Yes please.
Speculation about who comes next as Nintendo's leader centers on Shigeru Miyamoto, 62, the creator of such franchises as Donkey Kong, Mario and Zelda.

Nah, Nintendo should buy Valve and put Gabe Newell in charge.

VirtualBox 5.0 is released, with lots of nice changes. New features include paravirtualization, encrypted images, and the ability to run VMs in detached state, without any UI. Good stuff.
Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.0 provides increased security with encryption and improved performance

The real goodies are closed source anyway, so I just use VMware Player.

Update on my post regarding running with Achilles tendinitis: The highly cushioned Brooks Glycerin 13 shoes with special insoles do indeed help me. Walking is mostly painless now, so I actually wear them everyday, even in the office. However they cannot magically cure the tendinitis. My research showed so far, there is no real cure, besides avoiding running for a long time :(

Yep. Then massage. Then rotating heat and cold - tough to get circulation there to assist healing; cycling through temp extremes helps.

Kudos to everyone who made Plasma 5 happen so far. I can only say that I am very impressed by the desktop experience, both in look-and-feel and features. The "Breeze" UI theme manages to feel both modern (simplified) as well as elegant. At the same time, the desktop itself feels rather mature and stable, something which could not be said of early KDE 4.x versions.

Yeah, there's still a lot of work to be done but it's shaping up real well. You nailed it: it FEELS better. Like the developers had a more coherent idea of where they wanted to go. Which is probably true...

Quickly falling in love with #Atom. This editor is made of awesome (and some CoffeeScript). I love its Sublime-like UI and the already insane amount of great extension packages. Only downsides currently are the noticeable input lag, and the completely broken support for non-US keyboards. I say "keyboards" because even with US layout many keys are on completely wrong locations, due to an underlying issue in Chromium.

Temp fix for keyboard: https://atom.io/packages/keyboard-localization
Foreign language keyboard support for atom.

Well, it's only just reached version 1.0. These issues will be fixed, I'm sure.

Want to use the Windows key to open KDE's start menu? Do this:
xmodmap -e ‘keycode 133=F13′

And then assign F13 as the shortcut for the launch menu.

Fwiw, gnome3 does that by default and it is a nice gimmick especially on win8+ convertibles that have a separate win key next to the touchscreen.

Neues von Harald Schmidt. Anfangs nervös (typische Ticks auf rechter Gesichtshälfte), gegen Ende in Höchstform!

Whoever had the idea that clicking middle mouse button in Windows should toggle scrolling mode should be shot. I fucking hate this dumb feature.

yeah, middle-click is paste... This feature killed me, too, 6 years ago when I was stuck on this mediocre OS at work :D

Miley Cyrus was elected "sexiest vegetarian" by PETA. You cannot get any sexier than her as a vegetarian. If you want that anyway, I guess it means you will have to eat meat?
