Is this the shape of things to come?
Wester, you do not own the Half-Life Portal. I did not register the domain in my name instead of yours. You weren't even around when the Half-Life Portal started up, it was Mark (Deefer6) and myself who started it.
Stop living in a fantasy land. The only websites you've managed to create from scratch are things like this, and your Digital Merlin site which I see you have just removed, and that Pet Rescue site, which had all it's tables ripped from my sites (just like you rip so much other stuff) and had your bright pink and orange colour scheme.
Well it's £209.99 in the UK, very cheap for a next-generation console and a controller, the full pack at £279.99 isn't too bad either.
However making the hard drive non-standard was a very unwise discussion in my opinion and leaves the door open to Sony to include one as standard and gives them ammunition in the fight.
But at least in the financial conditions they're in they can't compete on price.
At £209.99 the Xbox 360 will dominate the last quarter.
There's lots of rumours going around about me growing fat on the huge eight-digit profits I'm rolling in from my gaming websites, this is far from the case, however I would like to grow fat on a huge paycheck.

The godfather of modern 3D gaming speaks out about development on the Xbox 360 and the PS3 as well as the tribulations of tomorrow's developers.
Carmack's platform of choice for console development is the Xbox 360, and he explained why ... the Xbox 360 was designed to have a very thin API layer. In Carmack's words, he can "basically talk directly to the hardware ... doing exactly what I want."
Carmack heaped praise on the decisions that Microsoft has made with the Xbox 360. "It's the best development environment I've seen on a console," he says. Microsoft has taken a very developer-centric approach, creating a system that's both powerful but easy to code for. This is in contrast to Nintendo, Sony, and (formerly) Sega, who generally focused on the hardware.
Well spotted loads of Perseids this year, pretty clear, no Moon, too much light pollution (town of 36000 people) but averaging 40 per hour. This is based on observations between 11:30 (BST) 00:50 with two sets of eyes looking east.
Spotted a very weird object, dark-orangy colour about -1 mag appeared in Cassiopeia and travelled through Pegasus all the way to the horizon in about 5-8 seconds. The distance it travelled instantly pops into my mind as a satellite, but doing it that fast and at around 00:30 when I very much doubt the Sun is illuminating any objects in that low of an orbit. Persieds are typically green in colour, the ones I saw lasting say 10° at the most and leaving trails. So not sure exactly what it is.
Also think I saw a tumbling satellite, was blinking on and off every few seconds, this was around 11:50 traveling south to north.
I also believe I saw M31 the Andromeda galaxy, which is the first time I've seen it with just my eyes - although just barely with light pollution making it a hmm am I seeing it or not moment. Not bad going for my eyes to see 2.2 - 2.9 million light years with all this light being sent up into the sky. Just think, even though it's that far away it's about 12 times the size of a full moon in the sky. You can actually see it in the above photo too - it's the star with a slight smudge around it near to where the meteor begins.
