Pondering the Imponderable

After almost four days of no Internet (it was kind of nice, actually), I'm bringing my vacation to a close. I'd say it's been a good one, since I am ready to get back home. It'll be nice to get back to "normal" and get the kids back on a regular schedule. We took the kids to McDonald's last night for nuggets and fries. I figure that that must be some form of child abuse. It's to the point where I'd kill for some steamed broccoli or a decent salad. Having said that, South Dakota is a great place if you are a steak fan, since they all knew the cows personally.

I'm also looking forward to getting back to my Athlon XP, Linux, and my DSL. Stable, fast computing. Isn't that what it's all about?

The Master comments: I had a roommate in college who grew up on a cattle farm, so naturally he not only KNEW all the cows, by name, but all the packaged burger in the freezer was labelled with said names. Nothing like having a little Mabel for dinner. !Gack!

Nilsson Q3A/Q3:TA Maps

id's Fred Nilsson updated his .plan (remember those?) with word that he has released a new Quake III Arena map and a new Team Arena map for your perusal. I'll make sure to check those out when I return.

Mozilla 1.4 Released

The Mozilla team has released version 1.4 of their web browsing suite. 1.4 replaces 1.0 as the stable branch. This will be the last major version with the combined browser, mail, etc. Work will now focus on Mozilla Firebird (aka Phoenix) for the browser and Mozilla Thunderbird for mail. You can download Mozilla 1.4 here and check out the release notes here.

ATI drops Linux drivers for consumer cards?

There's a post over on Slashdot indicating that ATI may have dropped support for Linux on their consumer level Radeon cards. I'm not sure what to make of all this, but it's worth a read.

PHP 5 Beta 1 Released, developers of the the ultimate website scripting language, have announced the release of PHP 5 beta 1! There's a monster list of changes here. You can download it here. The biggest drawback I see with this version is the removal of the MySQL extension. It appears to have been replaced by SQLite, but this change will make it very difficult for me to consider using this version of PHP.
