Okay, this has to be due to a lack of sleep. Either that, or Dan Rather enjoys a bit of crack as much as the next reporter.

The blog might get ugly in a bit. Pardon the dust.

2400 mg of Motrin…. take that, you ailing back!

Let’s see if I survive. Currently, a back spasm that occured late Sunday night is still affecting me. Pain throughout the body, weakness, inability to feel my hands; Oh joy!

The idea that Apple is moving toward x86 hardware is old. Most people do not realize that even if they did move toward x86, you would not be able to just grab a Mac OS X CD, format your Windows box, and install freely. Parts of the x86 hardware are going to be proprietary, at least at first. Specific hardware will be supported to get the x86 platform started, then full support may roll in if the idea takes off.

Sega is about to stop producing hardware of all types, but as a final hurrah they may produce a PCI card for PCs to play Dreamcast games. I see a slight problem with this. The Dreamcast uses a proprietary GD-ROM, and not the usual CD-ROM. You can emulate all you want, but hardware is hardware.

I never played the original Mechwarrior, I loved the sequel and expansion packs, then the third installment was marred by horrendous control. Mechwarrior 4, though put out by M$, has some great previews. These previews show off the mechs of the series. Way back in the day when I used to *cough*roleplay*cough*, we would mostly make our mechs/characters and that would be it. Spend about 3 hours making the perfect character, flushing out all of the details, and never actually use them. If I find my old folder of characters, I will scan some in just so you can all know how low I have been.
