Interesting concept for Game Dev
A new challenger stepped into the game engine arena today: MaxPlay, a game technology company that aims to entice developers into using its “cloud-based” collaborative game development platform.

Credit card companies missed a trick when they failed to make receiving funds as easy as spending them. Can someone fix that? Usual fee plz!

On a tablet - ASUS TF101 running ON 4.0.3 - the App screen has tiny icons, which don't work. Also, the config link flashes the setting page then quickly flicks back to the main screen, after which even the config link fails.

Sorry to hear that. As I cannot reproduce the error, and nobody else has reported something similar, I guess it has to do with your device.
Try reinstalling the app.

Ah, thanks. Didn't mean to "be that guy", as we all make mistakes. On TableTop they re record when there's an error, but I guess that's not feasible.

Hey #gamedev friends, are there any laptops that are powerful enough to run an #oculusrift (maybe with USB Hub?)

This is my jar. Or, rather, it is a picture of my jar. Actually, it's just a lot of coloured dots. No, it's nervous impulses starting (upside down) at the back of your eyes. From there on, it links to all those memories and sense information inside your head; you being countless others I have never, may never, or have already, met. So, this isn't MY jar. It's yours. You tell me why it's open. Why it has a seal and a clasp. Why there are coffee rings behind it. What is the significance of the wood.

For me - hearing impaired - the hardest part of listening is the concentration required. However, it has the side effect of giving your whole attention, which others appreciate.

You mentioned that it shouldn't happen, but not (I think) why it happened.

Story
Introduction
Story Teller, Writer and Broadcaster, Lecturer and all round Pedagogist, interested in Games, Plagiarism, Social Effects of Technology, oh and Plagiarism. Dr. Mike "DoctorMike" Reddy has studied and worked at several universities, including Durham, Leeds and Manchester, and is now Programme Leader for Games and Future Technology at the University of Wales, Newport. He claims to be “an awful academic, far more interested in the playing and the doing of life than the writing and reviewing” and perhaps for that reason has been instrumental in raising debate over 21st century pedagogy and teaching practices in the UK, reprioritizing learning and reminding us that education is something you do for/with students, not at them. He is currently stupidly busy working on the World's first Foundation Degree for getting Artists to program, while running the EU funded caldys2 project aimed at creating computer games to aid children with dyslexia learn English as a second language, with 10 EU partners. Lots of travel, lots of work, no time...
