There hasn't been too many DS games lately that have caught my eye, but Contra 4 looks like a must-get :) I remember back in the day when little B and I had mastered Contra on our NES to the point where we didn't even have to use the world's most popular code to beat the game. With little B manning the spread gun and me manning the laser, those aliens had no chance.
Some of the weapon descriptions on the website are sort of amusing too...
Soldiers, especially Contra soldiers, have a lot on their mind. For those days when you can't be bothered by concepts like "aiming," the hunter will seek out hostiles on its own so you can enjoy the finer things in life - like jumping over bottomless pits and avoiding certain death.

While I was reading through my usual list of tech blogs and sites, I saw a headline talking about the new rankings for the top 500 supercomputers in the world. I remembered a conversation with a friend who works at OSC saying that the new Opteron supercomputer they had just got up and running was suppose to be somewhere in that list, so I took a look around and found it to be at number 76 (and I can say I've used 0.77% of those processors in my simulation :P). It has a ways to go to catch up to the DOE as the peak performance on OSC's supercomputer is only 3% of the peak performance of the DOE's supercomputer. Although the DOE computer probably has its own manmade blizzard to keep all those processors cool.

For those of you who didn't hear about it or missed it, you can watch the recent episode of South Park here where they sort of poked fun at Guitar Hero. It wasn't as epic as the World of Warcraft episode, but it was still pretty funny nonetheless. At least Stan and Kyle were playing the good GH songs :P
