Having noted that Windows users will be laughed at but not excluded :), 
and non-members can attend, I'd like to come along, it sounds like
fun. Hm, I should probably mail that directly to Leon....

At any rate, I would like to be able to get Q3 running under Linux,
not to mention all the other stuff that uses 3D acceleration (and
there's not much point to having dual CPUs under Winthing).

Have any of you guys successfully got 3D stuff working with a Diamond
Viper TNT2 card? I've spent a quite few hours on various occasions
trying to get it working (mainly testing withthe OpenGL screensavers)
and haven't got anywhere. Yes, I'm a Debian type.

     your line is "Hi, what's your URL?"
