Looks like I've got some intense client work to handle today, therefore your Bites experience will be all the more shabby. What an excellent opportunity to review the last few weeks, and brush up on all the Internet ephemera you've so badly been missing in your life.

Liza Fromer, the host of a local morning show, had a lemur unexcpectedly jump onto her face this morning, live on TV. I actually knew Liza wayyy back in the day, and I dont remember her having lemur troubles before. Poor girl.

  New Rat Boy Games!  
 
 
Posted 2002-10-28 by Tony Walsh
 
 
     
 
Alrighty, I got busy on Friday and cranked out two new Rat games. Space station racing: Jetboarder! Tetris clone: Brickyard. Hey, if anyone has some Flash game source code lying around, send it to me so I can do a quick and dirty reskin job. I'm no programmer, but I bastardize just fine :)

  He is Just a Rat

I've been tweaking the Rat Boy site, gearing up for the upcoming weekly strips, and have added a nifty Flash game entitled Rat Boy vs. The Vampires! Which works suspiciously like Pac Man. There are ten unique levels, which took me at least 20 minutes to get through. There's a large screen version also available for the high-res crowd.

  New @ Downwithup

Local yokels Downwithup have added another addition to their archives... On the Road: "One on our right, one on our left, and another closing in fast from behind. Holding our own at 120 kmph, we're suddenly frozen in midair as the trucks roar past, their enormous wheels howling, their towed trailers moaning in the blast."

For those who haven't visited Clickable Culture in a while might be pleased to know the micro-portal now features more than one page and also sports a slightly improved look (you might not notice that last part). I'm looking for some folks to spotlight in my "music" section, preferrably webcasters or content that gets updated at least several times a year.

  Transforming robots, next-gen consoles  
 
 
Posted 2002-10-16 by Tony Walsh
 
 
     
 
I played a few rounds of the new Robotech:Battlecry game last night with Jos. The game is fairly good-- much better in single-player (story) than 2-player (vs.)-- but has a lot of minor design flaws that point to a rush job. The original voice actors from the animated series make a repeat performace for the game, which isn't necessarily a good thing...
Next on the transforming robot lineup, and from the same decade, the Transformers appear to be coming to a modern console near you.

I'll be out of town until Tuesday morning. Would-be burglars know this: my cat eats people.

  No American refugees.  
 
 
Posted 2002-10-08 by Tony Walsh
 
 
     
 
I don't have a link for this one yet, but it seems Canada's immigration laws are being changed so that we will no longer be taking in refugees crossing overland from the US into Canada-- the idea being that there isn't any reason why someone would be a refugee from the US. With no offense intended to my American friends, there is always a *possibility* that one could claim refugee status from the USA, and it just seems strange to preclude this possibility. There have been incidents of US citizens persecuted by their government, and now Canada won't be an escape for them. Of course, most enemies of the US government are enemies of the Canadian government as well, so maybe this whole thing is moot...
