New Master .plan

I've put up a new Master .plan: Can Microsoft classify its OS as a Service? Give it a read.

Happy Father's Day!

A big Happy Father's Day goes out to all you dads out there from The Haus! A special Happy Father's Day goes out to The Master (one boy), J (one girl), J.t.Qbe (one boy and one on the way), and yours truly (three boys). Let's set good examples of how fathers are supposed to be! I think this Mitch Albom column really sums things up well.

Pondering the Imponderable

Well, I played Counter Strike (you know, that Half-Life mod that all the kids are talking about) for the first time tonight at the Club Louie LAN party. My newbieness was evident to all, but I did get a couple of good shots in. Will I be dumping Quake III for CS anytime soon? Probably not, but it does make a nice diversion.

Speaking of diversions, I busted out my XWing Collectors Series CD-ROMs and started playing TIE Fighter again. The Collectors Series updates the graphics to the XWing vs. TIE Fighter engine. It's still quite dated, but the gameplay is still awesome. Nothing quite like piloting a TIE, knowing you are two blasts away from oblivion. Having said that, I'll still take a TIE Advanced any old day.

Anachronox Gold

ION Storm's Tom Hall has informed Planet Anachronox that Anachronox has gone gold. They plan to have a demo out by time the game hits store shelves. I'm rather interested to see how this turns out. Can Anachronox clean up ION Dallas' tarnished reputation?

Freelancer Interview

Lancer's Reactor posted an interview with Digital Anvil's Phil Wattenbarger and Jörg Neumann who are hard at work on their massive space sim, Freelancer. I'm just wondering how long it will be before the game comes out. The interview implies that it is some time off. Thanks Voodoo Extreme.
