A Genius Icon

Well, I'm not fan of proprietary stuffs and try to avoid writing about them. Yet, I came across a brilliant work when I was looking at this article about Snow Leopard new extra large icons. Of course it's the never getting old campaign of Apple bashing Windows for its stupid bugs in a genius icon, indicating a Windows host on a network. :)

I guess similar icons could be shipped on stock GNU/Linux distributions to add a little more fun.

Highlighting YAML in gedit

I've just written a language spec for YAML so that gedit can highlight it. gedit uses gtksourceview so the highlighting will be available on any application uses the same widget.

Get the latest version from Subversion repository:
svn checkout http://masood.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/yaml-language-spec
or download a tarball from here. Check out the links below if you are also interested in writing a highlighting specification for another language. Links: Language Definition v2.0 Tutorial Language Definition v2.0 Reference
