Pondering the Imponderable

I've been enjoying the Jedi Master gametype in Jedi Knight II quite a bit recently. I haven't tried it online--this has all been against bots. In Jedi Master, there is one lightsaber. Whoever has it becomes the Jedi Master gets all force powers at level three. He gets frags for everyone he kills. All the others try to bump off the Master and take the lightsaber for themselves. You would think that the Jedi Master would be too powerful. But remember, everyone else is gunning for him and he can only use the lightsaber and his force powers to attack. Plus, everyone can see the Jedi Master wherever he goes as if they had force seeing just for him. Cool stuff.

In other news, I gave the CrossOver plugin the first torture-test yesterday as I used it to listen to the Red Wings game via Windows Media Player. I am pleased to report that it worked flawlessly. There didn't seem to be any weird memory leaks or other problems. It just worked. You can't beat that. Actually, I'm using it right now to listen to the Dan Patrick Show on ESPN Radio.
