It's apparently quite important, because the gubment is planning to force all broadcasters to change the signal so that every little rabbit-ears TV in the US will stop working. . .unless you buy a convertor-box for approximately 5X the worth of the TV itself.
I've seen HDTV. I see 'em over at Best Buy, inevitably playing some undersea documentary from the Discovery Channel. I can't much tell the difference between 'em and ordinary TV's.
At least when they stopped making leaded gas, there was a compelling reason to do so (i.e. airborne lead is a mite toxic). It wasn't just the car companies lobbying the gubment to make people to replace their old cars with new ones. Also, it only affected cars that were at least ten years out of production. OTOH, I can buy a new rabbit-ears TV today that won't be able to receive a signal in a couple of years.
I have a plan for the games:
1. Finish Shi Sen Daily Puzzle.
2. Make standalone versions of the (now four) existing daily puzzles.
3. Make two more daily puzzles.
4. Make standalone versions of those, for a total of six.
5. Bundle together the six standalone games for a price.
6. Release all six daily puzzles for free on the site, only now with an ad imploring you to spend a couple of bucks on the standalone ones if you wanna play more than once a day.
My Software Review Queue. . .
1. ZBrush (review is basically complete)
2. re-review Project Dogwaffle Professional (now a fancy boxed product)
3. Carrara Studio 5 Pro.
4. N-Sided Quidam (haven't received yet, but is supposed to be released this week)
I also have a few books to review. I finally slogged through the Nth edition of "How To Write Role Playing Games in DirectX", which was rather discouraging, as Premier/Thompson/Course/Cougar/Mellencamp still feels the need to strap a 300 page DirectX tutorial on the front of their books to pad the page-count. I thought they were getting away from that with their "focus on" books, but they then dumped that. Too bad.
