I realize this probably is of interest to no one but me, but I was able to successfully hack the Greymatter back end and create a little script that will allow me to dynamically include the templates from Greymatter directly into my other HTML pages (provided, of course, SSI is enabled). Which means it’ll be much easier to create my other pages and give them all a standard look. I added my resume and updated it to be current… looks pretty good. Now I just need to add back in some of the “about” pages and a fix-up of the Gen13 section and I’ll be good to go.
Well, it seems thus far that the move to blogging has been fairly well accepted by the populace. I’m pretty stoked with it myself. Look, ma! I’m updating my site! Regularly!
As far as the major Amazon pimping that’s taking place here… hey, it never hurts to make a little money on the side. Besides, if I’m diligent enough to keep up with it, you may see a link to something cool that you may just “have to have.” I buy everything from Amazon, you may as well give in and do it, too.
That said, not only does the game have addictive play, but also the music kicks a lot of ass. So I went to the local Wherehouse and picked up a copy of the soundtrack. It rocks, but I have to say, I’m a little irritated that it’s not, like, a two-disc set with all the music on it. Further, I particularly wanted to hear the music that plays during the little movie of the “Eddie” character dancing. Unfortunately, it’s not on that CD. I guess I’ll have to do a little research.
I discovered a PS2 mod chip that doesn’t require soldering, but it still requires that I take the machine apart. I’m reluctant to do that, but I’m still considering it since you don’t have to actually permanently modify the PS2 itself.
