I just had too many of these, had to do something with ‘em.
Just before we went to press, or didn’t, because we have a webpage, Blastaar mentioned the Homestar Runner cartoons in an e-mail. Though I have a sneaking suspicion that this is one of those “u just found homestar runner? dam” type moments, I had to risk it. The Commentary tracks on some of the cartoons are not to be missed.
Lewis Black steals the (Daily) show every Wednesday, and hearing him talk games was highly satisfying.
You’ve played Pong, I’m willing to accept that without much investigation. You’ll likely concede that you haven’t played it in this particular fashion, however.
I can’t say enough good things about Trillian, a multi-messenger IM client that has gotten better with every release.
Like most skiing games, perhaps the best part of Ski Stunt Simulator is subjecting your on-screen counterpart to near-fatal injuries in the high mountains, where help is unlikely to arrive.
When trying to track down a cartoon that had been pulled from the NYT website, I came across the personal writings of one John Scalzi. The man can turn a phrase. What’s more, he’s also benevolent - as can be seen in this piece, wherein he assists the greasy in writing top-drawer hate-mail.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation is now representing the Bnetd project, which means it’s now officially on. The letter they sent back to Vivendi is very direct, and I have no doubt that the corporate response to this will be forceful. The best thing that could happen for everyone involved is a compromise of some kind, one that would allow Blizzard to maintain their Key checks and geeks to host private Battle.nets. Even if that was possible, and it’s not, not in a million years, it would just be a matter of time until a similar issue came up. The EFF is involved because we’re talking about setting a crucial legal precedent - and if it’s going to happen, it might as well happen now.
