What I've been working on....

Rewriting Laser Tag software from the Graffiti Research Labs. Below are some pics of it in action from last night's fun in Marion Square:

More pics here and here.

The Nullsoft Scriptable Install System (NSIS) is one of the easiest and best ways to package software for a windoze installation. This said, I couldn't find any easy examples for creating a script for the installation of a Python package. Took a little while, but I was able to create a rudimentary, working, generalized installation script. You can check out the NSIS Python package installation script in the GOGrapher SVN repository here.

Scientology Comes to Charleston

Compare this logo (from the corner of President Street and Spring Street):

with this one:

Look pretty similar? The second one is the logo of Scientology's Sea Org (their navy). According to L. Ron Hubbard, "the Sea Org symbol, adopted and used as the symbol of a Galactic Confederacy far back in the history of this sector, derives much of its power and authority from that association." Makes sense.

What doesn't make sense is the billion year contract members of the Sea Org have to sign. I wonder if this means the Scientologists are moving into the local contracting market.
