Miscellaneous News
Kojotes accident (misc)

I’ve alread written something on friday, but rather in a hurry than giving details.

I love to ride my bike, but sometimes things happen, which makes it less enjoyable. A car collided with my bike. As I was pretty much under shock the first minutes (it could have been much worse) things started to hurt and I’ve been to hospital already twice now. They gave me a checkup and found multiple contusions in different areas of my body.

Everything hurts a lot now and I “enjoy” taking two different types of painkillers at the moment after each few hours.

Actually I can not sit too much and also staying in horizontal position isn’t comfortable.

The good part is… the doctor said I should be back to normal in up to three weeks. Well let’s see how long painkillers will be my friend… btw they don’t work proper anyway… just minor reducing the pain, but hey… better than nothing I guess.

I try to keep up with the news tonight, but no promise on that.

Where hacking meets demoscene – abusing mass market hardware for the greater good (misc)

One of the seminars at Breakpoint 2008 held the title “Where hacking meets demoscene – abusing mass market hardware for the greater good”, which has been presented by tmbinc – who is in particular known for beeing a part of Team Wiizers who released the Twillight Hack. It’s pretty interesting and shouldn’t be missed.

Quote from http://breakpoint.untergrund.net/seminars.php#s3

tmbinc is probably more known for his work on gaming console platforms and other interesting hardware than for his demoscene coding. So far he coded on the Gamecube, the Xbox 360 and the Wii, always with the intention to make the available hardware useful for own projects, without being an official developer.

Gaming console hardware offers a great value for a great price, but are unfortunately usually locked down to only execute authentic code. This seminar will focus on homebrew code on the Nintendo Wii and the Microsoft Xbox 360. After giving a short overview over the two quite different architectures, methods to load own, unsigned code to retail machines will be explained and demonstrated. Finally, a “hello world” for both machines will be discussed, to give potentially interested demo coders a start.

Celeth is responsible for the PDRoms code and database and was putting a lot of time and effort into it (and still does). Without him PDRoms would have probably never come back after it’s >6 month break, so hail him and send him a telephatic happy birthday :)

In behalf of all PDRoms staff and users: HAPPY BIRTHDAY CELETH!
