UTWorld and CliffyB

UTWorld has posted an interview with Epic's Cliff Bleszinski. Thankfully, the questions in this interview are pretty insightful. A good, albeit short, read.

OzUT Interview with Mark Rein

An outfit called OzUT (Australia, Australia, Australia, we love you! Amen.) has posted an interview with Epic's Mark Rein. The interview is in MP3 format, which I painstakingly downloaded. I say "painstakingly" because it was apparently being transferred from Down Under via confused wallabies because it took forever to get here. Once I got it, I discovered that it is almost incomprehensible (too quiet, too much background noise). So I'll just yank the main points off their webpage and assume they were correct :)

Pondering the Imponderable

Well, it's one of those slow days when the most fun thing about being on the Internet is hearing the comforting whir from your hard drives. Just as well, as I have my standard-issue Sunday afternoon headache <pause for sympathy>.

I took a test to see how loony I am. I was very disappointed that I only scored a 63 out of 100 on the loon-o-meter. I did get a whopping 75 out of 100 on the "emotional" looniness chart. Remember, there are some people who, through no fault of their own, are sane. It is up to people like us, who are out of our tiny little minds, to help these unfortunate folks out.

While I'm passing out worthless information, you can check out my stats on the EZ-Net Q3A server and notice that I am the only THoP member in the top 20 (#7 to be exact). Hooray for me!

Daikatana at Best Buy!

Ok, maybe not. According to Stomped, this Sunday's Best Buy flyer will advertise Daikatana on sale for $29. Of course, there's one small problem. Daikatana hasn't gone gold yet, much less been sent for duplication. You'd think the Best Buy execs would know better than to guess when THAT game is going to be released. :)

J.t.Qbe comments: Hey! I just got it on sale for $19.95! Ok, maybe not.

Quake III on a Palm?

OK, maybe not. But some people are trying to port OpenGL to the Palm OS. Now to port an OpenGL version of Doom! Thanks Slashdot.

O'Reilly and Amazon's Bezos

Tim O'Reilly has posted the gist of a conversation he had with Amazon's Jeff Bezos regarding Amazon's recent patent of 1-click shopping. This is a follow-up to his February 29th article on the same subject. It's an interesting read--even if the matter isn't resolved. Personally, I think that if Amazon needs to file patents and sue to maintain a competative edge, they've already lost that edge. Thanks Slashdot.
