This looks like a really cool simulation game. It's also nice to see Introversion making a different stylistic choice.
As part of their ongoing “treasure hunt,” indie studio Introversion Software has given us a brief-yet-tantalizing teaser of their IGF entry and upcoming release, Prison Architect. One thing I’m really loving is the art style, which is a colorful departure from the studio’s prior titles’ retro wire-frame feel. As a fan of both Introversion’s previous releases and the Dwarf Fortress-esque vibe of community management I get from this teaser, I’m ea...

Looks great! I do love simulation games. I've been moving back in that direction again after Dark Souls by playing Shogun 2 (my first Total War game). But this is probably more similar to SpaceChem, or maybe Dwarf Fortress (which I haven't spent as much time on).

I think a good sim game needs a moment where your simulation is tested in some way. I'd criticise, say, RollerCoaster Tycoon for merely being about having x dollars in n time. In Shogun 2 this moment is the Realm Divide, where the current Shogun decides you've become too powerful and unites all the other clans against you. All of a sudden I'm surrounded on all sides by enemy armies. Dwarf Fortress is more of a constant struggle to survive, but Prison Architect will inevitably have riots and escapes, perhaps to the extent of helicopters landing on the roof and soldiers attacking the gates. Looking forward to seeing how far they go with that.

This is pretty funny. Not in the "haha" way, but more in the "laughing so I won't start crying" way.

Anyhow, no real surprises here.
The report by KPMG for Rob Ford could just as easily have been written by the former mayor Ford hates so much

I wanted to make "roguelikes" a spark, but Google wouldn't let me.

Well, looks like today 'roguelikes' works too :)
Maybe enough people looked for that 'spark' for the keyword to get indexed?

The Sign of Four was a good Sherlock Holmes novel, but it really falls apart at the end.

"Oh, the adventure is over? I guess we'd better recap the entire thing, including all the back-story as well." (Not an actual quote)

I'm honestly surprised that it didn't end with the phrase: "And that's how I ended up sitting here, in front of you."

Just plucked the first home grown tomato of the season. Maybe this gardening thing will pay off after all?

Definitely jealous. If I could only grow one thing in a garden, it would have to be tomatoes.

CSS rage: A table row that (inexplicably) insists on being 5 pixels larger than it is supposed to be. Bend to my will, you stupid row!

Not having a webcam or a cell phone makes most of Google+'s unique features useless to me.

Story
Introduction
I'm particularly interested in the NLP field of CS, as it is booming and applications abound.

I like the band Deerhoof, and also the band Animal Collective; along with some other bands as well.

I like cryptic crosswords, roguelikes, board games and puzzles.

I use Emacs, and enjoy programming in python.
