Why do FB apps still get to ask to "post on your behalf?" We have SDKs now that let us explicitly do so on a per-post basis, there should be no such permission anymore.

In case you missed it the first time: I run an independent software consulting firm now. http://sunseaskyfactory.com/

Oh, so that's why OUYA isn't being shipped on time.

My Ludum Dare was a success. The game itself is not that great, but I learned a hell of a lot about Unity, and my next jam will be that much better. http://id.khakionion.com/img/LD27_final.gif

"Ship it!"

Seems good to me for a first pass over the weekend while having to learn the tools. Looking forward to seeing what you're able to do in later sessions once you're comfortable with Unity, etc.

Sweet. FFXIV 2.0 apparently has Gold-class support from Wine, including on the Mac. Maybe I'll give it a shot again?

Interesting, considering FFXI never really got anywhere. Good news, though! Give me a shout if you ever find yourself near Leviathan; I was there during beta for doing testing not relating to my 1.0 char (on Balmung), and will likely stick around.

84% of tablet web traffic share, that's crazy, that's a cartoon number. Embarrassing for their competitors.

Immigration is a real chore. In other news, I'm still in SF for about three more weeks.

Only two weeks into independent contracting, and it is everything I thought it'd be: a bit frustrating, a lot fun, and incredibly exciting.

It's certainly not the model that I think I would work well in (prefer to embed myself in a role and not move), but that's where I'm starting somewhere that's on "my" side of the fence so it should work out well for me. But so many other times you'll be moving around whether willingly or unwillingly, so you may as well just make it official. It'll be interesting to see where the software industry as a whole settles in over the next handful of years.
