ThreeWave CTF 1.6 Released

The ThreeWave team has released version 1.6 of their CTF mod for Quake III Arena. Currently there is only a 469K ZIP file upgrade from 1.5 available. A Windows installer and full version will be available soon. This release mainly fixed some minor bugs with 1.5. Thanks Blue's News.

New Ren and Stimpy?

According to the TV Guide Online, TNN has bought the rights to Ren and Stimpy from Nickelodeon. Ren and Stimpy is one of my favorite cartoons of all-time until Nick forced creator John Kricfalusi out. According to the article, TNN will be running all the episodes uncut and are in discussions with John K to produce new ones. They will even show one never-before-seen episode that was deemed too violent by Nick. Rock! Thanks Slashdot.

Nasty Media Player EULA Change

With the latest patch for Microsoft's Windows Media Player comes a rather nasty surprise. By agreeing to the EULA, you are agreeing to let M$ install Digital Rights Management software to your OS and disable programs that would be able to circumvent the DRM. Yikes! Words fail me. Thanks Slashdot.

Excuse me while I reboot to Windows and uninstall Windows Media Player.

Apache Vulnerability

CERT has released an advisory about a vulnerability in Apache, the software that runs the majority of web servers on the Net. It affects Apache 1.2x, 1.3x, and 2.0x. Check the link for new versions of Apache that fix the problem. Apparently a worm has already been discovered which takes advantage of this exploit. Thanks Ars Technica.

It's the Little Things

Now that I've been using Linux almost exclusively for some time, there are little things about Windows9x that have become REALLY annoying. One was a pet peeve of mine before I switched over. When I'm going through the Start Menu, if some other program starts running (at boot) or a message window pops up, I'm immediately dropped out of the menu. The Start Menu should never, ever lose focus. Thankfully, KDE nips this one in the bud. I also made the mistake of tweaking my Windows Explorer settings. Now all of my directories are marked "view as web page" so I have to go through and change them all by hand. Blech. Whoever at MS decided that a web page metaphor would be a good idea for a file manager should be shot without trial.
