Weed Calc – Playing with Lazarus Cross Dev

My son was home sick today and I had to take the day off so I decided to take this time to learn a little Pascal and Lazarus cross development. I actually couldn’t think of anything so after running into a forum post about marijuana and amounts the other day I thought, why not write […]

OpenMW (Morrowin)

OpenMW is an attempt to reimplement the popular role playing game Morrowind. It aims to be a fully playable, open source implementation of the game. You must own Morrowind to use OpenMW. To give you a better idea of what this project is about, here are some of the aims for the future of OpenMW: […]

3DO Play Emulator

Update 09/14/2019. I am using RetroArch for all my older games including 3DO. I wrote a quick start guide to run 3DO in RetroArch here. Update 11/03/2015. There is a fork called 4DO which looks really good. I have not been able to get it working in Wine as of yet but if you’re running […]

MyPaint OS X Lion Install via Wineskin or Macports

MyPaint is an open source and free to use natural painting application similar to Painter. It’s really good, but unfortunately there isn’t a native port to the Mac. No fears, thanks to Wineskin it’s trivial to use it on your Macintosh. I created an easy to follow instruction to walk you through the process of […]

Moon Phase Icons, All 24.

I’ve been working on a script to calculate all twenty four moon phases and I needed some images since I was only able to find the common eight phase images. I made a series of individual high resolution PNGs with the Photoshop layered file included if anyone is interested. Download here and share!

pyGUI & wake a sleeping Mac example.

I started playing around with pyGUI a year or two ago, which allows fast gui development on OS X, Windows, and Linux from Python. I’m really liking it. I wrote a liitle app to wake up Macs awhile back and packaged it as a standard Mac bundle. In theory the raw Python should run on […]

Get duplicate files with Python and Objective-C

I put together a little script to find duplicate files using pure Python, and it’s pretty quick too. It comes in handy as I do a lot of graphic work where I end up with tons of files as I work – paranoid I suppose, but losing hours of work has made me this way. […]

Random Number Generator in Python and Objective-C

If you want a simple number generator for say picking Keno, lotto, or self made contests, here’s just how simple it is to do in Python. I was listening to Linux Outlaws awhile back and they were using a couple of different scripts to generate winners for a contest so why not write one real […]

Geektool + Python = Desktop Weather (& moonphase)

Jan. 1, 2019: Some tools you might find useful. https://darksky.net/dev Weather API – free 1000 hits per day. https://pypi.org/project/pylunar/ Moon phase library. Aug. 2016 update: Be aware that Yahoo no longer offers weather data, at least not free. Here is the weather service I’m using: http://openweathermap.org/api Python library to make consumption of the data fairly […]

Editra Launch Objective-C Compiler

As I’m learning Objective-C I find moving between the terminal and my favorite IDE, Editra, kind of annoying. Luckily Editra has a really cool plug-in called Launch that can be configured to run code and display the results within the editor. The only problem is that compiling and running objective-c doesn’t work for a couple […]
