This is really cool technology, using image switching in a SUPER cool way to do some really neat things with a "surface" like display. Hopefully we will see this kind of innovation and technology in use pretty soon.

Atmosphir: Free cross platform game.

About Atmosphir Read a review at Linux Haxor

I've long been a fan of cross platform games. Gaming was for several years the device keeping me latched to Windows. "But how can I play my games if I'm an Uber Linux dude?!?!" I would ask. Then I realized that I hardly ever play games anyway.

Every now and then I do like to loose myself in a game, and so I have begun to embrace the console mode of gaming. That works ok, but SOME games simply play better on a PC. Enter the cross platform gaming nitch.

The Pangea of gaming, where it doesn't matter what OS you run, it only matters if you desire to play a game or not. Across the board we are not there yet, but inroads are being made.

Atmosphir is one such inroad, and I heartily applaud the developers for making the game:
  • Free!

  • Cross Platform

I have not yet played, but rest assured I will check this out.

She sticks the landing!

I'm putting it out there now, Palin is going to biff big time in the VP debates tonight. She is going to flounder and fail in many big ways and I am going to enjoy every minute of it.

A highlight reel of her recent awesomeness to fail.

Considering not voting?

Well don't not vote.
