Multi-user Hex is complete and online, click. You begin by logging in with any user name which puts you into the game's chat room. From there you can invite anyone else in the chat room to play a game with you. This of course requires that someone else besides you is in the chat room. Orpheus' Revenge is coming along nicely. That's the project my ...

Today, Google has a very cool theme in celebration of the birthday of Gaston Maurice Julia, father of the fractal and the Julia set named after him. If you don't know what fractals are or have never seen the gorgeous images that computers can produce with them: click on the Google link above; do a search for "Julia set"; and embark on a beautiful...

Gamespy today ran an interview with Metroid creator Yoshio Sakamoto in which he talks not only about the upcoming Metroid: Zero Mission (just 7 more days!), but also talks about the series' origin. Not simply a port of the original NES Metroid, Zero Mission is a brand-new adventure: Samus has new powers, there are new puzzles, there are three diff...

I just started to create my del.icio.us page, a free web-based social bookmarks manager. In case you have ever been at a different computer than the one you're used to surfing on and wished you had access to your bookmarks, del.icio.us is for you. Since half of the time I'm at home and the other half of the time I'm at RIT, this service is exactly...

An absolutely marvelous rant today by Cory Doctorow on Boing-Boing about digital rights management (DRM). Specifically, he begins by commenting on a recent blog entry of a Microsoft employee extolling the virtues of MS's own DRM over Apple's, but ends up saying a whole lot about why no DRM is the best DRM choice for the consumer. Also from Boing-B...

Having just done a little research and write up for my IMM class on Marshall McLuhan, the father of the electronic age, when I came across this entry on a new blog I learned of from SuperFastComputer, I was compelled to post a comment about it. It references an article written about the original coining of the term "Second Superpower" by a New York...

The pressure is subsiding slightly, finished up two major hurdles today and now I am enjoying a little breather. Bring on the games! E3 started today with pre-show press conferences by many of the major players. Sony announced their new baby, the PSP - PlayStation Portable. Of course it will be a phenomenal success, though it's not coming out unti...

While reading a post on Slashdot this weekend about video coverage of Mario Kart Double Dash, a link in the post brought me to a site where I could download a file containing the video coverage. Also available was a .torrent file for the file and I was curious as to what this .torrent file was. After a bit of investigation I concluded that I had ju...

Was just reading youngbradford dot com, the blog of a talented and musically inspired man from San Francisco that I just happened to come across one day out blogging. I absolutely love reading what this guy writes, as many times it has to do with music, and not just any music... the music of my life. Apparently it is also the music of his life, and...

In the "I wonder if this game will appear at E3" category, a couple of guys over at MIT have created a sensor device, the input for which comes in the form of a urination stream. That's right, installed in a urinal, You're In Control enables interactive games to be played on a screen mounted above it. Sounds like a lot of fun to me....

Taking a break from studies to see what's going on around the world, I'm sorry now I did: a Colorado DJ has been suspended for playing Dixie Chicks, the RIAA is now resorting to software capable of freezing your PC and deleting files, and the new as-yet-unpublished Harry Potter book was found left out in a field. A mad world we live in. I'm going...

Well I just spent literally all weekend long working on finishing up the third project (of 4) for the Intro: MultiMedia & the Web class I'm taking. Having logged at least 50-60 hours into this one, I figured I should post a link to the work I did for anyone who happens to come across this blog. Included is some fine attention to detail, and it's ki...

Just came back from the grand opening and dedication ceremonies for the B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences held in the atrium of that beautiful building. A humorous and entertaining event, most memorable was the light hearted bantering back and forth between Mr. Golisano and RIT President Al Simone. The biggest laughs ...

This just in from around the net... "The word is that Nintendo will show Pilotwings developed by Factor 5 at E3." Originally on the SNES and one of the N64 launch titles, PilotWings is another gem in Nintendo's treasure chest of franchises. Can't wait to see it, especially with Factor 5's track record (Star Wars Rogue Squadron I, II & III). Also...

Slashdot has just launched a games news site called games.slashdot.org not surprisingly. I've always enjoyed reading their rather geeky slant on tech stuff. While there I learned of a new meta news site on games called G-Spy. It's apparently a concept beta still in development, though could be very cool indeed. Looks like everyone is gearing up for...

Have you ever played a game and got so frustrated with it because whatever you did you just couldn't get past one particular boss? That is how my time is spent lately with Metroid Fusion. It's a fantastic game with engaging level design and boss fight after boss fight. The gratification felt when finally defeating that stubborn boss is glorious, an...

Lately I've been working on how I can be more mindful. Not an easy goal to achieve, and one which warrants constant vigilance (though should not be attempted while higher modes of consciousness are required such as when driving a car). Being mindful means to increase awareness of one's thoughts and feelings by simply observing oneself. Easier said...

The buzz is starting to mount towards that mother of all game events: the Electronic Entertainment Expo, or simply E3. With 3 weeks to go, you can actually feel it getting closer by the day, that is if you get even the least bit excited about announcements of new games and up coming releases. As for me, I get most excited from seeing new game conce...

A big shout out to Adbusters and their TV Turnoff Week campaign (April 21-27). Do yourself a favor and read a good book or weblog, or possibly even engage in some dialog with someone (geez, what a concept). I thought I was a freak for disliking the crap that all the networks throw out in projectile quantity. Last week I tried to watch a documentar...

...or, confessions of a reformed Animal Crossing (AC) addict. Either way you slice it, my AC days are done. It's time to move on. Though I'll admit that I logged more hours with AC than I have playing any other game, including even StarCraft. The game was surprisingly addictive to me and I found myself playing every single day for over three months...

Easter weekend and all that I've done is work... all weekend long. But as my previous entry noted, it most certainly is what I wanted to do. And there are times when all I want to do is play games, though this weekend certainly saw the pendulum swinging the other way. The weather this weekend has been beautiful and I have been enjoying each day, a...

I was sitting downstairs in the kitchen earlier this evening sharing with my mother the excitement and enthusiasm I'm feeling towards my school work and the classes I'm taking.
