Heh-just read User Friendly, and today's cartoon is quite funny. Gotta love those Microsoft EULAs (story) :-)

NFL Week #2 So Far

Ugly, ugly, ugly. That's all I can say. Ty Detmer with 7 interceptions?!? What's up with that? At any rate, with two games to go this week I am an even 6-6 and Eeyore is 4-8.

Half-Life Buffer Overflow

Security Focus is reporting that there is a buffer overflow vulnerability in the Half-Life client. It could allow any Half-Life server op to run arbitrary code on any client. Whee! Thanks Blue.

NFL Week #2 Picks

Yikes! I almost forgot! Here we go: Ravens, Colts, Panthers, Lions, Vikings, Chiefs, Dolphins, Chargers, Titans, Jets, Eagles, Rams, Broncos, Packers. I ended up 11-4 in week one. Eeyore was 8-7.

Eeyore's picks: Falcons, Ravens, Colts, Browns, Vikings, Giants, Raiders, Cowboys, Titans, Patriots, Seahawks, 49ers, Broncos, Packers

A.T. Hun comments: Once again I underlined the differences. Just a few this week *cough*

Linux Wolfie Client Released!

id's Robert Duffy updated his .plan with word that the Linux client for the Return to Castle Wolfenstein multiplayer test has been released! Too sweet. It can be snagged from I would assume that the usual suspects will also have mirrors.

Linux Wolfie Screenshot

id's Timothee Besset sent a screenshot to Linux Games of the Return to Castle Wolfenstein multiplayer test running under Linux. Hopefully that means that we'll soon have a client to download. Too cool.

No King of Pop for You!

Our very own Wraith pointed me to this site which claims that Michael Jackson's new CD single has technology that keeps it from being played in a CD-ROM drive. Apparently the recording industry feels it hasn't ripped off customers enough. Now it comes up with an unplayable CD! Of course, I can't stand Michael Jackson (although Alien Ant Farm's cover of Smooth Criminal is pretty cool) so this won't affect me immediately. The Master, however, will be heartbroken :)

UPDATE! Heh. I'm hearing reports that the single is already showing up on popular file-sharing systems. So much for copy protection. Maybe if they sell CDs cheaper with fewer crappy songs people would buy more. Nah, that makes too much sense.

The Master comments: Ummm... I have NO (read: negative 10 bazillion) use for The Jackson. He is way too odd for me. Blech. Even being accused of this in JEST is a mortal insult. I need to wash now or something.
