Out of the Blue

Sigh. I went against the old adage about not fixing something that was not broken yesterday, and tried to uninstall one of the multiple versions of Java installed on my computer and, naturally enough, broke something really badly. Now the odd behavior I am not able to shake is a memory leak with FrontPage (which I have used for years as an easy HTML editor). It's a little spooky... even saving a blank page immediately triggers the leak, which continues straight on until the system crashes. Sorry about the late update and over-aged news. This has been a real nightmare, I've transferred everything to a different machine now, and I'm really beginning to suspect my aging hardware may just need to be put out to pasture at this point (hey, this may be turn into a sponsorship opportunity for some hardware type!).

Computer games are in a period of stagnation right now (unless your're a flight simmer anyway). There have been no major improvements to game engines or game ideas in a good 4 years now. Just look at all the Q3 and Unreal-based FPS's, how many WW2 games we have now, and all the RPG's look alike. Just wait a few more months for HALF-LIFE 2, and you won't be sick of the same old dribble anymore.

In the meantime, if you have a joystick, go and download the IL-2 demo( http://www.il2sturmovik.com ). I know it's a couple of years old, but if you like it, you can get Forgotten battles, which is the new and improved version.
