The Haus

Saturday, July 19, 2003


Finally getting back to work building the new Haus box. It's been quite some time since I had to build a linux system from scratch. Not to mention just how STUPID rpms can sometimes be. Dependency handling is fine, but for the labor involved, a source install is the bomb. Heck, I think the CPAN dependency resolution tools for Perl are better.

Pondering the Imponderable

Well, the other shoe (skate?) has fallen. Former Red Wing Sergei Fedorov has signed with the Mighty Ducks for less than the Wings had offered him. I guess the fact that the Wings helped him defect, that he won three Cups with them, that he had the most ice time of any forward on the team last year, and that they offered more cash just wasn't enough. New Wing Derian Hatcher will have to introduce him to the boards at the Joe the next time the Ducks are in town.

I've been playing the Penultima series of modules for Neverwinter Nights tonight. So far it seems very well written and designed. There's a lot of humor involved, so don't expect something horribly dark and foreboding. I didn't think that a NWN module could make me laugh out loud. Penultima proved me wrong.

In a related story, a little birdie (OK, it was J.t.Qbe) told me that Best Buy (no affiliation, yadda, yadda) will have the NWN expansion Shadows of Undrentide on sale for $19.99 starting tomorrow.

The Joys of an In-Dash MP3 Player

Believe it or not, kids, it's time for some original content from The Haus! I'll pause while you recover from your heart attacks. My new Hun Speak column is a bit of a departure from our normal fare. Have you considered getting an MP3 player for your car? If so (or even if you haven't), check out The Joys of an In-Dash MP3 Player. After you read this article, you'll want to run out and get one too. Check it out!
