NFL Week #17 So Far

I'm on pace to have my best week all year in my NFL picks. I am 12-2, Eeyore is right behind at 11-3. We'll probably keep picking in the playoffs just for giggles.

*Aaack* *Gasp*

That great big gagging sound you just heard was my stinking, worthless, God-forsaken Lions choking their way out of the playoffs. I guess I can chalk it up to a mercy killing since they would have lost in the first round of the playoffs anyway.

New Doom Legacy

Just in time for Christmas, there's a brand-spanking new version of Doom Legacy, the port of id's classic game to 3D technology. I've been using Doom Legacy for a while now and am very pleased with it. Thanks Blue's News.

New GameSpy 2.24

Looks like GameSpy has released version 2.24 of the über-game browser. This one supports Deus Ex, Q3A:TA, and a WHOLE slew of other games. If you're a registered GameSpy owner, go pick it up.


Well, in our part of the world it's Christmas Eve. So, here's wishing you all a Merry one, those who celebrate it.

The empty post that's been online since 12:30 am was the result of my ISP's (RoadRunner) gift to me this year, a fifth weekend of flaky or nonexistent internet connectivity. Sorry about that all (two of you :-).

A.T. Hun comments: Glad to know RR gave you such a sweet Christmas present. We opened up our presents last night. Santa didn't bring me Q3:TA, but that will be quickly rememdied :) I did get some loud and obnoxious music which is always A Good Thing.

New Ask Hook

VoodooExtreme put up a new edition of Ask (Brian) Hook. In this installment, he clarifies some comments he made about id and Epic in talking about 3dfx, and talks about the effects of mods and MMORPGs on gaming in general. As always, an interesting read.

New Mozilla Roadmap

Mozilla.Org posted an updated roadmap, detailing their release schedule through 2001 including tentative release dates for Mozilla .7 through 1.2.1. If everything goes well, Mozilla 1.0 will see the light of day in Q2 of 2001. Here's to it! Thanks Slashdot.

Creative on NVIDIA and 3dfx

Digit Life posted a brief interview with someone at Creative Labs for their thoughts on 3dfx's demise and NVIDIA buying their technology. Thanks Blue's News.
