Gone all this week, the 26th through the 29th. Be back late Friday evening. Probably be checking email, but maybe not often.

First amusing anecdote story from the trip: As we motorcycled through Fairplay, the town that the TV show South Park is mostly based on, we decided to stop for lunch. As we putted through the streets, I saw a guy and his parents out walking. Blonde kid, skinny. Limping. Had a brace on one arm. Get closer... man this poor guy looks like he was born with Down Syndrome or something.

That was when it hit me. I'm in South Park. I've just seen a retarded blonde kid.

It was all I could do to prevent myself from leaning over and shouting "TIMMAH!!" at the top of my lungs.

Yes, I am going straight to hell...

  Subject:   Lumines sales jump 5900% on PSP firmware crack news.
  Tags:  digg, duh

You may have already heard about the latest PSP exploit discovered within the classic puzzler Lumines, availing owners of any variety of PSP - all the way up to its current firmware, 3.50 - the opportunity to run homebrew, install custom firmware, and generally monkey up Sony's plans to get you to play PSP games on the system over, say, 14-year-old SNES games. Can't stop 'em, Sony - this is what people want. People want their hardware unlocked, they want emulation of everything up to PSX, and they don't want you steppin' on their toes over it.


Sony, in typical fasion, is not learning from their mistakes. Their response to this all-hardware versions, all-firmware versions crack? They're going to make a whole new hardware rev of the PSP! Which, of course, will inevitably be broken. Did I mention it's fugly as hell, too?
