though i rarely post here, i'm inclined to agree with those that say a 'backup' site is needed for readers of bluesnews--any consenus on where this might be? i found it somewhat frustrating that other sites didn't seem to post any information about this site being down.

What's the easiest way to see the MD5 of a file?

in linux/freebsd it's 'md5sum/md5 filename'. for windows, http://www.etree.org/md5com.html#download looks like it will work.

"Finally got a chance to see Scourge done Slick all the way through -- this is just too amazing for words. I cannot recommend this more highly to anyone with the SoA mission pack. In fact this is a reason to get SoA if you haven't already. This is the best Quake movie ever." - Blue, Blue's News.

i'm a little late on this one, but you were right about the quality of this movie, blue.

Some of my favorite memories from gaming are still from QWTF, helping those damn Mexicans cross the border one minute and in 2Fort and TheRock the next.

rock and rock2 were probably my two favorite maps for qwtf. perhaps maybe there will be some hope of a remake when (..if?) tf2 comes out. at any rate, i'm looking forward to more news about tf2 now that hl2 is gold.

i'm certainly looking forward to dragon quest 8, though i haven't seen enough to be positive that i'll like it. i've played 1-5 and 7, and enjoyed them all, and the trailers on the dq5 remix disc looked really promising. here's to hoping it does in fact come to north america; square-enix of america doesn't seem to be overly enthusiastic about promoting the dragon quest series, as evidenced by the following: http://www.dqshrine.com/dw/seinterview.htm

i'm going to have to side with 'is' in the 'is or are' question. i don't think most people would say, 'which one are worse, tornadoes or hurricanes?' since there are only two things for the 'which' to operate on, it seems to be a case of one or the other--that is to say, it's asking which one of the two is worse than the other. so even though there is a plural there, it's a choice between one of two things. for 'are' to work, i think the sentence would have to be something like, 'hurricanes and tornadoes, which are two of the deadliest natural disasters, are not particularly fun.' that said, i have a history of being completely wrong most of the time.

blue: my best wishes to you and your family.

though i know i'm in the gaming minority, if this comes pass and bioware stops all linux (and osx) ports, it's really going to bum me out. that's not to say that bioware would necessarily have to stop, but ports would seem less likely, to me at least.

yeah because rise of nations has no simularities to age of empires at all...
while i agree that they are both similar in that they are rts games, i do think that ron and aoe are pretty different within the genre. that is to say, i find them different enough such that i don't particularly like one (ron--though i'll happily play it at a lan party), and love the other (aoe--aom is another story). also, i have friends that feel the exact opposite of me, and will only play aoe at lan parties, while they dig ron and will play it any time.

So yes, those that dig this game, and probably Serious Sam, are just simpletons.

that's hardly fair to say. it's perfectly conceivable that someone could be intelligent, and still find enjoyment in games that don't require much more than shooting everything in sight. on the whole, it would seem to be a matter of preference, and not intelligence. i should also say that it seems unlikely that an 'intellectual' would naturally prefer games requiring a great deal of mental power, as i've seen friends who i would classify as 'smart' get addicted to completely simplistic shareware games. of course, none of this goes to say that one of thes games requires more 'thinking' than another, as i've played neither.

MUSCULAR BEAVER!!!: i suppose you could just make the resolution higher in zdoom. it may not be opengl, but it looks a lot better that way, or at least it does to me.

Michael Bolton's hair dresser: it's a patch wad to doom2. http://f1.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/thldrmn/lst?.dir=/Daedalus+POTD&.src=ph&.order=&.view=t&.done=http%3a//f1.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ has pictures.
i must confess, i'm a bit puzzled at people refusing to even try this wad because they can't run it in their source port of choice. i understanding liking certain graphical enhancements, but a fun game is still a fun game, regardless of the graphics, or at least i should think (zangband?).

MUSCULAR BEAVER!!!: yes, you do need doom2.wad to run it.
*edit* or tnt.wad or plutonia.wad (i just checked the included documentation)

and while it may be true that things are all a matter of perspective, that certainly doesn't make life any easier. as a long time reader, i felt compelled (as did many others, it seems) to create an account and post my 'best wishes.' truly, i hope things work out for you, your family, and everyone else as well.
