Dr. Richard Walker of the University of South Florida College of Medicine, in Tampa, says Brooke's body is not developing as a coordinated unit, but as independent parts that are out of sync.

"She has pajamas and outfits that are 10 or 12 years old," he said.

Submission + - Warsow 0.4 released

After a fairly subjective article proclaimed Warsow the best community-developed open source shooter game, it seems the project might have something to prove. Major additions include a HLTV-like spectator server called WarsowTV, bump-mapping, ingame tutorial demos, new maps, new gamemodes, a new twist on CTF, a MacOSX client, and more friendly movement.
