UPD: quake.snoot.org stats (25 Jun 2000 at 22:37)
I've upgraded my quake statistics to include flag captures. Soon: totals for each class and weapon on the individual statistics page, as well as advanced teamplay information like fragging the flag carrier.

NEW: Tom 7's New Computer (25 Jun 2000 at 12:56)
I built a new computer ("metroid") a few weeks ago, and finally got around to writing about it. Check out Tom 7's New Computer, with an explanation of what I got and how I put it together, and some recommendations.

NEW: tom7 at mp3.com (22 Jun 2000 at 19:48)
I have a new page at mp3.com, which has many of the mp3's in my Tom 7 MP3s collection, but also some new ones. But here you have the ability to stream them, download low- or hi-fi versions, as well as read descriptions. Check it out.

I should also point out that I think they pay me some small amount for every download/play. So this is a nice way for me to give out my silly songs for free!

(Update in 2008: mp3.com is long dead to me. Long live mp3.tom7.org!)

NEW: quake stats (22 Jun 2000 at 19:08)
I now have stats up for my Quake 3 Fortress server. I wrote this program myself and I'll put up source as soon as I add most of the features I'm considering.

Aureate Sucks (15 Jun 2000 at 11:43)
Check out this story on that site: http://grc.com/oo/aureate.htm.

Christ! I consider myself a pretty savvy user, and I had this advert.dll on my system. It's part of, for instance, Go!Zilla. (See list http://www.radiate.com/press/products.html ).

Quick summary:

- installs as part of other freeware without telling you - hides in your browser's address space to avoid detection by egress firewalls - specifically avoids removal when user attempts windows add/remove programs - periodically (insecurely) checks with the master server to see if there are "updates", then downloads and runs them

This program is a big security risk (I wouldn't be surprised to see a worm based on it pretty soon). It also is apparently unstable and responsible for a lot of browser crashes. (My netscape got a lot healthier after removing it!)

If you're a windows user, delete /windows/system/advert.dll now! Note that this might break the freeware programs which use it.

UPD: SICO (06 Jun 2000 at 17:17)
I made the move selection on SICO a little prettier and added a new rule involving Kirbies to make the endgames less annoying.

UPD: Tom 7 MP3s (04 Jun 2000 at 12:09)
New MP3s in the Tom 7 MP3 Gallery. Enjoy Theme from Niv Study Bible (with tricky 11/4 bridge) and Yellow (based on the backwards version of an old song called Theme From Shady Alley).

I've put some more 'Anti-design' up on my Inexplicable CS Web Page. This is fun!

Temperment (03 Jun 2000 at 12:44)
I get e-mails pretty frequently asking me what my Keirsey Temperment is. I just went and did it today again, because I couldn't remember, and I got:

NF/INFP 'healer'. .. the description is sort of accurate, but I don't think I had an unhappy childhood (the only thing that my parents complained about was that I played video games too much and got bad grades).

I was pretty close on some of the little bar graphs, and looking over the site, I think that last time I took this I was an NF/INTP 'Architect', this one is a pretty sensible description of me too (despite that it mentions my Arch Nemesis 'Ayn Rand'), so maybe I'm somewhere in between these.

UPD: Tom 7 Radar (02 Jun 2000 at 00:25)
I've upgraded Tom 7 radar to separate these messages by month, since the page was getting rather long. A good enhancement to this would list the last 5 updates or so no matter what.
