Windows 10 Review for Dummies

Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Tim Cain Discussing the First Fallout
Posted on Monday, October 26 2015 @ 11:36:43 PST

At GDC 2012 Tim Cain, who played what is inarguably the single most important role in seeing Fallout into existence, gave a lengthy talk about the game's inception and development, followed by a Q&A session.  Watch it here.

What strikes me, and which I learned for the first time watching this, is just how bootstrapped the entire game actually was.  The SPECIAL system was known for it but basically everything in the game was thrown together with very little actual prior planning.  Its creators struggled to keep the game in development more than once until they won Brian Fargo over to their vision.  In fact, as Cain mentions, Fargo indicated the need for something like the perk system (which Chris Taylor and Tim Cain threw together and implemented in two days - which explains why it was so hilariously broken) and even came up with the title for the game.

A fascinating watch and worth your time if you want more insight into Fallout's long history.

John 'Total Biscuit' Bain Suffers Relapse
Posted on Thursday, October 15 2015 @ 11:05:42 PST

I don't have to introduce Total Biscuit.  You know who he is.  I respect his work but admit I know it half as well as I should like.

In a Twitlonger post today he revealed that his cancer has relapsed and he's been given a life expectancy of 2-3 years.  He remains confident and fully intends to land in the outlier camp and to fight it to the bitter end.  I wish him the best of luck.

There's never enough time.  God dammit.
