Probably the most important post I'll ever make...


For those of you unfamiliar with this site, it's a post of all the games that are the creme de la creme...and out of print. So, you loved playing System Shock or Captin Goodnight and wanna have another crack at it.

They got 'em all. And most of them can be downloaded for free via BitTorrent.

Go and be merry.

IPod TP holder a little late for xmas...

So, I went to MacWorld last week. I got in free so I decided ta go even thought I don't own a mac. Man, was it silly. A whole expo of useless ipod crap. Here' my favore though. A combo ipod/tp holder. I know I want one...

Also, I've posted a few of my animations from school on my website. Just click on the links and they should download to your computer. The final animation has a little error with black bars flying across the screen (you'll see it) which I should be able to fix when I go back and scan the drawings in. Nothing amazing, but you can see how I'm improving just between last semester and now.


BTW, the final project movie was probably over 500 individual drawings. Here's what the final stack of movies looks like...

New Sounds for New Windows...

I don't normally post news items, but this was really interesting. Turns out the guitarist from King Crimson has been creating the new default sounds for windows vista, the new operating system that's coming out soon. Can't wait to have Thrakattak playing on startup ;).
