Great idea! Signed up! But sjeez, I must really not understand football – I’ve got a 0.37% prediction on my list. This can only end badly :P

“Start the game already!” :D

Even without sound enabled, typing ‘14’ would still produce smirks all around :chuckle:

bitbucket uses mercurial, which I’ve only used a bit, but is pretty comparable with git too, and quite good from what I hear, just not as widely adopted.

This is not true; bitbucket also supports git repositories.
Sure, they offer mercurial as an option, but most users use git.

I’m not too excited, honestly. For me, Twitter was about content, not about managing a profile. The fonts are too large (and it seems to vary?) and the images too spacious.

I’ll probably forget what it used to look like in a week, tops. ;)

https://www.digitalocean.com/pricing/
Just checked and all area seems higher than http://mediatemple.net/webhosting/vps/developer/ .

Are you sure you’re reading this right? DigitalOcean is much cheaper than MT.

EDIT: Or did you mean that all specs are higher, for a cheaper price? In that case, I wasn’t reading your comment right, instead. Oops! ;)

Just like the last couple of years, Google is hosting an online programming competition! As there are always a couple of enthousiasts around on these forums, I’d like to alert you guys to the 2014 edition. The qualifiers have just kicked off 10 minutes ago, so you still have 27 hours to score 25 points and qualify for the next round.

You can find Google Code Jam 2014 here

Annnnddd… Go! :chuckle: Do post here if you’re participating!

EDIT: Jeez. I guess we really did become a community of designers after all ;)

That’s crazy! Do you get the full 500Mbps?
Depends on the peering. For optimized / cloud / CDN sites like YouTube, Facebook, Yahoo! etc – yes, I get around 51MB / s ( 500 Mbps )

Note that 51MB/s is actually 400Mbps ;) There’s 8 bits to a byte.
