..that when you do a google for “Benjamin Hirsch BMW” and the first hit is a link to Speed Ventures Results for an OpenTrack event I did quite some time ago with my old M3. Guess it’s just a testament to some of the things I Love. …hehe, testmament, how’s THAT for religion?!

Half-Life 2 – At last!

November 17th, 2004 No comments

Valve and Vivendi publishing finallly kissed and made up, and at last, I can play Half-Life 2. This game plays a lot like the Original, so, if you liked that game, you’re going to like this one. The textures are very high detail, and most everything in the world is interactive (you can pickup bottles and cans and throw them out your enemies, granted, you’ll die, but hey, it’s part of the fun). I’m only like an hour into it, playing it on the middle difficulty setting to keep myself on my toes. more soon!

LCD’s? Nahh man! nowadays it’s the shallow CRT
Samsung develops 35cm-deep CRT Computer Monitors

Era of the electronic wallet
Scenario: You’re out with eight of your best friends at a local restaraunt. The bill comes, every one reaches for their wallets, including you, only to realize you’re outta cash. Do you take everyone’s money and pay with a credit card? NO :) You pull out your i-mode FeliCa hand-set and finally avoid getting stiffed!
