I’ve just read some very interesting news stories, thanks to Dave Barry’s blog.
First, amazing new technology to help prevent women from being mugged. Why didn’t I think of that?
So I guess the gamercards I made won’t work now. : (
I’ve really enjoyed my PS2; I have a good number of games for it. And I was looking forward to the PS3.
I got my MINI Cooper on Saturday, and it’s great. It’s fun to drive, and it makes me happy looking at it every time I get into or out of it. I’ll post pics here before too long.

That is, if you had enough time and money to do all the things you do in your free time to escape the stress of everyday life, so much that you could do those things as much as you wanted. When you got bored with or tired of those things and set them aside… what would you do? If you were retired but still young, and didn’t have to worry about money… what would you do?
This is kind of cool.

I’ve been having some fun with the Forge on Halo 3. Unfortunately, though, there’s no support for matchmaking with custom games and maps (yet), which means I haven’t been able to really playtest the stuff I’ve made (I don’t have a full friends list and I usually end up playing when they’re not on). If you have Halo 3, please download the maps and/or game types on my fileshare (gamertag: SharedProphet) and let me know what you think.
For example, pertinent goings-on with members of Congress are revealed.
These cartoons should be required reading for everyone with internet access. Or something.
