Played some GLQuake (yes, Quake 1) tonight. Fired up the Vigil game and blew up a ton of monsters. Quake 1 can be amazingly fun, even if it looks dated by today's games. Now I may just have to play through the original Quake again, just for the giggles.

Oh, and it runs like a bat out of **** too :-)

DMCA Run Amok

Whilst perusing the updated PC Magazine website, I came across this new commentary by John Dvorak about Dmitry Sklyarov who was arrested and charged with violating the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

A Modest Anti-Virus Proposal

David Coursey has a modest proposal for dealing with virus writers, like the one who wrote the SirCam worm. I feel that his proposal is the most cost-effective, practical, and downright fun way to deal with them. I would just like to add that his "solutions" should be carried out in slow-motion. Thanks Slashdot.
