Tribes 2 Goes Gold

Sierra's Tribes 2 page is reporting that the game has at long last gone gold. It should arrive on store shelves during the first week in April. Thanks Blue.

RedHat Network Furor

Slashdot has a rather poorly titled news article "No More Free Updates for Red Hat". Part of it is true, Red Hat will begin charging $19.95/mo to use their automatic updating service. However, the Red Hat Network FAQ makes it clear that you will still get one subscription free:
Q: What does Red Hat Network and Software Manager cost?

A: Registering with Red Hat Network is free and creating system profiles is free. Every customer receives a free Software Manager subscription for one system. Additional subscriptions are $19.95/month for each system. Red Hat is offering a special introductory $9.95/month rate for systems subscribed before April 6.
So people like me with one computer will still be able to use it free of charge. Actually, most of the comments on /. are rather supportive of RH. As long as its still free for individual users, I'm not sure what the big problem is. RH has to pay for the bandwidth somehow.

Pondering the Imponderable

After going through about three or four different driver versions, I finally managed to get the Battlecruiser Millenium demo running (by the way, there's already a patch available). I'm using the 7.52 Detonators. Thankfully, my Q3:TA framerates are the same as with the 5.22s. Now I just have to figure out how to play this demo . . . Looks like it could be pretty cool, but the learning curve appears to be steep. Of course, that comment comes from a Quake junkie.

In other news (such as it is) Mozilla 0.8.1 is scheduled for release tomorrow according to the roadmap. We'll see if it makes it.

Hmm slow news day the day after St. Patty's . . . Coincidence?

J.t.Qbe comments: BC3K had a very steep learning curve; you have to like that kind of game, but you get out of it what you put into it. Hmmm, might have to fire it up again. . .
