never cease to amaze
me. Due to a bug in the 007
Agent Under Fire save game, a hacker claims to be able to run unsigned code
on an Xbox, without a mod chip, using a buffer overflow method! Verification
at this point seems to be sketchy, but a few of the forums and websites
are already verifying it. I bet Microsoft's
lawyers were not happy being woken up so early this morning. Let's hope this
is for real, and not an early April Fool's Day gag. A little dose of
Linux this morning, anyone?
Let me bring this to your attention.
I love hearing about weird pirate stuff. I'd like to hear about more current
consoles pirate crap too. Let
As far as next week's show is concerned, I believe we're going to save the day.
"The show must go on" and all that. In fact, based on the material I already
have, it might not suck. :) I only really need to be away for one day, and if
we do the show before I take off I could have it up a day or two later. I'd
say 'keep your fingers crossed', but I know you're using them to play games
(0215) I knew something bad was going to happen. It was all too easy editing
the show today, and sure enough, it got corrupted. I was using the latest beta
of Audacity (1.3.1), and the tail end (last 15 minutes or so) of the show disappeared.
I'll get on this soon. Look for it sometime today.
(1310) Ok, let's try this again. I uploaded the new show and it appears to
Episode 05 is up. While you're
downloading it, let me take this time to apologize for not bringing a lot of
material to the table for the show today. Next show we should have much better
coverage - as in actual information and topics. Tonights show was a little rough
around the edges and a little more freeform. Nevertheless, we had a good time
recording it, and we hope you enjoy listening.
On to the scary topic of next week. Wulf will be in China for THE WHOLE MONTH
of April. Hooks is moving about 30-40 miles from here, and I have been planning
a trip to the Chico area to visit my dad.
Next week seems unlikely for a show. HOWEVER, Hooks thinks he will be
around, and Hunter isn't going anywhere. If we time it right, we could do a
show before I leave. If not, I'll try to work on something to listen
to. I just don't know what yet.
New show should be up late tomorrow night. I hope our listener (that's singular
on purpose) enjoys. It's next week I'm worried about. Stay tuned, we'll probably
mention on tomorrow's show what's up.
In my online misadventures today I ran across this
test. What Video Game System Are You? Apparently I'm an NEC
Turbo Grafx-16. I loved that system.
Before I head out to work tonight, I want to say hi to Mark (who pimps IBM
Linux wares), whom I met last night at work. He gave up going to a party
in his hometown to drive five hours to get here, to stay in a (corporate owned?)
condo, and to spend the day skiing. Instead, he was locked out of his place,
had to stay at a crappy hotel, eat their shitty hotel cafe food, and pay way
too much for his room. I don't think he had the energy to ski today. Hopefully
he's back home now enjoying Morrowind
or Dungeon Siege. I rarely
run into cool people while at work. It refreshing to meet someone who's clued
in. Maybe it's the thin air up here.
As much as I hate IGN you would think I would
have heard of Phuck IGN before. They
seem to have a good thing going over there.
How did manage to miss out on such big news? Slackware
9.0! Of course, www.slackware.com doesn't have the front page updated yet,
but ftp.slackware.com and #slackware (irc.freenode.net and irc.oftc.net) think
differently. Want the
best list of mirrors around? Thanks alphageek!
I pulled myself together and got the show up. Lets
hope I don't die at work tonight.
The fourth episode has been recorded - don't wet yourself yet, I got really
ill after the show, and couldn't manage to get it fit or human consumption.
Ode Rainwalker is finally on the
show, but we misjudged the power of Wulf's speakerphone, and there are occasionally
a lot of popping and other bad-for-your-speakers sounds when Ode speaks. Hopefully
tomorrow I'll have the energy to remedy this as best I can. I think we just
need to run the show through an anti-suck filter.
totally fucking kicks ass. Some of these (free!) games here show more creativity
than the last few efforts from the big names. You have to check these out.
Also, go grab yourself a slice of CyberSlackers.
A great comic updated five days a week. Let's hope they can keep up the good
No, I haven't started Xenosaga yet. I had to get some sleep yesterday, and
today I've been occupied with working on my resume (I hate my job) and dicking
around the internet. It's been a long time since I have just sat down with my
favourite beverage and surfed blindly. You wouldn't believe some of the shit
you can find.
As you know (had you listened to the 3rd episode)I'm having a hell of a time
with Suikoden III. I've since wiped Sarah off the face of the planet, but now
I'm stuck with some kind of huge crystal looking dragon that has the True Runes
floating around it. If it wasn't for that damn True Water I'd beat it's ass.
LATER : Well at long last I was able to beat it! Thank god. All it took was
a few more levels and a little bit of luck. Now I get to dive into Xenosaga.
So don't expect to hear from me for awhile.
Get yourself a little action with the latest show.
God knows your not getting any anywhere else!
