Valve Multicore Support

Ars Technica has a nice write-up on how Valve is providing multicore support in their Source engine. The article is a bit technical without being mind-numbingly so. I find these issues to be absolutely fascinating even if I wouldn't have the slightest idea on how to deal with them. It also makes me wonder if future games will be almost impossible to support via Cedega with all the threads being dealt with behind the scenes. I'm guessing it will be at least 2008 if not later before we even see games that will make significant use of multiple cores, to say nothing of demanding them.

NFL Week #9

Just squeaking in under the line, here are my picks for this weekend's NFL tilts. As a Lions fan I must say, "Let's go, Red Wings!" Giants, Saints, Bills, Cowboys, Bears, Jaguars, Falcons, Bengals, Rams, Vikings, Broncos, Chargers, Patriots, Seahawks.

The Master comments: Eeyore's differences for this week: Packers, Ravens, Bucs, Redskins.

The Master comments: Can SOMEONE explain what the heck happened with today's games?!?

A.T. Hun comments: Beats me. Ask Eeyore; she picked the Redskins after all. I am happy that the Lions showed up. For some reason they do tend to do well against the Falcons.
