I’ve just released a new version of Logstalgia, my website access log visualization that looks a bit like Pong if only it had been created by Jeff Minter. Logstalgia is also referred to as ApachePong (referring to both the Apache Web Server and Pong) which is a much better name, but also covered by multiple trademarks.
Here’s a new video to go with it.
The song is ‘Depart’ by Tekno Eddy, which I found on ccmixter.org, which is a good place to find Creative Commons music that people actually want you to use (with attribution) in your Youtube videos.
The new version of Logstalgia adds a bunch of features back-ported from Gource, like being able to seek to a point in the log file, and the much needed PPM output support for making videos that was probably the biggest feature missing originally.
