I got slashdotted! Yay!

I also claim that Slashdot people usually are smelly and eat their
boogers, and have an IQ slightly lower than my daughters pet hamster
(that's "hamster" without a "p", btw, for any slashdot posters out
there. Try to follow me, ok?).

Furthermore, I claim that anybody that hasn't noticed by now that I'm an
opinionated bastard, and that "impolite" is my middle name, is lacking a
few clues.

Finally, it's clear that I'm not only the smartest person around, I'm also
incredibly good-looking, and that my infallible charm is also second only
to my becoming modesty.

So there. Just to clarify.

Matrix Online

Posted by Rachman Chavik on Thu, Apr 28 2005 13:10:18
I found out from Matrix website that they have launched their Matrix Online game. It's Massive Multiplayer Online Game. However, considering the state of internet connectivity and bandwidth quality in Indonesia, I couldn't bring myself to buy it.  It's a pity really, I'd really like to try it out.

It may be MUD on steroids, but it should be interesting and enjoyable to see how the Wachowski brothers design a multiplayer game.
