Pondering the Imponderable

I managed to finish DOOM via Doomsday. I think that is actually the first time that I ever sat down and played the whole game through from beginning to end. I'm now working on DOOM II. It's clear that id learned a lot between the two games and that gamers got better. The levels are much harder and contain far more dirty tricks than the original did.

Having said all of this, I'm beginning to get annoyed at the lack of Linux binaries for DOOM3. I bought the game on August 7. I didn't figure that I still would be waiting for binaries six weeks later. I'm hoping that there will be a big surprise and the client binaries will be out at the same time as the first patch/demo. I really would like to play it again and see if my framerate has improved. I'd also like to try multiplayer. Maybe if I keep telling myself to be patient, I'll eventually believe it.

Upgrade Your Mozilla!

In case you haven't found a reason to upgrade to the newer versions of Mozilla/Thunderbird/Firefox that were announced earlier (story), you have one now. Several vulnerabilities have been found in earlier versions. It's rather refreshing to find a fix released before the bug is known.

I've been pretty pleased with Firefox 1.0PR and Thunderfird 0.8. Thunderbird in particular is much improved. Many of the extensions have already been upgraded, so if you've been putting off upgrading, you have no reason to put it off any longer.
