With the upcoming release of Tron Legacy I can’t help but play this game. Now if only a 3D version got released and a certain some one would stand inline to get me 3D television on Black Friday. Better yet, code the 3D version WHILE waiting in line for Black Friday sale. Odds are I’ll probably get a leaf blower, ladder or something with lesser or equal buzz killing potential.

Check out my GLTron skills. Make sure to watch it in 480p and take no notice of the number of “Player 1″ crashes in the top left hand corner, that obviously wasn’t me. There also is NO sound, but you can install it, play the soundtrack at the same time and get the same effect. I think the only time I’ve ever been more 1337 was when I hacked that Gibson, but that’s a-whole-nother story. Also take note of the length of this video, a total accident.

Bin and Cue Support for Linux

If you have a bin/cue image that you need to use under Linux you may be in for a surprise. I recently downloaded a copy of a game that I owned but was too scratched to use. The problem was the game came in bin / cue format. To fix this I just used a nifty little program called bchunk and converted it to ISO. It can be found here: http://he.fi/bchunk/

I would really like to find a way to mount bin and cue images under Linux but so far I’m not having any luck. I’m wondering if with some modification the bchunk program could be used with fuse.
