More things

I got my parking permit in the mail. How imminent the return of autumn is.

I also got a few other things, and tested them all out this evening. They are NEC PowerMate Enterprise towers, some 266MHz, some 300MHz Pentium 2s, with 512KB cache (so much cache!) 1 AGP, 4 PCI, 2 ISA. The AGP slots all contain an ATI 3D RagePro card. Most have 192MB RAM, but one has 320MB.

These must have been pretty high end machines when they were new. I have no idea what to do with them, though. I could probably replace bender (my old 233MHz Pentium-MMX) with one, but it doesn't really need better hardware. They could be way-too-powerful X terminals if I needed any of those. I guess I could always use them for compiling or rendering video in parallel.

I don't know what to say about OMF Battlegrounds. I only played it for about 5 minutes and didn't really get the controls. It seems a lot like those playstation fight-em-ups, which I hate. The remix of the original title theme brought a grin to my face, even though they couldn't get C.C.Catch for this one. I'll play it some more and revise my opinion.

Thanks everyone for the text messages! Kept me from sleeping at my desk ;)

OMF

I couldn't run it :(. It would freeze at those metal doors playing the original kick ass theme.
