I'm doing Movember this year... with the Bulletproof Networks team! Suggestions welcome: What should I do with my facial hair?

Right now, it looks roughly the same as the photo below (sans fancy glasses of course).

A bit of fun with the Chrome Lego thingy for my friends at Fairfax, who need a bit of cheer this week. :-)

+Jon "maddog" Hall, an uncle/grandpa figure to me, just came out publicly in honour of Alan Turing. Please read this. It's wonderful and heart-warming, while very clearly pointing out the ridiculousness of bigotry and inequality.

Gosh it would be nice to use Google Hangouts without using Google+.

Still blows my mind. 60fps first person shooter demo on a 2011 (i7) MacBook Air 11"... on a web page. :-)
Took the opportunity to poke and prod and my code while at the Mozilla Games Work Week and uploaded a newer version of my Quake 3 demo. There's several code changes that make my life a little easier (JQuery is gone, updated glMatrix, started on a more generalized mouselock/fullscreen shim, etc) and there are parts of it that should go a little bit faster, but the most visible change is that I've got some really REALLY basic gamepad support! I make no promises that it will work with YOUR gamepad, but you should be able to at least see some movement by twiddling your joysticks and pressing buttons.

Google turned off Code Search earlier this week. Creating and launching the initial public version of Code Search was my first project at Google, and, like many programmers, I'll miss it.

To mark the occasion, I have posted at swtch.com/~rsc/regexp/regexp4.html an explanation of how Code Search worked, and at code.google.com/p/codesearch a set of command-line tools to run regular expression searches against large amounts of code, quickly. It's obviously not a complete replacement, but it's the core of what Code Search did, and now you can run it on your own machine.

I want to thank everyone at Google who worked on or supported Code Search over the past five years. There are too many to name individually, but it was truly a team effort and a lot of fun.

P.S. Perhaps the best picture of source code ever published: blog.sfgate.com/techchron/2006/10/04/coders-start-your-search-engines/
