MacGamer X: A Grab Bag of Tips
"Today were going to do things a little bit differently then we have in the past. Instead of picking one topic, Ive got a veritable grab-bag of tidbits and items to pick from today. None of these really made a whole article by themselves, but all together I thought they might make a pretty good article. So lets get started with our first item here. I was browsing around the net a week or so ago and I found a small rave of a utility that Id never even heard of before..."

Anything Goes

The Final Word
You know you're a geek when you've gone to see Lord of the Rings multiple times. Well, today will be my third and final time. I figure I'd go before my wife gives birth and the movie is removed from theaters.

Last week I picked up Jedi Knight 2 for the PC and have been playing it off and on (in between Warcraft III multiplaye beta). I'm still plugging away. The game is pretty hard and overall I'm not that impressed. But from what I've heard, it gets way better. We'll see.

And finally...we've been getting a lot of good feedback about "In Other News". People seem to be enjoying it. But I'm a bit pressed for time, so if there is anyone interested in helping me out, please send me an email! Have a good weekend. — Tuncer
