Tuesday Tidbits - October 5, 2010 Issue

I've purchased three different sets of shower knobs from my local Lowe's. None of them have worked. Won't bore you with the details of why. Standardization anyone? Do we really need something as simple as this to be so complicated?

About today's QOTD: It describes a game developed by a 23-year-old German student. There is also a video of it if you go to that link. He has the backing of his university. They consider it a teaching tool. I think that's a bit of a stretch. I don't see that value and I'd be surprised if people who play that game do. My guess is the players will simply try to win the game and not give it a moment's thought. Bang, bang, shoot-em-up video games are just that. Games. Getting all worked up about it will only make it more desirable. Don't do it. Besides, everyone knows loud rock music is the true evil.

Quote of the Day
The game asks players to play either as an East German trying to escape the country by crossing the area known as the "death strip" or play as a guard tasked with gunning down all would-be escapees.
