Vacation Update

I saw my very first NHL game last night: the Phoenix Coyotes vs. the Edmonton Oilers at the America West Arena in Phoenix. The Coyotes won, despite being out-played by the Oilers, thanks to a stellar performance from all-star goalie Sean Burke. If the 'yotes had been playing one of the league's elite (St. Louis, New Jersey, Detroit, etc.) they would have been creamed.

Today is the first time I'm celebrating my birthday (33 years decrepit) in > 40°F weather. It's very bizarre to experience warmth in February.

J.t.Qbe comments: Happy Birthday, A.T., and welcome to 33!

The Master comments: Happy B-Day A.T.! I'd comment on the whole age thing, but heck, I'm younger than you so :-p

Carmack comments on NV1

John Carmack of id posted some commentary on /. talking about the recent Brief History of NVIDIA over on FiringSquad. Good stuff if you have the 3D background to understand it :-)

SiN patch version 1.11 released

Ritual has released version 1.11 patches for their SiN shooter. Good news, hopefully this will fix the few remaining crashes in a truly underappreciated game.

Buy Shogo: MAD for Linux

Tux Games finally has the boxed version of Shogo: Mobile Armor Division for Linux in stock. It's only $26, so you can hardly go wrong. Thanks Blue, for the heads-up.

FWIW, The Haus is not affiliated with Tux Games in any way.

History of NVIDIA

The FiringSquad has a rather interesting article on the history of NVIDIA, from the first bumbling steps with the NV1 to the soon-to-be-announced NV20. Read it to see how they went from being a distant competitor of 3dfx to owning 3dfx. Thanks Shugashack.
