Doom for everyone. It’s not a particularly festive message, but as promised earlier this week, the Doom 3 source code is now out on a general public license. Programming types can meddle with the game’s inner workings as wintery temperatures force them to huddle close to the warm hum of excessive gaming rigs. Doom dad John Carmack announced the release to his horde of Twitter followers, while doffing his cap to Timothee Besset, who helped sidestep some shadow rendering license issues that had dogged an earlier release. Peer into the source code at the link below, and know the true face of despair Doom.Doom 3 source code available now, gory customizations welcomed originally appeared on Engadget on Wed, 23 Nov 2011 06:48:00 EDT.

Last week I attended (and presented at) the Øredev conference in Malmö. Sigge Birgisson invited me to be part of a fully Context-driven test track, which I gratefully accepted. It turned out to be quite a memorable experience. Øredev was the first ever *developer* conference (be it with a testing twist) I attended, which gave the event a totally different vibe for me. Cosy, laid back and open-minded. Geeky too, in a good way: they provided a cool conference app with a puzzle that could only be solved by obtaining other people’s codes. The side effect of that was that random people started addressing me with “Hi. Can I have your code?” moments before bolting off in their own space-time continuum. Speed dating for techies.
Beyond sales on or around Black Friday, the rise of deal-a-day sites, group-buying coupons, discount retailers, and online codes has created more discount deals 365 days a year. So instead of joining the long lines or sleep-deprived crowds on Black Friday, here’s how to take advantage of the sales that happen all year round. Clicking Coupons Subscribe to your favorite retailers’ online newsletters for “insider” coupon codes and deals on shipping, as well as private sales only accessible via links embedded in the emails. For example on November 11, Bluefly, an online discount retailer for designer fashion, ran a 12-hour sale offering an extra 30 percent off only to email subscribers, in addition to their regular deals. Many shopping rewards sites offer loyalty recognition in exchange for shopping on their site and buying items with their network of retailers. Beyond the points racked up for shopping, they also often offer extra incentives such as dedicated coupon codes. One such site, MyPoints, recently began featuring online coupon codes on its homepage and online retailers offering extra perks such as free shipping. Another popular coupon-aggregation site is Retail Me Not. Its homepage offers publicized coupons to several retailers with links to “clip” the coupons and head to the retailer’s site. Retail Me Not also lets you search specific online retailers to see any available coupons. Site users rate the success of the code and the date it was attempted, so if a code comes up “expired,” you know it’s not you. Deal-a-Day Keeps Your Wallet at Bay Deal-a-day sites have had astonishing growth in the past year. Groupon went from 3 million users in January 2010 to 20 million last fall to 115 million today. And hundreds of other companies have jumped on the group-coupon bandwagon. AT&T’s Deal of the Day, LevelUp, GroupCommerce, and Google Offers have all launched recently. Spending on deal-a-day sites is expected to go from $873 million today to $3.9 billion by 2015, according to market research company BIA/Kelsey. Group-buying sites can be a great way to pamper your mom who lives cross-country or stock up on heavily discounted gift cards and products. Beyond the household name titans like Groupon or LivingSocial, there are several specialized deal sites out there. Suit up your poochie with a bargain from Paws4Deals, or your hipster cousin with a quirky necktie from WildTies.com. Amazon also runs short-time sales on discounts to local classes and services.

Influenced by the album, Another Green World, by Brian Eno, Codes and Keys was recorded in eight different studios, using Logic Pro software. The band would record in each studio for no longer than two weeks, with vocalist and guitarist Benjamin Gibbard noting, “We’re all moving into a period in our lives where family is very important. So living off in the woods for a month away from family isn’t something we want to do. On this record I’ve written a couple songs in our downtime between studios and we start recording that brand new song on the first day of the next session, which is something we’ve never really had the opportunity to do before.”
