DOOM3 Deathmatch at QuakeCon

id has announced that they will be showing off DOOM3 multiplayer at QuakeCon this year. That'd pretty much be the only reason to go to Texas in August, methinks. The release also says that Splash Damage is working on multiplayer levels for the game. I look forward to hearing what people have to say about it and, more importantly, playing the game myself when it comes out. Thanks Shacknews.

Reason for DirectX 9.0b

Well, the word has finally gotten out as to why Microsoft released DirectX 9.0b yesterday. There is a . . . wait for it . . . buffer overflow that could be triggered by a MIDI file. Seriously. Somehow or the other even Windows Server 2003 is potentially vulnerable. Thanks Blue.

DirectX 9.0b Released

Microsoft has released DirectX 9.0b, available from Windows Update or this page. No word on what has changed, other than "security and performance updates." Well, there you go. When I was using Windows, it was my practice to let a few people try a new DirectX before installing it myself. No sense in finding all the bugs yourself, especially when there is no M$-supported way to uninstall it. Thanks Blue's News.

Hope Springs Anew

The summer doldrums are almost over. My beloved Detroit Lions open up training camp today! The first NFL pre-season game between the Bucs and Jets, the American Bowl in Tokyo, will be played on August 2. The games start for real on September 4. W00t! It's about time. Baseball is making me nauseous.
