Hey SCO: Drop Dead :-)

Groklaw has a fresh post up looking at what happens now to SCO, considering the most recent events in the Novell vs. SCO lawsuit. This is happy news for anyone in the Linux world. SCO has bitten off WAY more than it can chew, and faces imminent annihilation if Novell has their way. Sweet :-)

I also like this comment: "Contracts are what you use against parties you have relationships with." Darl McBride, May 2003. The delicious irony.

A.T. Hun comments: I hope it is true, but SCO somehow keeps existing.

The Master comments: I'm sure you're right. What will happen is the court will decide that taking SCO's money away, even though they have no right to it, would be "mean", and deny the motion, so they'll spend it out, go backrupt, and hopefully Novell will take everything back and that will be the end of the whole charade. Or, maybe we'll all get lucky and this whole horror show can finally end.

UT2K4 Render-to-Texture Beta Patch

Ryan "icculus" Gordon updated his .plan with news of a beta patch for the Linux version of Unreal Tournament 2004. Here's the pertinent part of the update, including several very large caveats:

I wedged in a hack for the license plate. There's some depth test mojo going on that I can't figure out, so I hacked around it.

So, here's a first shot at ut2004 for Linux with all the render-to-texture stuff.

Some things this fixes:

Some notes, first:

If you read all that, here you go: Unpack it in your game's System dir, overwriting ut2004-bin ...

I have downloaded it but have not had time to check it out yet. Make sure to back up your ut2004-bin just in case things blow up violently.

Update! Well, so much for that. I tried using it and it crashed with only this error message: "Illegal instruction".
