Free Portal! (well, the first few levels)

If you happen to have an nVidia graphics card (and 2/3rds of people seem to, according to various stats) then you too can download the free Portal: First Slice!

Just go to the link above, it will check your machine to make sure you are running an nVidia card and then you can download and play Portal! (Windows only, I'm afraid).

Really worth a look, a fantasic game! More about it on our next podcast, too!

Damn! 4/5ths of my machines have an ATI. The remaining one has an old (and I mean OLD) nVidia card. I'll check this out but I ain't holding out much hope.

Note to self. Upgrade hardware!!

As a consolation prize to those that can't get the free Portal, here's an attempt by someone to recreate that now infamous Portal song "Still Alive" in Mario Paint (a kiddie music sequencer):

Yoshi notes fixed by request

added extra mushrooms for steadier rhythm




and there was me thinking I was working atthe basic end of the spectrum. Actually, that is quite superb in a horrible, oh god its mario sort of way, LOL
