Max Payne Demo Tomorrow

3D Realms' Joe Siegler update his .plan with word that the demo for Max Payne will be out tomorrow. It probably will take you longer to download the demo than to make it through the actual game. The demo weighs in at 137,163,202 bytes. Have fun, modemers!

While I Was Gone . . .

There were a few interesting stories that popped up over the Labor Day weekend while I was spending some all-too-rare time with my family. Here they are in fun bulleted format.J.t.Qbe comments: After reading comp.os.vms for the last few months, this merger suddenly makes a lot of sense. Compaq wants to move above the PC market, but needs a serious clue. HP's already there and stands to gain some good resources from Compaq, which has never seemed to know what to do with DEC/VMS/Alpha(R.I.P.). The hope is that HP will actually back VMS and promote it. The fear is that HP won't.


We're done some major upgrades to software on The Haus. Pardon the mess while we patch things up.

A.T. Hun comments: Ahhhh, gotta love off-site updates of PHP and MySQL :) At least everything's working again.

The Master comments: Actually, to my amazement, it all went relatively smoothly. Unfortunately, PHP has changed their default handling of quotes in later version of PHP 4. That'll teach me to test better before I label an upgrade a success :-/

Welp, it looks like Code Red is blasting off across the Internet once again this month. I've gotten well over 200 hits in the last two days (I don't have numbers for the first) and it's running steady. Can we start suing the idiots who refuse to patch their machines now?

J.t.Qbe comments: I've seen fewer hits in the last few days--it seems to be slowing down for me (I'm connected via @Home cable modem). Still, I hope Code Red opens some eyes about the "security" of Microsoft systems. I read this last week (don't have the link) that one insurance company is raising the rates for companies who use Microsoft systems vs. other platforms. I think that this will continue.
