First time I've felt sick since I started exercising 6 months ago. That's probably a good thing - it's been a while longer than usual. Don't feel any less crap though ;-)

I love my Apple TV, but I'm always confused about the pricing/formats. Today I can download XMen First Class for 9.99 on iTunes, but not HD. Or I can rent it for 3.49, presumably to watch on my Mac or Apple TV; again, no HD. If I fire up Apple TV I can rent it for 4.49, in HD. It's a mystery to me why there is so much choice; why not rent or buy in HD, with the same price?
It's way better than Love Film though, which streams with such low quality to my TV as to be unwatchable.... sigh.

I like my Apple TV but only as a radio/youtube/vimeo device.

Every time I lose a bit of weight I want to take a new photo! I'm so vain... I can no longer call myself a fat geek. Sniff.

Will be fun to read through; and nice that it's on github...

The id tech DOOM3 engine is officially gpl and screaming for you to hack. Learn what an AAA fps game engine looks like. Peek at the source code of a #gamedev legend. Roll your eyes at patent trolls for the missing stencil shadow (Carmack's reverse) algorithm. Make your own mega hardcore first person shooter for free, and leverage industrial-strength, non-beta, well tested code and top-tier art creation tools. Enjoy!

I've been using this site quite a bit the last week or so; it's a great way to learn chinese characters. Nicely done.

The show seemed a bit lost without him, and didn't really make much sense tbh.

American Go Yearbook, now published as a PDF. I used to get a paper copy, but sometimes it didn't arrive, so PDF works for me...

This is a great talk on how Microsoft designed the touch interface in Windows 8; some interesting insights. It builds a lot on what was learned from iPad, but I think it makes a lot of sense. He's a good speaker too...

Hi there. That was a great talk, which is high praise from me as I'm not a big MS fan these days. It does seem that the ethos of actually being responsive and not freezing every few seconds has finally taken root (UI on a separate thread from IO and heavy lifting? That would be good!). I'm looking forward to giving it a go. I also think his comments about the near future ubiquity of touch screens is very interesting - about time, too.

Story
Tagline
Geek, Coder, Photographer, Runner, Musician of Sorts. A graphics guy marauding as a PhysX guy @ NVIDIA
Introduction
I like to try lots of different things.  My day job is working at NVIDIA on PhysX, and in the past on FX Composer.  I also have a company, Snarl Software, which makes iPhone games
I like to play several different musical instruments, but strive to get better on French Horn and Piano.
I've recently got into stone sculpture, which I love.
I'm addicted to playing Go, mainly because I'm useless at it, and I'm attracted to anything that is challenging (hence the French Horn playing...)
