Visor in Linux

All Linux Devices explains how to sync your Handspring Visor in Linux. Basically it involves making sure that your kernel supports USB. I know Mandrake 7.2's kernel supports it, I'm definitely going to try to get it working--especially now that I have a USB mouse too. Thanks Linux Today.

Q3:TA First Impressions

Yesterday I bought myself a new computer desk (very nice!), a USB trackball, and Quake III: Team Arena. My first impressions of Q3:TA are pretty amazing. Every map I load up, I say "Wow!" The terrain maps are HUGE, especially the winter one. The smaller maps are incredibly detailed and ready for some fast-paced CTF. The prox mine launcher and the new nailgun are decent enough, but the chaingun rules. It makes having the ammo regen power-up more than worthwhile. I plan on playing all the maps a few times, then writing a full review. For now, I'll just say this: Best Buy has Q3:TA for $17.99. You have no excuse. Go buy it, then thank me later.

The Master comments: I'm in complete agreement with A.T. on this one. The maps in Q3A:TA are awsome, and there is one outdoor terrain map that is just awesome to play. I'd love to get a server big enough to get a LOT of bots on some of these outdoor maps and just RUMBLE. Whee :-)

UPDATE! id's Todd Hollenshead updated his .plan with word that Q3:TA is also available from CompUSA for $17.99. Don't think of it as spending money, think of it as helping the economy!

NFL Week #17 Final

Eeyore and I ended the NFL regular season on a high note. Each of us posted our best scores of the year. I was 13-2 and she was 12-3. The final regular season tally for me is 161-87 (.649) and Eeyore's is 132-101 (.566). It's been fun. We'll have to do this again next year. This time, Eeyore can start with week one instead of week two.

Pondering the Imponderable

I'm about to do the unthinkable. I'm going shopping the day after Christmas. I already went shopping on the busiest shopping day of the year (the day after Thanksgiving) so I might as well hit the second busiest. The things I'll do for Quake III: Team Arena. I can't wait to stand in line for eight hours before I can be helped by the friendly and courteous Best Buy staff.

The Master comments: We visited the Land of Best Buy already today-went pretty smooth. They had Independence Day for $20, which was a no-pass deal :-)
