Notices for 28th August 2008 to 28th March 2008

Thursday, 28th August 2008

A random glance at the Geek Culture forums serendipitously drew my attention to a fantastic remake of the game Gorillas built using Flash. It’s pixel-perfect, sounds good, is Open Source, and runs on almost any desktop computer regardless of operating system. Hats off to Ricky Road for a sterling effort.

I’ve been inspired to update the Gorillas Deluxe manual in HTML for much easier digestion, and I have made a few improvements to it at the same time. The game itself remains the same for now, at version 2.2.

Jonathan Livni alerted me to the fact that Batch-RegEx, when told to process an entire folder, would end up processing the backup files it created too and then fall short of finishing the job. This fault is now rectified; while I was at it, I adjusted the program to report back on the relative path of items within folders to clarify which file the program is referring to.

Jonathan also reports a problem with global flags, but I’ve never experienced any such problem. I would be curious to know whether anyone else has experienced difficulties with them.

A new HTTP Werkzeug alpha out, which remedies a stupid bug where it would crash if the settings were not found (in particular, installing it onto a new computer) or, theoretically, if they were very outdated. I have also added support for the full range of redirect status codes, instead of merely the common ones of 301 and 302.
