Excellent article on some great FPS games. Agree with many of the games on the list but honestly they could have said "blah, blah, blah" for all I cared so long as Doom was number one.

Happy Hobbit Day!

Just got the new U2 album in my iTunes library. While I appreciate the album (it's free!), I would really have preferred an email or something to let me know about this ahead of time. I spent a few panicked minutes worried that my account was hacked and someone purchased something without my permission. Not cool!

Nice to finally have some rain in Seoul. Quite pleasant.

This "How It should have ended" video was really spot on. Got a lot of laughs from this.

Interesting article on what may have contributed towards the "goto fail" bug on iOS. This article takes the stance that the language you use makes a big difference: that is, some languages are better to use and others just shouldn't be used. The argument is that C-style languages distinguish between single statement and multi-statement blocks, whereas other languages (hint: Eiffel, the language created by the author of the article) don't distinguish which means the equivalent of "if (condition) print(a)" would be written in a similar style to "if (condition) { print(a); b = c; }". In these non C-style languages, the extra "goto" statement would have caused either a compilation error or would have visually stood out to the programmer.

Other languages that come to mind that do similar seem to be Python (with explicit whitespace indentation) and Go (where "for" loops and "if" statements always get braces whether they contain a single statement or more http://golang.org/ref/spec#For_statements, http://golang.org/ref/spec#If_statements). I think Ruby would fit the bill too (with it's begin/end pairs), but I'm not familiar enough to be sure.
