Team Haus Stats

United Devices is having a little problem with the team stats right now. For example, I am only showing 11 results returned and 2,267 point for the team, but my personal stats are 21 results for 3,574 points. This is a known issue and UD is working on a fix.

Shogo for Amiga Released

AMIGART is reporting (actually, they reported this last week) that Hyperion has released their port of Shogo to the Amiga. They also report that the game is available from Eye-Play (no affiliation, yadda, yadda). You will need a PowerPC-equipped Amiga to try it. AMIGART even linked to my very own Haus of Shogo! Thanks PlanetShogo.

There are also patches already available for the full version of Shogo for the Amiga and for the demo. Make sure to check those out.

Evil3D Reviews Shogo for Linux

Avatar at Evil3D posted a review of Shogo for Linux. Overall, it is a very positive review. Unlike my review of the game which compares the Linux version to the Win32 version, this review goes into more detail on the game itself. That's especially helpful for people who haven't played the game before. Check it out. Thanks Linux Today.

Rest of RAMBUS Case Thrown Out

The federal judge in charge of RAMBUS' suit against Infineon has thrown out RAMBUS' remaining three claims. Round 1 goes to Infineon. Naturally, there will be appeals. However, Infineon and the other memory maker's lawyers now have more ammunition. This comes on the heels of the revelation that RAMBUS is making a whopping $2 in royalties per 128M DDR RAM chip from Samsung. Thanks Slashdot.

Pondering the Imponderable

Ouch! We just had a power blip here that caused my computer to restart. Actually, that was the problem. It didn't want to restart. Thankfully, after turning it off and letting it sit for a little while, it came back up with only a few lost chains for my troubles. I think I might have to look into a little UPS.

Q3A/TA Beta Patch Next Week

id's Robert Duffy updated his .plan with word of a new beta patch for Quake III Arena/Team Arena next week. Here's a snip:
We will be releasing a point release beta early next week. This one has taken some time but it addresses quite a few things. Graeme has been very busy with the network stuff and net traffic is now being compressed at about 4:1, this should make a huge difference for modem players. There should be a substantial FPS boost for most people and there are a bunch of fixes/tweaks in place. This release will also contain an auto update system so you can check for new updates at any time. If you get the beta, the final will be offered via the auto update. This addresses all of the cheats and hacks we know about as well. That is an ongoing battle. This point release will utilize a different protocol as a result of the new network compression.

Linus Torvalds Rebuttal has a rebuttal to the Microsoft speech yesterday from Linus Torvalds, the man behind Linux. His response is far more sarcastic than Cox's was, but he does do a good job of poking holes in the arguments presented. Thanks Slashdot.
