Learn vi the Somewhat Less Painful Way

If you do anything in Linux, you will need to be accustomed with text editors. The editor of choice amongst 1337 Linux haX0rs is vi. What it lacks in WYSIWYG features, it makes up in unfriendliness. Once you master the beast, though, it can be a powerful ally. Check this tutorial to find out how. Thanks Linux Today.

And yes, I use vi. J.t.Qbe threatened to install AOL 5.0 on my Win98 installation if I didn't.

UT Bonus Pack Update

Voodoo Extreme pointed me to this post on the GT Forums from CliffyB regarding the status of the Unreal Tournament bonus pack.
The only bugs that remain now are the ones that are related to testing between UT versions. For instance, a person with the bonus pack connecting to a version 400 server having issues, or a person without the bonus pack running version 400 connecting to a 405 server that's running the pack.

This would have gone a lot quicker if we just had maps and did not have new models and the cool Relics. It'll be worth it, though!

Charles Schulz, Dead at 77

I know this isn't game-related, but it is more than a little ironic that Peanuts creator, Charles Schulz, passed away yesterday, one day before his final strip was to appear in papers. The comic pages will never be the same. Rest in peace.

Mozilla = Netscape 6

According to this News.Com article Netscape will launch their Mozilla-based browser this spring dubbed Netscape Communicator 6. Apparently they decided it was so late so they might as well skip a number (or the CNet editors didn't catch the typo). This is good, and expected, news for people (like me) who hate having Internet Exploder cause their systems to lock up. Once it is out, I will definitely be running Netscape 6 or its Mozilla equivalent. Which reminds me, Mozilla M14 should be out soon which is supposed to be the beta release (M13 is alpha). Thanks Slashdot.

id Chat Logs

I'm sure that, like me, you can't get enough Quake 3 news. So make sure to check out the logs from some IRC chats with id's own David "Zoid" Kirsch and Robert "Clever Nickname Pending" Duffy at PlanetQuake.

Just Like Old Times?

Last night, THoP's own SarahConnor set up a Shogo server and I played for a bit against one of the oldest of old-schoolers, Kain [SS]. My tired state, combined with profoundly rusty Shogo skills, made easy pickings for him. It still was fun and brought back memories.
