Wolfie Multiplayer Test 2

Activision has released a second multiplayer test of Return to Castle Wolfenstein. It weighs in at 57.7M. Blue's News has a list of mirrors. On that page there is also a rather long list of things that were changed or fixed since the first multiplayer test. No word on a Linux version just yet.

Yankees Lose!

I didn't really care about the World Series that much. However, I was really sick of the Yankees winning all the time. No offense intended to the people of New York who have gone through so much recently, but I pulled for the D'backs just on principle.

My beloved (and very bad) Detroit Tigers are going to name the Marlins' Dave Dombrowski as their new president early this week. He was the architect of the Marlins' World Series championship team. Hopefully he can bring some respect back to the Motor City.

NFL Week #8 So Far

WOW! The end of the Bears game was unbelievable. Down by 14 points with less that two minutes left and they won it in overtime. Amazing stuff. My Lions failed to get one in the wins column, dropping them to 0-7. I've seen some seriously bad Lions teams in my day, but ye gads. Anyway, with the two prime-time games left, I am a much more fashionable 9-3 while Eeyore is 7-5. The Bears and Giants comebacks saved this from being another ugly weekend.

NFL Week #8

Well, we're at the half-way mark of the NFL season and what have we learned? Not much, apparently, other than the fact that my Lions are a terrible team and the NFC East should be demoted to division I-A. And, due to injuries and an ill-timed bye week, my fantasy team is going to be slaughtered. Oh and my prediction that the Titans would win the AFC Central and go to the Super Bowl is looking pretty stupid too. Huzzah!

Anyway, let's see if I can get my year-to-date average over .600 again this week. Here's my picks: Giants, Dolphins, Patriots, Colts, Steelers, Packers, Titans, 49ers, Eagles, Seahawks, Bears, Chargers, Saints, Broncos.

The Master comments: Eeyore's picks: Titans, Packers, Dolphins, Giants, Steelers, Falcons, Bills, 49er's, Chargers, Bears, Seahawks, Eagles, Saints, Raiders

Yet Another Passport Security Hole

Stop me if you've heard this before, but there is yet another exploit for MS's Passport service that has been found. Simply by reading a Hotmail message a hacker could have access to all your Passport information, including credit card numbers. I'm sorry, but if you plan on using Passport for anything, you are a fool. Thanks Slashdot.

J.t.Qbe comments: And stop me if you've heard this one before, but this is the company who wants you to store your personal data (credit card numbers, especially) on its servers as part of its .NET scheme, trusting Microsoft "security" to protect you. If you do, you're a fool.
