I'm certainly not anti-anyone: Race, Religion, sexual orientation, I quite honestly could not careless what people believe in or do in their spare time. I ultimately believe people should be allowed to be happy, and as long as it doesn't harm anyone, who cares?

It should be remembered that this is a two way street.

IMHO, there are two types of people on the planet. Ass-holes and None-ass-holes. I don't like ass-holes. Being an Ass-Hole or not, transcends race, cast, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, or indeed Apple Computer ownership.

Now, what makes me personally happy is a complete and utter lack of reverence. Irreverence has a long history in England and of the English people; ask the Pope for details. It is therefore part of my culture, and my basic human right to take the pi*s out of whatever and whomever I choose.

I believe I am no one special, and my words are insignificant. I also believe all men are equal. Your beliefs, possessions or attitudes should not make anyone person more important or less important than another. However, a person can be wrong.

Therefore it is also my basic human right and privilege to make fun of anyone who thinks they will live forever, after they die, in an unproven, undisclosed, celestial, potentially mythical location, with a scientifically questionable and unproven super-being, if they remember to dress up like a Ninja every day.

I am sorry, but we are incapable of doing that. Once a thread's derailed, it's gone for good.

*edit: Disregard this. Thought I wrote a witty yet funny joke, but it ended up being pretty shoddy. I should read what I write before posting...

Guys, the article I mentioned at the beginning of this topic is now finally out. It covers the origin of the 3DO back to Trip's beginnings to its untimely end as a hardware platform.

You can view it here (its 36 pages long) :

http://www.sanqualis.com/spark3flash.htm (start from page 33 to page 69)

Sorry It's all in french, but I will be releasing an english version sometimes later this year or early 2011. That version may include new details as well. It's always work in progress.

If any of you can read french, let me know what you think.
If not, please be patient !
