SCO Terminates IBM's Unix Rights

Much to no one's surprise, SCO signed their own death warrant by terminating IBM's Unix rights. Of course, this is mostly rhetoric unless they can get a court to agree with them. Hopefully, SCO's days are now numbered so we can all go back to hating Microsoft :)

In a related story, Robert X. Cringely claims that AT&T might enter the fray too, claimed some reserved rights to Unix. That'd be funny. Thanks Slashdot.

UPDATE! IBM has responded with what you might call the legal equivalent of flipping them the bird.

Half-Life for Linux Petition

This site has an online petition asking Valve to release the source code for Half-Life (like id has done for all of its games) and to port Half-Life 2 to Linux. Now I know that the success rate of these sorts of things are next to zero, but I signed it anyway. And yes, I would preorder a Linux version. I'm just that crazy. Thanks Shacknews.

Happy Father's Day!

I'd like to wish a Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there, especially those on The Haus staff: The Master, J.t.Qbe, and J. J is the only one who has managed to have a girl so far. Naturally, a very heartfelt "Happy" also goes out to my dad, Mr. Norman Hun, for having the good sense to have me over 35 years ago.
