No More Free Windows Update CD

I'm not sure why this happened, but Microsoft is no longer making the free Windows update CD available. I don't know if they figure the impending (some day) release of XP SP2 is enough? Thankfully, I already ordered and received the CD. One of these days I'm going to have to dust the kids' Win98 box and I'll need it.

DOOM3 Blues

I think I need to get DOOM3 and those Linux binaries pretty soon. I'm reading way too many reviews and am afraid that the whole game is going to be ruined for me. I really wish sites would say "Hey! We're going to show you a picture of the boss character now, mkay?" I've heard about this ugly hack to get the game working with the Cedega (WineX) CVS. I don't think I want to try that, but if I get desperate enough . . . Hopefully there will be some official word on the status of the Linux binaries soon.

NVIDIA 1.0-6111 Linux Drivers Released

NVIDIA has released new 1.0-6111 drivers for Linux. They are available for 32 bit and AMD 64 bit systems. I'm going to see if these fix the rare problem that I had with the 6106s. Occasionally when I would exit a game, it would drop me out of X entirely. Thanks Linux Games.

UT2K4 3270 Windows Patch Released

Epic has released the 3270 patch for the Windows version of Unreal Tournament 2004. You can snag it from such places as BeyondUnreal or 3D Gamers. I'm not sure if this is the same as the last beta patch with the same number or not. At any rate, the BeyondUnreal link has a copy of the complete changelog. If it is the same as the beta patch, I would expect the Linux patch to follow soon.

UT2K4 Rebate Arrives!

At long last, my rebate for Unreal Tournament 2004 has arrived. Mind you, I sent it out in the middle of March. I don't think I've ever worked harder for $10 in my life. Now as long as the check doesn't bounce . . .
