I was searching around for a vBulletin alternative and found this site that is dedicated to open source alternatives to popular propriety software. I’ll chec them out more thoroghly soon, but Im pretty rushed this morning (its arfternnon already)…
Aside from the above, there is ofcourseForge sourceForge; but I shall mention them another day.
Sony are alway innovative, check this story on the new 250gig ps3 slim:
Due to my love of computer games I decided I would start off with a list of a few open source FPS games for you to get into, there are thousands of games projects on sourceforge alone that this list is just a quick sample of what is out there, but I will be adding more as time progresses.

I will expand this list when I have some more time, but for now that shuld keep you from getting board.
The Cartenz Interactive logo; Where to start… well its a “C” and an “i” united in both negative and positive space… I wont paste anything out of the corporate style guide–as Im still working on it but I think the logo looks pretty shmick.
I started to do the tracing of the roughs in illustrator, but due to the problems saving .ai files I ended up exporting it as an .swf and finishing it off in flash–which makes sence since its for a flash development outfit.
I normaly make thumbnails by running a batch in photoshop but due to not having a photoshop licence for this laptop, and the continuing problems with the old workstation I decided to try Easy Thumbnails, by Fooks. I have uses Thumbs Plus many many years ago but didnt really like it, I just dont want to have to re-size hunderds of images one by one.
maybe I should just learn how to run batches in GIMP
EDIT: I have been using EasyThumbs for about a month now and Its awsome. So much time I have saved, and all those actions for photoshop I dont have to record. Its also nice and lightweight so it doesnt hog resourses on the notebook.
as somone who enjoys playing actionscript, I thought id look into building one of those shittty facebook games–Im addicted to Mafia Wars!. But I wasnt goig to go in this alone, and knew I needed a trace artist id im going to have to learn how to develop a game from scratch. I emailed one of my facebook friends who I had worked with doing Aerosol art back in the late 90’s andthen singed up to facebook developers… the bastard had alrady signed up to that app…
and his game I dea is better than mine!
so pissed off I grabbed the tablet, and dropped this:
this is not graff… not in any sence of the word
I played 2 different charichters for over 300 hours each on Oblivion for PC, so I know I got my moneys worth. I saw a second hand copy for the PS3, and I had to give it a go–I just wish I could import my killer PC save game.
I going a Kajik this time. Just jumping around and annoying people (tiggers can bounce!). I havnt done ant quests yet, just running around throu aylid ruins…
I was playing it for a while the other pay and I thought–“Man, this game is so much like Fallout, no more like… oh wait.”
this game is so awsome, im trying to play it whilst writing this post!. I dont care how bad a movie it was, buy this game.
it must be said again:
Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena
