    The toons themselves are moving to YouTube for archival purposes, but since it's converting to video instead of Flash animation, easter eggs are gone. At least you still get TROGDOR!

    Sweet, thanks for the insight! I haven't consulted the comparability matrix yet because any development I do will be personal projects, so I get to pick my platform. I will definitely check Mono...

    Yeah, shared Emacs config is my plan for now as well. TUI Emacs could be fun!

    Oh wow, that's awesome! I'll check it out - I've seen a lot of chatter about GNOME vs KDE, and I'm interested in checking both out. This will save me lots of time for setting up new live USBs!

    I actually built a live USB last night and gave it a test drive. It's pretty sweet!

    The only hang-up I've got is that I am a .NET developer, and I'm a little worried I will never be able to fully transition. Granted, the stack I'm accustomed to is a little older, so making the jump is easier if I greenfield projects, what with .NET Core.

    On the other hand, I am an avid Emacs org-mode user, and I want to see what the native Emacs experience is like.

    I think I'll dual-boot for now and give it a shot!

    Hi from the Windows world! I've been toying with the idea of switching because, what else is there to do now?

    • Super Meat Boy - A brutal platformer demands buttery controls, and this one nails it on the movement. At some points in the game, there are some less-precise elements (the fans and those repulser-things come to mind), but the overall experience is sublime.
    • Hollow Knight - Another Metroidvania, polished to perfection. I cannot sing the praises of the controls in this game enough.

    I will also second the new 3D Mario games, especially Odyssey. This game is the spiritual successor to Super Mario 64 that I have been waiting for!

    I'm tasked with overhauling a portion of our import feeds system at work (think foreach (row in fileRows)...), which has led to a 2 month-long foray into SSIS.

    Our team is focused primarily in C#/JS, so this was new for all of us. This new approach is screaming fast and scary powerful!

    Really? I am STOKED for SNES Online.

    The Smash DLC had me a bit confused - I know nothing about Fatal Fury, but hey, it's not another swordie! And Banjo-Kazooie has dropped!

    Seems like a bunch of ports and re-releases.

    Sure, lots of ports, but I'd rather have the problem of too much to play instead of not enough (a la Wii U).

    I'm almost done with the first listen. I'm enjoying what I'm hearing, but the overall feeling is "I just want to listen to more Tool," which is definitely not a bad thing.

    Overall, I'm a latecomer. I didn't start listening until well after 10,000 Days came out, so I need to listen a few more times to get what's going on in Fear Inoculum.

    Hey all, I listen to a bunch of podcasts during my commute to/from work, and I was wondering if anyone had some recommendations for good anime podcasts?

    I've already made it through All Systems Goku, which followed two of the Giant Bomb guys on their first viewing of Dragon Ball Z Kai. It was a lot of fun! There were a lot of wrestling references, all of which I didn't get, but they had a fun time.

    It has to be at least a little, right? On the other tentacle, Box Office Mojo has it at the bottom of the pack in terms of gross.
