You think of an animal, and this package tries to guess it... when it's wrong, you teach it about your animal.

To be more flexible and help educational aspect this game does not contain an initial database. This also allows it to be used for non animals like guessing of tools or locations.

Buckle emulates the sound of an old IBM Model-M space saver bucklespring keyboard while typing within an X session.

It runs as a background process and plays back the sound of each key pressed and released on the keyboard, just as if using an IBM Model-M. The sound of each key has carefully been sampled, and is played back while simulating the proper distance and direction for a realistic 3D sound palette of pure nostalgic bliss.

PolyGen is a program for generating random sentences according to a grammar definition, that is following custom syntactical and lexical rules.

Formally, it is an interpreter of a language itself designed to define languages, where to interpret means executing a source program in real time and eventually outputting its result.

Here a source program is a grammar definition, the execution consists in the exploration of such grammar by selecting a random path and the result is the sentence built on the way.

Though PolyGen is quite a serious piece of software then, what else would be more noble for it than being used as a parody tool for linguistical habits, stereotypes and trends of this foolish era?

Principles of parody are focusing a ridiculous topic and eventually abstracting its rules and schemes (here in terms of a grammar definition) by which reproducing it through the variatio device. And randomization is perfect at this purpose thanks to its purely asemantic behaviour =:)

For many years now, the purity test, (in various forms) has been widely available on the net. This package provides an automated way of taking the test.

Purity tests are an amusing way to see how much of a nerd or a hacker you are. More tests are available in the purity-off package.

Randtype is a small utility to output characters or lines at random intervals. There are a few command line options to refine the output. With it you can output files to the screen, and if you configured it well, it will look like someone is actually typing - with optional typos even.

Vigor is a perpetration of the Microsoft Word "Office Assistant" paperclip, based on nvi. It was inspired by Pitr of the "User Friendly" comic strip (http://www.userfriendly.org/).

Some people have speculated that Vigor was created under the influence of the evil Crud Puppy. The maintainer of this Debian package would like to stress his firm belief that these foul rumours are entirely without foundation.

XaoS allows you to zoom and pan around a fractal in real time. It can display the animated fractals in graphical or even plain text mode.

It displays the Mandelbrot set or many other fractals and allows you to zoom smoothly into the fractal. Various coloring modes are provided for both the points inside and outside the selected set. In addition, switching between Mandelbrot and Julia fractal types is provided.

Other features include autopilot mode, palette changing, image saving, fractal inversion, filters, and a built in fractal tutorial.

Generates random fractal mountains and displays them in a window (even in the X root window).

While the program is running the fractal is continuously extended on the right and the image is scrolled from right to left to expose the newly generated area.

xphoon sets the X root window to a picture of the moon in its current phase, including the partial lighting of the dark side by reflected earthlight. Picture is a monochrome dithered bitmap which is calculated via mathematical formulae. It keeps running on background updating the picture accordingly as time goes by.

Normally, xteddy just sits around doing nothing. After all, that's what teddy bears are for. Look at him, talk to him, place heavy windows on top of him, zap him around until he becomes dizzy, do what you like; he will always be your true (albeit virtual) friend. Now you can load other pixmaps than the nice teddy, too.
