Out of the Blue

Happy New Year! I hope everyone who celebrated last night had a safe and happy time, and that those hang-overs aren't too bad. I got to be designated driver for our own festivities, so my own head is fine today. What was interesting was how deserted the roads were where we drove last night. I was prepared to be quite wary of erratic drivers, but there were none to be found, nor were there any sober ones either, which was certainly a relief. Anyway, here's to a great 2003!

That article is tongue-in-cheek, anyone with 1/2 a brain can see that.

In 2003, I forsee the resurgence of Text Based MUDs as weary gamers tire of flashy graphics and over the top sound effects.

Heh, I would assume the the writer of the article should be lumped within the last category. Don't we all just love sweeping generalizations... (the iMac comment REALLY cracks me up, the guy doesn't seem to realize macs aren't intel based and don't measure speed the same, go fig %))

9. GPS stalker Jan 2, 2003, 01:50 Some guy
 
Funny how they assume he was following her and that the GPS was installed for that purpose. Perhaps it was installed a long time ago for anti theft purposes.

Hmmm, wonder if the ones that designed it were tokin' on some doob...

That's a good one. Let's stop performing Shakespeare's works, too, too much damn dirty violence!

Actually the cult that made the clone announcement made the exact same announcement 33 years ago, and of course never came out with any proof about that one either.

Obviously written by somebody with little clue about anything. Innacurate statements about the Mac, sweeping statements condemning the entire gaming industry and a poke at XP just because he can't get it to work.

This year's dubious achievement is how this reporter managed to keep his job for another 12 months.

Maybe that cloned human nonsense came about from someone else who had to complete that "hoax" assignment.

Wonder how many of those vapourware games will materialise in the next 12 months. TF2, anyone?
