Rickay sucking

(no subject)

Yay! Finally got the DS online, after setting the router into moron mode - ie, no encryption (not that WEP counts anyway), no firewall. So I now have a friend code for Animal Crossing: Wild World - now to find someone else who does. ^_^;

Lapine fans really ought to take a look at hawthorn in the fur. Aww! ^_^

With all the hoohah over Boot Camp allowing Intel Macs to boot XP, I was left wondering whether pure virtualisation environments like VMware take much of a performance hit, and whether they're still suitable for gaming use. Being able to multiboot's nice enough, but vastly less elegant than being able to have the additional OS(s) running and available simultaneously, both for the multiplied potential, and the inherent ability to "boot" by simply loading an entire memory image off disk, with all the applications' states preserved. (Reminds me, I should get VPC reinstalled sometime - unfortunately, it doesn't store license info in the usual places, like ~/Library/Application Support, so the recent reformatting toasted that. Wonder if OpenStep 4.3 would install? Would be fun to see NextStep again.. or BeOS, for that matter. Never did manage to lay my paws on a devsystem, unlike, say, tilton, though I was registered with Be, in the hopes of being able to afford such)

I think I'd like to get stuck into OpenGL. Any recommendations for tutorials? The old NeHe ones might be as good a place as any to start, even if that won't bring me quite to the point of photorealistic animated lapines..

Oh, so much Kenny Everett goodness coming my way! 5GB of commercially unavailable fun. ~happy bunny~ I'd never even heard the name until a year or two back, when akira114 sprang one volume of Ernie Kovacs' work on me, but I can definitely see parallels between them.

VoIP for voiceposts appears to be in the works.

Today's bit of giggly low humor is brought to you by Peeps.

I should get around to watching The White Room sometime. It does seem to be quite the KLF curiosity..

QotD, from JK Rowling, who has apparently derided models whose "only function in the world appears to be supporting the trade in overpriced handbags and rat-sized dogs".

So, the PS3 will debut at around 499-599€. Eep! For that price, Sony's really going to have to make sure the initial titles are something to behold - certainly, there'll be the usual early rush regardless, but opening day sales don't foretell success or failure.

Chax is a handy add-on that adds tabs to Tiger's version of iChat, as well as other goodness, such as Growl notification. (No, not you, growlcoon =:)

Today's moment of boggle is brought to you by freakylynx, who noticed that Paris Hilton has been approached to play Mother Theresa.
