Pondering the Imponderable

I decided to recompile my 2.6.10 kernel last night, using a slightly tweaked version of the config that comes with Slackware 10.1. I had been using the same config for some time. It probably goes back to 2.6.2 or so and has just had make oldconfig run on it for each new kernel. Actually, it began life as the 2.4.x config that came with Slackware 10. I figured some settings might have gotten munged up, so this seemed like a wise thing to do. So far, so good.

I got UT2K4 reinstall yesterday. That's not the hard part. Getting all the maps, Editor's Choice content, and mods reinstalled is a pain. Unfortunately, some of these ZIP files have some really odd permissions (700, 777, etc.), so all of that has to be fixed. I think I've got all of that working again. Of course, most of my gaming time recently has been consumed by Burnout 3: Takedown on my PS2, or as I come to lovingly refer to it, crack.

NHL: Not Getting Better

The NHL and NHLPA gave the final whomp to the base of the skull of the 2004-2005 season tonight when the owners of the Boston, Chicago, and several small market franchises put the kibosh on a tentative agreement. Thankfully, Bill Wirtz (the owner of the Blackhawks) is old, so if God is merciful we should be relieved of him someday soon. Few people will be remembered for driving a sports franchise into the ground intentionally. Bill Wirtz is one of them. I pity Blackhawks fans--if there are any left. Hopefully some better owner can resurrect that Original Six franchise like the Illitch family saved the Red Wings from the clutches of the Norris family.
