Credit to +CD PROJEKT RED​ and +GOG.com - DRM-Free Games​. I haven't played any Witcher game yet, but I preordered TW3 early partly because I want to support this company and its practices, and am looking forward to trying it.

I hope TW3 is made available for Linux, too.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a hit, both commercially and critically. The game has sold over 4 million copies in three weeks worldwide, with an average review score of over 90 on every platform...

I got this as a free gift with my latest British food order. (It was that or a packet of Haribo.) Target practice?

The whole article is well worth a read for some great insights into modern-day web design and user behaviour.

Brendan Eich got shouted out of the organization for having unpopular personal politics -- but when Mozilla does things like this, where's the noise? Where's the pressure to clean house?
Firefox, you're supposed to be in my pocket, not the other way around. Disclaimer: I'm a bit pissed off, so this article might contain some anger. Today, I updated my Firefox, and had a new icon on my toolbar: pocket. I took at quick look at the ToS and privacy policy; here is my tl;dr: ...

I am really liking the GOG and Galaxy approach. Next time I'm in Windows and have a bit of time for gaming stuff I'll be trying this out.
 
GOG Galaxy, the DRM-free online gaming platform, has just entered public beta! It offers one-click installation, automatic updates, library management, friends lists, chat, and so much more. 

Get it here: http://j.mp/GOGgalaxy

Check it out at the link above and give it a try yourself - but no pressure, it's fully optional!

Does anyone have experience with/recommendations of translation platforms for sites, apps and docs? I'm looking at open source and commercial options.

+David Oliver​ Python just isn't very portable in my experience, and runs into some of the same problems as Ruby regarding poor packaging and supportability. So yeah, I don't blame you. While I have confidence that with diligence you can get Pootle working just fine, I have a lot less certainty concerning its long term maintainability.
