I am taking a 3-month sabbatical for various reasons, as of 2013-11-15.

I love games, but don't have the disposable time to really count as hardcore despite liking traditionally "hardcore" game genres. Besides, the playing experience is so much more interesting to me than the mere winning.

I game mostly on the PC (Windows and Mac) and the XBox 360. iPhone games are fun diversions but keep my attention even less well than usual.

comment How can I stream PC Games to a Roku Box in real-time?
@JonL. Haven't used 'em, but I imagine they use the old concept of moving execution over the stream instead of the sound/video/input. We had that capability in the 80s. Or, they've solved some sync problems with clever engineering. Regardless, the Roku's protocol is not designed to solve sync problems, and in fact exploits the lack of need to sync in order to add quality buffering.
