John Romero On Reinventing the Shooter
Praising one-man work (Minecraft), then "if only some brilliant designers take the lessons from Minecraft" (aka like Romero, right?), then it would elevate the genre and the gaming scene etc etc.
Hey Romero, people have already been creating/playing with the environment, if you want to "refine", better start working and stop talking, others are ahead in the game.
Which desktop environment do you like the best?

Start-Up Founders On Dealing With Depression
Because then it's not physical, it's psychological. My doctor told me the other day.
Quarks Know Their Left From Their Right
hmm I'd rather have olives and feta, the one true taste combo.
New Zealand Spy Agency Deleted Evidence About Its Illegal Spying On Kim Dotcom
It will be cool to see the comments in the thousands, even if all are screaming in unison the same two words.. "Fuck beta".
But seriously, fuck beta and you're not google: shove it down our throats and many of us will be out.

Ask Slashdot: Should More Math and Equations Be Used In the Popular Press?
There's a counterpoint to that. When the relationships get a bit more complicated ( inversely proportional to the square of the log in the power of the absolute whatever that was), the linear and verbose form of text is not as helpful as a neat equation. You can 'read' it with your eyes multiple times really quickly to absorb all the relationships and see the bigger picture of what the formula says.
How Did You Learn How To Program?
Early nineties, XCom Apocalypse has been announced, so in excitement after playing XCom Terror From The Deep I start up BASIC and start drawing a logo of XCom Apocalypse using line commands.
Well, I've ended up working as a computer programmer specialized in graphics. But I'm probably still as inefficient in getting the job done :D
'CodeSpells' Video Game Teaches Children Java Programming
From the dictionary: "to become thoroughly proficient"
I think I need an hour of CodeSpells and I can add Java proficiency to my CV; I've only spend a hundred hours coding in it, so I've set my skill as "exposed to" instead.
Ask Slashdot: How Do You Stay Fit At Work?
First of all reduce the crap that you're consuming, that's quite important as you can understand. That said, whatever applies to you:
- Walk/Cycle to work
- Use stairs whenever you find the chance (ascending only, be kind to your knees)
- Take breaks to go for a walk
- Go running after work (run to home perhaps?)

The only thing that will eviscarate is their profits from Xbox 720 sales.
Amazon Patents 'Maintaining Scarcity' of Goods
For my digital goods, I can find other ... marketplaces. Without DRM, reselling issues, artificial 'used' tags and more neverending crap. Guess what, they are cheaper too.
Microsoft Makes Direct X 11.1 a Windows 8 Exclusive
We won't give a shit soon enough. I switched to DirectX a few years ago, as OpenGL 2.1 was getting to my nerves due to everything breaking with new drivers. Well, DX11 ain't pretty either. Lots of drivers bugs when shaders get .. hairy.
OpenGL has now caught on, DirectX is trying to push Win8 (I have it for free being a student but no thanks, not installing that), PIX is not working very well anyway for complex shaders, so bye bye won't miss you, back to GL.
Climate Change Could Drive Coffee To Extinction By 2080
Bullshit. I drink enough coffee (4-5 mugs per day), but my 'morning cup' is 3h after I wake up. And I can function just fine. I'm sure I'm not that special.

Anonymous Helps Turn In Hacker Who Targeted Charity
I can speak for Greece: you move out when you get married, or if you can make a living and have had enough living with your parents. The latter is more frequent when you go to a university in a different city, be forced to live by yourself, and then rediscover the 'beauty' of living with your parents. The crisis has been skewing the staying-with-mom age range, as you'd be a fool (or desperate) to start paying more than half of your wage for rent/bills while you have a house around already.
Contest To Sequence Centenarians Kicks Off
This isn't a troll, this is how many rational, educated people in government think about the elderly problem. Let's have some real discussion instead of burying real-world opinions with which we disagree.
So I assume these rational and educated people, after they retire, they would live in a small flat for a few years and would happily give their lives away to save money for the goverment? I don't think that's the case dude. Working for the better part of your life, and when you can't work you should die? Well if you support that, start with your parents. Let us know how that goes :)
Why Is Wikipedia So Ugly?
"There's one thing Wikipedia could learn from Facebook, which is less about attractiveness and more about user-friendliness. Facebook -- and Twitter, and Tumblr, and similar sites -- have built followings in part because of their exceedingly simple interfaces"
Yes, but at what cost?
