  • Who knew? Apparently I am a boy!

    I had to share this with you guys because I thought you might find it mildly amusing. Not only has 'New Scientist' decided I am a programmer, other articles have decided that I am male. Ah, the media and their preconceived assumptions.

    "Developer Julian Spillane of Canada’s Frozen North Productions and another programmer calling himself Ne0nRa1n have created a version of Tetris that uses BIOFEEDBACK TO CALM YOU DOWN. According to newscientist: “Players put one hand on a device that measures their pulse rate. As their pulse rises, so does the speed of the blocks falling from the top of the screen. That makes the game harder, creating an incentive for the player to calm down and so get a higher score.” The game, called BioBlox, will soon be available on Windows."
