Hey Everyone,

I'd ordered a PS2 to Xbox controller adaptor but it didn't 
arrive in time for GDC (sigh...). Anyone have one of these 
(Search for Magic Box if you don't see the product):


If so, can you bring it? And tell me if you can because I 
need to know whether or not I'm hauling this xbox tomorrow 
on the plane with me! :)

these are mediocre times and people are 
losing hope. it's hard for many people 
to believe that there are extraordinary 
things inside themselves, as well as 
others. i hope you can keep an open
