Adventure Pinball

I finally installed Digital Extreme's Adventure Pinball last night. As you might recall, it is the pinball game using the Unreal engine. I must say that I was very pleasantly surprised. The game is an awful lot of fun. If you like pinball at all, download the 17M demo and try it for yourself.

Counter-Strike Fixes

The Counter-Strike team has released an updated 1.1 version of the mod version of CS to fix an installer issue. If you haven't updated to 1.1 yet, download the new 1.1 patch (or full version) from their downloads page. If you have already patched to 1.1, just download this file. Thanks Blue.

New RA3 on Sunday

Version 1.5 of the Rocket Arena mod for Quake III Arena will be released this Sunday. It will be available as a 90M full version or a 50M patch (that's some patch!). For the boatload of improvements and fixes, check out the Rocket Arena site. Thanks Stomped.

TFC: The Scout

J emerged from his den and saw his shadow so he sent in another article in his series on Team Fortress Classic! This time, he takes us on a guided tour of the Scout class. If you have the need for speed, this is the class for you! While you are at it, why not check out the other articles we have available in our Gaming Tips section?

The Price of Stupidity

I busted out the ol' adding machine and totaled up the cost for my hand injury. Not counting therapy or follow-up visits, the total bill comes to $4,098.52. Actually, it is the cost for repairing the injury. The injury itself was free. Thankfully, the vast majority of that will be covered by my insurance.

J.t.Qbe comments: Gosh A.T., wouldn't it have been cheaper to keep your hand out of the snow blower? (Yeah, yeah, that was lame. I'm just glad that it wasn't worse!)

A.T. Hun comments: Actually, it probably would have been cheaper to go head-first, but that's an entirely different story. Thankfully, only $368.15 will have to come out of my own pocket.

Red Hat == Profitable

I saw on the Motley Fool this morning that Linux distributor Red Hat has broken even and expects to show a profit for Q1. A Linux company showing a profit? How about that! How long that can be sustained is questionable but I say, more power to them.

And yes, the Motley Fool has quickly become one of my favorite sites to visit.

The headline says it all. No word on the tacos just yet. She's dead, Jim.
