Website Maintenance

This website was recently moved by my hosting company, Dreamhost, from one webserver to another. This, unfortunately, hosed my database driven (and fairly slow) image gallery. However, the images weren't lost, except for names and descriptions of the photos. So, it's back up and running, and has some special functionality implemented. As well, I was spurred to setup a few cron jobs to automate backing up website content, etc.

Metroid Prime 2: Echoes

I've recently had a chance to play a little bit of Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. I remember renting a Nintendo Gamecube back in Dec. 2002 for a weekend to play Metroid Prime non-stop for a holiday weekend. This sequel came out two years later, and I have a chance to play it now (having a Wii, which is backward compatible with the Gamecube). It's been as much fun as the original, and shows the thought and depth that go into some of Nintendo's games. Plus, it's a fun refresher as Metroid Prime 3 for the Wii is coming out soon.
