Thousand Parsec is a turn-based space empire building game, as well as a framework for creating a similar group of games, which are often called 4X games (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, and eXterminate). Some examples of games from which Thousand Parsec draws ideas are Reach for the Stars, Stars!, VGA Planets, Master of Orion, and Galactic Civilizations. Unlike commercial alternatives, it is designed for long games supporting universes as large as your computer can handle. It allows a high degree of player customization, and features a flexible technology system where new technologies may be introduced mid-game.
Roadsend PHP produces optimized stand alone applications, libraries, and Web applications from standard PHP source code. The compiler produces native machine code, not PHP byte code, so no interpreter is required. It is a new implementation of the PHP language and runtime environment compatible with Zend PHP. It does not share any code with the original PHP implementation.
Eleven is a programming language for creating robust, scalable Web applications quickly and easily. It offers a 20x programmer productivity increase over traditional server programming languages like ASP, PHP, and JSP by automating state management and taking control of the application's look and feel. From high-level source code with a simple, C-like syntax, the compiler generates complete, ready-to-run implementations in PHP or mod_perl. Applications maintain their state in a relational database and are inherently fault-tolerant, secure, and scalable.
