Comment Awesome! (Score 1) 404

Loving it, granted it's only been 2 years but I'm doing some support for our corporate clients while working on security improvements for our network and servers. A lot of working on stuff alone, researching and learning. It's what interests me and therefore it's awesome.

How PC Game Modders Are Evolving 98

It highlights a number of creative modders, such as Scott Reismanis, founder and editor of Mod DB, and his community-driven alternative to Valve's Steam — Desura — which is 'a distribution system, and, like Steam, will sell games and champion indie titles. But the way it handles mods makes it even more exciting.'"

It's one of the fastest-growing health issues that doctors now face: "Google-itis."

Comment Re-bought and it's worth it (Score 1) 238

I had previously bought Aquaria directly from bit-blot and it's one of the best games I've played in many years. Now I chipped in again despite having played it already just to support them.

That makes this pack a truly awesome deal and seemingly; much overlooked.
