That's a lot of Molsen. Bigger R writes contributes this link to a story in the Calgary Herald with more detail on the sale of Corel's Linux division which was mentioned in vague terms the other day. It's going to a company called Xandros, in exchange for cash and equity, so Corel will still have at least some interest in the continued success of Linux, or at least its distro. A snippet: "Xandros Corp. president Michael Bego, who started the Ottawa company recently in preparation for the deal announced Wednesday, is also a shareowner in Linux Global Partners, a privately held New York venture firm that put up $10 million US to start Xandros."

Dang, why didn't I enter?"
Stuff that's hard to read. John Sokol writes with an update on the Cayley-Purser Algorithm mentioned here before.

The marketing manager sent me a PDF file that explains some more - apparently, they just don't have the time to update the website.
Each rover comes with a cable that plugs into the transmitter and software to allow control of the rover from your computer (or through TCP/IP).
Additionally, each rover has 'Laser Tag' as an integral part of the vehicle. 10 hits (including sound effects) and your rover is disabled 'till the next match See it here. BTW - I have nothing to do with the company, I just think its very cool."
