Having a week off work, I decided to get ahead with my hobbying. I have a lot of assembled and primed stuff that's been waiting too long for me to pick up a brush. This morning, I managed to get a good head start on my first terrain piece.
What company produces a limited edition product without telling its customers about it? What companies creates miniatures and then puts the supporting rules in a book with a limited print run, meaning once the book is sold out, nobody will buy more miniatures? Yeah, you guessed it: Games Workshop.
Twenty-five years ago today, Nintendo released the Game Boy in Japan. Twenty-five years ago I was five years old. I have loved the two Game Boys I've owned very much, and I still do so today. In fact, they still work and I got to write about that recently.
I have just released Linux Outlaws 342. This time around, it's mostly about Heartbleed, which dominated the news in the week running up to the recording. But we also create a fictional porn detective on the episode — don't ask, I have no idea how these things happen.
When I first heard of the Sentinels of Terra codex supplement, I was quite vocal about the fact that I thought having a book for a single company of a Space Marine chapter was a stupid idea. Having read the book cover to cover, I'm not so sure anymore.
Not even three months after we embarked on this project, c't uplink graduated from the beta phase with episode 1.0 — it's now officially a thing and gets announced on heise online. Pretty scary but also very cool. In the latest episode, we talk 4K displays and more.
After twelve years of being together, of moving to Australia, of living hundreds of kilometres apart for a year, of being through thick and thin together, after twelve years of love and sometimes of pain, Katy and I decided to marry last month. We did so without telling anybody.
After months and months of work, I've finally completed my Land Raider Crusader. The very last steps like the detail work and weathering always take the longest amount of time, compared to the base colours. I'm pretty happy with the result, although there's definitely room for improvement.
Did the NSA know about Heartbleed? That's the question that seems to be on everyone's mind at the moment. At least it's on the mind of people who don't just assume the NSA knows everything. Well, according to Bloomberg, the NSA knew. But are they right?
The latest episode of c't uplink was released over the weekend. After missing a few episodes, it was time for me to come on and talk about Heartbleed (what else). But since I always bring the show down with gloomy topics, I also brought something fun for a change.
