What do you think you can get in Tom's Café? Yes, that's right: coffee. But it's a very special kind of coffee called 'Java'. Sorry, you can drink this kind of coffee only virtually. But I hope, you'll enjoy it nevertheless.

Spider Arachnid

'Spider Arachnid' is a Java implementation of a patience game, known as Sun demo 'Spider' and Windows version 'Arachnid'. So I call it 'Spider Arachnid'. You can play it online within the browser window.


Coffee Substitute

If you don't like Java coffee, if caffeine doesn't agree with you, here is a substitute for Java called 'JavaScript'. It contains no caffeine at all but it tastes similar to Java coffee. JavaScript is not Java but it's better than nothing.

Other drinks

And what about tea? - I don't know what kind of tea you like. Perhaps a little bit of "snake tea"? - It sounds very strange but Python has a good flavour. And it doesn't taste at all of snake.

Now only the cake is missing to coffee or tea. Therefore here is a baking tutorial for VDR-c't-Tobi-VDRdevel plug-ins. Sounds complicated - but it's very easy.

And as a reward for the efforts there are multimedia pleasures: digital television, video, music ... All that and much more offers us the Video Disk Recorder (VDR) of Klaus Schmidinger.
