New GLSetup

Wow! Actual news! There is a new version of GLSetup available (, if you care). GLSetup is the handy utility that makes sure that your video card has the latest OpenGL drivers available. There is a note on their website that their bandwidth is really getting eaten up so it may be difficult to download the new version right now. Thanks Blue.

Q3A Models

Okay, for our 3 or 4 readers out there, I have a request:

If you see any tastefully done Quake3: Arena models of "The Crow", "The Master" (of Doctor Who fame), or a GOOD female model out there (my wife is looking for a model/skin to use when playing once I get her machine upgraded) I'd mucho appreciate an email. Thanks to anyone who replies!

A.T. Hun comments: Or the famous QwadHor model . . . :)

Celeron Vs. P3

Thresh's FiringSquad has an article entitled "Pentium 3 vs. Celeron 2" comparing a P3 and Celeron 2 at the same clockspeeds. Interesting read.

History today :-)

History update for today:

Linux UT Patch 413a

Brandon "GreenMarine" Reinhart, the man who has had one nightmare of a weekend, updated the Unreal Technology page with the following blurb:
I had a bad makefile when I built the release version of 413 for Linux, which caused it to build in a null interface for the IP driver. This means you won't be able to run servers or connect to network games with it. You can get a fixed by clicking on that link. Put it in your System directory to fix the problem.

I've also put together a new version of the patch for people who haven't downloaded it yet. This is version 413a:I'm not having a very good weekend and now its pouring over into the week. /me buckles down for a mess of a week.

- GreenMarine
Because of this, I am pleased to announce that the EZ-Net Unreal Tournament server is now back in operation! J and I discovered that the patch solved our problem with the Holstein skin for the Nali WarCow not displaying properly. Things are looking up! Thanks Blue.

Playstation2 Export Controls

The Japanese Government, showing the same calm and rational thinking as displayed in countless Godzilla movies, decided to slap export controls on the Playstation2 on the grounds that someone could use it to build a cruise missile or something. Seriously. Thanks Blue's News.

The Master comments: Oddly enough, the U.S. government recently raised their definition of "supercomputer" high enough to permit export/import of the Playstation 2. Guess the Japanese are still living in the early '80s.

Linux UT 413 Patch Problems

To add UT insult to injury, the Linux Unreal Tournament 413 patch that was released last night seems to make UT incapable of making any network connections. Nice, eh? So for the time being the EZ-Net Unreal Tournament server is down. According to this thread on SourceForge, I'm not alone. It's comforting in that I probably didn't screw anything up. It's NOT comforting because it DID screw up. Yesterday was a bad day to like Unreal Tourney.

More on M$ dvwssr.dll

I pulled this .dll off the NT CD's here at work, and saw the "Netscape Engineers are weenies!!" message in the code. Woo. I'm impressed. Know what's REALLY interesting in this? Those cocky M$ engineers had the balls to put that in their code, while leaving an unchecked buffer that can crash/run arbitrary code on the server. So who's the weenie, Microsoft? Hmmmm?

UT:RA Recalled!

Brandon Reinhart updated the RA homepage indicating he is recalling Unreal Tournament's Rocket Arena mod due to worsening issues with the mod. This is too bad, since it's going to put a crimp on the mod, but stable code is a must :-)

A.T. Hun comments: Grrrrr. Barf. Guess I might as well email about the bot pathing bug I found last night (the first time I played the level, no less). I feel a Hun-Speak rant coming on . . .

The Master comments: Heh-watch it A.T., you rant enough and you might start sounding p155y like me :-)
