Pondering the Imponderable

Well, it looks like we blew it. I should have gone to GenCon this year. Next summer they are moving it from Milwaukee to Indianapolis. How that is a "step up" is beyond me. I would have liked the opportunity to rub elbows with some game designers and to mock all the people dressed like Klingons or heaven only knows what. Oh well. I guess next time I go to Milwaukee, I'll just have to go on another Lakefront tour and drink their beer. J.t. and I have been on their tour more times than either of us can remember. Thankfully, Mrs. Qbe could always be our designated driver.

J.t.Qbe comments: I would've been happy to go with you to GenCon this year, but our lives have been way too busy. It was a lot of fun when I went in '91 and '92; I got to see the tech demo for Ultima Underworld and meet some of my favorite game designers (Steve Jackson, Mike Stackpole, and I got Liz Danforth to autograph my Tunnels & Trolls rulebook). Those were the days. Hey, set aside time and I'll go to GenCon/Indianapolis with you next summer.

Winamp3 Final

Winamp has finally released Winamp3 to the 'net. I have been playing with the betas since the first underground release, and with this final version I am quite pleased with the player. It worked well last night, the DirectX playback was much louder then in Winamp2, and it was very stable. I'm impressed.

A.T. Hun comments: Of course, if you're running Linux (and if you aren't, why not?), then you'll definitely want to check out XMMS. It works remarkably like Winamp and can even use Winamp skins.
