Let me take a few minutes to point out some awesome things (other than chairs and Triscuits)

The Day of Defeat source video is an in-game demonstration of the power of the HL:2 engine. The special effects generated in-game are amazing. A torrent file of these videos is below:

Age of Empires III (after I resolved the sound issue) is one of the most stunning and immerisive RTS’s I have played since Homeworld 2. Checkout the demo for this game here:


HP has released a technology called “Quickplay” that allows for instant boot to play DVDs and music CD’s without loading Windows. They accomplish this through a specialized Linux partition. As soon as I can obtain one of the installation CD’s, I will give this puppy a try. If anyone knows where I can “obtain” one of these discs, please let me know. 🙂

I just ordered a GeForce 6800 video card for myself for Christmas. Actually, my parents wanted to get me something so rather than try and guess the right thing, I bought it and they will pay me back.

Everyone have a happy week of finals! I will reminice on what being a student was like.

    Not a single mention of our visit! I guess we’ll see the next time I come to your house! =*( *pout* Seriously though, isn’t buying yourself something and taking the money for it kinda killing Christmas, in a way? =P
