Anandtech DDR mobo article

Anandtech has posted a fascinating article on the new DDR memory technology with Athlon processors. Good stuff in here, as usual. Anand is really technical and in-depth in his articles.

id Downtime Rescheduled

id's Christian Antkow updated his .plan with word that the planned downtime for the id master server has been rescheduled. Here's the official word:
Router maintenance will be rescheduled for a future time (probably at some ungodly hour in the morning during the week). It was brought to my attention that a lot of Europeans play league games on Sundays.

Maintenance on our DNS server will go ahead as planned however. DNS will be down between 2pm and 4pm CST on Sunday, Sept. 17th. This should not affect your ability to access the Q3A master.

NFL Week #3 Picks

Before I forget . . . here we go! Here's my picks for this week in the National Football League as I attempt to defend my sterling 20-10 record. Panthers, Bills, Jaguars, Eagles (Packers 0-3? Oof!), Steelers, Chiefs, Rams, Bucs, Broncos, Vikings (Pats 0-3?), Seahawks, Giants, Ravens, Redskins. Game to avoid watching unless it is one of the terms demanded by the people who kidnapped your son: Steelers at Browns. Shudder.

The Master comments: Eeyore's picks: Panthers, Bills, Jaguars, Raiders, Vikings, Saints, Bears, Eagles, Steelers, Chiefs, Rams, Bucs, Dolphins, Redskins.

No Love for Universal

Courtney Love, lead singer for "Hole" and widow of Kurt Cobain, is suing Universal Music Group for her slice of the $100 million windfall they got from their settlement with I'm not a big Hole fan, but this might change my mind :) Of course, she's never going to see a dime of it, because it's all going to UMG's coffers, not to the artists they were ostensibly supporting. Thanks Slashdot.

Counterstrike 7.1 released has released version 7.1 of the Counterstrike mod for Half-Life. What's new, you ask?You can download the 7.1 binaries for both client and server on the downloads page at There are win32 and linux binaries available.

AvantGo Update

AvantGo, the popular PDA utility for viewing web content, updated its software today. To get the upgrade, all you have to do is hotsync. It allows you to set your preferences and add or remove channels right from your PDA. This upgrade is for PalmOS. I'm not sure if the WinCE version got similar treatment. Thanks Visor Central.

The Master and I are still working on some technical details before we unveil The Haus' AvantGo channel to the world. Stay tuned!

FAKK2 SDK Released

Ritual's Mark Dochtermann updated his .plan with word that the SDK for Heavy Metal: FAKK2 has been released. Here's the goods:
Heavy Metal FAKK 2 Tools

We have released the tools and source code for FAKK 2. Grab them from:

The program and level design team is looking forward to your creations!

id Master Server Downtime

id's Christian "Disruptor" Antkow updated his .plan with word of some downtime for the id master server. He even took the opportunity to get in a bad pun. Here's the word:
I'm going to be doing some maintenance work on our internet servers and routers this Sunday, September 17th between the hours of 2pm and 4:30pm CST. Our router should be down for no more than 30 minutes starting around 4:00pm CST. If you have difficulty accessing the Quake III master server, this is why.

DNS will be disrupted during this maintenance period.

Titanium 1.01B Review

Our very own Wraith has written up a review of v1.01B of the Titanium mod for Quake III Arena. Ever since he downloaded it, he can't stop playing it. Check it out! As an added incentive, Wraith is now using the single best scoring system in the history of the known universe.

While you are at it, you can check out the rest of our reviews too.

New Ask Sweeney

VoodooExtreme posted a new edition of their Ask (Epic's Tim) Sweeney column. This time Tim tackles (Ooh! The alliteration!) intentional programming, biological processors, and other things that will make your brain hurt.

Titanium 1.02B for Q3A

Reactive Software has released version 1.02B of their Titanium mod for Quake III Arena. Wraith tuned me into this mod earlier this week. What exactly is it? Think MechWarrior meets Shogo meets Quake III Arena. A little birdie told me that we might just have a review of this mod in the works too . . . Thanks Blue.
