Creative Beats id with Patent

According to a board post over on Beyond3D, Creative has decided to attack id Software for the "Carmack Reverse", the programming method John Carmack used to implement shadows in the soon-to-be-released Doom 3. The best part? The patent seems to be based on tech talked up by an Nvidia employee during a Creative tech show. Nice. I have to add Creative to my Corporate Megalomania (stuff)list.

No DOOM3 for Win98/ME Owners

According to Planet DOOM, DOOM3 will require Windows XP or 2000. Win98/ME users are SOL. I'd think that by now most people with systems capable of running DOOM3 wouldn't be running 98/ME anymore anyway. Some of us have moved on to Linux, which will run DOOM3 just fine, thank you very much :) Thanks Blue's News.

Pondering the Imponderable

Well, vacation is treating me pretty well so far. I'm going to see some old friends that I haven't seen in years. I've also been enjoying some high-quality carbonated malt beverages. I did, however, have to install Firefox on my parents' computer since IE was driving me up a wall.

I'm beginning to remember why I hate election years. The amount of stupidity that comes out of both sides in the name of debate is mind-boggling. Maybe this year I will actually vote for this candidate after all. Or maybe I'll just put myself down as a write-in.
