Rant for Monday - August 25, 2003

Hey all. I know you're probably expecting the lowdown on Ultima X: Odyssey, but you're going to have to wait till tomorrow. A series of events occurred since fiday that have left me unable to work on it. Apparently, while we were in San Francisco, a massive thunderstorm came by the area, causing massive power outages, which in turn managed to kill our DSL modem. It's dead, jim. Hopefully, we'll have a replacement next week, but until then, I'm having to make updates over a crappy dialup connection, and since I have to do them on the net itself, I have to keep it semi-brief. I will say this about UX:O, though... It's probably not what you expected.
Speaking of crappy dialup, I have a bone to pick with you. Scott Kurtz has already touched on this, but I feel it is my duty, nay, my NEED, to tell you that you NEED to either get some virus protection software, or run the SoBig fix here. I'm getting somewhere near 500-600 e-mails a day, and with norton checking every one of them, combined with the absurd slowness of this connection, it can take up to two hours to check my e-mail, which might net me possibly 10 actual e-mails. I NEED you guys to run the fix. I've done it, and norton has a veritable wall around my system preventing me from sending any out. Unfortunately, it's the mail servers that get all this crap, so there's no way to prevent me from having to download the mails I get that are nothing but crap. Anyone who already has some sort of virus protection : you are a hero. Like Conan, or Winnie the Pooh in The Blustery Day.
