sCary's Half-Life 2 "Preview"

The NDAs have been lifted on Half-Life 2 information. I'll link to one preview, the one written by sCary over at Shacknews. This was a "hands-off" preview. On top of that, the preview build was from last September. This will definitely be a game to keep an eye on. Still, just the title "Half-Life 2" gives it a lot to live up to.

Mozilla 1.4 Beta Released

At long last, Mozilla 1.4 beta has been released. Check out the release notes and get downloading! Find out why it is my favorite browser and mail reader.

ICQ Exploits

Core Security Technologies published a list of vulnerabilities in ICQ that would allow your computer to be compromised. Most of them are everyone's favorite: the buffer overflow. They apparently tried to contact the AOL/ICQ security team about this but received no response. ICQ clones like Licq are not affected.

Infogrames Becomes Atari

Infogrames announced that they have officially changed their name to Atari. I guess this makes sense after they bought the rights to the name, although it bears little resemblence to the company we all knew 20 years ago. I've always thought that "Infogrames" was kind of a dopey name anyway; it looks like a typographical error. Thanks Blue.

The Master comments: Maybe it's just me, but this ring-around-the-namechange stuff is just stupid. A name change in the business world does not allow you to hide from your stupidity.
