NWN Linux Client: Beta 1

Pardon me whilst I have a heart attack, but Bioware has finally released the first beta version of the Neverwinter Nights Linux client! That page has all the details. I'll let you know how it is as soon as I get it installed!

UPDATE! I had a meeting tonight, so I didn't even get it fully installed before I had to leave. So far, the beta works very nicely. I think it even runs more smoothly at the same settings than it did in Windows! I'll have to play some more to give it a better test. Here's a list of "issues" I've run into, none of which are show-stoppers by any means:

I've been very impressed so far. Looks like I'll have to do a bit more "research." :)


Eeyore picked up a digital camera for us yesterday. We settled on a Sony Cybershot DSC-P72. This is a very sweet camera--it takes great pictures (up to 5x7 at high quality) and is reasonably priced. I had a good time toying with the software that interfaces it with the PC. The only complaint I have with this camera so far is the USB device driver for Windows 2000 is not placed on the CD in such a way that Windows can install it automatically -- you need to use the installation menu Sony provides. But that's a minor complaint.

Pondering the Imponderable

Well, it appears that Saddam has made his final mistake. I pray that this whole thing gets over quickly with a minimum of casualties on both sides. Hopefully something resembling freedom can come to the Middle East. Yeah, fat chance, I know.

To lighten the mood a bit, several sites are announcing that the Inventor of the Internet has joined the board at Apple. Maybe if Apple can make Macs more lifelike, they can do the same thing with Al.
