I’ve been quiet lately. Illnesses and time in hospitals are partly to blame, but so has “GamerGate”, the elephant in the room that I’ve been reluctant to talk about. GamerGate is a mixed-bag of intractable stuff, much of it (at best) misguided, and (at…

The site started getting denial-of-service attacks within about a half an hour of posting, but it is hanging in there... mostly.

Could be interesting. Might not. It's just a contextless teaser-advert at the moment. Nothing really to talk about yet, I guess.

After about two years, Dwarf Fortress – the most intricate world-simulation sandbox ever – has seen a major release, and an astonishing amount has been added to the game. New additions include new plants and animals, more complex trees, more interesting…

Seems to be a good quarter for indie gamers. FTL also saw a major update after what seemed like ages, and Spacebase DF8 and Starbound have been updated practically every fortnight since they were both patched to allow easier updates. Also: Zailors? On The Sunless Sea. The current Early Access beta has lots of unfinished content and rough edges, but is still lovable.

And none of those "stealth downgrade" and "worthless DLC" shenanigans big game companies are pulling all around.

Earlier this month, Elliot Rodger (22) made a short video and wrote a 137 page manifesto before going on a killing spree in Santa Barbara, killing six people before dying himself. Rodger is variously described as a geek, a gamer, and a sexist. And you…

The saying goes “even a stopped clock gives the right time twice a day”. The implication is that no matter how wrong you are, how broken your reasoning, or how unfounded your opinion, once in a while (by chance) you’ll be right about something. There’s…

I just used it as a convenient and topical example.

Last night’s widespread outage of iinet, Australia’s second-largest Internet Service Provider, was bad enough. For hours, very few of iinet’s customers had any access to the assorted services that they were paying for due to a cooling failure at an iinet…

The Second Life Terms of Service (ToS) comprise over 45,000 words, spread across roughly 20 documents (including Wiki pages), all of which you must warrant that you’ve read and understood and agreed to before you can access Second Life or its forums. I…

That seems like a fairly simple question on the surface, and – in many senses – it actually is fairly simple, with fairly simple answers. You have to think it through a little bit to actually get to that simplistic core, however.

The other day, travelling from an unfamiliar part of town back home through heavy traffic, I decided to just let Google Maps call the shots. I could have navigated myself, just using major routes that went towards areas I knew, but I decided to see what…

I've certainly seen the Waze accident reports. But stand alone they aren't granular enough to give you a good picture of surface traffic. Vehicular geopositioning is something I do know a little about, being a private pilot and operator of the K3XS-9 mobile APRS station. I have logged contacts with ISS on orbit, as well.
