Beginning of the End for SCO?

Groklaw posted a detailed account of the latest legal wrangling between SCO and IBM. SCO has basically dropped the trade secret claims. The "copyright infringement" that the media outlets are talking about deal with the fact that IBM did not immediately stop selling AIX even though they told them too. IBM appears to have no interest in settling, but are going the "grind into itty pieces" route. Good for them. I also like how they are using Darl's claim of "millions of lines" against him by basically saying, "Oh yeah? Well, you didn't show it by January." Groklaw also has IBM's latest response to SCO up for your perusal. Thar's some legal kiester-kicking in there. For one last bit of fun, here's the best headline I've seen about the whole thing: SCO files for temporary restraining order against reality. Pure comedy gold.


Hey! Look at all that snow! You know, maybe I'll just drink cocoa and play some games today :-)

A.T. Hun comments: Be thankful that you don't have to remove your own snow. A corner lot, a double driveway, and over eight inches of snow are murder. My snowthrower worked well enough, but I'm running out of places to put the stuff. And now I reek of exhaust fumes too. I'm sure breathing CO for an hour and a half is really good for me.

The Master comments: Yeah, and that snowthrower and you are such good friends too . . .

UT2K4 Linux Info

Linux Games culled some information from 3DGPU's Unreal Tournament 2004 IRC Q&A about Linux support in the game. Some of it is stuff that I already knew, like the fact that VOIP is going to be usable. There is some other stuff I didn't realize, like the fact that they will be releasing a 64bit version of the game too.

Minor Konsole Fix

I've been having a minor problem with Konsole in KDE 3.2 ever since I upgraded. Whenever I ran it, it was ignoring my console settings in my .profile. After finally thinking to RTFM, I found out that you have to add a --ls command line switch to get that to work. I have no idea why they made that change, but at least it's back. Now I have my regular prompt, ls coloring, and aliases back. Despite the improvements to Konqueror as a file manager, I still like to bust open a Konsole to get some serious command line work done.
