Last week I had the pleasure of chatting with Michael Romeo of +Symphony X about their new release Underworld.  Phenomenal album.

IntelliJ IDEA 15 EAP brings fractional scaling of fonts and icons for HiDPI displays on Windows and Linux. http://goo.gl/CGjmBJ

What's better than talking to rockstar programmers? Talking to Rock Star guitarists about music composition, songwriting, and a new album. Hopefully my interview with Michael Romeo from +Symphony X will be online tomorrow.

(well, it's online now if you know where to look), but will be published over on libel.co.nz tomorrow some time.
