Ruby event-loop announced

Posted at 2005-08-30

A few days ago, Daniel Brockman announced event-loop, his Ruby package that implements signal handling, IO events, timers and of course a main loop. He also uploaded a gem, so I removed mine from

XMMS2-Scrobbler news

Posted at 2005-08-24

XMMS2-Scrobbler has been reworked in the last few days.

Rejoice, it now doesn't depend on Ecore and Ruby-Ecore anymore. Instead, it uses the event-loop Ruby package. Since that one isn't officially released yet, I put up a preliminary Ruby gem over here.

Also, some parts of the code now use multi-threading, which means that submission will work much better now.

XMMS2-Scrobbler is now hosted in a git repository on

Redact 0.1.3

Posted at 2005-06-14

Whoops, I broke Redact in the 0.1.2 release: if you didn't supply the output filename, Redact would crash.

I just released Redact 0.1.3, which fixes that error.

Redact 0.1.2

Posted at 2005-06-11

So Redact 0.1.2 has been unleashed.

The most important change is probably that the --image_dir and --font_dir command line switches now actually work :) I also fixed a number of minor bugs, see NEWS in the online documentation for details.

Ruby-EET 0.1.3

Posted at 2005-06-02

I just released Ruby-EET 0.1.3.

There aren't any new features, but I rewrote most of the Object serializing code in C, which resulted in a nice speed-up. I don't have any fancy benchmarks though, since I just tested with Redact.

Back from RockHard Festival

Posted at 2005-05-15

I went to RockHard Festival yesterday, mainly to see Sonata Arctica and Amon Amarth.

Before Sonata Arctica played, we watched the gigs of Ensiferum and Samael. Ensiferum were great, good music and a cute keyboarder <3

I only heard a couple of songs Samael so far, so I was very impressed of Samael's performance. A friend of mine described their music as a kind of 'black metal techno' and that's pretty close. The band is pretty sick, but in a nice way :D I guess I'll have to get some of their records.

Sonata Arctica's performance was fn amazing, they had a good setlist and the band really seemed to have enjoyed the gig :)

Here's their setlist (order b0rked most likely):

  • Misplaced
  • Blinded No More
  • Victoria's Secret
  • My Land
  • Broken
  • FullMoon
  • 8th Commandment
  • Black Sheep
  • Don't Say A Word
  • The Cage
  • Vodka Song

Man, after that gig I'd like to have spent some time in an oxygen tent :D

30 minutes later, Amon Amarth entered the stage and the crowd went totally crazy! Their performance was awesome, the setlist was pretty good as well:

  • An Ancient Sign Of Coming Storm
  • For The Stabwounds In Our Backs
  • The Pursuit Of Vikings
  • Bleed For Ancient Gods
  • The Fate Of Norns
  • Bloodshed
  • Masters Of War
  • Where Silent Gods Stand Guard
  • Victorious March
  • Death In Fire

I had just hoped they'd play The Sound Of Eight Hooves, The Last With Pagan Blood or Once Sealed In Blood :)

After these two gigs I was fn tired, so I didn't stand in the before the stage when Children Of Bodom played, but watched them from the seats :D

Towards the end of the show, it began to rain and we left without seeing the final band, Jon Oliva's Pain. Neither me nor my friends knew him anyway (besides the fact that he's the singer of Savatage :D).

vrln on #edevelop asked me for a new Euphoria shot, and here it is. I recently begun implementing a playlist, so far, it looks pretty nice :D

Redact code and Embryo snippets

Posted at 2005-04-20

In case you're already using Redact to write Edjes (and you know you should!), here's a nice way to properly hilight inlined Embryo code in Vim.

Grab the ruby-small syntax file, and copy it to ~/.vim/syntax.

Now, whenever you put some Embryo/Small code in an Edje, do it like this:

blah.script =<SMALL
/* Embryo code goes here */

That is, put the Embryo code into an heredoc that uses "SMALL" as the delimiter. If you set the syntax for the buffer to "ruby-small" now, the code inside the heredoc will be formatted as Embryo code :)
