Shadow of the Eternals seems to be cooking nicely as Denis Dyack, one of the dark lords of great video games, has something very tasty in the works. See more videos here.
If you ever played the masterpeice Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem for the Nintendo GameCube, or love exploring as multiple characters across millennia in a dark and secret world that’s sometimes hard to tell dreams from reality, then the spiritual successor to Eternal Darkness promises to be everything and more.
Well, I’m stilling using Adobe CS4 because it’s been rock-solid for me and the last few upgrades didn’t seem to justify the high upgrade price and relearning of Adobe’s ever-changing interface. Still, if Adobe Illustrator CC (as in creative cloud) is any indicator, it looks like a worthy upgrade. Of course, it also spells the doom of boxed versions. I’ll wait to hear the full reviews by real users to see if it stacks up to the hype.
With strong enhancements to both creative tools and productivity features, Adobe Illustrator CC (Creative Cloud) will have artists and designers alike looking forward to the upgrade.
I call forth the Hammer of Hack-a-Doom to smite thee…
Bummer! My primary website and various sub-domain sites were hacked. Hosting company locked me down and will keep it that way until my sites are proven clean of malicious code. Time to check all my scripts, plug-ins, etc. and re-upload clean versions. There goes hours of my life I can’t get back.
For that, I call forth the Hammer of Hack-a-Doom to smite the shriveled penises of my hacker assailants and their oily patheticness. :P
Riding can be a great activity but it is not for everybody. Some people really ought to just say, no thanks, and forget motorcycling altogether.
Motorcycle.com has a great article – using Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) input – on the all important question of whether people who think they want a motorcycle are really suited to riding one. Not everyone is.
As a long-time rider, all I can say is learning to ride a motorcycle is one thing; learning how to think like a motorcyclist is another. Case in point: a lot of people may have done a little dirt riding, or even kind of learned how to ride on a friend’s bike, but that WON’T cut it riding on the street by itself. Cars, road hazards, weather, health, etc. all require you to learn how to handle yourself in a vehicle that is imminently more fun than a car, but far less forgiving if you make an error.
I took the basic MSF course years ago and I actively hone my skills while riding year-round. I go in the dirt every so often (even on a non-dirt bike) to remind myself how to handle the bike when the tires are sliding around and how to brake when I don’t have good traction. When I rain ride I call upon a totally different attitude and set of skills than when in the dry. I love to lean, and lean far, so trust me when I say that takes practice and good familiarity with you bike and your ability. On a motorcycle you NEVER stop learning and you can never let your guard down — it’s NOT a minivan with automatic transmission, crash protection, traction control, ABS and a plethora of safety features to save the inattentive driver from themselves.
