Tose - Gaming's Little Secret

nachmore Now all we need to find is Brain... (12 comments)

Actually, I reckon these guys deserve a whole lot of kudos! By staying out of the spotlight they manage to focus on the important stuff - making the games that we love to play!

Unfortunately in today's world most companies still believe that if you are unknown you cannot succeed, something that Tose have proven as wrong. I wish that there were more companies (especially in the gaming sector) that would be more interested in producing amazing, immersing titles without hunting around after the fame and glory which usually lead to less-than-optimum games.

Google Search Categorising Every Site as Harmful!

nachmore writes "Looks like even Google aren't immune to very large bugs in their core offerings — Google Search is marking all sites returned by any random search as "Harmful" — even their own pages! Clicking through to a result displays the scary warning page, while attempting to view further details results in a "temporary server error". Could further errors like this drive consumers away to alternative search engines?"

nachmore writes "Microsoft Australia is trying a new angle to introduce (and convert) more users to it's Live search — searching for "footy tips" in Google brings up a Sponsored Link to Microsoft's live.com! Not only that, but when you follow the link, MS Live displays a message wondering why you even thought to use your original search engine! Screenshots and a little more info here."

7. Windows crashes an estimated 25m times a day.
Happy Birthday Microsoft, here's to the next 191,825,000,000 crashes!"

NASA is reporting that Atlantis is "in good shape" after it's successful launch today. ABC News reports that the launch was a "majestic" one, which is appropriate considering that this really was it's last chance at launch. You will all recall that the ship suffered several delays on it's launch towards a construction mission at the ISS.
Good luck boys (and girl)!

nachmore writes "I've been programming on linux for a while now, always content to use vi for my editing and any debugger tools out there (gdb for C, C++ etc.). As part of my SoC project I was working on Thunderbird which was my first huge project on linux and I found that although shell-based tools can do the job, they lack in easy project managment, ease of debugging etc. I've only ever programmed with a GUI on Windows — and I have to admit that I find Dev Studio to be one of the few programs that Microsoft seems to have gotten (nearly) right. I've played around with eclipse but find it's C/C++ support still lacking.

So what GUIs would you recommend for linux? I would like something with debugging (step through etc.) support, CVS access and of course, support for large projects (e.g. Mozilla) and especially good support for C/C++. Is there anything really good out there, or is vi the way to go?"
