XBox multiplayer without XBox Live!

[Aquaduct] with XBConnect is one of the cooler apps I've seen in a while. It allows you to use any XBox system link game over the internet by proxying the wide area network. Unfortunately it seems more for the college dorm crowd. I tried to use it to play Halo online the other night and every open game listed in Aquaduct required each XBox playing to have 3 or more people on it. Most of the games would kick single players off.

That was something of a letdown.

Splinter Cell 2 might be a better bet, it's multiplayer is limited to a few people anyway.

Scenes of agony

[Pictures] from last week's race are up.

I'm making some progress figuring out the Polar HRM interface protocol. It would be handy to actually have a Polar HRM that can talk to a computer to work on it, but oh well. So far I haven't seen any real hints on how to grab data directly from the Forerunner, and so far on the Mac nothing works for getting the track data.
