Bus driver Alexei “the punisher” Volkov educates Russian drivers who cut him off by ramming them from behind. All caught on his dashcam and uploaded to Youtube for the edification of the wider public. I think this is called distance learning at the school of hard knocks.
There is a new Humble Bundle (#5) of games out now. It includes up to 8 games, which are cross platform for Linux, Android, Mac and Windows. This is a fantastic way of distributing games, and allows indie developers to get their product out into the marketplace. It is also a clear indication to developers that Linux is a viable market for game development – if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you will see that there are more Linux downloads than Mac, and that Linux downloaders pay the most for the games. Did I mention that you have to pay for the games? but you get to choose how much you pay. Go forth and game!
