Are people not believing in evolution only within and around the US? I only ever here that from over there.  In the end, evolution is going to happen to them as well and their believes will disappear.

2-step verification

Recently, I enabled Two-factor authentication on my Google Account as I use it for a lot of things. It's just so much more secure this way. I like the possibilities you get to receive your verification code. At first it seems more complicated to get everywhere logged in. But on your trusted devices you need to enter the verification code only rarely. For my main account it's worth the added effort to make it much more secure.

OpenGL performance

Faster Zombies! | Valve
Left 4 Dead 2 is running at 315 FPS on Linux. That the Linux version runs faster than the Windows version (270.6) seems a little counter-intuitive, given the greater amount of time we have spent on the Windows version.
I heard that already from different places. OpenGL seems to have a bit less of an overhead than DirectX. But then, who cares if it runnt 270 or 315 FPS. Can't see that difference anyways...
