Pygame Is Leading Me To Python

I can’t help but talk about how great I think my highly modified version of Ubuntu is with my friends. I’ve got virtualization galore, a great development environment with tool chains for every architecture you would want, a nice blend of Gnome and KDE apps, good security and just the right mix of desktop effects.

Fun In Singapore

Now that I’ve had enough time to recover from our recent vacation, I may as well write about it. We took a well deserved family break this past weekend for a short holiday in Singapore. Like most vacations that we ┬átake, it was too short. My general rule for travel is, plan to spend at […]
