Urgghh.. over a week of this killer flu now. My face aches.

HyRax1 spotted a Free "Ubuntu Linux Secrets" eBook available for download. As it says - this book is now out of date (circa Ubuntu 8.10) and is thus now available for free download. At nearly 840 pages and 14.4MB, why not? Could be handy.

XbitLabs check out mainstream GPU performance in MMORPGs. Again, the point of such games is not in eye-popping visuals but rather in the opportunity to interact with other players.

OCModShop interviewed Pete Hines of Bethesda Softworks about the merger of iD Software with ZeniMax media. What effect will this have on future ID releases such as Rage and Quake 5? Will we see future Doom games? Will Id move away from PC games towards consoles? Will there be any changes to Quake Con?

ZDNet have an article about the companies behind the race to the moon as we approach the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11. The manufacturing of the Saturn V was the most ambitious and complicated multi-contractor construction and assembly project ever created or executed by the US aerospace industry.
