I made a website for calculating Diablo 3 damage and comparing weapons. Hopefully someone finds it useful.

I'd watch it.

Made it safely into 2012. Will report back when I find gold.

Uninstalled Java, and suddenly Firefox starts up and closes in 2 seconds, rather than the 2 minutes I'd got used to.

Managed to break my T-key when cleaning out the poor 10-year-old keyboard I've been using since forever, so I got a new one. Word on the street is that mechanical keyboards are the shit, so I went for the relatively cheap QPad MK-50 (http://www.corporate.qpad.se/modules/news/article.php?storyid=252). It seems nice enough so far, apart from the annoying blue LEDs (please stop using these, manufacturers), but will take some getting used to.

I've recorded a little webcam video if anyone's curious about how the keys sound when typing. This keyboard uses the Cherry MX Red switches.

Tried letting dad play the single-player campaign in Battlefield 3 with a gamepad. First map has a tutorial where you have to hold on to your gun through a quick time event. Tried alllll the buttons! Over and over! Still died!

Googling yields:
"Note that Quick Time Event inputs do not work on a plugged in gamepad if you are using such an interface device on the PC. You will need the keyboard and mouse buttons instead."

Cannot facepalm hard enough. Good work, Dice.

Kenshin trailer.

Argued whether it was faster to find out your (public) IP by googling it with "ip" or by using ipconfig in a command window.

Turns out google.com and google.se handle the request completely differently -- in the case of google.com, google itself will show your IP immediately, whereas you only get external search results from google.se.

Thanks for nothing, Swedish Google!
