Submission + - Best of Two Player Tabletop Gaming?

An anonymous reader writes: My SO and I have been bitten by the tabletop gaming bug (blame Wil Wheaton for this). We've been looking specifically for games that are great with two people, but scale up well for when we do manage to organize gaming nights. So far, we've tried Struggle for Catan, but found it to be more miss than hit for two people. We also spent some time with Arkham Horror, but not near enough time to get to the endgame. Help us, Slashdot. You're our only hope.

Submission + - Google Summer of Code 2008 launched (google.com)

slipsuss writes: "Google has launched its 4th Summer of Code today. To quote the website, "Over the past three years, the program has brought together over 1500 students and 2000 mentors from 90 countries worldwide, all for the love of code." If you're a student, this is your big chance to get paid to write open-source software. It also looks fantastic on a resume: to the employer, it's like real job experience, and fully auditable as well!"

Submission + - Accellerated X drivers coming for PS3 Linux (ps2dev.org)

t0qer writes: Over at the PS2dev forums a hacker named Ironpeter has successfully managed to bypass the PS3's Hypervisor to gain direct access to it's Nvidia RSX GPU.

This is s first step and far from a complete working driver, but it seems as word of this spreads, more people are helping with the effort to hunt down the Hypervisors Fifo/Push buffer. It won't be long before we're playing tux racer on the PS3 in it's full OpenGL glory.
