Just as the dawn of a new day unfolds here in the U.S., so do I make this prayer: I pray to the creator of all things good and just that the American people may awaken today from the darkness that has veiled the truth about the current Administration, and together unite to defeat the worst President this country has ever endured. It is time to take...

I like to say “B is for Bibby” as I usually wear my baseball cap with the large red “B” on it all year long. But tonight, B is for believing in Boston baseball and their blessed and historic comeback from behind to clinch the American League pennant. It's about time....

I struggled all day to figure out how to best handle the fact that all the pages on the site changed from .html to .php. I was concerned that anyone arriving from an old .html link would not get what they were after. After much digging and asking around, I discovered a simple directive in the Apache mod_alias module that saved the day. One simple ...

However, to do so I had to change the file extension on every page of this site from .html to .php. If you have bookmarked any of the...

Another classic movie gets the makeover by Jennifer Shiman and her Angry Alien studio. This time out it's “Jaws in 30 Seconds (and Re-enacted by Bunnies).” As mentioned here before, Jennifer has a talent for capturing the essence of each film and presenting it in a short little Flash movie that she animates herself. It is a very creativ...

There is something I need to warn you about, especially if you have thought about trying the multiplayer game I posted a couple of days ago called iSketch... it is very addictive.

Early this morning, Nintendo took the wraps off the final design for their new dual-screen handheld slated for a November 2004 release in the US and Japan. The name for the device was also finalized as the Nintendo DS since the name "evokes the idea of a portable system with dual screens." I am excited about the new design, as I thought the one Ni...

Lite-Brite Lite-Brite was a technological wonder when it was first released back in 1967 by the Hasbro toy company. Images were created by poking the colored pegs through the black paper on the screen, which made the pegs appear to illuminate from the light housed in the case. The screen resolution wasn't too good, but hey... it was 1967! And now, thanks to the magic of JavaScript, you can play Lite-Brite on your computer. May the wonders of technology never cease.

"Screw the planet, I'm an American!" Life is good. A must read from Mark Morford at SFGate.com: "It is our global peril and our national trademark. Americans are notoriously, famously, massively blind to causality. We make zero connection between how we consume and the effects of that consumption on our bodies, our politics, the planet. It is stag...

Now that E3 has wrapped up, images pervade my thoughts of the many innovations and games announced and displayed at the show. Yes, there were many sequels shown—in fact, almost all the biggest games of this year's show have a number at the end—but video game sequels fare better in the hearts and minds of gamers than their counterparts i...

There is so much happening this week at the E3 expo in Los Angeles that it's really hard to keep up with it all. So many games, so little time one might say. And subsequent to the announcements from Nintendo on their new DS handheld and the upcoming realistic Zelda game, I've found it difficult to come up with anything worthy of a follow-up to all ...

Eiji Aonuma: “I'm sure all of you saw the video of the new Legend of Zelda game at this point. One thing that I'd like to point out to everybody is that none of that is CG.

Dating back to Nintendo's Space World 2000 demo reel, a brand new Legend of Zelda was revealed today for Gamecube at Nintendo's pre-E3 press conference.

Over the weekend I decided to give the blog a facelift, and though I had been changing the old banner's colors every month, as well as the colors of the associated style sheet, I wanted more significant changes: center the content in the browser window, and randomize the style sheet with a banner to match. Here's what I did to get the random style...
