Happy Birthday, UT!

Beyond Unreal reminded the world that five years ago today, the original Unreal Tournament (or UT99 as it has come to be known) was released. I had reinstalled that for a while. I'll have to get it back now that I have more HD space. Of course today my rig can run it superbly, which definitely wasn't the case with my box five years ago. I never got into the UT vs. Q3A argument (OK, maybe I did a bit) because I liked both games. Still do.

NFL Week #12 Final

Eeyore and I finished this weekend tied at a scintillating 12-4. Year-to-date that makes me 111-65 (.631) while Eeyore is 109-67 (.619). Hooray for us! My fantasy team got creamed like so much corn against the best team in the league. Thankfully, the team beneath me lost so I believe I have clinched a playoff spot regardless of what happens this weekend.

HL2 Surprise? Deathmatch!

The recently announced "surprise" for Half-Life 2 owners has semi-officially been announced as deathmatch! There is even a screenshot included that shows combat of a most nefarious kind. Thanks Blue's News.

Novell Launches Another Broadside

I wonder what SCO's pain threshold is at this point. Their lawyers must be mainlining painkillers. Heh.

Eeyore and I went out today to ring the bells at the Salvation Army kettles. First time I've ever done this, and I really enjoyed it. We got a pretty good donation rate too, about 50%, so I'm pretty pleased about that.

A.T. Hun comments: That's only because you look so pitiful, TM. Personally, I usually give all my money to the Salvation Air Force *rimshot*

In other news, you know you've truly earned the ire of a computing community when the crackers deface your site with a simple banner, that matches the rest of your site design, that says "We own all your code - give us all your money". Wow. Most crackers couldn't be bothered to go through that much work.
