Sorry to run you in circles once again, but after a week of uncertainty, it appears the dates have shifted. Kaybee has changed their listing to "Coming Soon" and Amazon has done similarly. Unfortunately this occurs with a certain portion of all Gameboy Advance games, especially ones that don't require a timely launch. In light of this, it looks like we'll probably be pushing back the Launch Party and dal.net move. The European publisher's website, Take2, has changed their listing to May 2003. They may also have a new (or at least little seen) screenshot in their main gallery there.
Mr. Ridge answered one of the more common questions about MyJEMM running on Windows XP.
...it would require completely different code than what MyJEMM uses on Windows 95/98/ME. I don't think it's even possible to extend NTVDM to allow it, it would probably require writting an NTVDM clone from scratch or modifying something like DOSBox to run it.

Digging way back into our archive of poll suggestions, Peter Griffin came up the idea for favorite Wing Commander planet. Where would you like to live?

XBox wins it! If it utilized XBox Live, I'd have to quit my job. The Quine 4000 was Grayson Burrows' PDA.
The Associated Press is reporting a startling revelation from Freddie Prinze Jr..
RADNOR, Pa. (AP) -- Freddie Prinze Jr. says he plans to stop acting eventually to pursue a writing career. "I'm going to stop acting in the next few years because it's just too weird," Prinze says in the April 19 issue of TV Guide. "You have to constantly be willing to live in a scary, emotional place, which is why actors are in therapy all the time." Prinze has acted in such films as "I Know What You Did Last Summer" and "Scooby-Doo" and is now shooting the sequel to the latter opposite wife Sarah Michelle Gellar. But in the future, he plans to turn his efforts to writing and has already written one episode of the TV series "Mutant X" that will air this month. "People don't think I can construct a sentence, let alone write a script," he said.
I guess any future Wing Commander film projects will have to find a new actor, at least eventually.
