- NetNewsWire public beta I've been running it for the last day, and it's stable and fast. Syncing to my Feedbin account works great; the Feedbin web UI is usable, but especially the last redesign leaves me somewhat annoyed, and it has very limited keybindings. NNW also has local OPML subscriptions, if you don't need to … Continue reading "NetNewsWire is Back!"Read More »

- previously Finally decided on the server, Mankrik. It's PVE, EST, 60%+ Horde. Not happy with the EST, but according to the reddit surveys the PST options were low-population and almost totally Alliance. I won't play PVP servers: Levelling in PVP-only zones is a tedious nightmare of some asshole 20 levels above you killing you over … Continue reading "World of Warcraft Classic Naming Day"Read More »
- New Netflix UFO first contact series. It's rare that a show flunks out with me as fast as this one has. Maybe I'm unfair, maybe I have impossible standards of mediocre TV. Certainly my tolerance for bullshit like FTL, non-functional starships, and implausible human social structures in SF decreases asymptotically with the newness of the … Continue reading "What I'm Not Watching: Another Life"Read More »
- Losing The Eternal Blue Sky, NPR: Excellent photo-essay on Mongolia's changing economy & environment.Read More »
- Space Prison, by Tom Godwin More commonly known for his short story "The Cold Equations", which has been infuriating people who think life is fair and kind for 65 years, he wrote a number of other novels and short stories. I've read this probably 20-30 years ago, but not as a single piece since then. … Continue reading "What I'm Reading: Space Prison, by Tom Godwin"Read More »
- There's been a pre-launch stress test open now until Monday, so I levelled a test character: I got to the red mohawk in char creation, and somehow flashed back to Return of the Killer Tomatoes and named him FuzzyTomato, which would've been an almost topical joke back in 2004. And it's been fantastic. The game … Continue reading "What I'm Playing: World of Warcraft Classic"Read More »
- I forgot about these when writing What I'm Watching: Expanse S3, but these annoyed me to no end: During high-G maneuvers, Prax's suit hose gets cut, and he immediately can't breathe. Amos unplugs his suit and gets up, spends 2 minutes crawling over to him and plugging it back in. Why can't Prax's suit hold … Continue reading "Expanse Plot Holes"Read More »
- One album a year (a couple of these are more hard rock, but I steered it away from hair metal mostly): Ace of Spades, by Motörhead: 1980 Diary of a Madman, by Ozzy Osbourne: 1981 Number of the Beast, by Iron Maiden: 1982 Show No Mercy, by Slayer: 1983 Defenders of the Faith, by Judas … Continue reading "Wednesday '80s Metal Music"Read More »
- Journey on iOS by thatgamecompany Lovely game, and if you get a good companion one of the most friendly gaming experiences you'll ever have. This was pretty much the reason to get a PS3, now a lot more accessible. Hm. When it was released in 2012, the fact that it's cooperative multiplayer was actually a … Continue reading "Journey"Read More »
