DOOM3 DM Tourney at QuakeCon

On the official QuakeCon site there is word of a DOOM3 tournament that will be held during the convention. Hopefully this means that DOOM3 will officially be out by then (or very close anyway). Thanks Blue's News.

Compiling Apcupsd in Slackware 10

I had a problem getting Apcupsd (a Linux UPS monitoring program) to compile with Slackware 10. It seems that recently some changes have been made to the kernel headers with USB. Thankfully, there is a reasonably easy solution. Edit the file src/drivers/usb/linux-usb.c in Apcupsd's source. Before any of the #include statements, add this line:

#define HID_MAX_USAGES 0

Once that is done, everything should compile just fine. This only affects people with USB-equipped UPSes.

What to Expect in XP SP2

Information Week posted a lengthy article on Microsoft's upcoming Service Pack 2 (SP2) for Windows XP. Although this article was written with corporate use in mind, it does provide a good heads-up for all of you XP-using folks out there. In general, I think that the upcoming fixes in SP2 are all Good Things, but what is really needed is a complete rewrite with security in mind, especially with Internet Explorer. Thankfully for the IE-using crowd (boo hiss), the popularity of Mozilla and Opera is forcing MS for take a long look the the browser we all love to hate. Thanks Slashdot.
