Scientists at St. Louis University are trying to use enzymes as a catalyst in fuel cells to generate electricity without the storage and safety problems of hydrogen. New Scientist reports in this story that they've done very well using ethanol as the catalyst, going so far as to run their batteries -- which they hope can be used in cell phones, laptop computers, and the like -- on gin and vodka.
No, really. Check it out.

March 22, 2003: Back From GAMA
And at some point we'll post a photo or two. Executive summary: It went very, very well. Kudos to the GAMA show management for bearing up under the load of twice as many retailers as expected, and still hosting a good event. Thanks to the WizKids guys for providing such a great freebie that it (I suspect) was responsible for at least a couple of hundred of those extra bodies. Thanks to both our booth crew (for dealing with such a crowd that at one point the line for our stuff went around the corner and three booths back) and those who stayed behind and put together an emergency shipment of 300 more retailer packets and a like number of Munchkin Monster Manual, Transhuman Space hardbacks, and Valor and Snarl dragons (yes, we were being generous with the freebies, too).
It went well, indeed. Now wait till NEXT year!

March 21, 2003: It's What's Inside That Counts
Hostage takers are pretty quick to ask for a million dollars without considering the practicalities. How much does it weigh? How much space does it take up? Find out How Much Is Inside?
And that's not all. How many ping-pong balls fit into a Chevy Trailblazer? How much blood does the human body hold? And if you never gotten around to squeezing out your toothpaste end-to-end, they've done the hard work for you.

Munchkin Master's Guide
Munchkin. It's not just for players any more.
What can a Munchkin d20 GM do? Whatever he wants. Player annoys you? Kill him. Or change his sex.
Or turn him into a Canada goose. Go all the way and turn him into a dead sex-changed Canada goose. No one can stop
When you're the GM, the rules are only suggestions. So the Munchkin Master's Guide is 48
pages of magic items, NPC classes, and a loaded 100-sided die's worth of dirty tricks . . .
It's GOOD to be the GM.
48 pages, hardcover.

Imperial Lunar Handbook: Volume 1
The Imperial Lunar Handbook provides an insider's look at the vast Lunar Empire. It gives players a look past the facade of evil and decadence and into the brilliance and liberty of the great Empire, and instructs heroes on how to live in it. The Empire is a fusion of many disparate regions, each with its own customs and magic. Over all the Red Moon shines down, and the Son of the Goddess rules.
Volume 1 provides an overview of the Lunar Empire and the religion of the Red Goddess that holds it together. It contains character generation for all of the major Homelands of the Empire, as well as maps and details of two sample organizations, the Seeburn Association and Immanent Action Liberation. Future volumes will concentrate on the most important regions within the Empire, beginning with the Lunar Religion, and later including Dara Happa, Rinliddi, and Carmania.
Inside Horrors of Weird War Two are over 100 new d20 creatures from all over the world, plus a complete adventure.

March 17, 2003: Gone To GAMA
Many of our staff have left for the GAMA Trade Show in Las Vegas. If you are trying to reach Steve, Phil, Michelle, William, Paul, Moe, Gene, or Ross, you might want to consider holding off until next week.

March 15, 2003: Getting Rid Of The F-Word
So the U.S. House of Representatives has formally removed "French fries" from the menu in its cafeteria. Now it's "Freedom fries."
They've been criticized for wasting their time. I beg to disagree. The last thing I read about the House passing was a bill to outlaw all human cloning research. If that's what they do when they are "serious," I would FAR rather they occupy themselves by insulting the French.
Hmm, can I help?
Okay. French bread will now be Bush bread.
French kisses will now be Liberty Lip-Locks.
Plaster of Paris will continue to honor its source, but will now be Plaster of Parasites.
And French blue will now be "Condition: Secretary Ridge Says No Terrorists Under The Bed But Buy Duct Tape Anyway Blue."
Hope that helps, y'all. If you read this into the Congressional Record, be sure to spell my name right.

March 14, 2003: It's Mostly In The Name Of Science
In this country, we're less likely to hide weapons of mass destruction and more inclined to build a website touting the fabulous power we have at our fingertips. Visit Sam Barros' PowerLabs and watch as he bends chemistry to his will and crushes full soda cans with nothing but a semiconductor. Make fun of him at your peril . . . he's also building a rail gun.

The GAMA show - the trade show of the "adventure game" business - is next week in Las Vegas. If you're a retailer, we hope you're planning to attend . . . come see us. If you're anyone else, please cut us a bit of slack next week, because we'll be out of town, with irregular access to the net and a lot on our minds. But it'll be fun. This is our best chance to actually talk to our friends in the industry, because at the big summer conventions, even if everyone is there, the chances are good that you'll never see them for more than four seconds at a time. At GAMA, there's a chance to sit down and talk for, gee, maybe as much as four minutes . . .

Who's next to the moon? Looks like China, according to this story in the New Scientist.
Why are they going? For the mineral wealth, mostly. Just like in Transhuman Space. And for an additional gratuitous plug, remember that the Transhuman Space sourcebook on near-Earth orbit and the moon, Transhuman Space: High Frontier, is due out this summer.

March 2, 2003: NNTP All 'Round
As of last Sunday, all of our zines (JTAS, Pyramid, and d20 Weekly) use NNTP for their message board systems. This is a Good Thing because:
- Readers of any of our zines can use specialized news-reading software (such as trn, Outlook Express, Netscape Communicator, or Free Agent, to name a few) to read the message boards.
- Subscribers to more than one zine can now read all of the message boards in one place.
- Message boards -- including playtest boards -- can be shared between multiple zines. Right now, for example, our Marketplace board is available to subscribers of any of our zines!
- Our zine message board system has been rewritten from the ground up -- it's leaner, faster, and takes full advantage of mod_perl and Mason. And it will now be easier for us to add more new features.
- A bunch of other technical stuff that won't interest most of the users of the zines, but I'm sure happy about them.

Transhuman Space: High Frontier
"One giant leap for mankind . . ."
In the year 2100, Earth-Lunar space is the most densely populated area of the solar system outside Earth itself. Come visit:
- Earth orbit, buzzing with busy factories and bustling spaceports, under the watchful eye of rival orbital weapons platforms. But the biggest danger is not the threat of war but the ravages of 150 years of space junk, moving at 25,000 miles per hour!
- Lagrange 4, where giant cities in space glitter like jewels in the night, presided over by the massive O'Neill colony Islandia.
- Lagrange 5, the ghetto of the solar system, colonized by dreamers, ideologues and undercapitalized entrepreneurs. Sometimes a dream and a prayer aren't enough.
- The Moon. We're back, and this time with bulldozers. Luna is the solar system's industrial park, with Helium-3 mines that feed the fusion reactors on Earth, and more cybershell robots than people. But it's not all machines: the north and south poles are home to the pleasure domes of Moonshadow and thriving transhumanist Luna City. And on Luna's farside, a massive telescope array unravels the mysteries of the cosmos . . .
