Q3A Requiem Release

There's a new release of Q3A Requiem over on the ReQ3A page. Included is a whole slew of features from the original QW Requiem mod, including the freezegun, holograms, and the jump boots. Coolness-I'll have to pull this down later :-)

Your Next Operating System

If you've been living in a cyber-cave for the last 5 years and don't know what the heck this Linux stuff is about, check out this article about Linux in today's Washington Post. It's a pretty good intro, though it does seem pretty pro-Linux. Not that that's a bad thing.

Linux has come a long way during the 4 years I've been using it. I just got around to installing SuSE 6.3, which I won at a conference in May. The "everything" install put 7 gigs of software on my drive. It installed software for just about any purpose you can imagine. Then I discovered that it had clobbered one of the other partitions on the same drive--a Windows partition which came before it in the partition table, but existed at the end of the disk. Now it's listed as a FAT32 drive, but seems to point to the Linux partition. Go figure THAT one out. Oh well. I only lost a few games. . .

Not much news today, so I'm attempting to download the Half-Life patch, which the auto-updater said I didn't need (I currently have

The Eric Idle show was absolutely hilarious last night, even for someone like me who has heard all the songs and skits a million times over. It was a special treat afterwards to get his autograph and say a few words to the man who has brought so much silliness to my life.


I'm going to be offline a good portion of the weekend, so hopefully A.T. or J.T.Q. will keep everyone in the loop. I'll try to update if anything major comes up, but don't bet on it :-)
