Look at it. Just look at it. It's a Mac. At my desk. I know. It's not my fault. At least I've added some custom wallpaper (see below).
For the first time in a while i've written a non web-based program. Admittedly it's a network app but it doesn't use the web in any way:
Announcing Interconnect 4
It's a two player Connect 4 simulator for windows. It uses TCP/IP so works across the Internet as well as your office network. The current version is in english, but I've written it so that it can be translated very easily. It also includes a chat facility so you can talk to your opponent mid-game. As usual, there are a bunch of people to thank for beta-testing: Mark, Sally, Luke and Matt. Thanks people.
Incidently, I have redisigned Matts site for him. Don't rush over there yet though, because he hasn't switched to the new layout yet. Watch this space.
Console market hell is on the horizon as Nintendo as poised to launch their new console, the game cube (quick Apple - sue sue sue). Read about it as it happens here. The first screenshots look impressive, but so did the graphics on the N64 and look what happened to that. Menno (artbeast webmaster) believes it will cause significant discomfort to the PSX2. I disagree, but what do you think? Tell me.
Only a few days left until my departure into the unknown. Recently a plane crashed just out of the airport at Bahraine. That's where our plane is stopping. I'll try my best not to die though.
Has Peter been kidnapped or something? I haven't heard from him for over a week now. Since he's co-creating a new project with me, this isn't a good thing.
Anyway, must get going. Bye.
