If you used to love playing the old Indiana Jones and Monkey Island style games (I used to the love playing Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis on my Amiga despite being 11 disks!), you'll love this new game from a team of enthusiasts. Indiana Jones and the Fountain of Youth retains the same look as Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis as well as the gameplay and the same characters. The game will be free but is not available yet. However, there is a playable demo available.
The picture above shows surgeon, Dr Samuel Weinstein, donating his rare B-negative blood mid-operation so that it can be transfused into the boy he is operating on during a mercy mission in El Salvador for the charity Heart Care International.
After eating a Pop Tart and drinking some water he continued the operation.
Not only does he do heroic things such as this, he also gives up his holiday time so that he can go on charity trips.

Update: Welcome Prison Break fans. If you are looking for some more information about the second season there's not much information out there. A blog on MySpace has posted that the second season will commence filming in Dallas on June 9th.
Prison Break is probably the only US TV show that I have resisted downloading and stuck to watching it on UK TV. For some reason I wanted to stick to the UK schedule and have been diligent enough not to watch episodes from the Internet or read up about it.
Every other US show I've liked I've downloaded, so that by the time the episodes reach our shores I know exactly what's happened. I suppose I could have down exactly the same thing as every other show and still had the same suspense watching them but Monday's were always boring, so having Prison Break to watch made it worthwhile resisting downloading it.
I knew that a second season was in the pipeline and according to Gossip or Truth, filming starts on June 15th but I have no idea what it's going to be about. I think there are two episodes to go in the UK and the escape is just about to start. I have no idea whether they escape or not or whether the next season is based inside or outside the prison.
Those who have seen it had better not spoil it for me by revealing the end ;o)
Update: Season 2 airs on August 21st in the US.
Go and see me and other geeks getting interviewed at the Windows Live Session 2 that I attended last month. Romain was crafty, he told me that if I did an interview it would be sent to me so that I could choose whether I wanted to post it or not and then he goes and mixes them all up! It's still good though and is well produced.
Note: The video is almost 100MB.
A cocktail has been launched in Croatia that can only be mixed by a barman freefalling from 10,000ft.
The Wings of Zadar cocktail, based on the local Maraschino liqueur, is poured upside down so that the drink flies upwards into the mixer, and then shaken as the barman performs a series of somersaults.
The drink is chilled by the freezing air rushing over the shaker - and then served on landing to the customer.
I was going to post pictures of this big cat a few weeks back but didn't bother. I came across a load more images yesterday and decided to post it this time. This big cat (not sure of the species) seems to get along with the other cat but needs to be fed more than just Whiskas. The pictures show him chewing on a fish and a chicken. It also likes taking baths with its owner
According to this report, the 'Ultimate' version of the next Microsoft Office suite will cost a whopping $679! Coupled together with Vista Ultimate and you're probably looking at $1,000! That's a lot of money.
I'm glad that I've got the opportunity to get a free version (probably not the Ultimate version) of Office 2007 thanks the the Small Business Accounting beta program.
Darren Straight interviews Phil Holden from the Windows Live team.
Darren is the guy I met in London when I went to the last Windows Live session. He only discovered that he was doing the interview the night before so had to quickly prepare for it. What's worse is that he had never done a video interview before. I think he did he good job.
I'm not looking forward to seeing my interview.
A converted 747 cargo plane drops 205,000 gallons of water, while flying 180 mph at an altitude of 500 feet in a demonstration at Tallahassee Regional Airport. The plane flies higher and faster than conventional fire fighting planes -- and delivers the water volume of seven conventional planes. [via]
C|Net have launched a new image hosting application that's likely to compete with the long-standing PhotoBucket and my image hoster of choice, ImageShack.
AllYouCanUpload differs from other image hosters in that there are no advertisements, no limit on the the size of image that you can upload, no automatic resizing of images and best of all, there are no bandwidth limits. This is probably the killer feature as it was common for at least ImageShack to remove images that we sucking down a lot of bandwidth.
The service links in with WebShots that allows users to store their images permanently for a fee.
TechCrunch has more info.
