As a senior software engineer, I'll say two things about the release date change - 1) "shipped is better than perfect," and 2) your monthly video updates give you a ton of goodwill that makes release date slips like this very tolerable. Just don't do it too much more. ;)

Most big companies don't do regular video updates when in development. That you, an independent sole developer, take the time to do them speaks very well of your professionalism and your grasp of public relations.

Thinking about writing a mod for Minecraft that mimics Star Wars: Galaxies. What do you think? http://www.reddit.com/r/swg/comments/2h6d75/minecraft_galaxies/

Tbh, this Minecraft hype has totally gone over my head, I barely know what the game is (the mechanics) but if you feel for it that's great.

This.
Welcome to the world wide web, an interactive medium in which screen resolution statistics are trivial, browser viewports are variable, and scrolling behaviour is a standard.

I bought a new accent chair for my home office. Already, it's been claimed by a feline denizen.

Brilliant selection of beer, interesting food. Try the mashed potato pizza. Wash it down with one of the couple dozen craft brews on tap that change almost daily. The staff are unusual. If you come in expecting service with a smile, you'll be disappointed. But if you come in expecting service with character, you'll be pleasantly surprised. The owner/main bartender is gruff but fun if you get on his good side.

Love this chain, and this one in particular. However, pepperheads beware, their "hot" wings are barely a shade over medium.
