  • photo from xtcian
    "Over the past year, there has been an explosion of stories raising questions about the real environmental cost of hybrids.

    One of the most misleading ones, which has been spread by countless blogs over the past several weeks, and cited without verification by several sources that appear reputable, looks to have originated in a story last November in England's Daily Mail, a right-leaning, British tabloid paper, which bore the gleefully spiteful title 'Toyota factory turns landscape to arid wilderness.'

    Play OLD games on your PSP

    So, you want to get in on the PSP homebrew scene? This ought to get you started.

    First your going to need a way to get files to your PSP, get a nice size memory stick and a card reader from the electronics store or get some online. Sandisk makes a 5 in 1 reader that reads almost every card out there, well, at least five of them. The price of memory sticks have dropped dramatically and a card reader is real cheap. They run you about $20. You'll need it to copy files over to the PSP and a place to store all of your software.

    If you have a mac, or just don't understand filing systems too well, go here.

    My favorite emulator to run is DGen, a Sega Genesis emulator. It's pretty flawless and the speed is spot on. Games like Vectorman and Sonic run without a hitch. Brings back memories of thumb blisters and orange carpet.

    Have fun

If it were placed at the center of our Solar System, it would extend to the orbit of Saturn
