Where's My Chainsaw? is a game about life in the zombie apocalypse, which of course means it is full of adventure and hilarity. Players compete to see who can achieve victory, or at least to see who will be the last one alive...

Inspired by the possibilities found in Munchkin but frustration with its gameplay relying on random luck, "Where's My Chainsaw?" is a strategy-based evolution that minimizes randomness and emphasizes social interaction. You'll also find many added game mechanics we've loved over the years, such as varying win conditions, multiple forms of currency, and a strong comeback mechanic to ensure everyone stays in the game. Are you curious what a "take-that" game would be like if it was designed for serious gamers? So were we!

The first 3 minutes of this video talks about the importance of Automated Continuous Delivery. It tells the story of Knight Capital Group, who, in 2012, lost 460 Million Dollars in 45 minutes, all because some person doing the deploy made a mistake on 1 out of the 9 servers he was deploying to.

I don't know how good the rest of the video is, because I haven't watched it yet. I thought it was worth sharing after the first 3 minutes.

Spent part of my day home sick creating a Stylish for Amazon Echo desktop app based on material design. It's a start.
