Went to the South Bay Indie Game Dev Meetup tonight... pretty cool.

http://www.meetup.com/southbaygamedev/events/229075124/

It was at the Seven Stars Bar and grill in San Jose, which was a Star Wars themed bar.

A few more improvements to the speech/language recognition system in Space Nerds In Space:

Heavy metal octopi, that is all.

Figured out how to make a custom vocabulary for pocketsphinx, which makes it work considerably better.  Also wrote some code to transform written out numbers like 'two hundred fifty two" to "252" which enables quite a lot.

Space Nerds In Space got mentioned in this linux podcast at 54:30

http://linuxlugcast.com/?p=521


The guy talking says it seems "like an exact open source clone" of Artemis: Starship Bridge Simulator, which it really isn't. The basic idea of the game is the same as Artemis, but SNIS no more a clone of Artemis than Hercule Poirot is a clone of Sherlock Holmes.

A nice set of notes on the new Google SRE book:

Notes on Google's Site Reliability Engineering book. The book starts with a story about a time Margaret Hamilton brought her young daughter with her to NASA, back in the days of the Apollo program. During a simulation mission, her daughter caused the mission to crash by pressing some keys that ...

I have added some primitive natural language support into Space Nerds In Space.  Now you can pretty much control the ship via the Comms station just by typing English at it, or if you can hook a speech recognition widget to a named pipe, just by talking at it.

Ok, this is awesome.  It is very good to see this game continuing to develop.

New Tesla revealed... not sure I like the sort of vestigial "place where a grill should be"...  Took a (very crude) stab at gimping it into something more "natural" (but what I came up with has less character, so not sure it's an improvement.)

I wonder what your change does to the aerodynamics.

Story
Introduction
Disclaimer: The opinions I express here on google+ are my own, may change over time, and are not the opinions of my employer (whether my employer's opinions are coincident with what I express here or not.)

I'm a computer programmer by trade.  I work on a couple drivers in the linux kernel, and also have a few projects on sourceforge (and a few on github )

I'm also into art, and do a little painting, and music, I play electric guitar though not as well as I'd like. 

Oh, I've built a cyclekart.  I've also been bitten by the 3d printing bug, and have made a few things.

I have a blog called Scary Reasoner, which is about various things, but notably, it's about atheism and religion, but other than that it is much the same as what I post on google+.  

Currently for fun I've been building on a multiplayer networked 3D starship simulator game I'm calling Space Nerds In Space in C, no network libraries (well, glibc), no 3D graphics libraries (well, gtk), without even *fonts*, all from scratch, just for the hell of it.

Can't recommend this place. Ordered hot and sour soup and thai red curry chicken. The soup looked fine, was slightly hot, slightly sour, but *extremely* salty, with pretty much no other flavors present, or they were entirely masked by the salt. The curry sauce was very thin and watery, and not very spicy at all. There was something a little strange about the chicken I couldn't immediately put my finger on. It was kind of chunks, but kind of flaked apart almost like fish, and kind of too salty. Then it hit me what it was... I think they used *canned chicken*! Or if not, they somehow managed to make the chicken into a close approximation of canned chicken. Surprisingly terrible. Martin Yan should come down there and either straighten them out or close them down, because they aren't helping his reputation *at all*.
