  1. Really enjoyed this. The first three maps are skippable. Too slow and the shotgun overstays its welcome. E1M4 really picks up. From there, these become some of most enjoyable maps I've ever played. Stays strong right until the end of the episode. Positives: You nail that wandering nonlinear E1 feel perfectly. At times it felt like the best parts of vanilla 1994 all over again. It's wonderful. There are a lot of good classic episode PWADs but it's really rare to get that aspect of classic mapping done well. Great achievement. Some extremely satisfying barrel kills too, just often enough that it feels like a treat every time. Criticism: Secrets are barely hinted at or not at all, I needed automap cheat for most. A few dud encounters, like traps with no escape because you get boxed in with no warning, or monsters bottlenecked in doorways providing no challenge. Way too much health and ammo but when I'm having this much fun I don't really care. Overall definitely worth the time from M4 onwards. I will keep this to play again in future.

    E1M1 Jazz Edition

    I feel so dirty listening to this. Actual lulz were had. Well done.

    Tib nagged me to make a map and 16.5 minutes later this emerged. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/43343169/doom/fuckofftib.wad It doesn't meet your criteria of 16 starts, so feel free to reject it. The title is: I gave my love a chicken, it had no bones

    Doom Radio - Where's All the Data Episode 6

    Would it be possible to make an RSS/XML feed for these episodes, so I can just load it into some podcasting software and download to my phone directly? If you search for "podcast rss" the required format is well documented.

    Try Extreme Weapon Pack for Doom II

    This is the best thing ever made for ZDoom. Ever.

    Mall shooting posted on /b/ before it happened.

    This has been done before. Wasn't it the dude who murdered some pornstar gave her location on /b/ the day before it was discovered by the cops or something?

    Your thoughts on Far Cry 3?

    Haven't played it. It looks great, like Fallout 3. I'm looking forward to playing it in a few years when it's on sale for 5 bucks.
  8. Because it hurts your eyes to look at bright wallpaper when you sit in the dark to play games.
  9. Ah, it's infrared, that might explain it. I read in a magazine that the whole western/middle of Australia has been mostly free of topsoil and subsoil for several million years, it's just the bare regolith and bedrock of the crust poking up. Is it possible this rock is holding the heat of the daytime sun, which is why it appears on an infrared photo? It also could be all the alien spacecraft they keep out at Pine Gap.

    Best Way to Clone HDD to SSD?

    Completely forget just hard drives, all electronics have a failure rate. TVs, dishwashers, car alarms, defibrillators, space shuttles. Haven't we been doing electronics long enough to get it right? Evidently not.

    Best Way to Clone HDD to SSD?

    printz, are you making the argument that we've had ~60 years since the transistor went into most retail electronics, and we should be able to get reliability much better than 97% ±2% by now? If so, I'd never considered that point before, but I agree.

    That makes no sense.

    Best Way to Clone HDD to SSD?

    Does it matter? Existing electronic component failure rates tend to indicate the drive controller will die before either the platter or flash, in most cases.

    But proving Maes wrong is so easy and so much fun. Don't be such a wet blanket :P
