Links

ahh, it’s nice and sunny out. it’s a great day for some links, especially since i got hit by a car yesterday! i’ve had plenty of time to think of some links since laying on my couch all day in pain!

anyone know how to hack pain? how about neosporin? anyone?

i know some of you still have your psone lcd laying around. put it to good use. [joachim]
again, more xbox live for the poor man. [greg]

ahh yes. in the wee hours of the night, i was watching the matrix: reloaded. wasn’t that highway chase so cool? especially since they built 2 miles of highway from scratch? well here it is on google maps. very interesting. looks like they took down the sound barriers too.

internet explorer flaws?! who would imagine.
what a rediculous ipod. though i guess it was only a matter of time…

Skype is offering you US$9 Million!

    You got hit by a car whilst being hungover from your birthday?? Man, that’s harsh!!

    I’ve got one of those psOne screens lying around – it and another one are due to go into my mate’s car.

    PS Apparently you can only drive them properly with an ATI video card for some reason. Don’t quite know why, something about the timings needed or something.

    it’s ridiculous, not rediculous.

    ye gods what an ugly install on that psone screen, such nasty cutting. They should get some sandpaper and matching paint before even trying to do that. Maybe even some bondo.

    Matrix: Reloaded car secene set? Where? That is a picture of an airforce base with some runways, I see no ramps or lanes or anything for that matter. I know it was filled there as i read an article on it but i dont see the lanes. Maybe i’m just not looking hard enough but if someone has some explination i would gladly hear it.

  6. Jessevd says:

    dude its the thin black lanes at the top of the base, the turn-offs are the ramps

  7. freakshow says:

    im sorry…but that playstaion thing is like atleast a year or 2 old. and this site doesnt even give good directions on how to do it like the original did

  8. Hal Hockersmith says:

    Oh, yea, duh! Zoomed in and didn’t realize that the runways were that wide. But didn’t they have an overpass in the movie?

    wow… way to write even after a car wreck, if i would have gotten run over by a car, i wouldn’t have posted to my site…
    cool thing with the psone. i have one of them, but I also have an old sony viao pcg505fx. the motherboard is so old, and it is literally duct-taped together. the lcd is fine though (one dead pixel) anyone know how to wire that thing up to my computer? i have an ati 9600xt…

    the car chase scenes were filmed on specially made 2+ miles of roadway built in Australia. Australia is far away from the Alameda Naval Station.

    “the car chase scenes were filmed on specially made 2+ miles of roadway built in Australia. Australia is far away from the Alameda Naval Station.”

    Not quite:
    from: http://www.answers.com/topic/the-matrix-reloaded

    “The Matrix Reloaded was largely filmed at Fox Studios Australia in Sydney, Australia. The climactic freeway chase scene was filmed at the decommissioned Naval Air Station Alameda in Alameda, California. Producers constructed a 1.5-mile freeway on the old runways just for the movie. Portions of the chase were also filmed in Oakland, California, and the tunnel shown briefly is the Webster Tube connecting Oakland and Alameda.”

    Bryan, it’ll be hard work trying to get that screen working through a VGA/DVI cable – most laptop screens use a completely different pinout than everyone else and you need to have an LCD driver board. Some people have tried it before but usually only have some very limited success – if that. :(

    Search the net for info on it and you’ll see what I mean.

    That’s horrible that you got hit by a car. Those are the reasons I wish I had a paintball gun for the bastards that can’t drive. Possibly a very high decible horn, a series of them rather, under the hood. PPL really need to get the phone off their face and their head out of the ass. Anyway, the origional reason for this post, that psone lcd. Correct me if I’m wrong, but the resolution being 640×480 would make an alright diy projector. These are a couple pics that some guy took of his I found on some boards.
