ScummVM ported to HTML5?

This was just brought to my attention, and I’m pretty stoked! I haven’t actually looked at the source or done much in the way of investigation, but if it’s legit, then this is really, really exciting. 🙂

Maybe not as exciting as porting Unreal 3 to the web, but, well, I’m old-school. 😀

UPDATED: Thanks everybody for alerting me to the broken link. Fixed it now.

Scratchpad ported to Thunderbird. Kinda.

Firefox has a sweet suite of developer tools. If you haven’t used them, you’re seriously missing out.

Thunderbird, on the other hand, has very little in the way of developer tools. We used to have ChromeBug, but then that project went by the wayside when the Firebug developers decided to focus more on, well, Firebug.

And ever since, debugging and fiddling around in Thunderbird has been a pain.

So a few folks on the TB team decided to take a crack at porting one of Firefox’s tools to Thunderbird. We chose Scratchpad (or rather, its earlier incarnation, “Workspace”), because being able to execute snippets of script on the fly is super-useful for trying stuff out.

So without further ado, here it is – Workspace for Thunderbird.

Install that, and a new Workspace menuitem appears under Tools. This will open up Workspace. Make sure to switch your Context to Chrome for superpowers.

Monkey Island 1: The Secret of Monkey Island running via Javascript

Some fine fellow has written some Javascript that runs one of my favourite games in the browser.  I just watched the opening cutscene of Monkey Island in Firefox!

It’s still a bit buggy, but it’s a start!

Here’s the source code.
