DiRT comes along and makes me forget about Forza 2 for a couple of days.
Okay, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration. But based on the demo, DiRT looks to be very, very good. I was a little surprised when a fellow gamer mentioned that people were saying it was better than Forza, shrugging it off as hyperbole. But as soon as I started playing – no, wait – as soon as I got to the menus it was already awesome.
Do you have lots of items? Perhaps you could use some Great Pockets.
[Adult Swim] has posted up some new music. Go forth and enjoy, and watch the Me-I video.
Beyond comment spam. Way beyond.
Comment spam has been around for awhile and is a pretty common experience for any blog admin. Thankfully I have Akismet to help me out, which is why I was surprised to see this email:
To: [my comment address]
Subject: [andylaub.com] Comment:
<a href=”http://pharmaduk.xshorturl.com/levitra.html”>buy levitra</a><a href=”
Seems pretty standard. So I wonder how this got past Akismet and wander into my admin to delete said comment, only to find that it’s not there.
And then I realize: it’s not a real comment notification. A normal subject line will be formatted with the blog name in brackets, not the URL. Furthermore, it will give links to both view the post and delete the comment.
So I’ve got to say, this is clever(?), but I don’t get the point. But asking what the point of spam is beyond being part of the internet experience has about the same point as spam itself.
If you’re like me, you’re probably saying to yourself “I don’t spend nearly enough time on the internet.” If that’s the case, then good news everyone! Adult Swim’s Fix Adult Swim Video has been updated in both interface and content, with a ton of regular shows and seven new pilots for your time wasting.
Forza 2 rocks my socks, and it’s just a demo.
JB’s persistent hounding (fine, occasional reminders) has led to my downloading of the Forza 2 demo, the full game for which comes out later this month. After playing it for about 25 minutes, I shut it off, my impressions solidified:
That’s it? One of the most highly-anticipated games this year is coming and my biggest complaint is the lack of spoiler movement? Well, yeah. But if a game touts its inclusion of detail, then they’d better be prepared to catch some flak for missing a few.
Regardless, the game looks fantastic so far, and I’m excited for the final product.
In two more months, we’ll know whether The Transformers movie is really good or really mediocre. But plot aside, giant robots are always cool, so enjoy some in hi-res.
No more JS on the homepage. I think.
Oh yes! Yes yes yes yes yes YES YES.
It’s the new Saab 9-3.
I am very much digging the new Bell & Ross BR01 Instrument Tourbillon. Too bad it’s apparently the same price as my house.
…once the cells have been without oxygen for more than five minutes, they die when their oxygen supply is resumed.
An amazing article on MSNBC about death and resuscitation.
Version 14 has landed.
So here’s a new look, and it just happens to be May 1st. I’m getting better at this “every six months” thing.
“There’s no chance that the iPhone is going to get any significant market share. No chance.” Yah, alright. Maybe instead of speaking in absolutes you could just state these kinds of things as opinions and then you wouldn’t look like such a fool when you’re wrong.
I’m not trying to say the iPhone is a sure thing, but it’s too early to be so dismissive.
Burnout: Paradise is coming this winter, and bringing with it “an open world environment where you can do anything, anywhere, anytime!” This game is going to be good.
