CODeDOC

Golan Levin's Axis Applet can tell you what any three countries have in common, in "Axis of Evil" parody form. (via Leuschke)

It's part of CODeDOC, a commisioned project by the Whitney Artport. Artists were asked to write a program on the theme of "three points" with under 8K of source code. It's a good thing they try to focus on the source itself: I had to read it to figure out how to exit Camille Utterback's piece.

Cylindrix

Back in 1996, I played a fantastic demo for a game called Cylindrix. It was like a cross between BattleZone and Cybersled: AI, multiple ships, special weapons, and team play. Games took place inside a tube, and your ship could alternate between surface-hovering and free flight.

I never found a retail copy of it, but one of the two original programmers has ported Cylindrix to Windows and Linux. Nothing fancy, just the DOS version in a window; but I suggest it for anyone with nostalgia for Atari vector games or DOS classics.
