recon (server reconnaissance) / News: Recent posts

Finished hacking

Recon has most of the features I wanted, it's been polished it off with some customized graphics, so I'll probably quit hacking on it for a while. It's a decent server browser for quake3 so if you have a need for such a thing, enjoy!

I'm sure I'll return to it to add some more features as I think of a need, but will spend most of my development time on other projects.

Recon goes Beta

It's becoming a good game server browser for quake3. Many of my quake 3 friends have used it on Linux and Windows platforms and like it.

The net code is clean enough that it's progressed beyond alpha stage. 3 weeks development time is is pretty short considering the complexity of some of the stuff it does.

I have to thank Python and wxPython teams for their hard work making such excellent programming tools available.

Phew, major re-write not necessary

Had quit looking for ways to have sockets timeout on Linux when I ran across asyncore module. This module (although I dont' use it) has lots of promise. If you find this module interesting, you might want to look for the medusa project.

I suggested to python-doc that the see-also section of socket be ammended to include select and asyncore. Hopefully that will, and save others from the same trials and trivulations.... read more

Development is booming

It's been less than 2 weeks since I started this project, and I've already posted 2 releases. After I made the second release (threaded server pings), I've added one or two features I really wanted. There's a few more on my wish list, but the filter/find option works great, and it was a breeze to implement. Gawd, I like Python! For a programming language, it's almost a little too easy sometimes. :)
