I just learned about Adobes “Mars” project via John Dowdell:

Mars is the code name for a project developing an XML-based representation of PDF documents.


Reading the Mars FAQ on Adobe Labs, i found this little gem:

Can an end-user create a Mars document?

Anyone over the age of 18, or minors with parental permission, can create a Mars document.


1337! FC64 demo updated.

In celebration of todays release of the Flash Player 9 for Linux beta, i finally updated the demo of FC64, our C64 emulator for Flash Player 9.

Some time ago i implemented support for sprites and the lo-res bitmap mode, so quite some more games work on FC64 now, including Elite (see screenshot below – i added it to the demo), Fort Apocalypse, Frogger, Donkey Kong, and a whole bunch of others.

Also, Voidrunner renders properly now, including the sprites in its intro.
