Graeme Devine (ja, er staan (stonden) meer mensen op de loonlijst bij id dan onze vriend Brian Hook ) heeft z'n .plan geupdate met wat info over Q3Test:
We're working on a new Q3Test update, no schedule other than "soon", but the fixes are almost all internal. We've still got a few issues we want to get going internally at id (notably multi-network machines).
Brian is leaving, and I just want to wish him well. He shall be missed. We're not going to be bringing anyone else in during Quake3 development. [break]En verder nog iets wat de Linux freaks hiero zou kunnen interesseren:[/break] I'm a bit behind on feedback email and it's all Lilith and Eve's fault. I went to watch their show over the weekend and Realplayer said I needed to upgrade, so I did, and since then I've been toast. I'm sure it's not Realnetwork's fault, there's simply too much beta about my Windows install to make it safe for things like DLL files.
Since then I've shifted to Linux (RedHat 6.0) as my major desktop. No more Win32! My questions to the techies amongst you are:
- we've had issues with Linux machines randomizing timestamps on Win32 filesystems when we use smbmount to mount NT servers. How do we fix this? I'm unable to get smbmount to compile in the Samba 2.04b (it errors out with a bad identifier -- NR_OPEN).
- the email client situation is not quite on par with Win32. Netscape seems the nicest, but KMail, Balsa, and others I've looked at seem to be in active development and not quite ready for solid use. Is this the case? I like Outlook type interfaces over Pine type interfaces.
I looked online, usenet, and other misc. mailing lists, but wanted to see what real world people out there are using and doing.
