See You Space Cowboy…

Oh man. What happened? I got hit by RealLife and got to move, twice, and now I’m working abroad. Of course during that time the company that provides my web-space changed owner and server configurations breaking some of mine. Thus the users saw the backup-site from the year 2012…

I’m semi-hyped about PS4. It has DoAX3, AC7, DooM4. Unfortunately DoAX3 lacks 6 contenders of which 5 were my top favourites. That is the reason why I didn’t pre-order the game (and I don’t even own PS4-system XD). I hope that Team Ninja / KoeiTecmo makes Dead or Alive X3 Ultimate! If Ace Combat 7 is closer to Ace Combat Infinity than AC Assault Horizon, then YES I’ll get that one. I’ve flown countless of hours in infinity. My main craft is F15E -CH-, already at lvl16. I also enjoy the Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-10 (piston fighters FTW!). And doom, DooM, DOOM! Fourth time the charm or how does the saying go? And there’s more, Dynasty Warriors 9, Star Ocean 5, Dragon Quest… Yup, interesting system. Too bad about the costly online multi-player.

ixbar3000 has been evolving too. It has support for ips-patching, so you can use translations and hacks and whatnot! There’s also a huge NES metadatabase that I try to include in the next release.

I’ve been seriously thinking of ditching this wordpress-thing. Sure it’s easy to post stuff, but I lose a lot of control and I don’t really post all that much. We’ll see.

Bash: Checking if a website has changed via terminal

Terminalicon

Bash scripting yay!

I have few sites that I like, who doesn’t get updated content regularly. I have a habit of keeping these pages open in a tab in my browser. So I created a simple bash script that lets me display whether that site has changed on terminal.

 

Requirements: common unix-tools like: bash, curl, md5sum…
