If this is half as good as Alpha Centauri, that would be awesome. I wonder why they didn't call it Alpha Centauri 2 - different gameplay?

Also, they show Rio de Janeiro and someone speaking Brazilian Portuguese around 1:00.

The trailer doesn't show any gameplay, but I'm considering spending the next 1h19 watching this Let's Play Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri Part 1: Three Wars in One Hour, in expectation :).

Had a productive evening. Decided that a piece of my DHT in Go needed a rewrite. Noticed it had no tests, so I started by writing those. It turns out that piece had 3 or so big bugs since the dawn of mankind, ouch. So I've fixed those - the rewrite will have to come later.

Also I fought OSX's gdb and lost. Couldn't make that piece of crap work, so printf for the win.

Last but not least, it snowed here in Zurich today! It wasn't enough to go sledding with the kids in the lawn, but it was pretty anyway.

I think this video is fake. No creature could accelerate mid air without wing/jet propulsion. Everyone knows Superman from Action Comics just jumps very high. Amateurs.

If Male Superhero Costumes Were Designed Like Female Superhero Costumes

This young lady does a great send-up of how the industry treats male vs. female superhero costumes. :-)

From the link:
Aaaaa I dunno. I got tired of guys having no idea why girls find female superhero’s costumes kinda sexist, so I, um, made this?

My main goals were: 1) Make it so the first thing you think of when you look at them is sex, whether you want to or not. 2) make it so that any male human who looks at this feels really uncomfortable. 3) make it funny, because, well, it’s kinda hilarious really.

I don't see how this acquisition makes sense, but I hope they make a kickass product.
 
Facebook is acquiring Oculus VR, the virtual-reality goggle company.

The CTO of Oculus VR is John Carmack (yes, that John Carmack).

Lots of fun in perspective!

+Luuk van Dijk I am pretty sure it was a space giraffe.

And I honestly can't tell if your first comment was ironic. :-P When I posted, it did seem like something finally meaningful had been found.

Getting ready to take a leap and buy Titanfall (PC). The reviews are too good.

EUR 59.99 is quite expensive, given the little time I'll have available to play it. So I looked into other options. I found a bunch on online stores selling activation codes ("CD Keys") for half the price. While they do seem legit, there is no return policy AFAIK. 

And I want to have the option to return the game if it doesn't work well on my 2 years old gaming PC. So, I'll probably just use the official channels.

An interesting perspective.

Quote: I began warning everyone in 1990, in the 90s when Clinton began to move NATO towards Russia, that this was going to lead to exactly what it’s led to. I’ve been writing about this not only in the Nation but in the Washington Post, and in my books, that if we keep this up, we’re like a Western Pac-man heading East, gobbling up all the way until we hit Russia’s border.

Via someone who shared it privately.

UPDATE: argh, newsweek, at least edit the interview properly.  " a military alliance which has it’s political components"

I'm a Site Reliability Engineer and a Go developer.
Introduction
Hi. I'm a Systems Engineer, born in Brazil and living in Zurich with my wife Carla and our two boys.

Things I like to do in my free time:
  • read books. I've been reading quite a lot since I bought a Kindle. See my library in the LibraryThing.
  • write simple open source programs, mostly in the Go programming language. #golang
  • travel. Our family is slowly discovering Europe.
  • PS3 games like Skyrim, MW3 and Diablo 3.
Most of my public posts are in English, but I may occasionally write something in Portuguese. You can use a Google Chrome extension to translate such posts, if you want.
