Farewell, Internet (Download Squad)

Apr 13th 2011 11:57AM Well, this sucks :p

I will miss DLS greatly. It's one of the handful of blogs I read on the laptop to ease me in to the day while drinking my first coffee in bed. There was almost always something interesting or useful to find here.

Good luck with whatever you guys get into in the future.

Google Chrome changes its logo... again! (pictures) (Download Squad)

Mar 25th 2011 9:30AM I like the old new one!

Instagram update adds two new filters and eight new languages (Download Squad)

Dec 19th 2010 8:23AM This app is just superb. It's a challenge working within quite narrow limits, but the creativity of some users is just astonishing.

Apple's Ping adds support for collaborative, social playlists (Download Squad)

Dec 14th 2010 8:52AM Presumably others will only be able to actually listen to the tracks if they already have them in their iTunes collection? Seems to rather miss the point in that case.

Spotify has been doing playlist sharing and collaboration now for ages and and registered user can hear any of the tunes.

I get the feeling that the sound most Ping users are going to hear in their 'social' space is the sound of cricket and the occasional passing tumbleweed.

Actually, are there actually any Ping users? Serious question.

Smart People Stay Up Late and Sleep Late (Asylum)

Nov 19th 2010 5:35AM Ok, so, all those who don't rise early are lazy then? Did you miss the part that said sleep late and GO TO BED LATE or did you just ignore it?

I'm a night owl and I am at my most creative after midnight, but I bet I actually sleep less than you (four hours a night on average - thankyou 9 to 5 work pattern :p)

Google offers up to a 40% discount on all JPEGs -- with new WebP format! (Download Squad)

Sep 30th 2010 5:04PM PNG ftw. All this and an alpha channel too.

The Daily Grind: What would your t-shirt say? (Massively)

May 22nd 2010 10:36AM Trammel Landrush 1999 - I remember when all this was fields.

CitiesXL to close multiplayer features (Massively)

Jan 27th 2010 2:45PM To quote Tom Hanks in Big

"What's fun about playing with a building?"

What or who is Second Life's Avaline for? (Massively)

May 26th 2009 3:34PM If you could channel the caller to a conference voice session in-world, then I could see a use for allowing those unable (or unwilling) to run Second Life to attend in-world meetings via a phone.

Otherwise, meh.

The Daily Grind: Your favorite Heroic or Villainous memories? (Massively)

Apr 28th 2009 8:20AM I too have many fond memories, but one of the stand-out moments for me was playing as part of an eight man all radiation defender team and going through missions like a hot knife through butter. I later joined an all rad SG and had many such moments.
