    In other paranoia news, finished Orphan Black S1. Amusing, and they're finally acting smarter, but [SPOILER] is obviously not legally binding.

      Go to update iCab, App Store says "not available". Since this version's doing more ad blocking of App Store popups, I figure it's Apple's draconian walled prison police state… Apparently not. [www.icab-mobile.de] Dev pulled it over a bug.

        @griotspeak I think any language changes would shown up in LLVM commits first.

            @kevinhoctor I don't taste enough difference between Laphroaig Quarter Cask or Lagavulin 14 and anything more expensive, to be worth buying one bottle instead of 2-4 bottles.

              So much ambivalence. BASIC at 50 [www.dartmouth.edu]. Timesharing's awesome. BASIC, with no data structures or organization beyond line numbers, is poison to the mind. (Yes, I started with BASIC, but then I grew up.)

                Crash is hard. Maybe I'm old, maybe playing with a d-pad sucks (doesn't support analog stick, my old expensive controller had a digital/analog switch, but Sony's doesn't). But one touch death is not what I'm used to anymore.

                    Down side: Clicking on 25 download links then Download in Background for each, because PSN store has no "download & install all" button.

                        @jws @jeffmueller Nope, when on Pacific time, do as we do. Smoke some dope, eat the avocado burger, drink microbrew.

                              @dssstrkl Does Jesus have a phylactery? Voldemort is a lich, for sure. The girls in [HOLY SHIT SPOILER REDACTED], sure. Jesus just comes out and shows off his unhealing zombie hands, before exploding into a gas ("spirit") that gives people aphasia.

                                @redqueencoder Sort of. Moore didn't change much of the backstory or personality of any of them, just their reactions to the Vietnam War and an endless Nixon presidency. Watchmen is Charlton fanfic.

                                  @invalidname @redqueencoder @wookiee You, uh, maybe didn't realize Watchmen is just recycled from the Charlton Comics characters. Moore has never invented a character in his life.

                                    @redqueencoder @matigo @annatarkov Devs are like Klingons. You have to kill the strongest to assume authority.

                                      @redqueencoder @invalidname @wookiee There's rare exceptions where video can say something new, like Evangelion, but mostly Mazinger, Robot Jox, and Pacific Rim are just punching robots.

                                        @redqueencoder @invalidname @wookiee Nothing new. All of the anime based on Shirow's work are vapid compared to the manga. Black Magic, Appleseed, Dominion, Ghost in the Shell. Blade Runner's just nice set dressing, it lost all the meaning of Dick's book.
