  • An Unnamed Source Who Shouldn’t Be Anonymous

                         

                           

    “When you find a problem in the source code, it’s very difficult to explain the consequences of that problem to a judge or jury,” he told me. “It’s written in a foreign language, and the effects are hard to trace. We’re rarely able to say, ‘Aha, here’s this person’s breath test and here’s the problem that caused it to be wrong.’”

                           

    Mr. Workman’s mind worked a lot like the computer systems into which he delved: He had a mental index of more than 15 years of legal battles and civic investigations into problems with breath-testing programs, and he knew exactly where to find the incendiary bits. When I dug into flawed test results in Washington, D.C., for example, he sent me a video recording of a police officer turned whistle-blower testifying at an oversight hearing.

    Developer Zeth recently put up a Linux demo of their in-development action RPG, Bound By Blades, which is in need of some testing and feedback.

    Using a pretty fun sounding four-corner combat system, where you run from corner to corner around the outside of enemies and attack/defend at each point. It's pretty unusual and good to see something a little different. Sadly, their recent Kickstarter failed to get funding. However, they've confirmed development will continue but it's going to be smaller in scope.
