I found this video a while ago and it fascinated me to see just how easily the human mind can be tricked into believing any situation to be real. Imagine playing a video game, seeing some weird flashes and waking up in an abandoned warehouse fighting the zombies you’ve just seen in the game. From frivolous fun to frantic fear at the drop of a hat. The human psyche is dumber then we think.
Ok , I’m gonna need your help on this one. If you want some free mac applications for christmas : Shoot me an email. Do you remember whole mac-heist stuff that went on last year (where we all pitched in together to lower the price on some killer apps ?) Well this year they are GIVING stuff away. Just enter your Email address and you can receive a free version of Wiretap Pro. If you sign up somebody else .. you get more free stuff. No i’m not the type to enter my friends Email addy’s into some mailinglist so i’m asking you guyz, help me get some free stuff and get some yourself too. Shoot me an email if you want me to sign you up and we will both have some cool stuff for the holidays.

It might be something you can cataloge on the fringes of Blasphemy, but nonetheless its a great application. Perhaps one of THE missing applications when it comes to my Linux installation. How about a way to graphically control your Linux desktop from any pc or mac ? Yes I know i’m giving you old news.
The wondrous application of VNC is already there to provide us with such an exact service. Its a sure fire way to control any Mac Linux and Windows desktop FROM any Mac Linux or Windows Desktop. The only downside is that VNC is, beside from being horribly slow, also terribly insecure (by default). There is of course the ability of securing VNC with Tightvnc or piping the whole sh-bang through an SSH tunnel. But that would be working for technology (instead of the other way around). So thanx to the guys of Freshubuntu I was introduced to OpenNx (and their free cross platform client NXfree) that will tunnel your remote sessions through SSH and scramble them with a 128 bit key. Sales bling here : "
A complete solution for remote access to your Unix workstation. It allows 2 concurrent
users to connect no matter what their location is, and share the desktop. NX Free Edition
is incredibly easy to install and run, leverages the competence and quality of the
company that makes NX and, most importantly, is free forever." I’m going to see if I can do some playing around with this sweet little toy and keep you up to date with the results. But in the meantime, if you want to tinker along .. Try NXfree along with me !

There is a Halo Movie coming out soon, but I managed to stumble ( accidentally) across this little flick that was made for the Discovery Channel. you know I always nag about the fact that games should get better when it comes to gameplay and graphics are secondary.. But if I could play a game like THIS i would happily buy and string together 2 Xboxes to be able to play it.
