Neck snaps in Occulus Rift, Coding Fonts, Proportion and the Amiga

I’ve been playing for the Oculus Rift for some time – it’s obvious that the first killer (low hanging fruit) app will be some kind of dogfighting game. Eve Online has been experimenting with a cut down version of it’s multiplayer engine – limited in time and number of players.¬†Richard Cobbett posits an interesting future where necks could be snapped by wily players.

It looks like we are going to be stuck with text editing for making code for a while – which are the best fonts for programming?

My first home computer was an Amiga. I asked for one for years from my parents before they finally relented – first a 500+ and then a 1200 with 120 Mb(!) of hard drive space. Mind blowing. Ars have done a brilliant history of the Amiga, with a particularly great post on the demo scene.

Finally, a bit of perspective on this whole day by day thing. The proportion of a day to some other significant events or periods in the history of the universe.
