I would like to recommend google video for the GDC 2005 videos.  I think that it runs better and loads a little faster.

True, it loads and runs better because it's lower res.  Definitly worth noting to the (sad) dial up users that we'll have.

A warm welcome, like being the first one into the pool, then peeing in it.

LOOOL, my exams are so tiring it took me around 12 seconds to get the joke :|
A mod could actually sticky it and then we can post the link to it when people ask stuff answered by these links :)

Wish granted, it has been stickied. Please post useful information here and not alot of useless chatter. If you want new people to find information, don't make them wade through 20 pages of posts that aren't relevant.

One more thing, please avoid e-mailing Will Wright any of your questions.  Odds are: 1) He is too busy to reply, 2) He can’t give out information that is either unknown or too important or 3) Someone in the forums already knows the answer.

Be friendly and have fun :D

This is nice and all but the exact same thread was just stickied to the top of the forum.
Check out my (Thurlin's) creatures, building, and vehicles.  You won't be disappointed.
