This is the home page of Dion Nicolaas. It contains pointers to the
other web pages I've created.
- The NetHack Index at Erebus
The NetHack Index contains all places on the web I know that have
original contents on the subject of NetHack, a so-called roguelike
game. This new and improved version allows visitors to contribute.
- Wizard's Apprentice
Batch files can be very useful, but it is hardly possible to add a nice
user interface to them. Meet the Wizard's Apprentice, that can present
dialog boxes in wizard-style from a batch file, and make batch
programming so much more useful.
- White screen
Sometimes I write articles about assorted, usually technology-oriented
subjects. Here you can find these.
- Printable Dvorak
Dvorak is a Nomic-like card game, inspired by Magic: The Gathering
and the like, but including the possibility to create new cards as
you go. As the
website has a lot of ready-to-play games available, I created
a Perl program and an HTML layout to print out those cards.
- RotoR -- ROT-13 any text
Since I usually read news using Google, and my browser doesn't have
ROT-13 built in, I searched the Internet for a program to do that. The
only one I could find was Shareware, over a Megabyte in size and had a
separate Encode and Decode button. So I felt I had no choice...
- The Vim User Manual
Vim is an outstanding free text editor. Its user manual is organised in
many small files, which makes it difficult to print. Here you can find
a Perl program that glues all the files together into one big
HTML file, which you can then print from your browser.
- Hapax Legomena
Hapax Legomena is a way of processing a text that was described in
the VPRO Gids. I wrote this web page to see what it's like.
- Aeromail 2
AeroMail is a simple web-based mail client, written by Mark Cushman.
I improved it and make the new version available here.
- 3D's Maratona
In 2009, I'm going to ride the
Maratona dles Dolomiti together
with two friends. This is a wiki about this endeavour. (In Dutch.)
