Game Preview: Hearthstone

Evildonald Card Hunter is better (131 comments)

Just as a heads up. The browser-based (Flash) game Card Hunter is better and is incredibly charismatic and fun. It's also free to play and not pay-to-win. It is like someone worked out what game my brain would like the most and made it.

You can pay to get more treasure and to do special quest maps, and the quality is astronomical for a flash-based program.

Penny Arcade also agrees with me about it being awesome!

Seriously, how many times does Sony need to fuck over consumers before they stop buying their products? If you bought a Sony product and they fucked you over, why are you surprised? They do something like this every year!

Jammie Thomas Hit With $1.5 Million Verdict

Evildonald Re:Outside of the design of the system (764 comments)

I don't see how this ruling isn't unconstitutional at least. Anyone who thinks this fine isn't excessive should be declared insane.

The Time Travel Paradoxes of Back To the Future

Evildonald A hovering car is not travelling at 88Mph (454 comments)

What about the biggest hole? The fact that at the end of BTTF 2, when Doc is floating in the Delorean and struck by lightning, he is not travelling at 88 Mph! He travels backwards in time while just hovering. The speed is a myth!

Self-publishing a contraversial e-book

Evildonald Evildonald writes  |  about 3 years ago

Evildonald (983517) writes "My father is publishing a book that is too hot to publish in his home country. He will be exempt from prosecution as long as the book is not published or is directly for sale in the state that it is discussing.

We will be initially publishing on Amazon and Barnes and Noble e-book, but I am concerned that they might bow to legal pressure (whether it has jurisdiction or not) and stop sale of his book.

To protect ourselves, and to have a fallback, what other services are there out there for selling your own e-book? Are there e-publishers that are militantly resistant to legal takedowns? Is there an open-source project that has been made to self-publish reliably?

Please help my dad."

Working in the US

Evildonald Evildonald writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Evildonald writes "I'm an Australian-British programmer (, don't hate me) who has recently married an American girl and I am moving to the United States (more accurately to Boston). I've heard that outside of Silicon Valley, that Boston has the most number of startup tech companies, which is the sort of work that really floats my boat. My questions to my esteemed colleagues are: 1. How do I find startup companies to work for? 2. Has anyone any advice for a new job seeker in the states from the Uk or Australia? 3. Is the recession affecting the market badly?"
