Submission + - Half Life is now available natively on Steam for Linux (steamcommunity.com)

Conzar writes: I loaded up my steam client for Linux tonight and found a pleasant surprise waiting in my library to be downloaded. That's right, one of the greatest FPS's in history, Half Life. I downloaded the game which didn't take any time at all. I fired it up, configured my options (max res is 1920x1080) and played the first 10 minutes of the game without any problems!

For those that have Ubuntu, Steam, and have Half Life (Beta) in their library, its a must play even if the game is over 10 years old.

Submission + - Screwed By The Town of Cary (go.com)

Conzar writes: In the small town of Cary, NC a home owner has spray painted his house with large bright red letters saying "Screwed By The Town of Cary". The town has stole part of the man's front yard in order to widen the road. After the construction was completed, it left a large hill in his once flat yard that produces a flood under his house when it rains. The man (Mr. Bowden) has asked the town to purchase his house; however, the town has only offered $5300 for compensation. The town has also threatened Mr. Bowden with large fines citing a town sign ordnance.

Is there no freedom left at home because its all gone to Iraq and Afghanistan?

This is clearly another case of too many mad scientists, and not enough hunchbacks.
