Given all its references to current/recent political events, I wonder how well House of Cards will age as a series.

Interesting things one can find when using Xwayland: context menu on context menu. That cannot happen on "normal X" as the pointer is grabbed and Qt handles everything internally, but with Xwayland there is no grab any more. I just find it awesome to uncover such findings.

contextception? I want it to become more and more adcamce the more menus you open so we end up to have pure assembly in the 100th menu :-)

Looks like dual monitor, under some configurations, is broken in #archlinux   currently. I fixed it by installing xf86-input-evdev-git.

Well deserved!
CITIZENFOUR, Laura Poitras' riveting documentary about Edward Snowden's efforts to shed light on gross surveillance abuses by the United States government and its partners, just won the 2014 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. Tonight's Oscar win recognizes not only the incredible cinematography of Poitras, but also her daring work with a high-stakes whistleblower and the journalism that kick-started a worldwide debate about surveillance ...

Sometimes +Adrian Kennard's posts really depress me and make me want to put my fingers in my ears and go "la-la-la can't hear you I live in a magical world that's better than that".
We really are hitting a problem with the "Powers that be" having no clue about the way any technology works. I have commented as to how the "Snooper's charter" is so out of date already, but it gets worse. I was chatting to s...

Today I'd like to share the project I've been working on for almost six months: Fireplace, my Hearthstone simulator in Python.

This turned into a full-blown reimplementation of the game logic pretty fast.  As it turns out, working on this has been the most enlightening and rewarding experience I've ever had in programming. Hearthstone is a very well designed game with very few hacks (much unlike other Blizzard games) and extremely logical rules it has a lot of respect for.
Working on this, more than anything else, has been the most fun I've ever had working on a project. I'll continue working on it until it is a powerful contender to the original Hearthstone implementation and I hope this can interest some people.

It's a reimplementation of Hearthstone's rules and logic, with a public api. So it can indeed be used for theorycrafting and testing purposes like you mention (many of them I actually got to talk about before).

Most immediately, a command line interface for it would be useful but I don't have time to work on that on top of the core. I'm open to contributions - I also contacted the guys working on Hearthbreaker, see what they say about theirs. :)
