Neverwinter Nights Goes Gold
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada – June 11, 2002 – Infogrames, Inc. (Nasdaq: IFGM), a leading global publisher of interactive entertainment software, today announced that the long awaited and highly anticipated epic, Neverwinter Nights™, has completed development and will ship to retail stores under the Company’s Atari label before the end of June. The most complete software adaptation of the classic pen-and-paper Dungeons & Dragons® role-playing game ever, Neverwinter Nights is the latest game from BioWare Corp., creators of the 4 million selling Baldur’s Gate series.

Just when I thought I was saved from the MMORPG addiction because I use Linux, this comes along.

(Re)defining the News Aggregator (And Your User Interface While We're At It)
Dave talks about what a news aggregator is.

deus_x is thinking about what an aggregator should be.

I'll take it one step further, I think the entire computer interface should be overhauled to be more aggregator like, events streaming by, hover your mouse for some info, click for even more info. An incoming email slides by, click to read, or just let it go by and in a while your folders with unread mail in them will stream by. A friend just updated their weblog? You'll see the update stream by in your interface. Instant messages slide by, click it to reply. A computer process just started hogging CPU? You'll get an event for that too.

Ok, the two rhymes at the end of that signaled that my brain had overloaded so I'll leave it at that for now. Please, please, please send me your thoughts on this, either email, comment, or AIM (acemcburney).

Day 2 of 30 Days to a More Acessable Weblog
Michael sees the world in shades of grey. This is not a business cliche or a philosophical statement; he really sees the world in shades of grey. He has Achromatopsia, or complete color-blindness. All of his clothes are discretely labeled with letters, R for red, B for blue, DG for dark green, and so forth. His girlfriend has compiled a compatibility matrix that specifies which clothes he is allowed to wear together. He follows these instructions to the letter, so to speak, although he does not understand why they matter.

If you haven't already bookmarked 30 days to a more accessable weblog do so now.
