Planescape Torment is coming in an updated ("enhanced") edition! Basically it's bug fixes and improved high-resolution graphics. I already have the original version and have only played through the very first part so far. I can simply just keep playing the original.

But somehow I ended up preordering the new version instead. I am weak.

Succinct summary of Britain and EU. 

So I finished XCOM 2 a week ago, after an unplanned interruption.

Now I'm playing ... XCOM 2. This time with the "Alien Hunters" DLC and using "Ironman" mode. Which means there is no reloading when something goes wrong. This really changes the game for the better. Even routine missions become tense and important, and I play a lot more conservatively, trying to avoid risk rather than taking chances. If you haven't, give ironman mode a try.

I think this, no, I hope this is the latest Private Eye front cover.

Vår Jagvetintevaddenheter har börjat blomma, trots att dom enligt uppgift inta ska kunna det här på Okinawa. Men den har stått på en skuggig bakgård och vintern har visst varit ovanligt kall i år, och det har kanske räckt för att få igång den .

Passed my ITIL Foundations certification course today. So IT, very enterprise.

Bra krönika om SD och deras anhängare.

So, Hangouts seem to be going away. Problem is, I use Hangouts for occasional video chats with my wife, and for my remote Japanese lessons.

Any recommendation for a video system that is cross-platform (ideally runs in the browser), and also available for Android; simple enough to use that non-technical users can just click-and-go; and that does not require your to register your phone number or anything like that?

A new machine learning paper: "Stopping GAN Violence: Generative Unadversarial Networks."

"Under this framework, we simultaneously train two models: a generator G that does its best to capture whichever data distribution it feels it can manage, and a motivator M that helps G to achieve its dream. Fighting is strictly verboten and both models evolve by learning to respect their differences."

"Unlike previous generators which were content with simply reaching this goal, our generator is more motivated and gives it ‘110%’ moving it a further 10% past the data distribution. While this isn’t terribly helpful from a modelling perspective, we think it shows the right attitude."
