Right Sort Of Mad

I would like to draw your attention to a few splendid projects which are, like Jack Churchill, The Right Sort Of Mad.

  • Xplain attempts to explain how the X Window System works, something that is Plenty Mad on its own. In doing so it implements an X server in Javascript just because.
  • MOVfuscator compiles your code to nothing but MOV instructions. Just imagine, now that you're not using all the CPU area wasted for tiresome nonsense like ADD or NOP [EAX + ...], Intel could turn it all into cache! And it'll be super-efficient because the CPU doesn't have to decode whether each instruction is a MOV or something pointless like JNE!
  • ctypes.sh, because you always wanted to care about pointers in your bash scripts. I know I do! Mmmm pointers, I love 'em.
