I think Minecraft is the greatest thing to happen to kids. I'll tell you why: because a generation or two before them grew up in abject complacency, eschewing the fucking basics of computer science for click-once-and-have-fun schemes. That's why you have grown men who consider installing a mod to be overwhelmingly… » 3/11/15 3:33pm 3/11/15 3:33pm

I have a lot of issues with gaming because of my parents not respecting games. I have a tendency to stay up late or get up super early to cram in some uninterrupted gaming because of that, which isn't healthy. I will be making an extra effort to understand my son's hobbies and to not treat them like they don't matter… » 2/10/15 5:07pm 2/10/15 5:07pm

I work really hard and do as much as I can to prevent mistakes or bad implementations of code. After five years, the studio I was working at closed and when I interviewed at another one, they asked me about a time when a massive problem happened and how I responded. I was stumped, because thanks to a good team,… » 1/20/15 9:46am 1/20/15 9:46am

"These people" being the cyber army of North Korea? The main reason they don't turn their guns on "terrorist" websites is because they have no reason to. No terrorist is getting into North Korea. Islam will never gain a foothold as long as DPRK is around, so any jihadist orgs are bound to be more of a problem for the… » 1/12/15 12:09pm 1/12/15 12:09pm
