Designing the Best Board Game
When you are close to the end of your own play testing phase you need to build multiple prototypes.
If you want to get the word out to people about your game, particularly sites that review games and recommend them to potential crowd funding audience is that you must have betas you can send to people.
And don't underestimate the time required to develop, build and create a beta for your game, in-house playtesting can take months of refinement. Review feedback is going to add a new cycle of changes / testing.
It's a big investment both in time and materials even before you reach out for funding, and after all that you may not be able to reach your goal, so be prepared for that up front.

Indie Game Jam Show Collapses Due To Interference From "Pepsi Consultant"
It's worse than just in-yo-face endorsement, it was active incitement to try to turn something actually interesting into yet another contrived "reality" show.
It was easy for them to push peoples' buttons, what was unexpected (and the most interesting part of this whole debacle IMO) is that rather than sit there and be harassed by assholes everybody just walked out.
I hope that Maker Studios learnt something from this experience and keep tight watch on outside "consultants" so that the next time it will stay true to the spirit of what was attempted and make something really worth watching

-Old people breakin' hips

IDC: PC Shipments Decline Worse Than Forecasted, No Recovery Expected
I have tons of storage, good AV playback, lots of apps that do what I want, games still play pretty well (or are a video card update away)
I have two machines currently, the newest one is reaching the 4 and half year mark and it's still fast / reliable. The other has been kicking around for 7+ and even that still runs all my productivity software / backup storage.
I mean a decade ago I was cycling about every 2 years but there were a lot of leaps between those generations usually.
I mean I've thought about building a whole new machine again but I can't justify it when I have existing stuff doing everything I want right here.
