    Paul, you're back!  Max, you're well!  Laura I miss you!  Yes, the boys came out to play today, sans adult supervision Smiley

    Thanks for mentioning the security, downloaded it but haven't installed it quite yet.

    The only thing which could've made the episode more fun to watch would've been open beer.  That won't happen, for obvious reasons (we don't want you two to lose your jobs).

    Perhaps all three hosts/co-hosts could do an episode like news cast?  Laura can host, and Max and Paul can have feature stories, or something like that.  Whatcha think?

    We have DX 11 coming, much more exciting than a console Wink Screw the Xbox.

    Windows 7 will be fun. If only Ultimate were not so expensive and in limited quantity. Booting off a VHD would be swwweeeeeeet.

    Jimmy Fallon

    This is Jimmy Fallon, and yes, I do watch Channel 9.

    I am a HUGE (and I'm talking about HUGE) gamer. And for me, C9 is a good place to keep an eye on Project Natal.

    Mr. Max, you want to challenge me in what now? Do you want to use Natal to play a game of chess? No? Do you want to Natal to see which one of us can finger paint the best?

    Let's wait until you're healed up and we can do a real challenge. How much longer before your sprained pinky toe heal? HAHA Smiley


    Being a HUGE celeb does have its privileges. I have  the real low-down on whether or not there's a new Xbox coming out next year. The official word is "no".  That's all I'm allowed to say   Wink

    I am wondering if it really was the actual Jimmy Fallon. but considering that he has showed up in Engadget and the kind of crazy messages he posts in Twitter could be.
