Something I missed back when it was first posted.
...and another. This one shows the bitrates of MP3 files in their icons and adds a property sheet which lets you edit ID3 tags and perform customizable scripted actions like automatic renaming on the files.

The Internet Archive didn't have the Windows 98SE-compatible version of EppieDesktop, so I uploaded it. Enjoy.
Funny enough, the more I think about it and discuss with someone on Imgur, the more I think the probable answer is "sloppy CG mockup", because, while the typing is animated, I don't remember it being easy to find hacks that flat-out HID the menu bar for non-Mozilla Suite programs back then.
@ssokolow 'Doug McIlroy also remembers that, amusingly, "the first technical paper that came off the C/A/T drew a query from the journal editor, who'd never seen a phototypeset manuscript before: had it been published elsewhere?" '
A friend of mine in college (English major) learned LaTeX and turned in a paper she wrote using it ... and had to defend herself against charges of having turned in a published work by producing the sources and making requested changes in real-time.
It turns out there's an amusing anecdote behind the decision to split stdout and stderr:
I just ran across this nifty little detective story recounting an attempt to find where the constant in Quake 3's InvSqrt() function came from:
Something I wrote about this effort to replace words like "master [branch]" and "blacklist" in programming projects and tooling, based on the relationship to the euphemism treadmill:
Euphemisms aren't about fixing problems. They're about disconnecting us from the emotional discomfort that should be driving us to fix the problem.

I just added "Zero no Tsukaima: Saito the Onmyoji" to one of my existing lists of worthwhile #fanfiction if anyone's interested.
I just started putting together an Itch.io collection for libre game development tools (and reusable code that could be run at build or runtime).
It's got some interesting stuff, like GB Studio, a game maker which generates actual Gameboy ROMs.
Just ran across a post which explains how HJKL and use of ~ to mean $HOME came from the same terminal's keyboard layout... the Lear Siegler ADM-3A.
In case anyone's interested, I just posted a run-down of simple C/C++ test frameworks that'll build for real-mode DOS with Open Watcom C/C++ 1.9, plus preliminary research for how to do functional testing on a DOS program.
...so it turns out there's a rap song hidden on track 2 of my Mario Teaches Typing CD, and someone used its presence for a funnier interpretation of the title screen:
...speaking of which, I was originally introduced to the Fountains of Wayne song years ago by Fred Perry's "Misi's Mom" animation.
That guy is a drawing monster. He learned traditional animation so he could do his own OAV for his comic, Gold Digger.
He took down his original upload out of fear of the YouTube COPPA change, but you can watch it here:
...he also did that You Are A Pirate animation that made the rounds years ago.
The characters in that one are a crew of pirate-ninja leprechauns from Gold Digger.
