NWN Linux Client Info Page

Bioware has put up the official information page for the Neverwinter Nights Linux client. There's not much there right now. It's basically a summary of Derek French's post from the other day (story). Nevertheless, there is an official source for news at last. Hopefully there will be some good news relatively soon.

NWN Pre-Order Modules Unlocked

Bioware has unlocked the three modules for Neverwinter Nights that were previously only available to those who had pre-ordered the game. The modules are To Heir is Human, The Winds of Eremor, and The Dark Ranger's Treasure. They are available from the NWN modules page.

More WorldCom "Errors"

Word broke today that WorldCom has "discovered" another $3.3 billion in accounting errors, bringing their grand total to a staggering $7.1 billion. Wow, this is really turning into a bloodbath. Even worse, they say that this might not be the end. I wonder who has the cash or the desire to snap up their infrastructure which will no doubt sell for pennies on the dollar.

Exploit Your Windows

There's a fascinating article on exploiting Windows posted on the Net. This guy has figured a way to GUARANTEE an exploitable Windows, no matter what patches you use, and no matter how carefully you secure your system. Some of this stuff is very technical, but AFAIK it's all very doable, and a competent programmer could use this information to write an exploit that would be able to take over just about any true Win32 system in existence. Wow.
