I got early access and have played it off and on. The only thing keeping me from playing more is that I've had the servers go down in the middle of a run numerous times. Not surprising in an early access game so I kind of went off and did other things for a while.

From what I have played I have to say I really like the way the game plays. I could definitely see this as a great game for a small group of people to play together. Much more tactical than most MMO's, it really captures that SR feel.

Since its release, the $35 Raspberry Pi mini-computer has been hailed as the perfect all-in-one retro game console. Now, it's easier to do than ever, and it doesn't take any advanced Linux knowledge. Here's how to make your own retro game console in about 30 minutes.

Upgraded the FSD and the hull on the Cobra this morning. The hull armor made the ship heavier so it wouldn't travel as far, and the FSD off-sets that. I can actually travel a little bit further on a tank of gas now.

Nice...had to do the same thing when I put the armor on mine too.  Still saving up for the highest level gimbaled beam lasers.  At 1.5M a pop it's taken some time.

Starpoint Gemini 2 coming to XB1 and Wasteland 2. Didn't know that!
At GDC last year, we debuted some of the first ID@Xbox games making their way to Xbox One. A year later, the response from independent developers to the program that enables them to self-publish their games on Xbox One has been both humbling and awesome. Dozens of games have shipped via ID@Xbox, ...

Also in that kind of game you run into actually being able to see all the data you need from across the room. When I had that X-51 hooked up to the PC a lot of that kind of strategy game had UI elements that were just unusable from 10 feet away. So there's probably always going to be some games you can only play while sitting in front of your monitor with mouse and keyboard at-hand.

So, we bought Tucker some diapers. 

He is EXTREMELY territorial, and has been marking up the house for quite some time now. My wife is getting furious, especially in the winter because I can usually "empty" him a few times a day during the summer. The winter is too cold, and he refuses to stay outside long enough. 

She found something called a "belly band" for male dogs that fits around their abdomen and acts as a diaper. He'll wear it around the house, and it'll absorb the urine when he tries to mark something. 

Under human circumstances, he'd probably be affected by this "cummerbund of shame", but he's kind of a jerk so I doubt it'll bother him much.

It's been over a decade since I've had to worry about it but at the time the only product I could find that got rid of cat urine odor was Nature's Miracle. At least I think that's the right one. Been awhile. =)

Not sure what rating you're looking for on the pulse lasers, but Cleve Hub in Erevate has an F2 pulse for 35,400 as of this morning.

A while back I had to create a graphical map of the relationship between organizations in our data here at work. Selecting a single org, you would see other related organizations radiating out from the central panel, and for each item on the screen you'd be able to hide it, drag it around, and inspect it in more detail. 

I had originally created it using Silverlight because A) I'm a .NET developer, B) the software was free, and C) reasons A and B. I learned just enough Silverlight to be able to complete the project, but the thing is catastrophic mess under the hood...it's one of those projects that causes me to break out in a cold sweat if I have to go in and fix something (which thankfully has only been once or twice in the 5-7 years since it's been operational). 

But we're in the middle of a re-do of a lot of our customer facing apps. Thankfully, I'm not developing them; I'm the SME for the data, and the one who supposedly "knows" the apps we're updating, so I have some minions to direct. I'm still dreading the point where we'll need to gut this Silverlight app to determine it's functionality and business rules, and even worse -- figuring out how we're going to update it. 

You might guess where I'm going with this. Yeah, I thought, "why the hell can't we use Unity?"

Because let's face it: Unity is not difficult to use for someone who's a .NET developer. It's a tool for creating visual representation of data, takes input, and makes stuff happen. That's basically what the original mandate was for this map project.  I figured it'd be mostly UI elements, and with the new UI in Unity, it should be significantly easier.

Of course, the goal isn't to "sex it up" with particles and occlusion culling and all those buzzwords that mean something in game development, but mean jack shit in boring business app development. I think that Unity could provide a quick platform for developing something like our map because it's essentially what Unity is created to do, in a way.
