Comical how after an entire article of a developer just kicking around some old stories and repeatedly qualifying that they did this voluntarily, not under the gun, and that at the end of it they are very proud of what they did, that you latch onto this one thing. Read more

Archiving all required data for titles isn’t trivial, and it was far more difficult when data storage costs were higher. There’s a pretty good reason archivist is an actual job. It was the same with the BBC, the tapes were taking up a lot of space and porting them forward to new media was either impossible (it didn’t Read more

Your mileage will vary. Some content systems will require a build by engineers by virtue of scripting languages being included in the content. You can avoid the larger build steps with nightly build systems, but is likely an engineer will still have a much larger footprint (300-400 GB in my hypothetical) than the Read more

It was absolutely an external contractor, it never was going to be an active developer at ND. Anyone thinking it was, was projecting.

No, entirely wrong. Activision Blizzard is made up primarily of Blizzard, Activision, and King. Blizzard is the largest operating division, followed by Activision and King.

They literally don’t care as long as it doesn’t actually hurt the brand and it makes money without costing money. Read more

The meeting was about copyright protection and not censorship/ratings/gun-violence, so really anyone could have been there to get the job done. I presume Zynga was there because they’re based out of South-Bay/Silicon Valley and at the time they had a sizable enough market share and revenue to warrant a courtesy invite.

I’ve kicked the tires to start redirecting via HTTPS so hopefully this resolves later today.

I don't believe it's set up for HTTPS traffic yet, it's just an HTTP redirect to anitay.kinja.com. Thanks for letting me know though.

One thing I’ll say about this adaptation is it’s amazing that they managed to take a controversial light novel and managed to make it even worse. Read more

I give it 9/10 odds it was a random software engineer that made a random arbitrary limit to simplify something and now six years later it’s coming back to bite the service.

Arbitrary limits exist everywhere in software, usually as a check against what a developer believes is an upper bound, because you don’t design a system to be infinite. The 1000 limit made sense when it was <10 GB of storage, but now that limit doesn’t. Read more
