WineX 2.2.1 Released

Transgaming has released WineX 2.2.1. WineX is their fork of the WINE project (the Windows compatibility layer) to better support DirectX-based games. This version claims, among other things, to provide a 200-300% speed-up in Jedi Knight II. I sucked down the CVS and am compiling it. We'll see if those statements hold true. Thanks Linux Game Tome.


My wife managed to snag the last widescreen DVD of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones from Toys R Us. Only $10! Quite a bargain. It really shows off your DVD player/sound system. Very cool indeed.

UT2K3 Sales

According to this article about Digital Extremes, Unreal Tournament 2003 sold a whopping 800,000 copies in its first month alone. That's awfully impressive, given its relatively steep system requirements. I know I like it! Thanks Shack News.

NFL Week #10 Final

Apparently I jinxed the Broncos by talking about rooting for them. Anyway, I ended up 9-4-1 while Eeyore was 7-6-1. Year-to-date I am 92-51-1 (.639) and Eeyore is 80-63-1 (.556). Maybe I can catch up to my first-year mark of .649! At least I'm better than I was last year at .605.

Team Haus Expands

For some time now, The Haus has been involved with the United Devices effort to use distributed computing to fight cancer. Since I've been running Linux full-time on my main box, I haven't been able to run the UD client. Because of this and to give my Athlon XP 1800+ something to do, we have started a Folding@Home team. Check out our Team Haus page for the details on both efforts. Donate some spare CPU cycles to help find a cure!

NFL Week #10 So Far

With one game left, my record for this week stands at 9-3-1 and Eeyore's is 7-5-1. Thanks to Atlanta and Pittsburgh, we were both saddled with a tie. Blech. Thanks to Indianapolis' unexpected drubbing of the Eagles, not only did I lose that pick, but the Eagles defense gave my fantasy team next to nothing. They may have single-handedly lost this week for me. Grr. Since my Lions looked so wonderful (*cough* who greased Schroeder's hands?) I'll have to pull for my #2 team, the Broncos, tonight with all my might.
