Warning: Spoilers
I just played Elements: Transmission 120 and it left a bad taste in my mouth. I feel totally discouraged. It's not about competition, but whatever I've done in Hammer seems total rubbish compared to this mod. The guy behind this clearly displays a lot of dedication: the mapping detail and attention to gameplay and some nifty puzzles and new gadgets. No wonder he was offered a job by gearbox, Valve would be envious on his skills.

It's a pillar of inspiration for me and I think for the rest of us, I'm going to investigate how certain effects were achieved. It's nothing out of the ordinary, just extreme fine-tuning of already available source engine technology. Archie, I'm looking to you now. You will jizz in your pants when you see the lighting.

I'm going to leave you with some scenes from the last battle, so if you don't want to the see them, just get out of here! :))

Heroes of the Storm is... addictive.
Also a resource eating monster.

So I discovered something really cool in the kitchen. Was cleaning the stove of dried cooking oil and what not, and took out the stove grate and burner parts. I thought: "Hmm, I wonder how the flame would burn without those parts...". It's a fucking rocket! Instant bunsen burner.
This is so fun, must try one more ti

I loose a lot of time commuting and walking in the city nowadays, and I am a bit frustrated by that lost time. Yeah the first times when you go on new routes you admire the landscape and buildings but then it's routine.
I'd like to start listening to some podcasts while on the road, but I don't know where to start. I have my phone and an MP3 player.

Do you have any podcast and podcast apps recommendation in the technical domain? For example tech news, stuff about coding... hardware etc. There was once a cute podcast from "techstuff" or something like that, it was nice in that it explained how different devices work.
Or any podcast that you find sufficiently interesting... I just want to start somewhere and see if listening to podcasts is a thing I could do :).

EDIT Just to be clear, I'm talking about walking in the city and going by bus, which at rush hours can take up 40 minutes between point A and B. When I commute by train there is wi-fi so I can watch stuff on youtube.
