  • Cool ^_^ "create the chat server on this machine and set it to listen to 3333 TCP port: nc -l 3333 On the other end, connect to the server with the following: nc 3333 In this case, the keyboard acts as the stdin. Anything you type in the server machine’s terminal is transfered to the client machine and vice-versa."

  • Interestingly, techcrunch says that "the Twitter-based game Spymaster went from a private alpha, to insanely popular, to feeling a full rush of backlash in about 3 days." But I hear that people who signed up today don't appear to have gotten any direct messages at all from the new spymaster twitter game. And indeed, I see that at 6.35 est spymaster has announced they've been unable to send dms "for the last 15 hours" -- seems like they've been getting slammed today. Promotional games like this hark back to the "cloudbreakers" online treasure hunt that was part of the early promotion push for Stephen Spielberg's AI way back when. Of course text-based gaming on the network goes back much further than that but, there is a newer and very interesting measure of "difficulty for games:" how interesting does a game have to be, for me to be willing to expose my private social network to to that game?
  • "Changes on PF Usage can be an indicator of memory allocation inefficiency." Crockford also provides a purge() function which he recommends to run before removing an element. Does jQuery contain this?
