  • Win2K SP2

    Published: Saturday, December 16, 2000 | By: Dennis

    Win2k SP2 is almost here. Though it is still in beta testing I am already looking forward to what it has to offer err.. fix. I still miss having added features when installing Service Packs. Then again at least my computer will work after I patch it.

  • Nvidia buys 3Dfx

    Published: Saturday, December 16, 2000 | By: Dennis

    According to this article 3Dfx will sell most of the biz to Nvidia.

    I've not been a great fan of 3Dfx products but I do admit to buying a Voodoo1 card back in the day. To bad the news hasn't done much for Nvidia's stock.

    Published: Monday, December 11, 2000 | By: Dennis

    2cpu finally got their review up on the Epox EP-D3VA. Overall it is a very good review with lots of info.

    We here at Ninjalane also took a peak at this board. See the comparison between it and Abit's VP6 in the reviews section.

  • Personal firewalls easy to breach

    Published: Monday, December 11, 2000 | By: Dennis

    Here is a snip

    It’s one thing to rush an application to market without thinking about security. It’s another to rush a security application to market. But that’s what’s happened with several personal firewalls — a product category that was a virtual nonentity a year ago but is now standard fare for anyone on a broadband connection, including telecommuters.

    I however have a different solution. Break out that old P90 or 486, get 2 NIC's and install Linux. Then with 4 or so lines of code you have a Secure, Functional, and Free Firewall.

  • Cheats Discovered in CounterStrike

    Published: Monday, December 11, 2000 | By: Dennis

    It seems that various "cheats" have been discovered in the retail release of CounterStrike. Not that I am a big fan of CS but I know how much it sucked to get railed in mid-air by a lucky punk with a ping of 300 over and over again. He might have been good but not that good.

  • Gets Sacked!

    Published: Friday, December 8, 2000 | By: Dennis

    I got this from Fatbabies that had in turn kifed it from Planet Half-Life.

    -A source close to Havas sent me the following message via ICQ: "Havas interactive (company who owns Sierra) axed around 500 people. Sierra was a mess on Friday, lots of people crying like babies. Basically, the people who are getting axed are people on the home side (land designer, ect.). The company that was has been completely axed."

    For all of us CounterStrike junkies this could be ugly news indeed. I wonder if anyone is watching the Speeding Train that is WON Serial Number Identification Servers now that all the engineers have been canned.

    Yes you heard correct, Quake3 Tream Arena goes Gold! the expected ship date was left out of the email that I got from GameSpy but we do know this. The 1.27 point release will come out a few days before you can get Q3TA in the stores.
