Hot on the heels of yesterday’s snapshot comes another:
Lots of fixes, and WPMU runs in PHP safe mode now, and with Smarty security enabled.
Things may break with php su exec and other unusual things so please report them in the forum!
As usual, the change log has more details.
Long before mp3 files were causing such a headache for the music industry, original music in the mod scene was inspiring artists and listeners alike all over the world! I’m glad to say that the mod scene is still very much alive.
This search provided me with a wealth of links to explore, and I even found some old favourites and one I remember a friend obsessed about 10 years ago.
The The Mod Archive looks like the place to go for mod stuff these days!
I’ll have to search a little more to find my favourites from the Hornet Archive. Woo! I found the Freedom CD compilation that Hornet released in 1995. Listen to the first track, Kingdom Skies by Jase, or the second track, The Crossing by Necros for a taster of really excellent free music.
You’ll probably want modplug to play your new MOD files. On Debian a simple apt-get install xmms-modplug does the job and you can use the familiar Xmms interface to play them.
Going further back there’s the brilliantly exploited SID chip of the C64, collected in the High Voltage SID Collection. Ah, nostalgia.
