Out of all the games I see in development, this one looks most intriguing. Congrats for coming up with a new angle!

Josh - the nebula looks great. I'm assuming that the model basically maps particles as light emitters and does some aggregation over them to build up the sky.

However, Is there a dark, occluding layer as well? If you could take the nebula model (light emitting) and add a dust model as well (light occluding), I think you could take this to the point where the live video would start to realistically resemble the Hubble Space Telescope images.

What's your rig?  - 
 
When I build a system, I expect it to be decent for at least four years and hopefully last six. This is my latest rig, built to be a quiet (but not silent) system suitable for gaming and heavy duty computing. It's running Ubuntu 12.10 64bit (and the Steam for Linux client!).

Case ANTEC P183 V3 Black
Motherboard ASUS M5A99X EVO 990X
GPU ASUS Nvidia|GTX660 TI-DC2O-2GD5
PSU SEASONIC X750 GOLD 750W
CPU AMD FX8350 AM3+ 4.0GHz
Arctic Cooling Freezer A30 heat sink
SSD 120G OCZ Vertex3
2x Seagate 2Tb 7.2Kb HDD (RAID 1)
16Gb RAM (1x 8Gb Corsair Vengence DDR3 1866MHz)

Two notes for system builders.
This GPU card is a full width, double fan and heat pipe design: I had to remove the two drive holders from the middle tunnel in the front of the P183 case to ensure it didn't rub against the clips.
The A30 heat sink is MASSIVE and overhangs the first memory slot on the motherboard. Effectively this means that you can only use two of the four slots for dual-channel memory. The ASUS motherboard doesn't list support for 8Gb DIMMs but these Corsair 8Gb DIMMs seems to work just fine.

For several months, I was going to go with the Core i5 - the AMD FX 8120 at a slightly lower price point didn't cut it. However, the FX 8350 is distinctly faster at both single and parallel tasks, looks to be good for over clocking (although I've not pushed that yet) and eclipses the i5s for the majority of tasks.

This would be fantastic to decorate a kid's bike. Not only would it look cool, it would make them safer when it's getting dark

David Kingham also does workshops on night photography and high ISO shots, so if you have a DSLR which isn't being used to the fullest, check out some of his blogs and resources.

Steam for Linux  - 
 
Looks like the latest beta roll out for Steam is incomplete - it's asking for a steam-launcher package but that package is NOT in the repo yet.

Now that is a lot of snow! We had a dusting this morning but it's all gone now.

When building lego towers, remember that you can only stack 375,000 bricks above each other before the bottom one collapses.

Dropped in on the way up further North. It's a bit larger than some of the Cora's I've been to, the staff were friendly and we lucked out as the queue to get in wasn't insane. If you have children, plan on getting there well before midday, as it gets busy. Food was pretty much what I've come to expect - tasty, lots of fruit. It was well cooked and presented, came about 15 minutes after ordering.
