Unreal 2 Demo After All?

Unreal Ops got word that Legend might just release a demo of Unreal 2 after all. Here's a taste:

Now that Unreal II has gone gold, we've been exploring the possibility with Infogrames and Epic, which is something that Headup wasn't aware of. FWIW, everyone involved-including Legend-is very conscious of the benefits of a demo, and we'd all love to do it. I hope to have more news soon.

Thanks Shacknews.

KDE 3.1 Released

The KDE team has released version 3.1 of their popular desktop for Linux and other Unices. The list of changes is long and impressive. I am using the new Keramik style and Crystal icons in my Mandrake installation. Very purty. I will no doubt upgrade when Mandrake 9.1 comes out.

MS Gets Slammed

I saw this link on a number of different sites and it's too funny not to post here. Microsoft got hit hard by the Slammer worm this past weekend. Why? They didn't apply their own patches on all their boxen. A snip for your, em, snipping pleasure:

On Saturday, the Microsoft's Windows XP Activation service was down, not because the servers were vulnerable, but because the company's internal network was inundated with junk data, Rick Devenuti, the chief information officer for the software giant, said in an interview Monday.

Parsec to Go Open Source

As it would happen, I stopped by the Parsec homepage the other day just to see if anything was still going on with this cross-platform space shooter. Today comes the announcement that the project will be going open source. Of course, given their goals, I wish they would have done this some time ago. Here's a snip from the announcement:

The source release will include platform support for Win32, MacOS X, and Linux, and contain both OpenGL and Glide rendering code. It will include almost everything that has been part of the earlier LAN-Test releases, as well as our new client/server code that is already far along in development. However, it is our hope that this release will be picked up by the Parsec community for further development, supported by members of the original Parsec Project.

Thanks Slashdot.
