Pondering the Imponderable

I recently found out that hitting the 1, 2, or 3 keys will move you to the various seats on the multi-seat vehicles in UT2K4. That fact comes very much in handy. I just played one of the most challenging games of Onslaught I've played so far. My team was down to its last node (and that was under attack), but we still came back to win. I'm going to like that gametype alot.

The Master comments: I have been practicing a lot of Onslaught as well. I really like the Raptor, but I'm not quite sure how to control the missiles properly yet -- they seem way too random in targeting. The # key stuff will come in handy, I hate getting stuck in the truck on driving when I desperately need to use the weapons.

A.T. Hun comments: The missiles automagically home in on other Raptors or Mantas. Otherwise, they are dumb-fire.

The Master comments: Damn, I was hoping that wasn't the answer.

Nmap License Terminated on SCO

According to posts all over the net (check out the one on Groklaw), Fyodor has terminated SCO's rights under the GPL to distribute his Nmap security software. This is huge, since I think it's the first case in the GPL community of a GPL author terminating SCO's right to distribute software due to their attacks on the GPL. Here's to hoping that the Apache, X, and Samba crews do the same.

A.T. Hun comments: I believe that Apache and X are under different open source licenses. I'm not very familiar with either one.

DX:IW 1.2 Patch Released

The Eidos Deus Ex: Invisible War support page has posted the version 1.2 patch release. This one appears to be mainly optimizations that should help out various systems with graphics issues. Here's to hoping it fixes the end movies on my machine.
