Too Much Half-Life

Since Deathmatch Classic came out, I've been playing a bunch of that as well as getting back to finishing off Half-Life single player, which I'm only half way through. HL has quite a compelling story and probably the most interesting level design I've seen in a shooter. Unfortunately, it's also one of the harder shooters I've played.

I even made myself a multiplayer logo of the Red Wings' emblem. :)

The Master comments: Heh-I'm into "We've got Hostiles!" in the SP game. It is SOOO pretty on my current machine-on my old one the game was so bland and washed out. FWIW, however, Alice is defintely the hardest single-player game I've ever played. H-L is tame in comparison.

Congrats to the Avs, I Guess

Congratulations are in order for the Colorado Nordilanche who just won Lord Stanley's hardware. I'm happy for Ray Bourque, who finally got his Cup after so many years. On the other hand, as a Red Wings fan I cough up blood at the very thought of the Avs. Oh well. October is not that far away, is it?

New PalmOS Emulator

Palm has released a new version (3.2) of the PalmOS emulator (aka POSE). POSE allows you to run PalmOS applications on a virtual PDA on your Windows, Linux, or Mac box. It is an invaluable resource for any aspiring PalmOS programmers like myself.

Filtering M$ Word

Several of the major open source word processing projects (Abiword, wvWare, and KWord) are going to be working together to create import and export filters for M$ Word documents. As much as the Word format is an albatross, it is used by most everyone. Even if Linux word processors can offer better formats, they still need to support Word for most businesses to seriously think about using them. Thanks Slashdot.

On a personal note, a WordPerfect filter would be nice too.
