It Worked!

Red Hat released an update kernel for their 7.1 distribution which I am using. I decided to try using their up2date utility to do it, since their email implied that it would work. Since even an RPM kernel upgrade can be a pain, I was skeptical. Well, color me convinced. It worked like a charm! The only casualty was my NVIDIA kernel driver. The RPM for that required the old kernel. All I had to do is snag the source RPM, rebuild it, install it, and I am in business again. All too easy. Kudos to the Red Hat team!

Happy Birthday, Quake!

Today marks the the fifth birthday of id's Quake! Quake is the game that taught me the wonder that is online gaming. So I guess my wife knows what to blame :) Methos Quake has an interview with id's Tim Willits and ION Storm's John Romero about the game's design. I wonder what would have happened if they would have stuck to the original concept for Quake? Thanks Blue.

The Master comments: And we played a whole lotta Quake3 to celebrate! Hey E-quit "willing" those bots into the void, huh? I need some more kills over here :-)
