NWN 1.61 Patches Released

Bioware has released the 1.61 patches for Neverwinter Nights, which allows owners of the original game, Shadows of Undrentide, and/or Hordes of the Underdark to play with/against each other online. It also enables Linux users like myself to play Hordes of the Underdark. Rapture!

Pondering the Imponderable

If there's something better than hot and sour soup on a cold day, I'd like to know what it is.

The Master comments: My Beef Veggie soup. But that's just me :-)

J.t.Qbe comments: You're both wrong. It's Vegetarian Eggrolls followed by Mock Duck and Fried Potatoes at Kimson in Bloomington, Minnesota. Hmmm. I need to talk my boss into another trip back to the home office.

Gael Duval Interview

Linux Questions conducted an interview with Gael Duval, the founder of Mandrake Linux. It covers Mandrake's origins as well as its planned emergence from bankruptcy protection. I thought it was interesting that the first distro he used was Slackware. Mandrake is now the anti-Slackware, meaning that it has graphical wizards and utilities for almost everything and that it is very bleeding edge. Slackware is more "Here's your Linux! Go!" with an emphasis on stability.

Even though I am a former Mandrake and a current Slackware user, I wish them all the best. Hopefully they and SUSE can get "Joe User" to try Linux. Then, once they are comfortable with it, they can try Slackware :) Thanks Slashdot.

The LG Saga Continues

I called LG today to find out the status on my CD-RW/DVD-ROM drive. I got some good news and bad news. The bad news is that they haven't mailed out my drive yet. The good news is that since my model is discontinued, they are upgrading me to the latest model, the GCC-4520BI. The only difference seems to be that it is a 52x/24x/52x drive whereas the old one was 48x/24x/48x. Hopefully that also means that I'm going to get a fresh warranty. They said that they are out of stock right now, but he figured that I should have it no later than Christmas (although he said they could be in today). We'll see.

The Master comments: You are so never going to get that drive A.T. They're just going to lead you on for a year or two until they get bored of it :-)
