Millin began his apparently suicidal serenade immediately upon jumping from the ramp of the landing craft into the icy water. As the Cameron tartan of his kilt floated to the surface he struck up with Hieland Laddie. He continued even as the man behind him was hit, dropped into the sea and sank.
Millin was surprised not to have been shot, and he mentioned this to some Germans who had been taken prisoner.
They said that they had not shot at him because they thought he had gone off his head.
I put together a new version of Tellico, version 2.3, and threw it out for release this past weekend. It is dedicated to my lovely wife, Kim, and we could code-name it, Hot Vegas!
The previous release was back in February, so this one has quite a few bug fixes and some new features. Freebase was added as a data source, which is rather useful. Freebase has tons of info available, and is constantly being updated. It even has some limited comic book information, too.
I messed up some of the links on the download page, so embarrassingly enough, for a few days after the release, the links were broken. Those should all be fixed now!
I also jumped off the deep end and downloaded Choqok and registered on identi.ca which is something like the open source version of Twitter. Much less popular, so by definition, much cooler! Software nerds use it a good bit, I’ve heard. Anyways, I took the handle stephero. (Strike that, since changed to AstroRobby for uniformity with Twitter.)
One of the primary features I’d like to work on for the next version of Tellico is better statistics. I’m looking forward to working with the KDE plot widgets.
