Alan Turing Pardoned.

51 years doesn't seem like a long time, but it's far too long to have waited to pardon a man so revered in my profession.

I’ve switched to standing & track my steps now (10,000 steps is really difficult to achieve every day!) — I should probably track calories/weight now too.

There’s no question that regular exercise is essential to health. For the vast majority of our evolutionary history, we’ve had to exert ourselves — often quite strenuously — to get food, find shelter and simply survive.

I just finished playing Gunpoint, and at 18 hours, it was a LOT more entertaining than I expected it to be.  The developer describes it as “a stealth puzzle game that lets you rewire its levels to trick people”, which is pretty much the sort of game I love.

My personalized ending is listed here, with the text ending posted below.

I got it on Steam; there’s a free demo and it costs $10.  Great game :)

A case of crossed wires

27 dead. 28 injured. 20 jobs. $13,000. I’ve had better weeks.

They don’t let me name names on this blog, but the person behind the hit I was investigating is dead now.

He played a dangerous game, and he didn’t have the cards.

The trigger man’s dead. I thought that would feel good, but there’s no escaping what it cost.

I don’t know.

I think I picked the right side.

Maybe that doesn’t matter. Maybe all that matters is justice.

Either way, I need a drink.


Apple claims to be protecting our privacy, but the stakes are so high that it’s difficult to believe anyone; especially unsworn statements.
