I've built an installer to download and install PuTTY - a free SSH client. It's available from the [putty] page. Permalink 

A CNN article has pictures (which were already in the wild) and some good commentary about half-life 2. It looks like the nda gloves are off. Permalink

It is coming out. It will be at E3 this year. The NDA will end April 28th. The future is coming this year... And Duke Nukem Forever missed another slot! With Half-Life 2 coming out, pretty much all attention will be on it, and they're in media wind up already so we can expect less than four months of waiting, other people are thinking November to commemorate the first half-life. I don't know, but one thing is certain, the most popular game on the planet will have a sequel. Permalink 

3D Realms decided that they'd play an april fools on everyone. They announced in a very suspicious manner that they were releasing Duke Nukem 3D's source code to the public under the GPL.

Note that you require the duke nukem content to play the game. Update: Mirrored here. Permalink

Read more for a list of users that will have an extra free month for their feedback and assistance. Permalink  6 Comments

I`ve quickly cobbled together a brand new news system for the site, hopefully this should be faster, and more adaptable... Since it`s database driven, it will support searching, and comments soon, so watch out! More to come... Old news is accessible from the Archive link below. Permalink
