Holy crap, the long-delayed Mac port of Torchlight II is coming out next week: https://www.youtube.com/watch...
Speaking of Apple, if you’re running OS X Yosemite, you should update ASAP to fix a vulnerability disclosed by Google last week.
Huh, Apple’s "record" quarter isn’t just a record for Apple, it’s a record for all companies ever: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki...
What’s with the lack of snow: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs... I’ve wondered why we use cones of uncertainty for hurricanes, but not for blizzards.

I’ve started a blog series on a silly thing: porting Zork from MDL. Here’s part 1 and part 2: http://marktrapp.com/blog... http://marktrapp.com/blog...

Example: struct language construct in C? 42 lines userland function in MDL. Bitfield construct is 13 lines.
Porting some code from MIT’s Design Language (1971). Keep translating long funcs only to see at the end it’s now a common language feature.
And the audience for the State of the Union maintains its sassiness for the 6th year in a row.
New blog post: Ending work on Jekyll Archive Generator. http://marktrapp.com/blog... There is one big, final release to go along with it, though!

Well that stinks. Apparently Jekyll blessed another archive generator project: https://github.com/jekyll... Lots of wasted effort on my own.

It bothers me a little that iBooks has regular, periodic, app-like updates for books that were published 60 years ago.

Oh dear god. - Meg VMeg
Thanks, Obam—I mean, Cook! - Mark Trapp
WHY!?! The port sure... I can sort of understand that ...but the escape key? - Chris Topher
The escape key is far more useful than caps lock has ever been. Only data entry people care about caps lock. - Jason Huebel
I don't mind the small escape key. I just don't think it should be placed next to the power button. Keep in mind that this is just an artist's rendition. I'd be kinda surprised if they went w/this placement cause if you look at their existing wireless keyboard (which I've been using for years now), it already has a small escape key. And w/the power key where it should belong, on the complete other side of the keyboard next to F12. - rönin
Not to mention that the existing Macbook Airs and Pros have had the small escape key for years now as well. - rönin

Whoa. Everyone assumed that it just didn’t exist, but to navigate backwards in @reederapp’s web view, swipe right on the < in the top left.

I am betting they will release it sometime within the next few months...maybe even hold it for the summer. - Chris Topher
That's what I was wondering: seems nuts to vault it forever. Maybe if they get who's behind it in the US and dissipate the threat. - Mark Trapp
They were careful with their words: "we have decided not to move forward with the planned December 25 theatrical release." Doesn't mean it's never going to have a release and streaming/DVD is still very much in play. - Johnny
If you’re in Portland, Comcast just doubled their download speeds for DOCSIS 3: restart your modem to get them. Went from 60 to 120 down.
Took a while, but I finally finished my write-up of Brandopoly, the thing I was working on for almost a decade: http://marktrapp.com/project...

Wow, really interesting - thanks for writing that up, Mark. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Thanks for checking it out! Been weird to write about something that close to the chest for so long. - Mark Trapp

The molten corgi for WoW’s 10th anniversary. It even yips! http://t.co/LFMIOpemSG

It also scoots along the ground leaving a lava "poop" trail. Feature of the year all years. - Mark Trapp
The best is when gnomes get the corgi and give it the enlarging biscuit. The corgi is bigger than they are! - Jonathan Disher
Haha, just tried it, that's awesome: http://i.imgur.com/gZG5A9F.png Almost even reaches the top of my Nemesis skullcap. - Mark Trapp
@louisgray Facebook imports are fleeting, but FriendFeed is forever.
Me: “Oh Comcast’s not that bad, I should switch to residential service to save money.” <immediate 36 hour outage after switching> “I see.”
Holy Crap, Blizzard used the first few minutes of its BlizzCon keynote to denounce GamerGate.
Maybe don’t call it “Silk Road” next time.
Or, you know, recruit an undercover federal agent to help you run it. - Jennifer Dittrich
That too. Or be in San Francisco instead of a country that doesn't have an extradition treaty with the US. - Mark Trapp from iPhone
Whoa, weed legalization looks like it might pass with flying colors here. 55-45 at 44% reporting and Portland is usually tallied last.
All the major news outlets are calling it in favor, so it's a done deal. - Mark Trapp
Watching X-Files. Episode’s premise: woman game designer creates strong female character that literally kills poor men who play video games.
"Peppermint is objectively better than spearmint! Where’s the ethics in toothpaste journalism!"
Anti-dentites! - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I bet next week there'll be a slew of articles saying they should have their own schools! - Mark Trapp
Followed by an exposé of how spearmint slept with the toothpastenistas to further the cause, no doubt. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Do you think there are toothpaste enthusiasts who get worked up about false claims re: mint flavor like gamers do about dubious FPS claims?

Colbert colluding w/Apple? Where’s the ethics in journalism? Why doesn’t Colbert disclose Cook’s donation to his Patreon? #RedDeliciousGate
