Been a while since I took an e-test, but this one looked interesting (h/t Plutonick) I’m a bit surprised myself. I was always good in vocabulary and I knew I was good in English, but this was unexpected. Maybe I just got the easy questions? .. read more..
Out of ammo
Wednesday, June 22, 2016
As you may have heard by now, Doomtown:Reloaded is being discontinued. As part of the design team for the past 3 years, it’s been a rough but wonderful ride and I’m really proud of what we’ve achieved in terms of balance and gameplay. Unfortunately the writing was on the wall at... .. read more..
The future or Neoliberalism

Living in the office. This is the “capitalist miracle” of South Korea. Even USSR sounds better than this shit. .. read more..
Outrage Culture or Male Indignation
Tuesday, February 2, 2016
The latest Wondermark comic once again hits the spot perfectly, but I feel it also makes a secondary point more obvious to me. I’ve always wondered why so many dudebros online just get so unreasonably upset about someone calling them out on something, even the smallest issue in the most pol... .. read more..
Windows finally given for free?

What’s this then? My 9 years-old prediction is finally coming to be? Huzzah! To be fair, this isn’t exactly direct free giveaway, but it’s pretty much the next best thing. Microsoft is finally starting to feel the heat about their market share coming from mobile devices and the ... .. read more..

I’ve been following the latest happenings between Greece and EU with some amount of fascination. While I’m not a believer in parliamentarism, I can’t help but be glad the current government is sticking to their guns and promises to their voters and is willing to go head to head ... .. read more..

And just what the fuck is a W-8BEN?
Monday, January 5, 2015
Oh damnitn bureaucracy has found me! It seems my Patreon account is generating such significant amounts of money, that I need to wade through what is called a “W-8BEN” which includes requirements such as a US Tax ID number (but I’m a EU citizen!), my normal Tax ID number (ugh) a... .. read more..
On the #GamerGate hypocrisy extraordinaire
Wednesday, November 19, 2014
Someone on reddit asked reformed gamergators to say what changed their mind. I found the following quote exemplary! It was a mixture of things really, but I think the starting point was Milo’s “You take your tits out for a living tweets” to Liana K. Basically what gradually conv... .. read more..
Quote of the day: “Are we the baddies?”
Thursday, October 23, 2014
As the #GamerGate nonsense plods on with more and more geek idols speaking out against it, some of the people still delusively supporting it are starting to have increasing cognitive dissonance1: I’ve been recommending them to my friends for years. I really expected more from them, but it... .. read more..
