Game Movie Review: Postal
Postal was revered in many countries because of it’s inherent ability to tick off people by going over the line with overly inappropriate ‘jokes’. Of course, our good friend Mr. Uwe Boll thought it a good idea to make a movie based on a game where random killing is built-in. Oddly though, the movie isn’t half bad.

Windows 7

For the last couple weeks I’ve been running the Windows 7 beta and really love it.  The last OS I installed was XP back when that was new so I moved from XP to 7 skipping Vista (not by choice, by happening).  It’s really slick and I love the Aero theme it has.  Now I just need to grab the Windows 7 RC when it comes out publicly in a few weeks (rumor says May 5).

I just finished my talk in TCCC 6 and feel it went relatively well (I'm new at all this speaking).  I'm in D'Arcy's talk right now about Silverlight so won't type too much more.  Thanks to everyone for coming to my presentation.  A lot of you sounded really interested in the basics of XNA, maybe I can get some talks on basic XNA set up sometime.  I should have the presentation materials on my site within the next week!
