First player on the xbox is the last quadrant on the controler

Place de la république, Lille
When you call your product 360. When you have a circle on you controller with lights. When every quadrant of the circle is a user.

What quadrant of this 360 circle will be the first user? The quadrant of 0-90 degrees, right?

No, not for Microsoft. Somehow it made sence to have the first player have the last quadrant (240-360 degrees) . Weird.


Keep playing!

Tri iPhone pong

What do you get when three nerds meet together? Or how many nerds does it take to play pong? on Drupal

Via a direct message on twitter, I got the news that switched to a new site today using ... Drupal. Jumbo might not be a world famous brand, but it is a very old (board) game manufacturer, founded in 1853 in the Netherlands. It is a nice looking site, colorful, a bit 2.0-ish but with a stylefull more timeless look. It is not finished content wise yet I think, there are some missing pages. And while using heavily the i18n possibilities of Drupal, it is still based on D5, not on D6, see their changelog. I fully understand the D5 choice, I think that it will take more then 1/2 a year before corporate sites will be build on D6.

Since this year I make money selling and building Drupal sites and the good news is that Drupal is gaining ground very very fast in the Netherlands. And a site like really helps to sell it to other corporate prospects.

Call of Duty 4 for mac!

As a new Mac zealot and long time fan of the Call of Duty series, it is for me great news that Aspyr will be bringing COD4 to the mac! See (after age verification?) the news:

Aspyr Media, Inc. announced today they will publish Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare for Mac, a gripping modern-day action-thriller that deploys players into heart-stopping battles across the world’s most treacherous hotspots. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare delivers unprecedented high-definition graphics, piercing 5.1 surround sound and a dynamic community-oriented multiplayer experience. Developed by Infinity Ward and licensed by Activision, the game is expected to be available for Mac in May 2008.

I just have to wait a couple of more months and watch lots of video:
