PlayStation 3 compatible

First of all, shouts to my friends who notched-up this milestone in my website stats:

Site stats track PS3 browser visit to Final MooCow

And they've told me that my site works just fine in the PS3 browser :)

Anyway, apologies for the lack of updates, but I've been kinda busy lately. I recently got a new computer, and have spent the better part of a fortnight getting it up to speed. It isn't helped by the fact that I've now got a dual-boot setup, with Windows XP and openSUSE 10.2 (a form of Linux for those who don't know), so I've been getting 2 operating systems back up to speed. The main reason for adding a bit of Linux to my setup, is so that I can develop Red Horizon for Linux-based OS's as well.

I've also spent a bit of time making my Windows XP look a lot like Vista. Things I've read and heard have turned me away from Microsoft's latest Windows offering, so I'll hold-off moving to Vista for a while (that, and many of my development tools don't work in Vista either). But after having been stuck with the blue XP look for so long, I thought it was about time to revitalize what my eyes have been accustomed to. If I were to select an appropriate simile: it's like adding speed-flames to your operating system.

It was a bit easier to pull-off a whole new look in openSUSE, just by using Beryl, which gives me an OpenGL-accelerated desktop, and a whole lot of cool animations to make my windows fade, beam-up, burn-up, alter transparency, etc. One of the more stand-out features of Beryl is the ability to represent multiple desktops as 4 sides of a rotatable 3D cube. Functional? Time will tell. Hella cool? Oh yes.
