[Comments] (4) The party! It's ruined!: Who knows why it took me so long to come up with this, but I finally did last night while talking to Sumana (who is coming home tomorrow). Continuing my love of randomly generated entertainment, Dadasaurus Rex does for Dinosaur Comics what Dada Pokey did for Pokey the Penguin (or, to look at it another way, what Pokey the Penguin did for itself). Every minute it puts together a new comic using the hard-to-install-on-non-Debian-systems but wonderful Python Imaging Library.

Eventually this system will expand to consume Dada Pokey and its spin-offs, and I'll also add a Five-Card Nancy style game and more different webcomics, and everything will be happy because I'll have finally gotten rid of that horrible 1998 Dada Pokey code. For now, at least most is happy; love those comics!

Update: in personal communication, Ryan North says Dadasaurus Rex is "FANTASTIC".

I salute you from across the Pacific! *salute*

What does Ryan North think? I can't access his LiveJournal or any other from this free internet kiosk in the Seoul (Incheon) airport. I find myself agreeing with the administrators' decision in this regard. Because I'm bigoted.

Man! I actually have need of image processing like that, soon. If Python makes it that simple, I'm all up ons!

Python makes everything that simple. That's how they get you.
