I’m a bioinformatics PhD student at EMBL-EBI and the University of Cambridge but I’m originally from Berlin.

comment Is there a way to see Minecraft's source code?
I’d be interested in the legality of the MCP … since Minecraft isn’t Open Source, how legal is it to distribute its (restituted) sources?

comment Where can I find EULAs for games BEFORE I purchase them?
Hm, isn’t Steam obliged to refund it to you? I know that stores in Germany are obliged to refund any software product of which you didn’t accept the EULA, even if the package has been opened. Some software even had a note to this effect placed on their CDs.

@tzenes There is no “list of tags you don’t see”, that I’m aware of. Ignored tags are grayed out, not hidden. How does this policy work? I’m unable to find a pertinent FAQ, and I don’t see how I can hide spoilers in titles.

comment Getting the Overclocker achievement in Portal 2
Compared to this video, my portal-playing has all the agility of an eagle. Piloting a blimp. :-(

comment How to make this jump across in Testchamber 16 in Chapter 8?
That was probably the hardest test chamber. It took me about 30 minutes to get rid of the robots (maybe more? lost my timing) and ten more seconds to get to the exit. ;-)

comment What exactly is a “cheese” in Starcraft 2?
Just to be clear: so basically it’s name-calling used by players who fail to anticipate their opponents’ moves?
