RIP Robert Pacurar

Monday  I looked in the mirror in the morning and i saw death into my eyes reflected into the mirror for glimpse of a second , I couldn't belive that this is the end but yes my eyes were darker than usual and i told to myself that that day something is gonna happen to me , Then i went to work and saw a car with a "Be aware of bikers" bumper sticker and i wondered why people would put something like that on a car  . Yesterday morning my wife called me that our best friend Roberd Pacurar is gone in a bike accident

#gsoc2015 for libreoffice update #1 - update firebird to 2.5.4

Jenkins tells us libo master fails to build on MacOS and MS Windows, in the firebird compilation.
These two will be merged into one request:
Patch is applied upstream

Also external/firebird/firebird-icu.patch is already applied upstream in 2.5.4 (it's an examples makefile  firebird/builds/posix/

On On MacOS X, the error after update seems to be that the Firebird build system uses a compiler switch that is not recognised by clang compiler. (needs to be removed also contributed upstream in 2.5..x tree)

Gibbous - A Cthulhu Adventure (Pre-Alpha Demo Footage)

Gibbous is a classic 2d point and click adventure, and yes it’s a Lucas Arts-like game. It also is, as the subtitle so unsubtle-y gives it away, a loving spoof of everything Lovecraftian, and then some.

Timo-T puzzle game [WIP]

The Gameplay is relatively easy: You are a robot that has to press some buttons in a certain sequence in order to get to the next level (the buttons are just a sketch they are not final). Every level is time elapsing from 3-5 min per level. All the levels are basically on the same platform, the only difference is that the platforms are moving up and down and as U advance in the game it will be harder and harder because the higher levels will have certain paths which U must go on the and rest will be lava. There will be lasers as shown in the teaser and plasma bullets shot from the ceiling. The robot will have 2 special abilities with a cooldown meter and there will be power-ups like walk on lava for a few seconds and restore health. And of course the facility is built inside of a volcano.
