I went out and did some Christmas shopping for my family and for myself. Specifically, I bought a Voodoo5 5500 to enhance my addiction to games. I had avoided the GeForce2 GTS cards because of (many) reports of poor 2D quality, but sadly, this new Voodoo5 card has much lower 2D quality than my old Voodoo3 3000.
Still… All in the name of progress. I do seem to get much better frames with the Voodoo5, especially on games like Ultima IX or Omikron, and the FSAA and 32-bit texture support are very, very nice as well.
Other than that… Back to watching films. Ugh. Urgh. Urrrrgle.
