Nintendo resolution is 256x240 and something like 25 colors. I don't remember if we had 640x480 or 800x600 and probably a 256 color palette. Higher resolution sprites + backgrounds can easily eat up 640k. Yes, we could have done some optimizations. Also, sound that wasn't just some random memory location.

Reverse engineered the Nintendo light gun (with the help of patents, purchased by snail mail, this was 1997). Soldered some wires to the inside of the Nintendo, connected them to the computer parallel port. Two of my friends and I wrote a Duck Hunt type game for DOS, just fitting under 640KB.

Tell them once. That's as good as you can do. I've had my email address compromised from a well known financial institution. Of course the person I spoke to didn't know anything about it or why it was their fault. Two years later they publicly admitted they were hacked.
I find that a lot of leaked addresses are from failed companies, whose websites no longer exist.
There are many websites out there that are compromised. You would be quite surprised. I wish there was an easy way to post these so others could know.

I purchased this book at Borders some years ago. I had to order it, as they didn't have it in stock. The first time the order came in, they gave me "The Anarch Cookbook" Turns out it's not the same thing. It's quite an amusing read. I'm not sure there's actually one piece of useful information in there.

Developer Panel Gives Its Verdict On Sony's PSP Go 55

An anonymous reader writes "A panel of games industry veterans have given their final verdict on Sony's PSP Go. David Perry thinks the handheld is an excellent step in the right direction, though he wants it to include free-to-play games. Andrew Oliver of Blitz Games Studios was also optimistic: 'The iPod has demonstrated that, given a nice small device and a good interface and easy buying process, people are happy to download content. I think this will work and move gamers to accepting legal digital downloads, which is the way we want the market to go.' In total, a panel of eight developers discussed four key issues surrounding the handheld, including whether or not they will develop for it."
