VNV Nation - Joy

So why do I love when I still feel pain?
When does it end, when is my work done?
Why am I lone and why do I feel
that I carry a sword through a battle field?
So why do I love when I still feel pain?
When does it end, when is my work done?
Why do I fight and why do I feel
that I carry a sword, that I carry a sword?

Comments

I just noticed comments were disabled for non blogspot menbers. Now it's available to everyone. I hope this was the reason of no comments , or is it that nobody reads me ;)

Pay to beta test.

What's the deal with all game houses partnering with fileplanet to deliver beta to fileplanet subscriber's only ? $15.95 for 3 months ... That is a lot , almost all the patchs , demos and other stuff at fileplanet you can find for free elsewhere or wait in their queue line , so the only advantage in my eyes is to beta test things like WOW and Tribes : Vengeance .

A.I. and Games

Anyone noticed that every game release they claim improved Artificial Inteligence ? But in the end , it's actualy dumber !
OMG , we still have a lot work to do in games A.I.

Atom x Rss x Etc ...

I Just found out that not all readers support atom feeds , some only support Rss and other only god know what they support. So if you have one of those , Dont worry. I found a service called FeedBurner that they provide free feeds conversion for for readers that dont support other format , here what they say on their homepage "SmartFeed™ is an intelligent, subscriber-aware FeedBurner service that enables you to reach the widest possible audience. Today, SmartFeed converts Atom feeds to RSS on-the-fly for readers that do not support Atom. Soon, SmartFeed will be getting even smarter!"

Syndication

I talked to Robert Scoble over MSN and told him about my blog *shy*, he asked me : "Where is the feed"
Oh yes ... The feed , how could I also forgot about that. I'm starting to believe I'm dumber then I look. Oh well , I now have an Atom Feed just check the link out. ATOM FEED

Google me

I have 5 gmail invitations left , if you want one , just comment here and I will think about it ;)

Improving readability

After watching Bill Hill talking over at Channel 9 about fonts and such , I decided to enable Clear type which I had long forgotten existed. And WOW , big difference fellows. Could be placebo but it indeed looks better , and they say you should have best result with one of those fancy LCD screens , so go ahead and enable/tweak you Clear Type exclusive for Windows XP

Channel 9

Oh my god , how could I forgot to mention Channel 9 too ?
Its a website from 5 guys at Microsoft who want a new level of communication betweem Microsoft and developers. What ? Well ... they post nice videos of what going on at Micrososft .

Awesome Blog

Wanna check some cool blog ? check out Robert Scoble blog , he works at Microsoft as an evangelist on the Windows team. It became my past time to read his blog and everything else he posts.
Is it bad being obsessed for a guy ? Rofl
I want to be an evangelist at Microsoft ... What do I need to do ? That would be awesome.
