This is a short post. Last night, I wanted to load up bzflags on my MythBuntu box so I could crush the kids in an epic tank battle. Too bad my 500W power supply had roasted, and may have been merrily cooking away for a day or more before I found out.
So, off to the store I went, where I picked up a decent 650W power supply with all the right connectors for about $100. After I got home and installed it, MythBuntu powered up fine and I loaded bzflags. It was late, so the epic tank battle is on hold.
Update – My son wiped the field with me. With glee and a complete absence of pity. My daughter came close to doing the same thing. I shudder to think of the beating my wife can deliver behind the barrel of a tank. I apparently suck at bzflags, but it sure is fun, even losing. I just blame it on my mouse, or on the wireless network (which works without flaw any other time – curious), or the dog (current tally: farts, missing treats, losing to my son at bzflags).
