Just another note

So, I know it's been a while, but I was feeling bored today, waiting for the spookiness tonight, so I'm deciding to post now. The first thing I want to talk about is the DSi XL. Yes, Nintendo is a money making machine who is caring less and less about their costumers, but I never bought a DSi, so this might be a good update for me from the lite =D. I don't play the DS much these days, but maybe if I get a flash cart... well, lets just say I love me my classic GBA games, and I don't like carrying around a bunch of cartridges.
Second thing I wanted to talk about is Linux. Recently I have installed Ubuntu with the intent of dual-booting it with Vista... but Vista refuses to boot. So, for the past few weeks I've been stuck with Ubuntu exclusively, but it hasn't been too bad. There's a bunch of games which have Linux versions, like Toribash, World of Goo, Lugaru and Tee Worlds (an online 2D CTF game) as well as many which work inside Wine, such as Knytt, Runman (which you should all get!), and I'm sure there's others which I haven't tested yet. Oh, there's also flash/java games and emulators, which I would only use for the most legal of reasons, of course :). I have really been missing Steam though, I've installed it through Wine, but I don't have enough space on my Ubuntu partition to download TF2 =(.
Anyway, hopefully I'll get Vista up and working soon, or replace it with Windows 7 (which I've heard is "less bad than you expected") in time for the TF2 Halloween special (they have special maps and stuff, and they're selling the game for $2.50!). That's about all I have to say now, I hope this blog isn't totally dead, it should still be manageable as a place for the authors to share ideas with each other. So, I guess from now on I'll be the indie games and Linux guy, oh and maybe I'll throw in some classic games too (ones that were released in America). Sorry for any spelling or grammar errors, I've gotta go now, I hope you guys start posting about some stuff too.
