LambdaMOO, MUDs, and ‘When the Internet Was Young’

Slashdot reader travers_r shares “a peek into the early days of internet culture and multiplayer gaming.” (Apparently this MOO has been running continuously for 28 years.) “From the looks of it, squatters run it now…”

LambdaMOO was different from the earliest MUDs, which were Tolkienesque fantasies — hack-and-slash games for Dungeons & Dragons types with computer access, mostly college students. LambdaMOO was one of the first social MUDs, where people convened largely to play-act society, and what might have been “one of the first MUDs to be run by an adult,” [co-creator Pavel] Curtis believes… Everybody comes through the Coat Closet the first time they visit LambdaMOO, entering the Living Room through a curtain of clothes, like children into Narnia. In between the textual rooms and objects they explore, there’s a faster-moving flow of words, the coursing real-time chatter of LambdaMOO’s other users. This is a Multi-User Domain: a chatroom and

I think IFTTT supports rssCloud

This is why I think that.
When I post an item to my linkblog, it also goes to an RSS feed.
I have an IFTTT app that watches that feed, and when something new shows up posts it to this Twitter account.
I also ping the rssCloud notifier, the one that’s pointed to from the element in the feed. It tells an app how to be notified immediately of an update.
Here’s the thing. The Twitter feed gets the update immediately now. Sometime in the last year (?) or so it started being instantaneous. Unless they’re polling the feed ridiculously often, they must be hooked in through the element.
If they did, I think this is very cool.

Microsoft PowerShell Core For Linux Now Available as a Snap

Canonical announced on Friday that Microsoft’s PowerShell Core is now available on Linux platform as a Snap. From a report: If you aren’t familiar, a Snap is essentially a packaged version of a program that can be easily installed on many Linux distributions. Many see it as the future of Linux, as it has the potential to reduce fragmentation. “Built on the .NET Framework, PowerShell is an open source task-based command-line shell and scripting language with the goal of being the ubiquitous language for managing hybrid cloud assets. It is designed specifically for system administrators and power-users to rapidly automate the administration of multiple operating systems and the processes related to the applications that run on those operating systems,” says Canonical.

Linux Mint developers planning big Cinnamon 4.0 improvements

Linux Mint is one of the most popular Linux-based desktop operating systems for a reason — it’s really good. By leveraging the excellent Ubuntu for its base, and offering a top-notch user experience, success is pretty much a guarantee. While the distribution primarily focuses on two desktop environments — Mate and Cinnamon — the latter is really the star of the show. Cinnamon is great because it uses a classic WIMP interface that users love, while also feeling modern. With Cinnamon 3.8, the Linux Mint Team focused on improving the DE’s performance, and today, the team shares that it is… [Continue Reading]
