I thought the main shield world from the Halo books was a lot bigger than what they depicted in Halo 4. Turns out, the first shield world the humans come across is 2AU in size. From what I remember, it was effectively a star system unto itself.
Determining the Real Sizes of Objects in Halo - Update. Full article is here - this is just the Cascade Scaling images, redone at 1280x720. An older version, created for Halo Waypoint, is here. All work was done by Stephen Loftus (SoundEffect) This collection was totally overhauled in June 2014.

As much as I like the idea of unlimited usage of certain high data services (such as music and video streaming), T-Mobile is being pretty shady about the whole thing, and it could set a precedent for more draconian companies to start doing some horrible anti-net neutrality things.
 
Back in November, T-Mobile announced a new service for its mobile customers called Binge On, in which video streams from certain websites don’t count against customers’ data caps.

"No matter what, any killing of any human being is an act of terrorism."

The rest of the article is a bit meh
U.S.-born Syed Farook, 28, and Tashfeen Malik, 27, died in a shootout with police more than four hours after the bloodbath.

Well, the new Android app for Google+ also doesn't have a good way to filter streams through circles. They're pushing collections so hard, you have to do around 7 taps to view content from a single circle.

This is quite irritating in an otherwise pretty nice update.

My mom let me pick a Lego out of her secret stash. Found this beautiful retired one. A smart man would have sold it unopened. I am not a smart man.

A close friend sent me a Fallout 4 code unexpectedly last night. Now I'm hooked in one of my favorite game universes of all time. Feels a lot like Fallout 3, but also very different. Loving it so far.

The story of Star Wars is a familiar one from an unfamiliar angle. It follows the life of a young jihadi, from his socially isolated teenage years on a hardscrabble farm, through his encounters with local radical elements, through the death of his parents as "collateral damage" in a military operation, through his move to a remote location where he studies under a hard-line mullah, to his involvement in a series of terrorist acts, leaving thousands of soldiers dead in his wake. What's unfamiliar about this story (from a Western perspective) is that we see this story not from the point of view of civil society, the police, or the victims of radical Jedi terror, but from the point of view of the terrorists themselves. That is, this is a chance to see the logic of violent terrorism from the perspective of those participating in it.

This unconventional angle may make the film politically highly sensitive in these security-conscious times, but with a new installment coming shortly (about the consequences of living in the aftermath of the destabilization of the government by terror and insurrection), I think it may be worth the risk of being placed on watchlists to watch this film and seriously consider its lessons for our day. After all, nobody is a villain in their own eyes.

You may find yourself surprised by how much the original Star Wars trilogy's characters and themes echo the current War On Terror.

The new Google+ seems great, but they need to get the ability to view circle specific streams back. At least it isn't dumping my carefully tuned circles into the home stream for now. I prefer to get certain amounts of posts from some circles, or the ability to view the contents on demand, rather than as part of the main firehose.

Sharing to circles is a little awkward now that communities take up the top of the list, but I can deal with that. The speed and simplicity is definitely nice.

Oh, and they brought back the #whitespace. I forgot about those dark times...

Introduction
I am a web developer and computer enthusiast. I love using Linux and have experience in several programming languages. I usually am pretty easy going and love having a good time with friends.

Some of my favorite things to do are: Programming, learning new things, longboarding, tinkering with computers (both hardware and software), reading (news, blogs, books, etc), spending time with friends and family, and playing video games. (especially Minecraft and Halo.

The name superlink is a fictional character I created at the age of 13. The superlinkx variation has become my primary online alias, and I use it for my identifier across the web.
