UT2003 for Linux

I had ordered Unreal® Tournament 2003 from Tux Games a while back, and received it this weekend. The Linux installer is included on the 3rd disc, although if you didn’t read that online, I don’t know how you would know that from the packaging. But it’s a super game. Granted I have a good graphics card (NVidia Geforce200)…and I’m really excited because the audio works! I could never get Quake3 to work because of the stupid mmap audio problem. Evidently, UT2003 uses OpenAl which seems to recognize whether I’m using artsd, or alsa, or whatever, and it just works. Woo-hoo! Off to DeathMatch…

Some Assembly Required

Boundless Websize has a recent article about Christian college students and many of the reasons which they give for not regularly attending a local church. The article goes on to state that Christian take church membership far too casually, and does a pretty decent job of backing that claim up. More folks of my generation should do a little reflection for the role and purpose which church attendance and membership plays.

Churches should teach all of their members that membership is not a flippant decision, but a commitment to serve Christ through the ministry of a specific local church…Christians are expected to live their lives in the faith, and the biblical way to do that is within the context of a local church. If we don’t, both our faith and our witness suffers.

The dawn of a new blog

I’m still fussing over the layout, but I suppose that since one of the advantages to a dynamic site is that the layout can change without having to modify the content, I might as well begin blogging.
