HACK LIKE A PROGRAMMER IN MOVIES AND GAMES! GeekTyper was inspired by the various media where hacking is usually portrayed incorrectly. Simply randomly mash your keyboard and code will be simulated on your screen.
This is hilarious! :-) I’ve had way to much fun poking keys while trying it out…
Of course there’s also a screensaver that you can install. Recommended for office use. Not recommended on airplanes and other public spaces.
I’ve just checked with a real person. I’ve used the Visual Studio skin and typed away. Oh the aww.
Back then I already wrote about the Panic status board which gives a great looking example of a status display. Now there is a software from the company Panic which offers anyone the ability to create such a status board. It’s for iOS and looks awesome!
The other day I found out that there is an actual hackerspace in Bamberg – the city where I work and live nearby. For some strange reason it never occurred to me to search for an hackerspace nearby. But now since the 29c3 is at the gates I found them on the “Congress everywhere” pages (beware, it’s having a hard time right now).
Since I just found it and christmas duties take their toll I wasn’t able to go by and talk to the people there in person – i’ve just contacted them over their IRC channel (#backspace on freenode). Eventually I will have time to visit them and I’ll have a report up here then.
For the time being enjoy their website and the projects they already did. Apparently there are some very interesting LED lighting experiments.
