Fun with Dosemu

Since my kids' Win98 box is getting wonky, I'm working on ridding myself of anything having to do with Windows. Towards that end, I had to get Dosemu running. Yes, I still have a couple of DOS programs I still use. One worked fine using a Slackware 10.1 package, the other didn't. After lots of trial and error, I determined that the version of FreeDOS that comes with Dosemu doesn't like that program for one reason or the other. After I copied over, msdos.sys, and io.sys from the Win98 installation and used that instead, the program runs fine. I'm hoping that when FreeDOS 1.0 actually comes out that it will work with this program since FreeDOS has a lot of cool, BASH-like features.

Next Gen Star Wars Video

Lucasarts has released a movie showing force powers in an as-yet unnamed game for next-gen consoles. It looks pretty sweet. I wonder how much of the environment will be destroyable/flingable. Thanks Evil Avatar.

Ok, all you aging headbangers have to go see this: Dave Mustaine on Duck Dodgers. Thank you, Detroit!

The Master comments: That was AWESOME! :-)
