up and using it
before I call it done.

Includes "Dude, Where's My X?" and "Tonight's Episode". That should
do it for a while.

Where do I go for an online store which is like Amazon, yet which is not evil like Amazon?

Also, what are the chances of obtaining a DVD player which, once I
purchase it, becomes my faithful servant and does not mantain secret
sympathies with the people who make the DVDs? (eg. by
playing the region coding switcheroo on me or disabling my fast-forward
button at inopportune moments) If I were going to buy a DVD player,
should I buy now before said sympathies in new units become stronger?

I saw Don Hopkins' pie menu stuff years ago and I thought at the time that it was a good idea which would never be implemented anywhere people would use it. But I'd forgotten about the game as introducer of new UI concepts, and it turns out that Hopkins was paid to implement pie menus for The Sims. Way to go! I am serious in my felicitations; I for one know that if I'd spent fifteen years pushing some new concept and finally gotten it into something as popular as The Sims, I'd be real happy.
Don also has a Stanislaus Lem page.
