Home Builders in CT / Microsoft Openly Attacks Unix / Cheesy Super Heroes are Fun / Gunnm Petitions are Fun
Lots of topics today. First up, I have just revamped the web site of David Stoner & Co. LLC, a home building company in Connecticut. Go check them out, if you're thinking of buying a home in CT (the land where people consider 40 degrees a cold winter day - sounds to me like record highs).
Next up, Microsoft is once again trying to openly bash the Unix/Linux world. Before Linux was being called un-American (which is absurd since Linux is based on the idea of "Of the people, for the people, by the people", and Microsoft is just the opposite), now they're calling Unix expensive. FYI: Unix is free, and there are tons of free online support groups to help with any technical problems. Sun Microsystems responded by saying they still don't see Microsoft as a threat to them, and "As for Unix being 'inflexible,' 'expensive,' and 'complex,' we feel those are terms much better suited to the closed and proprietary world of Windows." I found out about this at Slashdot.
There's a new computer game out called Freedom Force, which is absolutely great. It's a super-hero game making fun of super hero stereo types. Not only is the humor fantastic, but the gameplay is better than I had dared to hope. Along with great graphics, sounds, music, and some of the best multiplayer I've played in a long time, this is a must for gamers and comic book nerds alike (me being both of those).
For anyone who is a fan of Gunnm (better known in America as Battle Angel Alita), I urge you to lend your signature to the Gunnm: Last Order petition. There is finally a sequel to Gunnm, and there are so far no plans to have it translated in to English. The petition is for the people of Viz (the company who would be doing the translation) to get to work. :) If you're interested, I'm signature number 1063.
