  • Commented on Empire Games
    (Spoiler alert!) I don't think that was actually Bruce Schneier. But seeing his name attached to the afterword was only one of several great little details, like Adam telling the Burgesons to bring democracy to the USA, or the title...
  • Commented on Empire Games sneak peek
    Thanks for the link to the longer excerpt. After reading the first link Charlie posted, I wanted more. And this gave me a little more. The excerpt worked. Not only did I pre-order Empire Games, but I bought the first...
  • Commented on Brief hiatus
    Deschutes is a good choice. Their Black Butte Porter and Obsidian Stout are among my go-to brews. If you go for kitchen-sink-style stouts, The Abyss is one of the things that started that trend. It might exacerbate the jet lag...

  • Commented on A product review, and some musing
    On the societal scourge of Macaholicism: as a Unix graybeard I used to feel pity mixed (I hate to admit) with a little bit of contempt for people who let themselves get hooked. Then I changed jobs and was issued...
  • Commented on A product review, and some musing
    It's good to see you go back to your geek roots. Whenever someone says that using Perl ruins the brain, I bring you up as a counter-example. If only I could come up with a second one... Combing power and...
