And a Windows implementation free enough of bugs to make it usable will probably arrive 3 years later.

No Mac version? Bummer, that means I'll have to play it at work.

Wow, 20 years since DOOM. How the world has changed since then. And yes I wasted way too much time playing that game. I still remember blasting through the shareware version and eagerly awaiting the install-o-meter as I loaded the full version from the 4 floppy disks. Creating and downloading pwads was as much, if not more fun than playing the original game itself. And the graphics, wow in all of their 320x200 pixel glory (or would that be gory ). DOOM pretty much started me as a PC gamer, and also the creative aspect of playing with WorldCraft to create my own pwads... ah the good old days. Now where did I save that custom config.sys and autoexec.bat?

On the very same day, the Hubble Space Telescope became viable after a restoration conducted by spacewalking astronauts on STS-61.

Many good memories of playing id games so many years ago. I remember coming to Blue's News when it was essentially a Quake-only news site.

Now that Todd is out of the company is there anyone original left? Their website doesn't seem to contain a lot of info, and in fact doesn't even mention Rage (which I never played).

Oh yeah, and for those who remembered me as long-haired Jim back in the day, I actually cut it all off about a month ago--a first in over 2 decades.

Twitter shut down their old API last Monday. They're forcing everyone to update to API v1.1, which is what I spent a good amount of time 2 weeks ago working on to update our projects.

Nice to recognize the Apollo 17 landing, although it's a good thing the command module didn't make the actual landing or else they'd still be there (the CM stays in orbit while the LM separates and lands). This reminds me of an interview with Jim Lovell during the 40th anniversary of Apollo 8. Someone asked him if his crew had considered executing an unplanned landing. I think his response was simply "no, because we didn't have a LM."

And speaking of lunar landings, we will be making 2 of them next week, as Ebb and Flow (the twin GRAIL probes) reach the end of their mission and will be deliberately crashed into the lunar surface.

Good to know that a power outage is the only issue you've had in the storm, Blue. You deserve the day off.

So if you have clear skies tonight (not here) the Perseid meteor shower peaks. This is the best one of the year where you don't have to deal with -10 degree temperatures.

Which can take weeks to complete... What the hell... Who is taking weeks to copy files or image hard drives then wipe them???

Must be a gov. organization

It's not any ordinary government, it's Rhode Island! Actually, I expect nothing to be gained from retrieving the assets. In fact, I don't expect the assets to be retrieved at all. The computers will probably end up in storage somewhere after they hire an intern to sift through the data, file a meaningless and inaccurate report on what is there, and that will be the last we hear about it.

That is one of the most poorly written articles I've seen in quite a while. Spelling and grammatical errors galore, and WPRI (not WRPI) is a television station, not a publication.

Here's the source article.

FPV quadricopters are becoming quite popular in the hobbyist market. These are essentially "personal drones." I'd love to get one, not that I want to use it to spy on someone, but they give a unique perspective to familiar surroundings and would be fun to take on trips to exotic locations. (Look at Team Blacksheep on Yourube or do a Youtube search for "TBS Discovery".)

Sites like Digg never did anything for me. It was one of the first content aggregator sites that really add nothing to my web experience other than adding another click to get what I want to read. Just give me the source link and skip the middle man. Same goes for Reddit, Boing Boing, Videosift, etc.

20,000 years is not when the dinosaurs were here, wtf.

Bad use of dino. Bad. Unless...ignoring science...

Heh, that's the first thing I noticed too. Reminds me of a recent trip I took to La Brea, where their oldest fossil was around 32,000 old ago and they have a sign specifically saying that "no, we do not have dinosaurs"

Maybe the people that created the infographic were part of the "young earth" movement or whatever it is called.
