Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Remix your Teams ringtone

Yes, really.

App pick of the week: Voxel Doom

This incredible mod for the original Doom adds 3D enemies, items, and weapons! Just grab a copy of GZDOOM (free, adds mouse look, jumping, and crouching) and your paid Doom/Ultimate Doom WAD (which is cheap if you don’t have it somehow). Here’s a good video showing it off.

Enterprise pick of the week: Azure Space: The family is expanding

More satellite connectivity for one and all — not just satellite vendors

Enterprise pick No. 2 of the week: PatchTuesday.com

This is an interesting project. “We will add the latest patches released from Microsoft for Patch Tuesday onto the site, test them, and report our findings monthly. However, we’re at the beginning stages of bringing everything together and would like to build the website with the community.” (Thanks to Bryan Dam for the pointer.)

Beer pick of the week: Grimm Festooning

It’s that time of year. The fall and Oktoberfest beers are coming in fast and fluidly. Grimm in Brookln makes a Marzen style beer called Festooning that uses German Vienna and Munich II malts. It’s an amber with caramel/honey/bready flavor and is 6%, so you could festoon with a few.
