My hard-working Athlon XP 2100+ CPU decided to die on me. Was gonna upgrade to a dual-core but Alex saved me lots of bucks coz i'm now using his retired Sempron. Don't need much CPU power especially since if I'd get more CPU power, that means I can play more games, which in turn means less work :)
No update on the prototype today, however I heard about Microsoft's Flash-killer... Silverlight. Still a long way to kill Flash but it may have potential.
Also I found these tiles at Lost Garden which I will try to temporarily use later on for the prototype.
