The Balbach Castle was once allied with a robber baron.
There were no Balbachs in the castle, just highwaymen - so it was said.
In 1523, a Frankish punitive expedition under the Swabian League burned it down (pictured).
Nothing remains today but this awesome woodcut by war correspondent Hans Wandereisen.
* Author Watchlist.
Unix script is a "book author watchlist". It will monitor for new books
coming out by authors on your watchlist, sending you an email
notification when a new book comes out by an author on your list. Keep
track of your favorite authors without relying on luck, word of mouth or
trips to the book store. It uses LibraryThing for tracking (ie. crowd
sourcing), but you don't need an account there for the script to work.
It tends to pick up new books before they are published or are much
advertised which is kind of nice.
* Battle for Moscow.
wargame I wrote in C, mostly during college (1988-1994), based on the boardgame originally
by Frank Chadwick. It's DOS only, pre-Windows. Full source.
