My first Jott post

I just got an account on Jott. I'm trying out this voice posting thing. It's pretty windy so this may not come through after all. I'll have to try again later. listen

Later: Not bad. I wouldn't want to use it for something long and/or complicated, but I see how it could be useful.

Myst games with Wine

I just finished playing Myst III: Exile this evening. I knew the villain looked familiar, so I looked up the actor. Turns out that Brad Dourif has been on The X-Files, Babylon 5, and The Lord of the Rings. No wonder I recognized him!

My computer runs Linux, but I was able to play the game just fine using Wine. It all went so smoothly, that I tried installing Myst IV: Revelation so I could start playing it immediately. No luck there, unfortunately. The installation went fine, but when I try to run it, I just get a splash screen and it dies. *sigh* I'm not the only one with that problem, at least, but it doesn't help me play my game right now. I guess I'll try again later, either fiddling with my configuration, or (*gasp*) booting into Windows for the first time in ages. It's probably for the best; I still need to go to work in the morning and it wouldn't do to get drawn in to another game tonight.
