NFL Week #6 Picks

We're at week six already? Where has this season gone? Anyway, here are my predictions for this weekend's action: Bills, Cowboys, Giants, Colts, Saints, Patriots, Lions, Steelers, Bucs, Raiders, Jaguars, Chiefs, Broncos, 49ers.

The Master comments: Eeyore's picks: Steelers, Cowboys, Colts, Vikings, Patriots, Giants, Saints, Bills, Bucs, Jaguars, Raiders, Chiefs, Dolphins, 49er's.

WineX 2.2 Released

Transgaming has released WineX 2.2, their WINE gaming fork. You can get the details on the release here. I sucked down the CVS tonight and installed it. I had been waiting to reinstall it on my new Mandrake 9 installation anyway. I haven't gotten a chance to do much with it yet. The big thing is that it supports Everquest (see the release notes for a few caveats though). Thanks Slashdot.

UT2K3 Patch Fixes

Unreality got a list of all the changes in the upcoming patch for Unreal Tournament 2003. They mainly look like gameplay tweaks. Hopefully they will have some fixes for some of the problems people like The Master have been having. Thanks Shacknews.

America's Army 1.30 Patch

The 1.30 patch has been released for America's Army. It includes a new map and adds a number of new features to this popular free shooter from the U.S. Army.

NWN 1.26 Beta Patch

Well, that didn't last long. It seems that some people are having problems with the 1.25 patch for Neverwinter Nights. Bioware has released the 1.26 beta patch for people who are experiencing some "issues" with 1.25. Since it is beta, it is unsupported. I patched my copy, but haven't played it so I don't know if any of these bugs will affect me.

Ren and Stimpy: Gross as They Wanna Be

A brief interview with John Kricfalusi removes any fear that the new episodes of Ren and Stimpy will be watered down in any way. The new episodes will appear next year on TNN. The article specifically mentions a follow-up to their "Fire dogs" episode which should be a riot. This is great news for people like me with terribly bad taste. Thanks Blue's News.

Jim Seymour, Rest in Peace

Longtime PC Magazine columnist, Jim Seymour, passed away suddenly. I've been a subscriber to PC Mag since I was in college. I've been wondering why Seymour hadn't had a column for about half a year. I'll miss reading his insight into the business side of computing. Blue had the link.

J.t.Qbe comments: That's too bad. In some ways he and Dvorak were the best part of PC Mag.

Making the x86 fast

There's an interesting article online over at Chipgeek titled "A Way to Revolutionize x86 CPU Performance". In this article, x86 performance is discussed from the perspective of extending the x86 architecture to allow additional GPU registers to increase code performance. Good read for the uber-geek machine language crowd.
