Watching X-Files. Episode’s premise: woman game designer creates strong female character that literally kills poor men who play video games.
I think there’s only one game I backed that actually released on time, and it turned out to be awful. Not regretting stopping last year.
Shroud of the Avatar is the 6th I’ve backed on Kickstarter that’s decided release = "put half-finished, months-delayed game on Early Access"
"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
"Games are beautiful, they are creative, they are worlds to immerse yourself in. They are art. And..." - http://marklr.com/post...
“ Games are beautiful, they are creative, they are worlds to immerse yourself in. They are art. And they are worth fighting for, even if the atmosphere is ugly right now. A small minority are putting up barbed wire walls between us who love games. And that is sad. Because odds are 99% certain that those guys on the street who I avoided would have been awesome to talk to. I realize that letting the actions of a few hateful people influence my behavior is the absolutely worst thing I could do in life. And not an example I want to set, ever. So to myself and to everyone else who operates out of love not vengeance: Don’t abandon games. Don’t cross the street. Gaming needs you. To create, to play, to connect. ” - Felicia Day, “The Only Thing I Have To Say About Gamer Gate” - Mark Trapp
Do you think there are toothpaste enthusiasts who get worked up about false claims re: mint flavor like gamers do about dubious FPS claims?

To fix the problem the script purportedly addresses, uncheck "Spotlight Suggestions" and "Bing Searches" from the Spotlight prefpane. (2/2)
There’s a script going around to "restore privacy" to OS X Yosemite. Don’t blindly run scripts. (1/2)
In an official election, I just voted for weed. Never thought I’d say that in my lifetime, yet here we are.

One last Continuity tip: the dialer app on Mac and iPad is FaceTime. Just type any number instead of an email address.
If continuity/handoff still isn’t working after checking the box in General sign out of iCloud & back in. Was a recurring problem in the DPs
Yosemite tip: for Handoff, make sure it’s checked in General prefpane. If not there, your computer doesn’t support it http://t.co/Uy65dTsnC2

FYI: the final build of Yosemite (14A389) is different than GM 3 (14A388a) & you need to manually download it. Software Update won’t work.

Not sure if says more about me or the new iPad that I really thought the iPad Air already have 2 GB of RAM and TouchID. Seems a year late.

"The real problem is [Christina Hoff Sommers’s] claim that because girls don’t play games..." - http://marklr.com/post...
“The real problem is [Christina Hoff Sommers’s] claim that because girls don’t play games anyway, and boys do, it’s only natural that game makers would tend to include sexy women in their products. This launches fundamental economic precepts so directly into the sun that it cannot be accidental. You’ve got a growing base of women playing games and evidence that college women aren’t playing games at the same rate as men; that’s evidence of a massive untapped body of game players who should be catered to directly, not that gaming should run far and fast back the way it came and hope the girls never find it. This is the shallow reasoning that allows arguments like, “Duh, video games are a business” to fester in comment sections. Of course they’re a business—and this is bad business by any measure.” - Kyle Wagner, “The Future Of The Culture Wars Is Here, And It’s Gamergate”, on the disingenuity of the GG movement - Mark Trapp
I just can't, with any of this. - Meg VMeg
Oh so THAT'S the real problem. Now I get it. - lris
It's crazy, Meg: over video games. VIDEO GAMES. Iris: d'oh, I should've excerpted the quotation better; the "real problem" is in comparison to the other problems with Sommers's argument that Wagner listed in the preceding paragraph. - Mark Trapp
Never mind got it - WarLord

Ah WoW, you got me again. Added a ton of features that sounded cool, but they’re all half-implemented with inscrutable restrictions.

For the Oct 16th event, Apple will certainly announce new hardware/Yosemite GM, but what about a rebranding back to the old 6 color logo?

Every cop is so indiscriminately & over-the-top corrupt on Gotham that it really makes holding a suspension of disbelief almost impossible.
It's kinda like a reverse Batman '66 where all the cops, including Commissioner Gordon, were so bubblegum that it's like they've never seen a regular murder or real crime. - Johnny
That's a good comparison. Between their collusion with organized crime, apathy towards resolving crimes in any direction, and their brutality towards suspects, it's seems like their only motivation is "I hate whatever Gordon likes and like anything Gordon doesn't." - Mark Trapp
