Submission + - The space sim isn't dead after all! (robertsspaceindustries.com)

cwebster writes: Chris Roberts' (creator of the wing commander series) new foray into PC games is officially a "go". The new game, Star Citizen, is slated to be what anyone who has played wing commander or privateer dreams it could be. Best of all, Chris cut out the publishers (EA owns the rights to WC) and is self funding this project. There are 20 days left in the funding campaign to meet the ambitious stretch goals. Contribute at kickstarter or the main site for the game.

Submission + - Linux power regression on the way? (google.com)

cwebster writes: Linus shared the release of 3.1-rc4 on google+, "Most noticeable thing for most users is likely the lack of warnings about duplicate sysfs files for backlight control on intel laptops. And if that kind of solid regression fixing doesn't get you excited, I don't know what will."

Submission + - Like a Redstone Cowboy (youtube.com)

neonsignal writes: Machine creations in Minecraft are becoming increasingly complex as people build on each other's ideas. Some notable examples include a Rubik's cube simulator, a 5 channel music sequencer, a 3D color printer, a 16 bit processing unit, and Conway's Game of Life. My own recent contribution is the world's slowest Universal Turing Machine. I'm now waiting for someone to implement Tetris in redstone logic.

Submission + - Global Warming Skeptics Discover Global Warming (latimes.com) 7

Black Parrot writes: A team of Berkely Scientists skeptical of global warming, led by prominent skeptic physicist Richard Muller (and funded by the Koch Brothers) unexpectedly testified to skeptical politicians in the US House of Representatives that theiir results — still preliminary — is finding the same thing mainstream climate scientists have been telling us. Other scientists are unsuprised; the article quotes Peter Thorne (not on the team) as saying "Even if the thermometer had never been invented, the evidence is there from deep ocean changes, from receding glaciers, from rising sea levels and receding sea ice and spring snow cover." However, Thorne criticizes the team for announcing the preliminary results before publishing an peer-reviewed papers on their work.
