NeoOffice

Posted by Mark

Since our agency is not allowed to have pirated software and since we recently cleaned up and deleted our pirated software, the whole creativity department was left without a copy of Microsoft Office. So, I have taken it upon myself to hook everyone up with NeoOffice. NeoOffice is based on OpenOffice, which is both a multi-platform and multi-lingual office suite and an open-source project. Compatible with all other major office suites, the product is free to download, use, and distribute. This means this free software will allow us to open and save word documents without having to pay a gazillion dollars in licensing fees. My department aren’t heavy Office users anyway so this will be more then enough. [Link]

Meet the World

Posted by Mark

The magazine Grande Reportagem in Lisbon, Portugal, is running a sobering ad campaign that adds a color-coded legend to the flags of various countries to comment on the cultural and social conditions there. The mastermind behind the effort is a 25-year-old Brazilian graphic designer named Icaro Doria. “We started to research relevant, global and current facts and thus came up with the idea to put new meanings to the colors of the flags,” Doria tells BrazilianArtists.net. “We used real data taken from the Web sites of Amnesty International and the UNO.” The tagline is, “Meet the world.” The campaign, via Foote Cone & Belding Portugal, won a gold Lion at Cannes.

Review: El Charrito Grande

Posted by Mark

el charrito

I found this meal in the freezer at Sultan Center, it looked very appetizing and filling so I got it. The microwavable meal contains 2 beef enchiladas in chili sauce with meat, 2 cheese enchiladas in chili con queso, beans, spanish rice and salsa. Sounds yummy right?

When I took the meal out of the box it looked completely different then from the picture on the box, I tell you, these food stylists are miracle workers. The cooking instructions were easy and within a few minutes in the microwave the meal was ready.

el charrito

At first glance the food looked a bit.. off (to put it nicely). I swear I was afraid to eat it, it just looked terrible. But, for review purposes I had to eat it and it wasn’t very practical, there was no way I could hold up the enchiladas without being drenched in chili sauce and what I did manage to eat turned out to be tasteless and bland. I would definitely not have it again, it wasn’t very satisfying and and it just looked terrible. It wasn’t cheap either, I believe it costed KD1.850 so the final score will have to be a 1 out of 5.

Duke Nukem 3D for MAC OS X

Posted by Mark

duke 3d mac

This is fucking amazing, didn’t think there was a OS 9 version yet alone an OS X version. This file will install Duke Nukem for you, if you have the original PC CD it will install the full version, if you don’t have the CD it will install the shareware version. Have fun. [Link]

Update: Also check out [this screenshot]. Some guys were working on a Duke3D Half-Life 2 mod before they were shut down. The project was looking pretty cool.

My New Addiction

Posted by Mark

bugles

I don’t what started it but I can’t seem to stop it. I am now up to 2 packs a day which is a lot more then I ever used to have. It’s very strange, once you start you can’t stop, it’s an addiction and I can’t stop, I don’t want to stop. I usually hate chips because they are all greasy and stuff but Bugles is a very different story. It tastes incredible, and once you have the first bite you can’t stop until the pack is finished. I tend to have 2 packs right after each other and would love to have 2 more when I am done with those but I hold my self back. Bugles Original Flavor is just the fucking best! [Link]
