It's a Motown Two-Fer!

It's a good night to be a Detroit sports fan! My beloved Red Wings won the first game of their second round series, blanking St. Louis 2-0. The Pistons won their first playoff series since 1991, beating the Toronto Raptors 85-82. Ahh. I think I'll have a refreshing barley-based beverage and soak it all in.

April Showers Bring Morrowind

It's here! Stores across the country (EB and Babbages, anyway) are getting Morrowind. I just picked it up at Babbages in Battle Creek. Finally!

JKII Patch Soon got word that Raven will be releasing a patch for Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast "soon." No word on everything that will be included, but Raven's Kenn Hoekstra said that the heavy lightsaber stance has been "tweaked heavily." I can only hope that it makes the "Death from Above" move either far more difficult to do or make you far more vulnerable when you do it (or both). A very easy one-hit-kill move is a Very Bad Thing.

Nevertheless, I'm still enjoying JKII a lot. I'm in the process of playing through the single player part of the game one more time. Battling against Reborn and Shadow Troopers are a never-ending source of joy. I hope that the game sells enough (and it seems to be at the top of the charts right behind the ubiquitous Sims games) that Raven/LucasArts can make an expansion pack. Here that, Raven? I've got a credit card!

OpenOffice 1.0 Released!

The team has announced the release of version 1.0 of their office suite! That link goes to a list of mirrors. I've been using 641D a bit and have been very impressed. As a matter of fact, this summer I'm considering switching all of my stuff over to OpenOffice from WordPerfect. We'll see how that goes. Amazingly enough, even the comments on Slashdot are all positive!


Well, by this time it'd actually be "Todaywind" but that doesn't work well. Word on the street is that Morrowind will be hitting stores here in the Midwest as early as today, Wednesday. It shipped from a Michigan warehouse on Tuesday, so odds are good that at least some stores near me will have it (where "near" = 5 to 75 miles). I'm hoping. . .

UPDATE: It's sounding like preorders are arriving today, but stores won't have it until tomorrow at least. That's ok, I guess--tomorrow's a slower day anyway.
