NFL Week #3 Final

I'm sure you've heard of "The Perfect Storm": where the conditions are just right (or just wrong) to make a bad storm into a horrific one. Well, that happened last weekend for me. Everything that could have gone wrong with my picks did. My fantasy team scored over 100 points--too bad those were my bench players. My Lions lost a painful game that I had the privilege of watching. I'm just now getting over this. Anyway, I was 7-7 and Eeyore was 10-4. Maybe I should just quit now. Year-to-date I'm 27-19 (.587) while she is 32-14 (.696).

Here's the really stupid thing: I'm also picking games with my relatives on Yahoo. On there, I'm 30-16. Explain THAT one to me.

Serious Sam: TSE in Linux

For a long time now I've wanted to be able to play Serious Sam: The Second Encounter in Linux. Unfortunately neither WINE nor Cedega (WINE's gaming counterpart) have been able to pull it off. Well, today I got it working with WINE! Ironically, it still won't run on Cedega, but single player at least works as well as it did in Windows. Huzzah! More senseless violence.

More on udev

Well, it seems that udev rules aren't going to be stabilizing anytime soon. Things changed yet again between udev-097 (the version Slackware 11/-current uses) and udev-098. If I read things correctly, though, udev should still read old rules properly. I can see bits being added to the rules, etc., but these wholesale changes are more than a little annoying. I can't imagine what it must be like for Patrick Volkerding or anyone else who tries to create a distribution.
