This afternoon Phil, Jon, Sasha and myself engaged in a little Tron-esque gameplay thanks to the awesome 3D recreation known as Armacycle Advanced or sometimes Armagetron. This game is awesome! Not only is it very, very addictive but it is also fully networked meaning you can play on your LAN or even online with other players.
Here is a screen shot of the game in action:

Man, Eclipse works great on Debian! It gives me this cool message on startup:
JVM terminated. Exit code=127
After uninstalling, reinstalling, changing which JVM I was using, uninstalling, reinstalling, googling, yahooing, and binging, I finally found this post over at Debian Help that instructed me to first install XULRunner. With the addition of this simple step, everything suddenly worked great.
The strange part about the whole thing is that Eclipse doesn’t install XULRunner as a dependency, and the Wikipedia article about XULRunner doesn’t mention Eclipse anywhere. I don’t really understand their relationship, aside from the fact that Eclipse supports plugins that may or may not be written on top of XULRunner.
Regardless of their strange and undocumented relationship, the Eclipse/XULRunner combo seem to work perfectly, allowing me to create Java, C/C++, and Plugin projects out of the box. Next steps include adding plugins for Subversion, Python, and PHP.
