With any new, popular, funky web-based service, there’s always going to be a digital divide. You know; those who have
firstname.lastname@example.org as opposed to
yournameX46@hotmail.com; six-digit ICQ numbers as opposed to nine-digit; Flickr sign-in as opposed to Yahoo! sign-in.
And now, it’s happening again.
@googlemail.com. Not the end of the world, I guess, but
gmail is so much more succinct (and trips off the fingers easier).
This time, for once, I’ve got the mark of the early adopter.

Tom Coates leaves the BBC for Yahoo. Good for him; looks like an excellent move and a good home.

Webpage detailing ports of Kenta Cho’s shmups (shootemups) to OSX. Noiz2sa and Rrootage had been available for a while, but this ports all of them – Torus Trooper and Tumiki Fighters are good, but Gunboat is probably the standout of those three previously unavailable ones. They work pretty well, and they’re colossal fun. Cho’s shmup games have been available for a while on PC; it’s great to see them all ported to OSX now.
