Jim Dosé Interview

Daily Radar interviewed id's Jim Dosé regarding their plans for the new Doom. Naturally, he is quite quiet on any specifics, but it does give a bit of an idea where id hopes to head with their next title. Thanks Blue.

Linux Gaming Festival

In addition to Shogo, I got two more Linux games in the mail today, courtesy of our own J.t.Qbe. They are Loki's ports of Soldier of Fortune and Quake III Arena. Q3A came in a tin box and everything. Now I just have to make sure that I get my work done!

I also have to figure out what the problem is with my wireless Internet access in Linux. I can ping servers just fine, but I can't connect to them. If anyone has any ideas, I'd be pleased as punch to hear about them.

Shogo for Linux

Well, I got my copy of Shogo for Linux in the mail yesterday from Tux Games. It only took six days to get here. That's not bad when you consider Tux Games is located in the UK. My only complaint so far is that they require a serial number to play the game. Unfortunately, they forgot to put it on the manual. Upon getting in touch with my Hyperion contacts, I found out that the number is on a sticker on the shrink-wrap, which, of course, I had thrown away. It's pretty easy to miss a little 1/4" x 2" sticker. Fortunately I hadn't taken the garbage out so I was able to retrieve it. Expect a full review of the game soon.

Stephen Heaslip Interview

In the "turn-about is fair play" department, Levelord has posted an interview with Stephen "Blue" Heaslip, the man behind Blue's News. As you might imagine, the interview is very silly indeed. It is nice to know that there are some webmasters out there as old as J.t.Qbe and yours truly.

More Napster Silliness

Aimster came up with a Pig Latin encoder for MP3s to circumvent the filtering on Napster. They claim that if the RIAA tried to reverse it, they would be guilty of reverse engineering under the DMCA. Not sure if it would hold up in court, but it certainly is funny to think about.

Also some Canadian is planning on setting up a Napster clone on a sovereign island off England. I think that the RIAA will live to regret not making a deal with Napster when they had a chance. Their victory will turn out to be pyrrhic. Thanks Slashdot for both links.
