I finished the work on my terminal-based organizer. It includes a todo-list, a simple event-calendar and a logging-function to keep track of actions you need to remember. The event-calendar supports whole-day events, like birthdays aswell as yearly repetition.
A monthly repetition mode is planned.
It is mainly based on bash-scripting and uses awk, grep, sed and a bit of perl, is colored and the best of all: it synchronizes between diffrent linux-pc's and mac's using a svn-repository.
There are some configuration options available, for example which domain to ping to check the internet connection, the editor to use for editing events and the logfile and an interval for how long the last svn-update is used before updating again.
After getting the game I first tried to install it via wine. It worked but the sound did not, at least not properly. So I consulted the online world for help and found out that you can install it natively on the mac - its java baby.
Get the inofficial java installer, install the game to ~/EdnaAndHarvey. Now you can play the game from console by cd-ing to the install dir and typing
java -Xms256M -Xmx512M -Dsun.java2d.opengl=true -jar EbaMain.exe w
If this gives you some error-trace "bad version number in .class file" you have to switch the java-version to 1.6. You may start it by typing
/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.6/Commands/java -Xms256M -Xmx512M -Dsun.java2d.opengl=true -jar EbaMain.exe w
For enhancing the comfort when starting the game you may also write a bash-script or even better:
Bundle it to an app using platypus.
Paste the line above in a new script, open the hardy icon in preview and drag it in platypus' icon-field, set output to none, uncheck "Remains running after initial execution" and dont add anything to bundle in with yet - or it takes you a long time to pack. After the app has been created open it with a right-click and "show package content..." copy the content of your install-folder (~/EdnaAndHardy) to "Contents/Resources". You can delete the jre1.6.0_06 folder, which will save you about 80 Megz, thats not much compared to a 6.6 Gigz game, but it wont hurt.
Enjoy the game...
