BitTorrent Update

I'm downloading the second Slackware 9.1 ISO now via BitTorrent. The ISO must really be spreading around because I'm maxing out my DSL downloading it. This is the only way to download ISOs :)

NFL Week #4 Picks

In a vain effort to salvage what is left of my pride after last week's debacle, I present my picks for this weekend's games! Rams, 49ers, Steelers, Redskins, Jaguars, Bills, Browns, Chiefs, Raiders (because I have to pick one of the two teams), Cowboys, Panthers, Broncos, Colts, Packers.

The Master comments: Eeyore's picks: Rams, Bengals, Texans, Redskins, Bills, Vikings, Steelers, Chiefs, Raiders, Falcons, Cowboys, Broncos, Colts, Packers

Trying Out BitTorrent

I finally got a reason to try out BitTorrent. I used it to download the first Slackware 9.1 ISO. It took longer than it would have from a fast mirror, but it was still pretty fast, given that it had just come out. My only problem with it was getting wxPython to install properly. Here's a hint: don't just do the standard ./configure;make;make install. Read the README.1st.txt file and follow the instructions. You'll thank me later.

UT2K4 on Linux and Mac

Epic's Mark Rein made this post on the Atari forums, officially confirming that Unreal Tournament 2004 will run natively in Linux and on the Mac. Here's the Linux bits:

UT2004 will support Linux (both client and server) as well. As with UT2003, Linux support will be included in the box with UT2004. This time we'll make sure it gets mentioned on the box.

Thanks Linux Games.

Slackware 9.1 Released

Patrick J. Volkerding has announced the release of Slackware 9.1. The biggest change is a new tool to help Slackware users make sure they have all the requirements before installing a new package. They also moved up to i486 as the default instead of i386. I'll probably stick with 9.0 for a while since I have no burning reason to upgrade at this point. It's been rock solid for me. Thanks Slashdot.
