OpenTTD

If you were a fan of Chris Sawyer's Transport Tycoon Deluxe (and you should be), then OpenTTD is probably worth a try.

In a similar vein to my drunk kitchen, the katering show is worth watching. Only 6 short episodes to catch up on.

Lucky peach's state of ramen edition is pretty great. It's been sitting in my tabs for 6 months now, so putting it here makes more sense.

I've been meaning to try my hand at making marinated soft-boiled eggs for a while too.

After getting a one kilo cube of tungsten, I need to go deeper. Plutonium is dangerous and Platinum is crazy expensive, but what about Osmium?

Pixel tower, redux

If you were a fun of MrWong's Soup'Partments in the 2000's, then you'll feel some nostalgia for Chicken Street.

As a color blind human, this New Republic article on color perception is pretty interesting. The book is probably worth a read.

This is one of the best pieces of technical writing I've seen - an implementation of (some of) Git in JavaScript, with a very well written inline description of what's going on.

On a slightly nerdier bent, this explanation of the packfile format is pretty great too.

This article about the inclusion of AIM support in MSN messenger and the fight to obscure the protocol is pretty interested - also covers some Microsoft history and why some things are the way they are.

Closing Some Tabs

I'm closing out some 2014 tabs, so have a few useful links.

Want to make a game, but don't know how to get started? Sortingh.at is a great step-by-step resource.

Using Google Apps-for-business and group mail is bouncing? Follow these instructions to switch to "proper" groups.

Think you can recognize your developers from their commit messages? git-game turns it into a neat game where you try to figure out whose entire message was just "fuck" the most often.

Want a machine that make tortillas at the press of a button? I DO. flatev is the answer.

Chip Rainbows

Sure, In Rainbows is great. But it would be much better as 8-bit chiptunes, right?

Right!
