I just read about a few days ago. After finding out that the Nvidia driver was not configured well on my son's computer I managed to make it work. It is really cool. First time he can play such a game. Pure child had a huge disadvantage as his father only runs Linux on the computers so no stolen Windows games at home.

Luckily the game does not work on my notebook - is is not strong enough - so I cannot waste my time on playing.

I need to find other ways.

I seem to be totally distracted from any actual work I should do. I have plenty of project I need to make progress and I think I managed to write two small scripts.

For some time I have been thinking on a game that would be built on to teach children and grownup to program. Something based on the same idea as but with a direct translation to a programming language.
Last week I started to play around with SDL_Perl ( ) and make some sample scripts but then I got stuck as suddenly I realized I'll have to implement such basic widgets as a directory browser widget. It might be a cool project but I am not sure I am ready for such an adventure. So two days ago I decided I try to see if I can draw anything using WxPerl but the documentation is lacking and I did not have an example on how to do things. With the level of distractions I have now it took me the whole day till I managed to write a sample script to drag an image around the window.

Anyway, it is done now and I am heading home.
