There’s quite a bit in here this time around; see last post for the reasons and a comparison; not nearly so far behind as before. All things considered, this is a good thing. Jumping in here thought gives us plenty to look at. From visualising data to more on driveless cars, plenty of good music to plenty of strange but oddly appealing music to free as in beer music, celebrity meatloaf [a la the 'Antiviral' movie] to celebrity awards, quite a bit on the security of your data and what you do with it, tons on the StarCraft competitive gaming leagues, more awesome photos from space to a trailer for the movie everyone is waiting for, law enforcement getting in on the tech advances, some creepypasta to some creepy fish, board games and old games, the privacy of the internet and anatomy all collected, bitcoins for dummies to home gestures, sounds from the history of technology to hacking current technology. First up though, we ask, and answer the age old question:
Sometimes the days fly by, other times they seem to drag on an on. Can’t be too sure which it has been lately around here; time is fluid and not prone to stability.
Today’s links move between technology and everything else and back again quite a lot. Between children’s television and fighting games, you’ll find wireless technology, satellite photography, new MOBA games, wireless warriors, nail polish, GPS 25th anniversary, sand art, horoscopes and more horoscopes, cosplay, gamer racing drivers, avoiding censorship, emotion recognition, thoughts on the future from the past, musical FPS, nuclear fusion, crazy objects in the third dimension, and bouts of humour scattered in large clumps. So jump in and enjoy it all:
So, this post is late. -Ish. Or something. To make up for this, it is huge. About fifty percent more than a regular post. There’s all sorts in here this time as well; 3d printing, lossiness, suns, pretty girls, ants, psychos, television, orcs, wizards, copycats, brains, phones, spiders, teeth, santas, predictions, buttons, dinosaurs, makeovers, holes, fairytales, doctors, food, chalk, gears, demons, diacritics, books, superheroes, consoles, airplanes, surfboards and ponies.
Not too much happening of note to put in here. So there’s lots of art and music for a change, and some tech thrown in for good measure. From personal environment monitors to a new family console, wallpapers to walkways, whales to ants, interstellar space to food delivery, photoshops to Shakespeare, parodies to film scores, photoshops to fingerprints, Kim Dotcom to Jason Vorhees, and finishing up with a bit of hipster killing. But first, some really really abbreviated core rules for GURPS:
