This will be my second year going. Now that I actually live nearby I've been fantasizing about buying a machine, but I don't know anyone in the area and don't have access to a vehicle, so we'll see how that plays out.

@gakon:

Words such as fuck and shit are the NSFW bits. The majority of the innuendo on display here is just fine and, in fact, to be encouraged.

I added the filtering feature and it's on the live site now. I ended up filtering innuendo into the explicit section so as many people can use it as possible. There are still more plain quotes than explicit ones so you you don't need to worry about too much repetition. Also I've found myself listening to old podcasts a lot recently so I'm trying to add as many new quotes as I can.

@gakon: If you could make a work safe (or just a little bit safer) version, we will use this in our company.

Oh, wait, I didn't see the Git stuff. Maybe I could do this myself.

I'll add that in today, I have a day off anyway. The quotes are actually already loosely grouped into explicit and non-explicit, I just never implemented that option. It's also a matter of what qualifies as explicit. Is innuendo as bad as straight cursing?

Friends,

Last year I created Taswell Ipsum to honor Ryan Davis following his untimely passing. You can use it for fun and profit in your wireframes, prototypes, wireframes, whatever. Your clients won’t know what to think when you deliver designs rife with cursing and video game references.

I had only promoted it on Twitter and forgot to show on the forums, so here it is now for your pleasure. Here’s the raw list of quotes. If you have a great one to submit, PM me, come at me on Twitter, or if you want to be extra cool, submit a pull request to the GitHub repo.

Enjoy!

I'd like to see one (one is probably all we need) Mario platformer take the Mario Tennis approach to character choice and just have like, twenty playable characters. Or the Super Meat Boy approach I suppose. I know I want to see Fire Waluigi.

FYI you can invert the colours in settings

Where? I looked around and couldn't find the option.

Settings > General > Accessibility > Invert Colors. This actually inverts everything on the screen, not just the interface.

I've been using iOS 7 for a few months and I like it quite a bit. The big secret about this update, though, is that most everything is the same. Most all of the interaction patterns and UI controls are the same, so you don't have to relearn anything really. If there was no visual overhaul, you could probably count on one hand the number of major new features. It's simultaneously a big deal but also really not that big of a deal. Nothing will change about how you use your phone, unless your apps stop working I suppose. [edit] Removing the social buttons from Notification Center and the ability to search Google from Spotlight are two baffling omissions, I'll give you that.

Also, you get used to the icons. Yeah, the circles are too big or whatever, but you can still tell the icons apart. Just download Mailbox and use that instead of Mail, and you can ditch that weird-looking gradient.

My hard drive is named "Macintosh HD", because, y'know. Pretty much all of my external devices/drives have Starfleet designations for names. My thumb drive is NX-74205.

Oh look, I just realized I switched phones and left the authenticator on my old phone, and that old phone has since been the recipient of a hard reset so who knows where that leaves me.

Do you have the SMS security? If you do, you're fine and you can just disable the authenticator. If not, well, I don't know how to put this positively... have fun dealing with support I guess (I've heard it is a pain to remove an authenticator without SMS)?

It's an app authenticator, for Windows Phone 7 specifically. So, yeah... we'll see. Mists isn't out for another month anyway.

[edit] Also I wonder how any of these authenticators work if you delete them off your phone and then redownload them. On iOS and WP7, when you delete an app all the data goes with it, which I assume would include whatever unique identifier is attached to the authenticator. Unless they know how to bind it to the Apple ID of the person who downloaded the app, I dunno.

I had a similar problem. Just call their tech support and explain to them the situation. It seems common enough that they're used to it. As an added bonus, the Blizzard tech support is incredibly kind and helpful.

I've had to appeal a few bans (following account compromises) with the phone tech support and they were always super friendly about it. Obviously that probably doesn't happen to everyone but my experience has been nothing but positive.
