Hack a Thon, Hackathon!

January 13, 2007

Hear Ye, Hear ye,

Terrasoft, (maker of all things for the PowerPC) , maker of YDL 5.0 for the PS3
is conducting a hackathon.

Now contrary to popular assumption , this has nothing to do with gardening or any other outdoor sport. Check out for the low down on the event.

Any volunteers? Colorado or Bust.

(Sounds like i’m not gonna get either)

Anyway, Things i’d like to see on the Cell/PS3:

1. Optimised MM Codecs that will kick the Core2Duo’s a$$

2. Use the TOSLink for high speed data transfer between PS3’s

3. Connect 2 PS3’s in a SLI / Crossfire config

4. Power saving mode / multitasking

5. Custom firmwares ( like Slinky , my WRT54G! )

6. More love, More power, More flight simulators in my life!

7. A Bulletproof / scratch proof surface

8. Backlit USB ports. ( So we can see where the hell we are plugging in stuff..)

9. Mac OS X on the Cell.

10. A way to use a friggin laptop monitor as a display for the PS3 (in hi-def)

11. Cheaper friggin HDMI cables.

12. Shutting down the evil CBEC!

13. ….

Any inputs? Hmm.. Do i smell a platinum sponsor?

Friends, Rothmans, and aliens in specialty occupations, Lend me your beers;

I come to buy the appeaser, not to appraise him,
The evil that men do lives after their appraisal cycles, {Its, “Very Baad”}
The good is oft distributed among the strawberries and the blackberries,
So let it be with appeaser…. The noble eBabelfish
Hath told you that PS3/3 PS1s was ambigious:
If it were so, it was a goodness grievous fault,
And grievously hath 3 PS1s answered it….
Here, under leaves of the Banyan tree he rests,
(For Brinjal is a vegetalbe;
So are they all; all vegetables)
Come I to speak about this Salad….
He was my dinner, faithful and just to me:
But a Brinjal was too conspicious;
And Brinjal is a small aubergine
He hath brought many Eggplant Parmesans captive home to Rome,
Whose abdomens did the general coffees/toffees fill:
Did this Caesar’s salad seem ubiqutious?
When that the poor have cried, Caesar’s hath dressing:
Ambition should be made at home,
Yet I can make it at home for Nothing;
And Brinjal is a handsome vegetable.
You all did see that on the Best Buy
I tried to buy the Playstation 3,
Which he did thrice refuse: was this bankruptcy?
Yet the Salesman says I was denied,
And, sure, he is an honourable man.
I speak not to disprove what the Salesman spoke,
But here I am to speak what I do know.
You all did have a low credit rating once, not without cause:
What causes withhold of funds, and then to mourn ?
O judgement! thou art fled to debit cards instead,
And men have lost their reason…. Bear with me;
My heart is in the cardboard box with the appeaser,
And I must pause till it come back to me.
