A next metal gear is ...

I’m experiencing an ‘outside the box’ moment. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if Kojima intends this image to be shuffled around a bit.

ADD: Try putting the ‘power sign’ on the top and use the cross as the body. Looks a tiny bit like the cyborg ninja, no?

Repairing broken USB partition tables

Fyrwerks Update

This project is still very much in early development. Many alterations and additions have been integrated into the final plans; accommodating these will push back a release until early 2009.

More information will be provided once I’ve modified the framework core to adopt some of the most important changes. The Fyrwerks development site will be uploaded when I get around to finishing it (I am hoping to use the first developmental release to power it!).
