But before I go, I got Shen Mue as a xmas gift. Stayed up til almost 3 am playing, makes me almost want to hassel with dating the Dreamcast to my parents. So far it has my two thumbs up. IGN has a review and there are wallapers over at GameWallpapers.

The New Common Sense Common

The New Common Sense

Common sense is a gift of history, religion, philosophy, literature and more. For example, in the United States, if you take your boat out onto the sea despite a storm warning, we'll send the Coast Guard after you, putting other people's lives at risk. In ancient Greece, you'd be left to your own foolish devices. These two common senses reflect deep understandings of what it is to be human in an inhuman world. Common sense is a a rich gift.

Standard Fare at the Builder.com conference

Next, Dori Smith stood up to read a quote from Adobe's PR department explaining why GoLive cannot create HTML 4.0 compliant Web pages. Adobe's position was that the importance of standards had been greatly exaggerated by a small and vocal minority. The company argument was that because most Web designers create their pages with WYSIWYG tools, and WYSIWYG tools don't support standards, then standards are irrelevant. Smith paused to let the audience ponder this circular logic before saying, simply, "It is very difficult to create standards-compliant Web pages with WYSIWYG tools."

The Adobe PR department logic is astounding.
