Any idiot can drive fast in a straight line

The weather must be getting better because I am getting back into computer games. Why is it that I never want to play them in the winter, but only when the weather is great?! Anyway, Jenn came over last night and I showed her the wonder that is Quake III. Maybe I did something good to my machine lately, but the game seemed to run much much smoother then the last time I played.

Also, I broke down and bought Deus Ex. It's a first person shooter that has a great storyline and incorporates cybernetics. What more could I wish for?

So, I completely formatted my hard drive again. At least this time I had some sort of backup! The purpose for this format was a brief interlude with Solaris. Since Solaris 8 does not support my GeForce video card, my resolution topped off at 640x480 in glorious black and white. Pathetically, Solaris doesn't support any of the video cards I have in my Box 'O Random Hardware.

The BORH is actually much lighter than usual since I offloaded 4 modems, 2 sound cards, 4 hard drives and 1 floppy drive on my grandfather. I just hope I have enough hardware to build a spare computer... Anyway, eBay might be the source for Solaris solace, since I could get a supported vid card for like $20.

The elusive Red Ninja! "Bad guys are for killing!"
