Day of Wrong Moves

January 19th, 2006

A Friday. So many things went wrong.

  1. I lost my tiny flashlight. It’s a tiny one, no wonder I lost it.
  2. I was going to replace cooling systems on a video card. Got the kit, but it’s missing tons of parts.
  3. A power supply with busted fan.
  4. Smokes came out of the same power supply.
  5. Power supply was replaced only to find out the onboard USB controller was shorted out and busted. It could no longer supply power to USB devices.
  6. Wasting a few hours trying to install Windows XP on busted machine; see 3, 4, and 5.
  7. Found out the battery of a 13″ MacBook no longer holding charges. Now I have to go to Apple Store and get it exchanged.

That’s a lot for one day.

Asides from that, I purchased:

  1. Fujitsu MH2120-BH-R 2.5″ 120GB SATA 5400 RPM Hard Drive
  2. Corsair DDR2 1GB PC5300 (667MHz) SO-DIMM (VS1GSDS667D2)

Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory is available in Mac OS X Universal Binary

Finally, Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory is available in Mac OS X Universal Binary.
One of the best and FREE game out there. Did I say FREE?

The PowerPC version was a resource hog. I’m downloading it right now and will test it later today.

UPDATE:
I’m having trouble connecting to most servers.

From Timothee Besset:

“I hope ETPro and other major ET mods out there can update and support the new Mac client soonish.
Meanwhile you may have a bit of trouble finding servers that will accept this new client
(the best approach may be to use qstat [3] and filter for servers running etmain/,
I haven’t found a good third party server browser for OSX at this point)”

I used to play a lot at Hamsters House Of Fun server.
