"Wah!" they cry. "Why are developers wasting time on this! It's useless! Pointless! Just the mere notion of it mak...

I'm not someone who celebrates many holidays. As we head into the Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Years axis of festivity, I'm fairly unmoved.

They're playing Christmas music on all the radio stations and government buildings have begun decking the halls with non-denominational decorations. All of this can only mean one thing: it's time for the mad holiday rush. Once you've polished off that turkey dinner and put on a pair of your least ...
