My friend, Chris Sturgill has a real paper-and-ink comic coming out: egg. It looks good, so buy a copy. Chris was a fantastic artist on my Joust remake team at Midway Games West (old Atari: holler out, yo.), and is currently avoiding me on Xbox Live for projects like this. ;-)
ASUS | Eee PC: I'm seriously thinking about getting one of these for email/web use around the house. My wife loves the little Panasonic Let's Note r4 which work provided to me, but it's work's machine, not mine -- and by extension "not hers."
Do any of you have an opinion on these little buggers, or suggestion of alternatives for similar functionality?
UFC 2009 Undisputed - Our game's official site has gone live; there's a video of the Las Vegas event at which it was played. You can even see a shot of one of the team being coached by Rampage Jackson!
Punch, punch lines make Rampage a star - MMA - Yahoo! Sports: Regardless of its origin, Rampage will wear his chain – a new one, he’s not sure what happen to that old one – Saturday when he enters the octagon to defend his title against Forrest Griffin at a sold out Mandalay Bay Events Center. The sports books have him as the heavy favorite.
He may even wind up wearing the chain in Hollywood if, as rumor has it, he takes the role of another famous chain-wearing badass in succeeding Mr. T as B.A. Baracus in a remake of “The A-Team.”

These guys are called モナー (monar), and I am assuming the origin of this word comes from 「お前もな」. There's a lot of 2 chan lingo, and 「お前もな」 is just one of them. Another 2 chan lingo that I know is 厨房 (chu bo), which means kitchen, but it actually means 中坊 (chu bo), a middle school boy (beginner).
A lot of Japanese engineers and otaku's are VERY familiar with these 2 chan lingo.

Pixel: Photoshop for the Linux Crowd | Compiler from Wired.com: "Linux users unhappy with the GIMP image editor may want to take a look at Pixel, a cross platform image editing application, which more closely mirrors the behavior of Adobe Photoshop.
