But now

Kids today review games of yesterday, including such cutting edge rad stuff like Pong, Super Mario Bros., and even ET. What will our kids think of our UT2003s and Half-Lifes?

In the D drive currently: Homeworld2 and Max Payne 2.

On the bookshelf: Just finished the fantastic Foundation trilogy by Isaac Asimov. He has a way of making a novel suspenseful, even if you already know the outcome; in this case, that the Foundation will persevere through every Seldon Crisis. No, the fun is reading the logical arguments and discovering how it’s done, sans cheap potboiler gimmicks. In this way, Asimov’s books are timeless, even though they are anachronistic with their male-dominated societies, “atomic” power, and cigar smoking.
