Trackers Down

Our news and finger trackers are going to be down for the time being. Webdog is hosted by Blue's News, so they will be down as long as Blue's is down. Hopefully it won't take more than 24 hours. If not, my guess is that they won't be in a big hurry to work on weekends.

Bailing on Broadband?

I saw a link to this CNet article on several sites. They claim that more people are ditching broadband for modems. While the cost savings are somewhat obvious, there is one thing that they don't mention in the article. Many broadband providers are struggling to provide decent service and have customer support personnel who are ill-equipped to actually answer questions. I do agree that the lack of a "killer app" is a major key. For those of us who like playing online games and downloading Linux ISOs, the benefits are obvious. They aren't so obvious for the majority though.

Grab a Shovel!

It's time to bury the UGO network. Most of their affiliates are being yanked out tonight. That means no Blue's News and other sites for at least a day. While I feel badly for the sites that had to scramble to get hosting, I am very pleased that UGO is dead. This brings to an end their sophomoric ad campaigns once and for all. Good riddance.

Congratulations go out to J.t. and Mrs. Qbe who were blessed with a baby boy on Monday afternoon! That makes six boys between J.t.Qbe, The Master, and myself--all under the age of five. Crezzy. TM, you are on the clock!

The Master comments: And congrats from me as well! I may be on the clock, but I'm not in a hurry :-)

Wolfie OSX Test 2 Released

id's Graeme Devine updated his .plan with word that the Return to Castle Wolfenstein multiplayer test 2 for Mac OSX has been released. Here's the scoop:
An OS X (10.1) build of the Wolfenstein MP Test 2 is up and available for download. I've not gone through and fixed all the niggles I want to get done, but hey it's there. There's also a separate command line dedicated server since that's been requested quite a few times.
