Brian called me the other day to let me know he arrived safe and sound in Colorado, and that his gear survived as well. Phew!
One thing I didn't mention before was that when we helped him move, it was a stressing mind maneuver -- he had X amount of stuff to fit in Y cubic feet of space, and we had to think and plan carefully to get it all into the UHaul he rented. This isn't news to anyone who's moved, of course. But have you ever thought if fitting stuff X into space Y would make a decent game? How could it be made fun and challenging without becoming tedious, frustrating, and boring like the real thing? Just a thought...
I just got back from Brian's apartment, and he's all packed up and ready to go. What, we didn't tell you? Brian is moving to Colorado, far from Chicago which is where we've both known each other for over 15 years. He'll be without email, phone, etc. for a while as he gets set up, so if there's anything urgent that needs to be taken care of, email [email protected] and I'll look at it.
Don't think that this is going to affect Moby -- far from it. MobyGames will continue to grow and evolve, as we are both just as dedicated as we were two years ago. So wish him luck!
Noticed anything different? We've completed our move to new servers and much higher bandwidth potential, so you should be noticing quite snappy performance out of ol' Moby here. I certainly have: Performance is way up in all areas of navigation. If you've got a fast machine and DSL or a cable modem, it's just like sitting at MobyGames' console.

It's true: I've gone over to the dark side. I've temporarily set aside my oldskool gaming boxes to build MadFast, my 1GHz Athelon Thunderbird gaming machine. While my GeForce II GTS hasn't arrived yet, my venerable old TNT is chugging along inside this box, doing its best to keep up with the firehose of data the Thunderbird is shoving down its throat. Oh, and 256 MB of 133MHz CAS2 RAM doesn't hurt either.
That's my excuse why approvals have been nearly dead for the last week, and I'm sticking to it! But what you didn't know is that my previous machine of 3.5 years (a Pentium Pro) had developed Microsoft Cancer(tm) and had slowed/bugged to the point of complete non-functionality (unless you consider locking up every 12 minutes functional). So blame that if you have to, or Microsoft. Just don't blame me. :-)
