Due to many PMs/emails over the course of the last week, I have decided to move the Tech Files to Obsidian. This has not been an easy decision, as I most grateful to Mistress for allowing the Tech Files to be at home at the Lair for the last several years. And now the latest update ...

Titan Quest is now up to version 1.15. A better link to the TQ patch would be this:

http://www.ironlore.com/patches.html

(ironlores page rather than THQ's, the latter of which is a mess to find things on)

Then a nit-pick. UFO: Aftershock is listed in the UFO franchise as turn-based strategy, when in fact it's not. It's real time with pause. I don't know what is more important, keeping franchises together or to have games correctly labeled.

And finally a few suggestions for more stuff to add:

Since it's apparently ok to list BitTorrent clients (Azureus is there) I'd like to recommend µTorrent (www.utorrent.com). Not quite as customizable as Azureus and not open source, but in exchange it uses a fraction of the resources Azureus does.

The Yahoo Widget engine (http://widgets.yahoo.com/), a small program that allows you to load widgets, useful gadgets for your computer. Basically the same as Samuraize I think.

GAIM (gaim.sourceforge.net) open source multi-protocol instant messenger. I prefer it over Trillian personally.

PopTray, a pop3 mail-checker and notifier. (www.poptray.org)

Notepad2 a notepad replacement with many more options than the standard version, but still quick to start and light on resources. (http://www.flos-free...h/notepad2.html)

Thanks so much Spider!

Re: UFO - it's never an easy solution, but in this instance keeping the franchise together seems more important.
