Grid computing vs P2P, corba and others...
I really really want X10 in my house so I can heatup the living from the comfort of my bed (which is equiped with a laptop of course!) like //mikew has for a year or more in his loft.
This will probably be a dream for some time. But nevertheless, some X10 linkdumping so I can pick this up later. Say in a decade or two...//X10 is, it's protocol, a way of using the powergrid in your house as a network layer for giving signals to outlets. And since your PC is on the grid as well, one can use a browser to dimm the light or heatup the oven. Chriet, here I come.
A showdown of //all arcade games (including hardware and console) from 1973 'till 2000. Nice to see from the screenshots how games developed from huge pixels to state of the art 3D stuff.
