 If you want a specific section of my plan, you can use the web interface
  like this:

 Or directly through port 79, if your finger client will let you get away with:
  finger icculus?

This is part of the new, improved IcculusFinger. Yay.

  --The McManagement.

Currently Active Projects:
 (This is in no particular order)

  - The open source incubator.
  - SDL_sound.
  - PhysicsFS.
  - The Build Engine.
  - Toby.
  - Serious Sam.
  - IcculusFinger.
  - UT2003.
  - various Pyrogon things.
  - csmhax0r.
  - IcculusNews.
  - Other stuff.

 I have projects on (some are even mine) that are already
  abandoned. I will have to figure out what to do with them. If you want to
  peek around, look at The CVS Tree.

General stuff:

  A Confederacy of Dunces is pretty good. It's amazing how interesting such
  a unlikable protagonist can be. More on this later.

  For the record, I'm not going to see The Two Towers when it's released. I'll
  probably skip Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire when they get around to
  making it. I'm done with big-screen conversions of classic literature.

  I blame Jack Nicholson.

  I just saw a DVD of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and I'm amazed. Take
  an incredible novel, strip out of the emotion, purpose, motivation, logic,
  and message, and you get this movie. Some of the events kinda resemble
  things that happened in the book, a little, but that's it. Don't get me
  wrong, the acting is good. Nicholson won an Oscar for his portrayal of
  McMurphy, which isn't really fair. He's nothing like the McMurphy of the
  book, and saying, "Hey Jack, could you play a madman for the camera" is
  like asking Gary Condit to murder his interns. Christopher Lloyd and
  Danny DeVito probably had to stretch more, artistically.

  After Skipped Parts, and The Cider House Rules, and now this, it just
  settles it. Good books do not make good movies. The converse is probably
  true, too. If a piece of literature alters your life, don't let someone
  piss on your dreams by filming their watered down, confused version of it.

  Word as bond.

Serious Sam:

 Yes, I'm porting it. No, there's no timeframe right now. Email me with
 questions, and I'll start a FAQ or something.

Current Status:
 Manually merging a three megabyte diff will give you faith in God. It's kinda
  like untossing a salad.

 Those old Screenies.
 Keep me and going.


  (FAQ snipped. Check the archives.)
