According to the website and the Steam page, the name of the game is actually "Bravada" - Interbellum is the developer.

After playing a long QWCTF session, I used to hear the grenade ricochet sounds for a long time, especially if a small map with choke points (The Kiln, or McKinley Base, for example) was in the rotation.

I read this as "The Taltos Principle", and got excited, thinking someone had translated Steven Brust's universe into a game.

So much sad now...
Could have been something out of the Anne Rice books, too. Those Taltos were weirder than her vampires...

Yahoo let their cert expire a couple days ago on one of their mail servers; it looks like the one in use now is an extremely short-lived one:

Issued: 2014-05-20 00:00:00 AM GMT
Expires: 2014-06-27 23:59:59 PM GMT

If you're going to run on certs that expire that quickly, you had better have a robust rollout system to ensure you're always up-to-date...

Katie Bueller: I can't believe it.

Ed Rooney: I've got it right here in front of me. He has missed nine days...

Ferris Bueller: I asked for a car, I got a computer. How's that for being born under a bad sign?

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.
