It's well worth checking out the other videos of his roboters. The ant is especially amazing.

You could argue back and forth if Star Citizen is really worth the 40 Million USD of crowd funding it currently got, but what you cannot argue about is the quality of graphics they achieved, using CryEngine 4. Now this looks fucking amazing.

+Axi5 They are also modelling city's on the planet so they have a lot more work done by artists.

I sure hope it will happen rather sooner than later. Everything in our cars is hi-tech these days, but then we still use good ole clunky mirrors. I think security could be much improved with camera systems, especially by eliminating the blind spot.

Once again we have the switch to Daylight Saving Time, dreaded by me because it screws up my inner clock for good. The discussion about the benefits and issues of the DST is an old one. In my opinion the problem is not the DST itself, but the time switching. It's great to have one extra hour of sunlight in the evenings, so why not keep it all year?

Go ask our cats what they think about "daylight saving time":  it gets dark outside? Feeding time, even if it is just a rain cloud :)

Dann wirst du die mobilen Studios hassen :P Die haben nichtmal mehr nen Kameramann, da gibt es tatsächlich nur eine einzige Person, die moderiert, die Kamera steuert und die Beiträge einblendet. Und natürlich ein grünes Tuch

If your Android device started stuttering while playing FLAC files after upgrading to KitKat, the reason for that is a regression in Android:

(The issue has been fixed in the source repo. It's still unclear when this fix will surface in a binary release)

One thing's for sure: The "Per" in Perforce does not come from Performance.

No the 'Per' in Perforce comes from 'Per'vert ;)

Brilliant. I must say I fell for it until someone mentioned to check the date when the ban becomes active (tomorrow). Woosh. I especially like how 1984 from George Orwell is on that list too :)

I'm one of those people that don't need a lot of sleep. And it has always been a struggle for me to actually fall asleep, so I sometimes have to resort to medication (Trazodone, which is really an excellent drug for this purpose).

If I don't get that much sleep, good luck getting me up. Or seeing me function effectively.
