Pondering the Imponderable

Well, loyal Haus reader Ryan and I got VoIP working with UT2K4. Sadly it will not work if I'm running a listen server. I have no idea why that is. It's something with the game, not an error on my part. I had to run a dedicated server and then log into it with the client. That worked pretty well--until I added enough bots for a Torlan Onslaught game. It quickly became a slideshow. I think I'd need a lot more memory and CPU horsepower to pull that one off. Having said that, VoIP did work pretty nicely. The headset that comes with the SE version of the game is nothing spectacular, but it gets the job done. The mic is better than I expected. Now that The Master has the game, we'll have to get THoP revived!

And tomorrow . . . I do my taxes. Rah!


Eeyore just called me. I now own Unreal Tournament 2004. Thank goodness. I should be able to tell the sordid story of how I got it soon.

Destructive Worm Targets Firewall

There's a nasty new worm on the loose that targets a flaw in the BlackICE and RealSecure firewalls. The really bad thing is that it will overwrite parts of your hard drive, making it inaccessible. If you use either of those firewalls, check this page for a patch. Unfortunately, they don't say what to do if you are already infected. Thanks Slashdot.
