A pretty solid preliminary list

The 300 Games Every Game Developer (and Gamer) Should Know. It's got most of my favorites: Asteroids, Space War, Adventure, and Balance of Power, but misses a couple: Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy and Star Trek. Are your favorites there? via [ Mark Bernstein ]

This is the background that I made over five (count them 5) years ago for my Halloween themed pages. Feel free to use w/ proper credit. View Schwalloween image

Schwalloween... 5 years later.

I can't believe that this is the 5 year anniversary of the famous Schwalloween. Damn, we're getting old.

SONY to ship PSX for $750

Sony will offer its PSX PlayStation-cum-personal video recorder for under $800, the consumer electronics giant said yesterday. Two models will ship later this year in Japan, one with a 160GB hard drive, the other with 250GB of hard disk storage - the latter enough to hold 13 and a half days' worth of TV programming.

State of Depression.

I can barely even talk about the game this morning. The feeling of sadness and depression throughout this fan is beyond compare. But the feeling of anger and resentment is even higher. It's not at the Red Sox players to be clear. This has been one of the best seasons and best teams I've ever seen out of this clubhouse. My anger lies solely with Grady Little. Now I am not a manager of a baseball team - not that anyone even confused me of being one. That being said, how in the world can you leave your pitcher out to dry like he did with Perdro last night. Perdro pitched 7 wonderful innings and managed to get out of a very dangerous jam at the bottom of the 7th. You have relievers that have been doing amazing things in this post season. Use them. Do not listen to your pitcher when he says "he's still got it" - it is your job, Mr. Baseball Manager, to recognize the "truth" and make the correct decision. You almost cost us the series in game 4 vs. Oakland when you left Burkett in for too long. And who in the world knows why Kim was even in any post game series. I haven't read one article or watched one news program once the Yankees had homered to win in extra innings. I am not sure what the rest of the world is saying right now about it. I know that when I saw Perdo walk onto the field in the 8th inning, I could only think of three words: Fire Grady Little.
