GeForce3 Info Tomorrow

According to several sites I've seen, the NDAs on NVIDIA's GeForce3 run out tomorrow. Expect to be deluged with previews. For my money, the best part about the GeForce3 coming out is that the GeForce2 will become cheaper.

New Hun-Speak

An editorial on CGO entitled Quake III is Not That Important debates the merits of using Quake III Arena as a benchmarking tool. While I agree with a number of his points, he unforunately strays from the point and turns the editorial into an attack. I have posted a rebuttal entitled How About We Stick to the Facts? Read his article and then read mine.

Finally got the family through cold and stomach flu, and guess what? It looks like I'm coming down with it now. I expect to be lying on my deathbed for the next two days or so. Goodie.

In this vein-where does a company get off charging $6 for a 1 liter bottle of kids sport drink. I won't name it-since that would probably get me in trouble, but I'm sure you can guess it's name anyway. Salted kiddie drink is NOT worth $6, no matter what the excuse--that excuse is gross profit--and since it's our KIDS we're talking about here, they can charge any damn thing they want. And we pay it. We did-5 times.

Um, Duh?

It appears that we aren't getting any smarter. Or, at least, Compaq users aren't.

The Master comments: Hehe-this doesn't shock me at all. I go around in circles with exactly these kinds of questions all the time. The drawback of being work, family, and other tech support . . .

Python Ported to PalmOS

Oh, the alliteration! Some folks have successfully ported the Python programming language to the PalmOS. The port is called Pippy. The only problem I can see with this is that it requires PalmOS 3.5 or higher, which rules out my Visor Deluxe. However, their README indicates that they are working on fixing a GUI bug that prevents Pippy from running on PalmOS 3.0. Thanks Slashdot.
