Principles of good tower defense design - Mark Trapp
Sad news, as I have also cancelled my 7-years-in-development project codenamed "Titan". Like Blizzard, I too have nothing to show for it.
Two of the top 5 hottest summers on record happened in the 5 years since I moved here: http://koin.com/2014... I’m very sorry, Portland.

It was damn hot while I was there this summer. But I grew up in portland and I remember it getting quite hot. - Todd Hoff
My experience is limited, but this summer was something else: lots of week-long stretches of low-to-mid 90 degree days. It reminded me of the stuff we'd get when I was living in New York: Portland even had a number of thunderstorms this year. In the other years that I've been here, there'd be 2 or 3 100+ days, but heat waves would only be 2-3 days long and there'd only be 3 or 4 in the season. - Mark Trapp
"The [Final Fantasy XV] party will only have male characters": http://www.siliconera.com/2014... Every FF except the first has had woman PCs. Ugh.

Incidentally, I apparently own at least a half dozen copies of Bastion.
Huh, Humble Bundle now has an "Unredeemed Keys" section. Found ~15 games I never added to Steam: must’ve been added after I stopped checking
So are we all just going to ignore that Epic Games, the makers of Unreal, made a Flappy Bird clone? http://t.co/wgt2rkTXZw

Well, it only took 2 hours, but finally re-entered every password on the new iPhone. Ugh again.
RE: TouchID, it seems like even when it’s enabled, you can bypass it with the PIN or password, so again, what’s the point?
Ease of use. - rönin
I could see that if it worked every time. In setting up this new iPhone, I've been asked to authenticate about 15 or so times, but only 6 of those times was I prompted for TouchID. And it seems arbitrary as to which OS auth prompts are allowed to have TouchID: it's secure enough when changing billing information, but not secure enough when logging into iCloud? It's the same account! - Mark Trapp
iPhone password migration, ugh. 1) restore from other iPhone reset keychain, 2) TouchID can’t be used half the time, so what’s the point?
I think I just heard the iPhone 6 scoff at the iPhone 5 next to it.

If you submit a patch/PR to a project, be prepared that you may have to update it based on feedback.
As an OSS maintainer, I’m always surprised when people go radio silent after submitting a patch/PR, particularly when it’s not committable.
So that was fun. Who’s up next? Catalonia? South Tyrol?
Cataluña certainly wants to have a referendum. - Spidra Webster
Looks like Venice is in the running, too: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... - Mark Trapp
Interesting. I hadn't heard of that but Lega Nord has long been about separating Italy. The North pimped the South out for years to get international aid in the '50s onward. But the aid was siphoned off and the well-off North would like to conveniently leave the South behind. At least that was my impression of things. - Spidra Webster
California? - Eivind
@kfury The queen’s top hat?
Psh, Scotland and its “democracy”. If this was a dictatorship, the results would’ve been announced yesterday.
Oracle is turning into the beginning of season 4 in Scrubs: https://www.youtube.com/watch...
Continuity for iOS/Yosemite is okay, but all I ever wanted was a shared clipboard, and of course that’s missing.
Odd bit of timing that out here in the west—8 hours behind—will likely know the Scottish verdict the same time we’d know US election results
Let's build a browser engine! - http://limpet.net/mbrubec...
Walkthrough of building a browser engine in Rust - Mark Trapp
I’m for Scottish independence purely so there’s a chance at replacing "balkanization" with "britishization". "Britishislization"?
The former. It's got more shizl -- for rizl! - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
But Balkan's already done it a second time since the term was coined. Seems unfair they should lose it to a minor balkanization like this. - Eivind
Side-eye at Apple’s order status: stuck at "preparing for shipment" for 3 days.
Huh, Yosemite developer seed today is DP8, not GM. Looks like we won’t be seeing a release until mid-October.
So what’s everyone pre-ordering? 6 or 6 Plus?
A barbacoa Chipotle burrito bowl. - Spidra Webster
Hm, does that come with a one-handed mode? - Mark Trapp
Burrito sans bowl would lend itself to one-handed use. - Spidra Webster

Force touch will be one of the new jedi powers featured in Star Wars Episode VII.

RT @jeffgerstmann: Unfortunately, the Apple Watch can only be used to listen to Coldplay.
RT @jeffgerstmann: Wasn’t in the market for a new phone, but look at that lizard!
Perhaps the worst thing about this is the inevitable competitors making terrible jokes about the overdub in their future keynotes.
