    I finally got around to installing my GeForce 6600 GT this weekend. Installing mesa and the nvidia drivers was actually a lot easier than I remembered it from my original geforce-on-linux days. I’m not much of a PC gamer anymore, but I didn’t waste much time in tracking down the demos for Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Doom 3. Not flawless, but more than I expected with the sorry state of closed graphics drivers on linux. Nvidia is set to release a new driver at the end of this month that is rumored to be a large improvement over the current 7676 drivers. We’ll see.

    Command & Conquer: Renegade still won’t run on wine proper, nor a cvs checkout of winex. I’m all but convinced that TransGaming purposefully cripples their cvs tree to intice people to pay for a subscription to the pre-packaged version (which actually works). Who knows, maybe I’ll pay my tithe and pick up a copy some day since several people tell me the few pc games I still play work perfectly on it. Anyone care to loan me a copy?

    "I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money-power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed." -Abraham Lincoln
