Valve Rolls Out Game Broadcasting Service For Steam

Lije Baley Re: I guess it shows that Valve as a company .... (92 comments)

Steam is to games what the DVR is to television. It is this level of convenience, in the purchase and use of games, that defines Steam. Other platforms had this, but failed to develop it the way Steam has, and they will never catch up. Valve doesn't need Episode 3.

It's Time To Revive Hypercard

Lije Baley Re:For the rest of us (299 comments)

More like VB 5, but with updated functionality and examples in the integrated help which actually work. From what I remember, VB 6 was a step backwards in ease of use.

Mixing Agile With Waterfall For Code Quality

Lije Baley duh (133 comments)

You just need to use the right mix for the type of project you have, with the main factors being the amount of unknowns and the level of complexity. Iteration is necessary to understand the unknowns, and high-level design/planning is necessary to tame complexity. Just be open-minded, like the fathers of agile intended, and avoid methodology "religions" like Scrum and its multitude of counterparts on the waterfall side.

Lije Baley Re: TI calculators are not outdated, just overpri (359 comments)

I just bought a TI-84 Plus Silver C for my son last night. It has a higher res screen with color and a bunch more memory, and it was $99 at Target. Dead easy to graph with too.

Xbox One Will Play Media from USB Devices, DLNA Servers

Lije Baley Re:I love competition. (112 comments)

This sounds better than the PS3, and I second your hope that it spurs Sony to expand beyond their gaming focus on PS4. I fear, however that neither will ever turn out to be the HTPC we've been dreaming of for the last 10 years.
