If someone already has gotten Humble Indie Bundle V, there's another one available for the next 20 hours here: Graduation Bundle

Games are not as good, but 1000 Amps alone is worth the price of admission.

Get that bundle, and pay $7... if only for the Cheap Dinosaurs album. Seriously, that is some fantastic stuff right there I bought the album on day one release and it's still one of my favourites ever. EVER.

or bachelor's degree...sort of confusing and nutty process, but carrying on with it.

Adult teaching + a proposal to the limitations viewed during the course of its practice.

Someone is selling DeLorean (BttF style, of course) LEGO sets on eBay! I've looked at various LEGO Back to the Future things before, but I hadn't seen anything that was actually purchasable. Want a look? Check this out. I've linked their shop, rather than the page with the DeLorean on it, since they have a few to choose from (though, there's only really two different models, they have multiple entries for it). Unfortunately, to get both models, I'd need to shell out $200. Which, if I had $200 right now, I'd probably do.... I owe about $400+ to various people, and I still have to worry about rent, and utilities. So, I won't be making a purchase any time soon. :(

That said, you should also check out Cuusoo. On this site, people submit ideas for LEGO sets, and if they get enough votes (from your average internet goer), LEGO reviews the models, and decides whether to produce it or not. LEGO Back to the Future (the one I linked) has received enough votes, and enters the reviewing process THIS MONTH!!! :D !!! Sadly, for me, there's a very realistic chance that by the time I have enough money to buy the eBay sets, LEGO will be producing their own models (though, on a positive side, they'll be a lot cheaper than the eBay ones. I did the math, and the eBay sets are 20-22 cent per piece, on average. Official LEGO sets are usually 10-16 cents per piece).

So, why not wait until LEGO releases their official model? Well, they may not be able to get the licensing for it, in which case they obviously wouldn't be able to move forward with it. Not only that, but I'm extremely impatient. And besides, one can never have too many LEGO DeLoreans (or DeLoreans of any kind (I have at least 5, in varying quality and sizes. None of them are LEGOs though, or even the actual car...), in my opinion, but LEGO ones *ESPECIALLY*).

Obviously, I'm fairly excited right now. I probably just really need to go to bed. I have to get up for work in about 4 hours.... Ah crud.... I wasn't watching the time. Mouser X over and out.

Went to a demoparty, entered a 40kb demo, won.

Congrats mudlord!

There's a postmortem up on Gamasutra for SpaceChem, my favorite game of 2011.

thanks hcs, I need to do a postmortem also, to lay down what needs to improve for the next intro, or possibly demo.

I can label a few things that seemed to work though. Namely the tech, though a port to D3D10 would be nice.

@HCS: Thanks for the SpaceChem reminder, just bought it off GOG.
Seems just right up my alley, we'll see if it doesn't make my head explode though. :)

Just read a fascinating two part (part 1 part 2) article about color perception and its relation to language.

I find this interesting particularly in light of the concept of qualia in philosophy, roughly subjective experience. An often-used example is colors, how do I know that there is any similarity between my perception of red and yours, even when we're looking at the same object. These studies suggest that just having a common word is surprisingly important to perception, so what we consider "raw experience" may be more culturally dependent than one would imagine thinking that color perception is idiosyncratic.

Or maybe I'm reading too much into it.

I ran across this in the discussion on a recent blog post by Raph Koster, in which he proves again that he has heard all the arguments about games, game mechanics, and art. It's very informative to see how he puts things in context.

It's nice when I get lucky with photo composition:

2.9 MB JPEG

I'm on a trip cross country on my move out east, took that around sunset today at a truck stop in Mill City, Nevada.
