"Uhm, isn't that super creepy, even for us?"

Honestly the most hilarious pointless revenge I have ever seen writ large across a whole continent. Legendary :)

±8 years after killing google readers and announcing the death of RSS, Google decided to integrate RSS again in their Chrome browser:

Well, we didn't wait for them to realize that RSS is not dead…

Uhm, that didn't take long:

The techlash is a bust

After three and a half years, the U.S. backlash against tech's biggest firms has failed to dent or daunt them. Their profits are up across the board and they sit on massive hoards of cash.

Just finished doing Doom 2 (Gzdoom and the super fun Hellrider weapon mod) from start to finish on a pretty easy mode, for the first time in at least a decade.

The Hell Levels are way better in terms of design than I remember, Barrels O' Fun is an awesome wanker, The Spirit World was a tasty really surreal design with invisible walls, and The Living End really pushed the boat out in terms of design and scale.

First chunk is also good, middle chunk good but weakest with a few gotcha levels.
