Can one of you catch the Nintendo press conference and post a news article on it? I will be on the road and not able to watch it like I did the Sony one today. A nice short article in here and in news on the old site would be nice.
So far the developer studio titles look run of the mill. Unless you make a notable exception for the stunning graphics in the demo of Gran Turismo HD, can you say full rate 1080p graphics in real time? Compared to that most of the other games were slightly upgraded versions of the same old PS2 titles.
EA managed to buy a slot in the show to plug their 200X versions of the cash cow sports games. Yes they now can move with out spinning in circles. But otherwise they are just another Madden.
Both Final Fantasy XIII, and Metal Gear Solid 4 looked visually stunning, but once again it looked like rendered non-interactive video clips on display.
Since this got buried in a blog and did not pop up front I thought I would repeat it here...
THE UPGRADE to Drupal 4.7.0 is COMPLETED!
So have at it, tear into things and lets see what we want to do next.
BTW I will be off to Houston to the Johnson Space Center for the rest of the week, so you will have to go bug stomping without me.
There is free live coverage of the E3 keynotes at
The Sony keynote will be at 7PM est. I will be watching and have messenger on line to hold a comment session as we watch.
Could someone take a look at the permissions and access stuff, it seems to have not come across during the upgrade. Thanks.
I will apparently need to take down the site, or lock the content posting when I update the site. I seem to have lost cpanel access so I am not able to make the SQL backup. So I am on hold until I can get back into cpanel. I have mailed Matt about it, since he did overall password changes I am guessing that it may have been changed by him.
In the meantime I will be doing some reading.
Unfortunately, I don't have any experience and very little knowledge of Acorn Computers, the company responsible for such venerable British machines as the Atom and BBC Micro. Well, perhaps I'll get my chance behind an Acorn after all: The company is rolling out a line of Notebook PC's. There isn't much info yet about these machines, but I suspect the only thing unique about them will be the brand name. I know I'd still like to have a Commodore branded laptop! Link via Engadget.
In an effort to protect us against future hacks, I've done the following: (a) Applied all available patches for e107. We really need to dump this site soon and start using neo. I suggest archiving it and making it available as static HTML pages. This will make security much easier. (b) Put unused stuff in the trash can via cpanel. You guys might look there to make sure there's nothing in the trash that we need to keep. I found something called "shopping cart," "phptest," and "test chat." I can't remember what these are, but I put them in the trash for now. If we need them, I can always restore them. If not, let's delete them. (c) I changed the perms on various folders to restrict other people from mucking with them. Again, I'm not exactly sure how the turks did it, but it seems like they hacked our FTP passwords and replaced the files there. What's weird about this is that anonymous FTP is turned off via cpanel. So, somehow they guessed our passwords.
I am out of town for a few days. I am still working on 4.7 I have a update downloaded, but I am having issues with MySQL access. Anyway, I am out for a couple of days. I will put in 4.7 in a test database then move it over to this site.
I know what you're thinking...How did I possibly live without these babies for so long? Well, the wait is over. Get your Gameboy Color Color Cufflinks from Ahchay's Etsy Shop today. However, I might warn you: These will, in all probability, seriously crimp your suave 007 style. Unfortunately, they aren't playable. Well, perhaps that's not so unfortunate.
