Stratos UT2K4 Guide

The Stratos Group released their Unreal Tournament 2004 Guide in PDF form. It's a very handy reference for newbies and seasoned veterans alike. I wish I would have read it before so I could have been a better pilot on AS-Mothership. Check it out.

Let's Go, Red Wings!

My beloved Red Wings can clinch the NHL Western Conference's top seed and home ice through the Western Conference finals with a win, tie, or overtime loss in tonight's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets. They're also one point ahead of the Tampa Bay Lightning with one game in hand for the President's Trophy and home ice throughout the playoffs. Since the Wings have 30 wins in the friendly confines of Joe Louis Arena, home ice throughout the playoffs would be A Very Good Thing.

UPDATE! The Wings won 3-2, clinching the West and opening up a three point lead on Tampa Bay with two games to play. Another win in one of their final two games and the Wings clinch the President's Trophy.

Community Bonus Pack(s) for UT2K4

The same folks who brought you the original Community Bonus Pack for Unreal Tournament 2003 are hard at work creating an all-new pack for Unreal Tournament 2004 and converting the original pack to work with UT2K4. The site is a little short on details at the moment, but some of the map screenshots look very cool indeed.

Unreal Tournament 2004 Tips

I've thrown together a quick list of some handy Unreal Tournament 2004 Tips that I have gathered from around the 'Net. I'll probably be updating this periodically as I learn new things. Check it out!

Do you hear that whistle?

Check this: IBM Seeks Declaratory Judgement. That's right, kids. IBM is done screwing around. They're going for SCO's throat. My, what big teeth you have >:>

A.T. Hun comments: I like how they specifically added language about the GPL. That would pretty much eliminate any chance of SCO or anyone else for that matter attacking Linux, saying it illegally contains Unix code. I wonder when the judge will rule on this. I'd guess this might have something to do with SCO's recent motions in this case.

J.t.Qbe comments: Burn baby, burn/Flames gettin' higher 1.1.1 Released

The team has released version 1.1.1 of their office suite. You can download a copy for just about every operating system out there. I've been using OOo as my main word processor for a couple of months now. There was a learning curve coming from WordPerfect, but it wasn't too bad. Before you fork over the cash for the latest version of MS Office, give a try. What do you have to lose?

J.t.Qbe comments: Half the time MS Word/Office on my work-supplied computer won't run. I finally got fed up and installed OO. I've used it for several major projects with no problems or complaints about compatibility with the "company standard". MS doesn't like OO, naturally, but give it a try: it works, it's free, and IMO it's better than MS Office. As A.T. said, what do you have to lose (besides your rage and frustration)?

The Master comments: The irony here is that Microsoft is now claiming that hardware, not software, should be free. Kind of stupid, considering the cost of manufacturing hardware. Hardware requires natural resources and manufacturing space to turn them into finished products. Software, really, requires nothing more than a couple of servers, internet connections, and a lot of dedicated programmers. And therein lies the power of the FOSS community. I'm not shocked that Microsoft wants software to cost money. Software development is their bread and butter, and the creator of their massive stupid-huge pile of cash.
