Oh hello, I forgot you were here. A week of Fringe craziness will do that to a person's mind.

Gmail preview pane is lovely. Go to "labs" in gmail options, and search for "preview pane".

You know what free game you should play? This one. This one right here. Because you've been just dying to play a chase the screen game where you're in a spaceship trying to not be burnt to a crisp in the sun, and now I have made it for you.

I just put a "developer's commentary" feature in to my next game. I should probably have written more of the actual game to commentate on first.

Awesome! Always wanted to do that for our stuff too, and always love it in other games. The Monkey Island 2 SE on iPad's commentary so far is my fave.

Hooray, another social network for me to spam friends with work stuff on! (Does this thing have business pages yet?)

Samuel L Ipsum text generator.
Samuel L Ipsum is an alternative Lorem Ipsum Generator, it uses quotes from films which Samuel L Jackson has starred in place of the standard ipsum text.

Totally defeats the purpose, doesn't it? Everyone will just read the awesome text instead of look at the layout.

Or how about, 'Joyless Tedium Studios'. I bet that would turn people away in droves, but there would probably be less pitchforks than my earlier suggestion.

Okay Google, why can't I put circles as members of circles? Say I want a "games industry" circle that I want to break down in to departments.

I shall ask the same question of them. I'm guessing they will only take notice of feedback if they here the same thing from lots of people.

[edit] I just looked at the feedback link. It doesn't appear to be for that sort of feedback. just for sending screen grabs of bugs as far as I can tell.

Game designers & artists - the British Library is wanting to chat to you about the resources they have, and what other things you would like them to offer. Let me know if you're interested. (I talked to them, so it's not just about people actually in London, though obviously you guys would be more likely to get use out of it.)

Most of my google plus stream is people asking questions about, or saying things they want in, google plus. It's the meta-iest social medium.
