If you've had difficulty finding a good binary that still works for quake 2 try Yamagi Quake 2. Just follow the instructions there cuz they work perfectly on modern Linux systems. Yipppeee!
In light of the malware scare yesterday, I thought it might be prudent to make sure everything else was up-to-date on security fixes as well. In addition, I've added a new theme for registered folks to try out.
I have been informed that my site was producing malware warnings from Google. Google web tools reported that some malicious ads were possibly being served through my OpenX ad server. OpenX has been removed and the database deleted. tuxmachines.org is completely safe as are the google ads that remain.
I'd been happily using Sabayon 5.3 past several months until one unhappy update. So, I went back to my Mepis install. Then I remembered why I had to move on from it. So with Sabayon 5.4, will my KDE desktop return to a usable state?
You may have noticed the lack of updates to the site past few days, and along with my apologies comes the explanation that I've been very ill.
Although I've not seen an official announcement yet, Amnesia: The Dark Descent is ready to download - at least for pre-orders.
If any have been wondering why things might seem a bit slow around here lately, it's because I haven't been feeling well. Hopefully things should be getting back to normal in the next coupla days. Thanks for your patience.
I've run Linux since before the turn of the century. I know Linux. I love the commandline. But after 10 years of fiddling, I've come to realize one significant thing.
I want to formally thank all those who contributed to the Tuxmachines' fund raiser this past 24 hours. The response has been heart warming to say the least.
I've gotten quite a few responses to my quickie look at KDE 4.4 under Mandriva written for this week's Distrowatch Weekly. One of which came from Aaron J. Seigo himself. I thought I might share some of what he said since several people expressed similar concerns on the topic here in comments. I also found one really super-duper neato new feature in Akegator in 4.4 that deserves a mention.
Again I'm in the awkward position of having to apologize for my cable company and their failing service lately. Service went out this morning about 8:30 and didn't return until almost 4 this afternoon.
One of my stories made LinuxPlanet's Top 10 Linux Planet Stories 2009. Maybe I'll get some more work there this year.
I guess you might have noticed we were offline today and the connection is still very spotty right now (will connect, but drops after a few seconds). There's a lineman supposed to come sometime tomorrow maybe, you know how that goes. I am sorry for the trouble and hope we'll be back up soon. Just keep trying. Don't forget about tuxmachines while we're down.
We've suffered two occurrences of downtime within the last 4 days due to loss of electrical service in the area.
If you are (or were) an Ubuntu user and haven't voted in our latest poll, I ask that you please consider doing so now.
My apologizes for today's problems. The lights blinked this morning and I've been having issues since. But they seem to be resolved now.
I know a lot of folks use feedburner 'cause they either don't have feed software available to them or they like the way feedburner keeps track of who's subscribed and who looks at what when where... But for me their new links are pissing me off!!!
I was expecting a real slide of the actual virus...
