Ubuntu Gets Container-Friendly "Snappy" Core

binarylarry Re:20 years? (149 comments)

It'd be fucking great if old Mark decided to instead ship some stable, mature software once.

I'm fucking sick of Ubuntu Unity freezing, locking up or getting stuck (lol you're stuck between workspaces and can't do anything about it but reboot or bounce Xorg!)

Ralph H. Baer, a Father of Video Gaming, Dies At 92

binarylarry Farewell, Ralph (47 comments)

Ralph Baer

There I was back in the wild again.
I felt right at home, where I be-long.
I had the feeling, coming over me again.
Just like it happened so many times be-fore. eh.
The Spirit of the Codes is like an old good friend.
Makes me feel warm and good in-side.
I knew his name and it was good to see him again.
Cause in the wind he's still a-live.
Oh Ralph Baer
Walk with me down the codetrails again.
Take me back, back where I be-long.
Ralph Baer
I'm glad to have you at my side my friend
And I'll join you in the bug hunt before too long
Before too long.
It was kinda dark, another misty dusk
It came from a tangle down be-low.
I tried to re-mem-ber everything you taught me so well.
I had to de-cide which way to go.
Was I a-lone or in a gamer's dream.
Cause the moment of truth was here and now.
I felt his touch I felt his guiding hand.
The game was mine forever more!!
Oh Ralph Baer
Walk with me down the codetrails again.
Take me back, back where I be-long.
Ralph Baer
I'm glad to have you at my side my friend
And I'll join you in the bug hunt before too long
Before too long.
We're not alone when we're in the great outdoors
We got his spirit We got his soul
He will guide our steps and our breakpoints home
The restless spirit still roams
Oh Ralph Baer
Walk with me down the codetrails again.
Take me back, back where I be-long.
Ralph Baer
I'm glad to have you at my side my friend
And I'll join you in the bug hunt before too long
Before too long.

Blender 2.5 Stable Release

binarylarry binarylarry writes  |  more than 3 years ago

binarylarry (1338699) writes "The Blender Foundation and online developer community is proud to present Blender 2.57. This is the first stable release of the Blender 2.5 series, representing the culmination of many years of redesign and development work.

We name this version "Stable" not only because it's mostly feature complete, but especially thanks to the 1000s of fixes and feature updates we did since the 2.5 beta versions were published.

The next 2 months we will keep working on finishing a couple of left-over 2.5 targets and we expect to get feedback and bug reports from users to handle as well. If all goes well, the 2.58 version then can be the final release of the 2.5 series, with a massive amount of new projects to be added for an exciting cycle of 2.6x versions. Target is to release updates every 2 months this year."

Stardock rescinds "Gamers Bill of Rights"

binarylarry binarylarry writes  |  more than 4 years ago

binarylarry (1338699) writes "Stardock’s own Gamer’s Bill of Rights is no longer to be found on their site. That’d be the Bill of Rights featuring the proud bulletpoint:

“2. Gamers shall have the right to demand that games be released in a finished state.”

You used to be able to find the bill right here.

PC Gamer are up in arms about it being unfinished in a similar manner to earlier Stardock release, DemiGod, which also came out earlier than its announced release date. PCG go on to quote a post from Stardock CEO Brad Wardell on the Quarter to Three forums in which he responds to a displeased customer, seemingly in absolute contradiction of his own Rule #2:

“the hostility in this thread exceeds my own tolerance for putting up with said hostility.

Also, to anyone, like you Ben, saying the game is like an “early beta” then well, please stay away from our games in the future. I consider it ready for release and if others disagree, don’t buy our games.”

We’ve contacted Stardock for a comment and are awaiting a response."

Apple bans Adobe CS5 Flash Compiler

binarylarry binarylarry writes  |  more than 4 years ago

binarylarry (1338699) writes "Looks like Adobe's release of CS5 with the Flash-to-native compiler has been nixed by Apple's new user agreement:

"3.3.1 — Applications may only use Documented APIs in the manner prescribed by Apple and must not use or call any private APIs."

When did Apple become the most evil technology company on the planet? I bet the folks at Google are feeling really good about Android's future prospects. This ban also affects MonoTouch and other non Objective-C development platforms for the iPhone/iPad and similar Apple devices."
