Lions Waiting List?

Yes, Virginia, 'tis true. For the first time in their history, the Detroit Lions have a bona fide waiting list for season tickets. Part of this is due to moving into the sweet new Ford Field which, besides being in Detroit itself, is 15,000 seats smaller than the 80,000 seat Silverdome. Yes, the Packers have a mile-long list, but they are the only game in town. The Lions have competition from the Pistons and the almighty Red Wings. It just shows that Lions fans are the best (and probably most forgiving) fans in the country.

Netscape/Mozilla Cookie Problem

CNN is reporting that there is a flaw in the way that Netscape 6/Mozilla handles cookies. By viewing a specially coded HTML email, a user could be redirected to a website where the cookies could be stolen. Netscape 6 users can upgrade to 6.2.1. Mozilla users should upgrade to 0.9.7 (although I told you to do that five weeks ago). Thanks Blue's News.

MOA:AA Review

The Firing Squad posted a review of Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, the Quake III engine-based WWII shooter from 2015. Basically their review is the exact opposite of their Return to Castle Wolfenstein review. Great singleplayer, mediocre (at best) multiplayer. From what little I could see from the demo (until I upgrade!) it really does seem like you are a part of Saving Private Ryan. Thanks Blue.
