Deserves its own thread.
Earth has been ravaged by an alien race seemingly determined to destroy humanity. Seventy years later, Earth is banded together to prevent their own annihilation from a technologically superior alien species. Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the third child of a brilliant family is a quiet but genius boy, whom may become the savior of the human race. He is separated from his beloved sister and his terrifying brother. Brought to a special school, a battle school in deep space. He will be tested and honed into an empathetic killer who begins to despise himself as he learns to fight in hopes of saving Earth.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown Sep 1, 12, 10:47 p.m.
Ive been absolutely engaged about this release
i can remember back to my freshmen year of boarding school (1992); X-COM! it's what got me into gaming. Firaxis (Civilization fame) is making a remake of the classic original (UFO Unknown) and in my mind, if anyone knows real time strategy, it's Firaxis. (altho this is a turn based title) a classic remake that's bound to challenge any arm chair general.

Mozilla and WebKit platform Q. Jan 10, 11, 9:27 a.m.
So i made a text mask with a background image moving behind it . All done in css/webkit. I did this kind of quickly because it was a perfect method and i was excited. (without realizing the Mozilla support issues.)
so my question is three part: Are there alternatives or workarounds to supporting firefox with webkit usage? if no, Can i use one framwork on all browser engines? also an jquery do this, even on mobile devices?
and one last Q, if i use Gecko wont i run into the same problem? but with chrome/safari support?
hope this makes sense.. and Thanks in advance!

in this case. i need to get media usage rights. the image owner wants to see the format.(pdf) client wants to retain control of said media.
