Mac UT2004

According to Inside Mac Games, Epic's Mark Rein officially announced Unreal Tournament 2004 for Mac!

"According to Rein, the OS X version of UT2004 will be released "at approximately the same time" as the Windows version, and will include optimizations to run on Apple's new G5 desktops. Distribution for the Mac version will be handled by veteran Mac publishers Macsoft."

The PC version of the game is being written specifically for AMD's new 64 bit processor, and Ryan Gordon (the man behind UT2003 for mac) was even demoing the 64-bit version at AMD's launch event. It's pretty safe to assume this game will kick ass especially on the G5.

GameBoy Advance Wireless Adapter

Motorola has announced this nifty short range wireless adapter for Gameboy Advanced and SP. Up to five players at a time but only for use with people close by. The odd thing is while it uses the 2.4ghz band (bluetooth, wifi, ect) it actually uses the old TDMA cell phone standard. I guess motorola had a lot of old phones left over. The article says it will be available in Japan in early 2004.

Guerrilla Art

This lady goes to Home Depots across the US, buys materials like cement and bricks, and builds sculptures with them while still inside the store, then leaves it for the employees to clean up. She has already done it 50 times and plans on doing it in every state.

AngleGrinder Man to the Rescue

This British guy is my new personal hero! He drives around England with an angle-grinder cutting the boot (wheel clamp) off people's car for free. I got the boot on my car once and not only did it cost a fortune to have the city remove, but they ruined my new rims.

R.I.P. Mr Ritter

John Ritter passed away last night from a heart defect. I was good friends with his son Jason and daughter Carly when I was in junior high school and in spending lots of time at their house in Brentwood I got to know John pretty well. I can honestly say he was one of the nicest and most genuine people I have ever met, and not just for a celebrity, a truly good human being. He will be missed and our condolences go out to his entire family.

"Coming Soon!  Windows Media Player 9 Series for Mac OS X will deliver compatibility with 9 Series audio and video content."

Maybe they will make it not suck ass this time, and maybe Bill Gates will buy me my own personal porn star. Seriously Bill, I know you can spare one.

Atari Games Rule

Halfie took time out of his busy married life and got me the Atari 10-in-1 from Jakks Pacific. It's an Atari 2600 with 10 games all enclosed in an original-style Atari 2600 joystick. The games are:
Circus Atari
Missle Command
Real Sports Vollyball
Yars Revenge

If they added Frogger, Pitfall, and Joust I would never leave the house. Nintendo should make these with old NES games and the original NES controller.

I love reading Craigslist. I'm not looking to buy anything or trying to find a new job, I just love how cracked out some of the people are. Among the loads of mentally unbalanced postings I found 2 gems that are the best of the bunch.
The Rules for shopping at Costco
