New cool stuff from MAKE

MAKE magazine has had a number of items recently that I wanted to point out, so I thought I'd combine them all into one entry...

Free software for hosting your own Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (or MMORPG, as the kids say). The whole thing's run off PHP and XHTML, and gives you such options as live chat, a map editor, loot system and more. Coming soon - "Poetry Slam: The Role Playing Game!" (original entry)

New Live 5 software could revolutionize the act of mash-ups. New program will apparently accept your MP3s, automatically tempo-match files and slice up beats for your future manipulation. Hmm, hmm, hmm. (original entry)

Your own digital camera for 20, really! Instructions for hacking into the "one-use digital cameras" the CVS chain of convenience stores sell. (original entry)

Thanks, MAKE!
