When I saw "The Great Hash Bakeoff", something else came to mind.

It's already going through an encrypted VPN - according to the homepage, Tails uses the Tor network for all traffic. All your ISP could determine is that you're using Tor.

Yay! Congratulations on the successful recovery, although:
There isn't as good an explanation for why we weren't running on a more fail-safe setup, but the good news is that this has been addressed, as the RAID 1 array we are now using should be inherently more capable of surviving problems.
So you're saying you were actually running in a non-RAID setup this whole time? That's scary! Disks are cheap, and most BIOSes nowadays can do software RAID even if you don't have a real RAID card.

I hate to mention it, but another option might be to move the system into "The Clooouuud"; an AWS server would ensure you are always running a resilient system with backups, and would protect the site from going down in case you lose power or your Internet connection.

Steam definitely could do with package dependencies. Have your game depend on whatever runtimes it uses, so you only download them once.

What I do have nostalgia about is the BNC network cables with these very solid metal rotation locks, and T pieces to link 3 PC's together, and those awesome end-caps, back then networking had real beefy feeling to it, not the wimpy feeling you get from CAT5e or CAT6 cables nowadays. My first LAN was with that (on a 468 DX2 66) we played the original descent. It was mindblowing. Later on HL DM. Crossfire (map with the bunker and the "button" ) and much later on BF1942 Coop vs AI

Oh God, no. You haven't suffered until you've had to trace the fault in a 20-computer BNC loop, having to tell each person in every office why the network is down and why you need to get at the jack behind their desk. I think a we eventually ended up getting a cable tester that would tell us how many feet away the signal stopped, but I was ecstatic when we moved to 10BaseT Ethernet.

Number one on both critic lists: BInfinite! Plus GTA:V, AC:IV:BF, and Tomb Raider.

I think I agree with what one RPS commenter said: BInfinite would have been much better received within the gaming community if it didn't have the Bioshock label attached to it. Expectations were too high.

Papers, Please! Woot!!!!! Easily my favorite indie game this year.

2013 seems to have been "Year of the Amazing Indie Games". Half of Gamsutra's and Rock Paper Shotgun's Top lists were indies, and they aren't on there just to fill the list out.

There seems to be a lot of controversy about this jailbreak. The Chinese version apparently installs a pirate app store, and the author of Cydia wasn't notified of the JB, either.

This will have to be a really good game to beat my favorite top-down racing game: "Auto Racing" for the Intellivision :)

Didn't they just end their Autumn sale TWO WEEKS ago? They need to plan these things a bit better.

Unfortunately, the Wesley Snipes "Blade" movies came to mind for me.

But it's the second one that's the real doozy. USB 3.0!

There isn't a single external device out there that maxes a USB 2.0 bus. None. So all USB 3.0 is is a buzzword.

The last reason, security, is really the only reason people SHOULD upgrade. Although it is quite amusing that after 11 years of patching, Windows XP is still leaky as a sieve where security is concerned. God, how terrible was it when it first came out?

Lots of USB 3.0 devices easily overwhelm a USB 2.0 bus. In this USB 3.0 flash drive shootout, 27 of the 31 drives tested would max out a USB 2.0 bus. Any SATA-USB3 disk adapter will, too. This isn't a reason to upgrade your XP machine, though. My two XP boxes both have USB 3.0 cards and came with drivers supporting them (remember, USB 3.0 came out 5 years ago).

He forgot the most important reason for Blue's readers, though: Not many AAA games support XP anymore :)

I'm surprisingly insulted from tv pop culture.

You probably meant "insulated from", but your way works too :)

Still use it daily too. The only thing I wish Winamp would have done differently is their media library's database format. I've had it go corrupt on me 3-4 times and had to restore from backups. They should have used sqlite, which would also have allowed easy access to it from outside Winamp itself.

Roman numerals, how do they work!?
They've gone the way of cursive and how to write with a quill pen. An interesting relic of the past, but probably not worth actually teaching kids.

The Stanley Parable sounds very interesting. RPS almost reviewed it (or did he review a dozen times? hard to tell): http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2013/10/17/wot-i-think-the-stanley-parable/
