Wondering how our software development process works? Take a look!

Find me on twitter, or read my blog. Don't say I didn't warn you because I totally did.

However, I no longer work at Stack Exchange, Inc. I'll miss you all. Well, some of you, anyway. :)

no longer as "limited edition" unfortunately, so it won't have the Back to Karkand DLC included (available in a month or so) for free.

@nick this is gaming.se, nothing here is useful or makes any sense. Wait, did I just accidentally type that into a comment box and press submit? I guess I did.

the water is anisotropic filtering, not anti-aliasing. AA only affects edges not interior textures. codinghorror.com/blog/2006/01/anisotropic-filtering.html

comment Why do Rock Band Drumsets need to be recalibrated so often?
@blue also, is the behavior the same in RB2 and RB3? There's another variable for you to swap and see. I'd also lug a PC monitor in and try swapping that out as well.

comment Why do Rock Band Drumsets need to be recalibrated so often?
@blue right, but is is the audio or video that is changing? Try calibrating and playing with audio off, then rebooting and doing the same, to see. You're not reducing the variables here, just repeating the same thing over and over..
