Slowly, it all comes together

Well it was nice that an ETQW client for Linux was confirmed, but my problem was whether or not I was going to be able to actually play it.

For a bit of background, my x1600 mobility should technically be up to the task, but Linux drivers for ATI cards have been historically….. shithouse. I was imagining myself matching Fuzz’s 20 FPS on 800×600 res, and just not really enjoying the game much.

But finally ATI have been able to release some Linux drivers with comparable performance to the windows version. In fact, there are reports of running Quake 4/Doom 3 (which use the same engine as ETQW) at up to 10x as fast as previous driver releases.

Nice.

Mancans! (Qantas club)

MANCANSWTF is with that?
weve all seen the ads, I just saw a sign/bill board for it!

I think MOFO has hidden their adenda in custard filled campagine (love that word) that is MANCANS!

ETQW for Linux is in beta

Well, it’s exciting for me… I actually might get the chance to have a game with you guys at some stage.

Unfortunately they’ve chosen a closed beta for Linux, rather than an open one. – who knows why. But it seems that if I fork out the cash I’ll be able to pick up a Linux-ised copy sometime in October or November.

Look who's in Sydney Harbour...

So I’m on my lunchtime walk and as I turn the corner to the best part of the walk I am floored by what I see…

What the hell, they’re invading Australia now! I’ve lived through this once in Svalbard (that will be rectified soon), I will not let it happen again.

It’s time to kick ass and chew bubble gum… and I’m all outta gum.

Conspiracy? Or.... CONSPIRACY!

I had my first experience with the new file format from Microsoft’s latest Office series. Surprise surprise, it doesn’t work in anything else. Since I detest Office 2007 for its form and price tag, I went looking for a converter. http://www.docx2doc.com/ sprang up as an online option, claiming to be fast and easy. After a few seconds you’ll notice that there’s a price attached – literally there is a US$5 fee for the conversion. Even more than that, check who is behind this software.

Go on, check….

A "Suspected Norwegian"?

From The Age today:

The basic requirement of the stealthy night-time burglar is the ability to stay awake. A suspected Norwegian burglar failed the test and has ended up in jail.

I guess we suspect that he is Norwegian because of his lack of competence?
