Super Bowl Prognostication

I'm going to a Super Bowl party this afternoon (more emphasis on "party" than "Super Bowl"). In a game that should have viewers shooting out their T.V.s en masse by the third quarter, I predict that the Giants will beat the Ravens by a final score of 3-2.

The Master comments: That game sucked. Nuff' said.

A.T. Hun comments: Agreed, but the party I went to was fun. My vote for the best commercial is the one with the running of the squirrels. Couldn't have been a great ad though, since I don't remember what company it was for.

The Master comments: Doesn't surprise me that you don't remember the company. They're an E-Biz company and they have NO idea how to sell themselves in a commercial-but it was a funny commercial.

When It's Done

In the Trenches contacted a number of developers to get their input on 3D Realm's policies of not realeasing info on Duke Nukem Forever and giving no other release date than "when it's done." Thanks Blue.

Server Anniversary

In a bit of bizarre synchronicity, the day I hurt my hand (Sunday the 14th) was also the one-year anniversary of The Haus running on its own Linux box. We've had far fewer problems since we left NT for good. Here's to a bright future!


A tip for anyone trying to fix network problems on their PCs. DON'T delete your network settings. When Windows reinstalls networking you can get some gloriously screwed up settings on your PC. My machine is insisting that multiple users are using my PC when I've got everything set for single user. Friggin' Windows sucks. Come on Linux community--give me THE OS so I can get off this crap.

Update! Okay, fixed the problem. Turns out a system policy from my work network snuck onto my machine when I logged into work. Thankfully it is dead now.

A.T. Hun comments: Sounds like a classic case of PEBKAC to me :)

The Master comments: A.T., remind me to remove your networking and reboot a few times next time I visit. For that, you deserve it :-)

Be a Junkyard Warrior

Slashdot announced that my new favorite T.V. show, Junkyard Wars, is taking team applications. Whaddaya think? Team Haus? Actually, if I can't run a snowthrower properly I probably shouldn't go rooting around a junkyard.
