Frozen Synapse Is Getting A Sequel This Year

It’s been given away in countless Humble Bundles, plays excellently on mobiles and probably echoes the vibe of Counter-Strike in a turn-based format better than some of those browser games out there.

I thought yesterday’s drawing by Dong Tri Phan was close to unguessable. And it was, until Casual Prolix swooped it. Amazing job. Amazing guess.


Jason Clare Tore Malcolm Turnbull A New One Over The NBN

In general, Australian internet is not great. We’re aware of that. And the Australian government’s solution to that has been fraught with controversy. You could make the argument that the NBN we could have had has been ripped apart by partisan politics and in-fighting.
