Pondering the Imponderable

I love trying to resurrect ancient PCs. I've got an old P5-75 that I'm looking for memory for (I really don't need more horsepower for this application, just memory). Unfortunately, SIMMs are relatively rare and unbelievably expensive. I've seen some no-name ones for cheap, but I don't want to spend half my life debugging random crashes either.

Raytraced Quake III Arena

Some enterprising folks came up with a modified version of Quake III Arena that uses a raytracing renderer. There's a movie of it in action that you can check out. Pretty cool stuff.


For all of you UT99 fans who miss the LavaGiant CTF map, Spoondog has created an updated version for Unreal Tournament 2004. Beyond Unreal has a list of mirrors. There are a couple more in their comments section.

More Crushing News for SCO

Groklaw brings word of even more bad news for SCO. In the Novell case, SCO was denied its request to get the trial moved to a state court. Thus, it remains a copyright issue instead of a contract issue. Oops. In the IBM case, SCO was denied its motion to split the case into two separate ones for the contract and the patent claims. Unfortunately, this could still drag on for a long time. If the IBM case goes to trial (which some doubt), it would not begin until November of next year. However, now SCO has three choices: 1) prove its claims in a court of law, 2) try negotiating a deal (fat chance), or 3) bleed so much cash it goes out of business. If I were a betting man, I'd go with #3.
