Flashenv allows you to play flash games without the need of a browser
Comment by crow_riot:
I've made flashenv just out of interest, not to play flash games, but to learn something. Thats the main reason I pick my projects is learning. I wanted to see to see if it's technically possible to take the flashplugin out of the browser and still make it work to play games. So flashenv actually implements parts of the Netscape Plugin API side (which the browser usually provides) to communicate with the flash plugin. Additionally I've added key remapping, which makes it possible to map keys on a per game basis to pandora controls, and a way to redirect drawing to framebuffer for hardware up- and downscaling.
Some of these are a bit out of my area of knowledge, like 3D printer language, Circuit Simulator, Prolog, but they do seem really great tools for anyone who needs such utilities.
Really good to see such varied stuff.
I love Bard Storyteller though, I like to have things read to me Audiobooks over reading. I imagine I'll use this a fair bit and will probably get through more ebook stories now as I tend not to make time to read them but would listen to them whilst doing other things, even when driving to work.
Could do with a few more voice options, though I find the included ladies voice pretty clear to understand. This is a nice little utility to have
I'm going with Bard. I like stuff read back to me. Readplease, Speakonia and balabolka are my favourite softwares for that, but they are all windows (through wine). Bard is exactly what I need to not spend time ogg'ing text.
Pronunciation is ok-ish. I liked the fact that the PND is on the official website of them.
It was really hard to choose. What is not to like about being able to calculate 2^640? Or teaching my kid electricity foundations with the Qucs circuit simulator, or coursera. Of course, there is stuff I feel I can not rate because it goes way above my head, like the 3d printing and a new os... I know that stuff is hard work to get it working, good job all.
