Tonight on GeekNights, we run through a tech news roundup, covering Yahoo's acquisition of Tumblr, Yahoo's updates to Flickr, the FDA's upcoming decisions regarding triclosan in antibacterial soap, the first real augmented reality overlay glasses, and Yahoo in general. Rym challenges you to set up MRTG, and we talk at length about Scott's newfound love of reality television thanks to Strip Search and Kitchen Nightmares.
Tonight on GeekNights, we nominally talk about passwords and cheat codes (e.g., why PAKING PAKING PAKING PAKING and 8uuuuu uuuuuu uuuuuu uuuuuu work the way they do). We also talk at length about why World of Warcraft is fading so quickly, the Stanley Cup playoffs, and a new Adventure Time game is coming.
Tonight on GeekNights, it's Adventure Time! (Scott wouldn't sing the song). In the news, Venture Brothers is starting up a new season soon, physical media continues to die, and Princess Knight is getting a remastered release (but dub only).
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider what happens (and should happen) to your bits (i.e., your emails, tweets, hard drive, and collected digital output of a human lifespan), when your meat stops working (i.e., you die). Law, society, human drama, and fear make it a much more complicated issue than you might realize. Do the dead have rights? Should they?
In the news, the Ask.com Toolbar is malware, Ninite is the closest thing to a Windows repo you'll ever find, and Google Authenticator just implements TOTP, which you can totally use for two-factor authentication in anything. Also, Adobe updated their software suite to be subscription only (and this is a good thing).
Tonight on the GeekNights Lounge, we discuss camping. Several people we know have never been properly camping. Fires, hobo meals, pooping in the woods: it's all here! We also ridicule the remaining self-described anarchists who pull crap like this every May Day.
Tonight on GeekNights, having waited since 2010 for this, we finally are able to review the fantastic Monaco. TL;DL: It's an unqualified "must buy." Recall that we interviewed Andy Schatz on the subject once. Also, Counter-Strike: GO gets an update, bringing back a classic map and a widely misunderstood Operation Payback, and Papers Please looks extremely promising.
Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about some anime we knew of, but never bothered to watch, as well as anime we watched for a while, but then stopped. From the shounen fighting shows that had a few good starting episodes following by neverending fights (Bleach, Naruto, One Piece, Yuyu Hakusho, etc...) to the crappy knockoff TV show reboots of otherwise good shows (El Hazard: The Wanderers, Tenchi TV, Lodoss), from shows we straight ignored despite being constantly talked about (Nadesico) to those we watched more than half of before just stopping (Ergo Proxy, Kaze no Yojimbo). Some shows just aren't worth watching (until you're old and have nothing better to do: Legend of the Galactic Heroes, GaoGaiGar). Before that, Rym gives a more detailed review of Shin Sekai Yori (From the New World), which is basically a psychic 1984, and Monaco is real and playable!
