Quake II as an MMOG

alphaWorks OptimalGrid Overview has middleware code to operate Quake II as an MMOG, the latest fruits of efforts at IBM to facilitate games, in this case Quake II, on a grid of servers (story). Here's what they sent along about this:
OptimalGrid is a self-contained middleware designed for developers to create grid-enabled parallel applications without themselves becoming experts in grid or high-performance computing (article). The Linux compatible middleware now includes automatic distribution and provisioning on to Grid nodes. See how the first release of Quake II was made massively multi-player by running on a Grid. Get modified Quake II from Sourceforge to run with OptimalGrid and let the massive Grid games begin.

tango, either you are too close to see the forest for the trees - or you are just plain deluded... I think the most telling point is your absolute refusal to entertain any perspective but your own. So common.

Intrusive R

To an objective observer, the intrusive r is very prevalent in RP. It involves the "insertion of an r-sound at the end of a word ending in a non-high vowel where the next word begins with a vowel.

http://www.ic.arizona.edu/~lsp/RPEnglish.html

In Britain, the non-rhotic accent gives rise to linking "r"s, where an otherwise unpronounced "r", in "clear", is pronounced if followed by a vowel, "clear away". An intrusive "r" is an "r' added in such a situation where noneactually exists, so "law and order" becomes "law ran order". In some cases, there is even hypercorrection, such as adding an "r" (Louisa Louiser), especially when a non-rhotic person moves to a rhotic area. But if Clair hears the "r" she'll correct you.

Further, it is usually acceptable to use an optional linking R between words to pronounce expressions such as "law and order" to sound like /lɔ:ɹəndɔ:də(ɹ)/. The final r here depends on what follows.
