OOI... does that implement a ray tracer?

Does VO source code look like starships?

omg! was not expecting that!

it even compiles under cygwin! so you doze folk don't have to miss out!

Heh, I wasn't expecting that either. I forgot cygwin has terminal emulation.

Antz: (to both questions) no, it doesn't. (I'm also going under the assumption that your earlier question was facetious)

Anyway, the VO source code looks like this:

Oh, and I want that valk!

That code eats 100% of both my CPUs, making it officially both evil and ridiculously cool.
Sep 29, 2006 a1k0n link
That code actually only eats one of your CPUs, while X and your xterm or whatever eats the other.

In any case it's not supposed to be cool or evil, it's supposed to be funny! LAUGH!

Cygwin can run almost anything these days! Slightly over a year ago I was stuck on Windows for 2 months (the only way of me getting to the Internet was to use a certain rare variant of Lucent Winmodem that did not work under Linux at all (was not a "standard" winmodem)) and I decided to make Windows usable. I managed to replace the Windows shell with X, to produce

when the computer booted. Later I also made it have wallpaper, compiled dillo, xmms, and ported Gaim to it, but by then it lost the "wow, it is windows!" feel since for all practical purposes it was a usable computer (ran sshd, mounted ~ from nfs, etc.). I called it GNU/Windows.

Now that you released the VO source code you will probably get a flood of patches! :) ...and yes, it made me laugh, you succeeded. I also thought I would never see the day of VO running on an ipod... you wait till I get hold of a spare box, you will get a GNU/Hurd build as well!

Heh, sorry, i was bored, I compiled it under ReactOS! And well, it kinda works on WindowsXP! Now that is good news!
