Geek Links — Feb 23, 2011
Posted on February 23, 2011 by Chris Nelson
We missed last week, so we’re back with an extra large selection of links for this one. We’re heavy on programming, but we’ve also got a lot of videogame links, as well as some pretty good programming humor.
Note: I might have actually missed a few links I’ve collected these past few weeks. If I find any, I’ll post them in next week’s edition.
Note to site readers: Since Kris got us a Playsation 3, our movie intake has pretty much slowed to a trickle. Nothing seems to compare to the excitement of Little Big Planet. Some reviews may return shortly, but in capsule format only. LBP is that good. Honest.
