Overlord II Xbox 360 Demo Launches on Xbox Live
Prepare to take control of a Yeti-hunting, seal-clubbing, wolf-riding team of Minions and create chaos, as Codemasters today announced that the Overlord® II playable demo is now available from Xbox LIVE® Marketplace for the Xbox® 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft® [UK: http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-GB/ga...-d802434D0809].
Ensuring that all future megalomaniacs will be able to take the Minion horde for a test drive ahead the full game’s launch on June 26th†, playable demos for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and PC versions are scheduled to follow in the next week. Gamers can also preview the game’s tyrannical treats in the ‘10 Reasons Why it’s Cool to be Evil’ video, now playing at www.OverlordGame.com
In the Overlord II demo, players step into the big spiky boots of a new Overlord whose sights are firmly set on becoming the king of chaos, the bringer of evil and the master of Minions. As the demo opens the Overlord, aided and abetted by a team of brown fighter Minions, emerges from his underground lair into the ice caves only to discover a Yeti frozen in a block of ice. The Minions can, in their inimitably violent way, ‘defrost’ him and then give chase as he knuckles out into the snowy wastes of the Hunting Grounds, near the town of Nordberg.
Then it’s time to put the Minions to work, harvesting valuable life-force from the indigenous fauna. Minions will happily lock onto anything in the vicinity – including fluffy seal pups (‘Well,’ argue the Minions, ‘the smelly furballs are eating all the lovely fishies’). There are also Nordburgian Hunters and hippy, peace-loving elves to contend with but, as ever, the Minions aren’t fussy who they attack for their master.
To speed their progress, Minions can befriend a pack of wolves and ride them through the snowy landscape like a Minion Cavalry. The wolf-mounted Minion is an altogether tougher force and more deadly – wolves have their own attack moves and will knock enemies off their feet through sheer force, biting and goring opponents into submission.
Discover why being evil has never been so much fun with the Overlord II playable demo, now available from Xbox LIVE® Marketplace [http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-GB/ga...-d802434D0809]. For all the latest on Overlord II, including the new gameplay video, send your Minions to www.OverlordGame.com.

Been toying with the thought of how to arrange the small things involved with have a quad booting OS system.

Being as I don't know of an email reader that will allow u to have a centralized email storage area on a partition that all the OS can access and use the same email tool to access stuff - is it practical to just keep your "delete emails from the server after fetching" to a good number of days, and just use whatever email client u like in each of the OS ?

Similarly, kinda, web-browsing - would it be possible to have a shared Favorites area and have the browsers on each OS to access the same thing ?

I Hunta x
for the bookmarks you could use firefox and get the addon Xmarks, used to be called foxmarks, https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2410 petty good adon, uploads to a remote serv that you make a username and pass for, any machine you log onto and the FF on it has xmarks you just sign in and its syncs all the bookmarks, saved me so much time since ive started using it

I use Outlook on my dual xp pro 32 and win 7 64 [rc7100] setup.

I exported the personal folders .pst file to a partition/folder both o/s' can see/read, then used tools/options/mail setup/data files to point to that file and then set it as the default folder.

I'm looking into the favorites in ie8. There is a registry setting you can change but I haven't found out how to get it to stick on rebooting.

I think Thunderbird can do something similar too

I've used this and it works for me now.

Create a folder called ‘OS Shared’ on your common partition and copy your current favorites into it from your profile on the C:\ drive for the OS that has your optimal favorites list.

Use ‘regedit’ and navigate to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

Find the registry key called Favorites set to %userprofile%\favorites.
Point your registry key to the new location.

Yeah, goal was to be able to use something to ubuntu and osx too. Thing I'm settling on as an opinion is that it's better to keep a longer deletion period from ur isp server and use the regular email readers for each one.
