I think there is still a good selection of old Glitches worth posting, and those will go online eventually. Also, the Maximum Tech print mag includes Glitch (new Glitch) on the back page!

Video Loca is a fully owned subsidiary of Apple Computers. LOL! That's funny.

I wrote the Glitch column for some five or six years. I can't remember exactly when I canceled it. It was right around when I stopped being E-i-C and became editorial director. But I do remember the reason: It was getting way too hard to develop and execute good ideas. There's nothing worse than failed comedy (it's arguably worse than no comedy at all), and I felt that if the designers and I couldn't keep standards high, it was best to move on. At any rate, I think there is still a good selection of old Glitches worth posting, and those will go online eventually. Also, the Maximum Tech print mag includes Glitch (new Glitch) on the back page! Because MT is currently a quarterly magazine, we have enough time to execute Glitch to a higher standard. Anyhow, thanks for your glitchy support!

Lol these are awesome! "BITCHIN FAST 3D 2000!"! the sad thing is that they make it all badass and shit, but it only has 256mb onboard, haha.

Back when that was printed the fastest 3D video cards only had a maximum of say 8 to 16Mb of Ram. So 256 was a lot and also consider that most computers back then were swinging 32MB to 128MB of system Ram and now you can see why 256 was a bad ass idea.
