NS 7.0 RC 1 released

Netscape has released Netscape 7.0 RC1 for download, along with a list of what's new. I'm thinking about trying this bad boy out myself -- anything to get away from Internet Exploder.

A.T. Hun comments: Seven? They skipped right on to seven? Oh well. Personally, I'd say go right to the source (literally) and get Mozilla instead.

Doom III Preview

Gamespy has put up a Preview of Doom III article talking about the E3 debut of Doom III, what they saw, and some info on the game. Yum.

A.T. Hun comments: Sounds like it's going to be pretty awesome. It was interesting to note that they hired a bona-fide science fiction author to write the script for it. They must really be intent on not making this a "run, shoot, run some more" kind of game. I was also glad to see that the rumor that it was coming out on XBox first proved to be false.

UPDATE by A.T. Hun Gamespy now also has some hi-res screenshots from the demo for your viewing pleasure.

Break CD Protection with a Pen

Normally I wouldn't post something like this, but since I feel that Sony's CD protection violates fair-use laws and playing the discs can even cause iMacs to lock up, I decided to go with it. Apparently you can circumvent Sony's copy-protection of compact discs with a felt-tip marker. I love it. Hope you paid a lot of money for that scheme, Sony. Jerks.

Anybody Need a Car?

I can offer you a great deal! I arrived in Michigan about an hour ago, but not without great difficulty. We had to stop when we had just gotten out of Illinois. Somebody blew a stop light, smashed into the front of the Hunmobile, and totalled it. Well, the insurance company hasn't seen it yet so it's not officially totalled, but the repair shop said they thought it was. So if you need a recent model Intrepid whose front is slightly off with the rest of the car, I can make you a deal. Thankfully, none of us were hurt in the slightest. Now we have to find a new family car . . .
