    This is a computer game genre focused on guns and other weapon-based fighting using a first-person perspective. They are a type of three-dimensional shooter game. Pick up your weapon, enter the battle arena, and take on your enemy in these fast and furious games.

    It’s sometimes claimed that the concept of a first-person shooter originated with the release of Doom, 20 years ago. While Doom was definitely not the first in this genre, although it was an important game in promoting the genre. One of the earliest FPS games was Spasim (“Space Simulation”) released in March 1974. The game included wireframe 3D graphics, local multiplayer, the first-person perspective, and ships and weapons based on Star Trek. The game was played on the PLATO computer system and was heavily influenced by another PLATO space multiplayer game Empire.

An introduction to Joplin, an open source Evernote alternative

Joplin is an open source cross-platform note-taking and to-do application. It can handle a large number of notes, organized into notebooks, and can synchronize them across multiple devices. The notes can be edited in Markdown, either from within the app or with your own text editor, and each application has an option to render Markdown with formatting, images, URLs, and more. Any number of files, such as images and PDFs, can be attached to a note, and notes can also be tagged. I started developing Joplin when Evernote changed its pricing model and because I wanted my 4,000+ notes to be stored in a more open format, free of any proprietary solution. To that end, I have developed three Joplin applications, all under the MIT License: for desktop (Windows, MacOS, and Linux), for mobile (Android and iOS), and for the terminal (Windows, MacOS, and Linux). All the applications have similar user interfaces and can synchronize with each other. They are based on open standards and technologies including SQLite and JavaScript for the backend, and Terminal Kit (Node.js), Electron, and React Native for the three front ends. Read more
