The other day I wrote about Burnout. Well there’s a cool kind-of related video up on the new Microsoft XNA web site called “Crash.” You should check it out.

    Oddly enough, I did exactly that in the past with a Silicon Graphics and a network made of 200 crossed mass-springs. Really, the mathematics behind it is a no brainer (one-step Euler integration), and is highly parallelizable.

    The funny thing is that the texture itself is contributing a lot to the realistic nature of the simulation.

    I wonder how many people would buy a game where the only thing you did was ram really expensive cars into walls and other obstacles. It sure looks like fun! 🙂

    Just wanted to let you know that your presentation on VSTO and VSTO2 were awesome!

    It was obviously a developer doing the talking, but the level of content, detail, and reasoning was very much appreciated.

    Looking forward to your security talk on Office!

    Actually it was Eric doing the talks… I’ll pass on your kind words to him. But yes, Eric is an awesome dude:

    It is of course understandable that you got mixed up — we are the "Evil Security Twins" after all:

    Yes – you are correct. I have both of your blogs’ feeds sinking in the same folder in SharpReader (Security) and I clicked on the wrong post 🙂

    My apologies – to both of you 😛

    Just know that there are only 3 feeds in my security folder, including MHoward – so you’re both in my exclusive security club [grin]

    Boy, it sure must annoy you when I talk about the Pet Shop Boys then 😉

    You should try reading Dana Epp as well.

    My favorite video games are the ones where you blow stuff up.
