Regardless of how you feel about the sport itself, it is a great piece of writing. Keep posting more like it.

Sounds interesting. Is there a demo somewhere so that we can see it in action?

-----


Yep, you can clone the repo or just download the examples folder and open the index.html from each example.

-----


Yup, got it. Was just wondering if there was a hosted example somewhere. But maybe I'm the only person who is that lazy?

Either way, looks great so far. CoffeeScript is still my fave.

-----


Just remembered I actually do have a hosted example -> http://gamehack.herokuapp.com/. This was a game I did for a hackathon with an earlier version of the engine. It also uses websockets. You need to open the game in two different tabs to play(open them in Chrome, for some reason inputs are not working in Firefox)

-----


I think your best bet is to download and run the files in the examples folder.

-----


Thanks so much for writing this. Sounds cliche but, "I actually learned something!"

This might be the best version of this song ever made.

Also try thebrowser.com

Mostly free, but if you subscribe you will get lots more (great) mostly long-form articles, and in cases where the article would normally be behind a paywall, they will do a special version for thebrowser's paying customers.

Thanks. Reading the Bear Grylls article now. Their 1pass offering seems brilliant. Will explore more.

If any post needed a [Satire] tag, it's this one. Great read, and I almost didn't click on it because I am tired of reading about standing desks.

-----


I had clicked, then exited out. When I read your comment, I gave it another look, and am glad I did. Great article.

It landed but the harpoon did not fire. I'm not sure what that means, but XKCD is live-drawing the event and has the Philae Lander's status as ???, so now I'm worried.

It sounds so natural that I immediately started thinking I had actually been saying it wrong all these years.

-----


I think I'm going to adopt this new pronounciation.

-----


pronunciation*

(it's one of few weird words that change spelling when you add a suffix, such as fridge/refrigerator)

-----


This is actually how you say it in Russian. Try Google Translate.

-----


fwiw, it's the way everyone in Russia pronounces it

-----


Yup. I thought it was part if the joke (that in a few generations, we might pronounce old language names differently).

-----


How do you usually pronounce it?

-----


How long until "I only have a landline" becomes the ultimate hipster creedo?

-----


Ugggg... why was this posted during the 7-Day Roguelike Competition week?? :)
