Wanna know more about the driver skills of Mike Capps? And what does John Carmack teach his son in his free-time?

Debugging this is interesting, to say the least:

AND!! We’ve settled with Bethesda! Yaaaay! <3

The settlement is that we give them the trademark, get to keep the name, and won’t make an elder scrolls competitor using the name.

The actual document I signed was like a billion pages, so at least we know a bunch of lawyers got rich. Good, wouldn’t want them to starve.

Saw this roadsign in Napa and proceeded to do donuts (slowly) in the road as instructed. Wine may have played a role.

History Channel is great. My seven year old son: “Did you SEE all those weapons Alexander had??? He totally EVAPORATED the Persians!!!”

Ok, the inevitable happened. Last night, my PS Vita turned into another device I play Plants vs Zombies on. I think I’m addicted.

Packing for a multi-week trip. Stared at my suitcase a while, gave up, and packed 5 identical black shirts. I hope black is the new black.

You’d be surprised…

This great comic has just come to my mind again. Was sent to me by my supervisor at Kiel University while I was working on my bachelor thesis…

“You’d be surprised how many times the Cook-Levin theorem was used in making the Halo 3 Engine.”


Past weekend at the Global Game Jam someone sent me a hilarious 4-minute-talk by Gary Bernhardt about strange behaviour of dynamic languages – Ruby and JavaScript in this case. Do you know what happens if you add an object to an empty array in JavaScript? Check it out!
