TypeScript: Microsoft's Replacement For JavaScript

Nahooda Object Pascal (488 comments)

I wish the browser makers would replace that annoying JavaScript language with the elegant, nowadays rarely used (Object) Pascal. Then I'd love to work on AJAX web applications.

Amarok 2.6 Music Player Released

Nahooda XMMS (100 comments)

I still use the Winamp-style XMMS 1.2.x. It's fast, slick, easy-to-use and intuitive. However, it seems to be from another era. Since the rise of iTunes, many audio players tend to become huge software packages with library functionality and dozens of other unnecessary functions like showing covers. All of them support that "You-don't-have-to-know-where-you're-files-are-we-will-find-them-for-you" thinking which is aimed at totally inexperienced computer users who don't get the concept of files being organised in folders.

Another more modern Winamp-style player is Audacious but it doesn't seem to work properly on my workstation. Luckily, there always seems to be someone who creates XMMS 1.2.x packages for current Linux distributions.

Programming Prodigy Arfa Karim Passes Away At 16

Nahooda Ascension (536 comments)

And if i go,
while you're still here...
Know that I live on,
vibrating to a different measure
-behind a thin veil you cannot see through.
You will not see me,
so you must have faith.
I wait for the time when we can soar together again,
-both aware of each other.
Until then, live your life to its fullest.
And when you need me,
Just whisper my name in your heart, ...I will be there.

Amiga Demonstration Helps Win Against Patent Troll

Nahooda A working Amiga (239 comments)

I read the article and I'm a bit stunned about the way she writes about a working Amiga like if it was something really special and really rare. You will get thousands of working Amigas over here in Europe from EBay. I still own one (Amiga 500) and a couple of my friends still own their Amigas, too - working of course.
Was the Amiga really that rare in the United States?

Tenori-on - Music instrument for non-musicians

Nahooda Nahooda writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Nahooda writes "The article is in German, maybe there's an english article somewhere on the web. The Tenori-on is a (portable) music instrument developed by Yamaha. It's aimed at inexpierenced non-musicians. The user doesn't need any musical skills or previous knowledge. The futuristic design of the Tenori-on has virtually nothing in common with conventional music instruments. It has been designed by japanese media artist Toshio Iwai"
