I agree. I drive a car that's going to be 20 years old next year and it still runs good. Parts aren't at the point where it's getting impossible to find, but it will be someday. Places like autozone and advance seem to stock the third party stuff which is okay, but usually they're made to shitty specs. You kind of get what you pay for I guess.

3D gaming in the 90's was fun. I still play my Virtual Boy on a lazy afternoon and sometimes the Sega Master System with 3D Glasses as well. As much heat as the virtual boy got (and admittedly only have 3 or 4 titles worth revisiting) after I've been playing for about 10 minutes and my eyes learn to refocus properly the games become extremely enjoyable. I've never played first person shooters with 3D shutter glasses, but I'm sure someone has found a way to build a circuit out of SMS 3D Glasses and adapt it to the computer.

Submission + - George Lucas loses court appeal over Star Wars (timesonline.co.uk)

DarthVain writes: I remember it was reported by Slashdot sometime ago that Lucas sued his old Prop guy (Andrew Ainsworth) for trying to sell Replica Star Wars costumes. The Prop guy lost that battle it seems in the US back in 2006, but they haven't been able to get the British courts to enforce it. It seems now the British court has ruled to "Sod Off", and "that the helmet and armor of the Stormtrooper costumes had a "utilitarian," rather than an artistic, purpose" and as such is apparently exempt.

I am not sure if anyone in the court room actually saw Star Wars, but I think I know some Ewoks that might argue how "Utilitarian" those suits of armor actual were...
