Hey, I didn't even know what a Blackberry Pi was before this (have an old Tracfone), but it looks pretty cool. Broadcom released the full documentation and graphic stack source code under a BSD license for the VideoCore IV Graphics core. The contest is you get Q3A to run @ 1920x1080, 20fps min, on this core on a Blackberry Pi. For full details read the rules page and to read the article check it out here.
Thanks to John Carmak's Twitter account for letting me know about this.

However, they are staggering the registration this year. Long story short, they are not giving people free sign-ups for the BYOC, you either pay for one or win one. General admission is still free. A bit of a bummer as (last I remember) BYOC has always been free. Be sure to keep an eye on the QuakeCon site, Twitter & Facebook. Click “Read More” to see the full press release and the details.

On Func_Msgboard digs posted about a new map he's made named RJ Zone. It gets it's name from the fact you need to rocket jump a lot to complete the map. He says it needs an engine with expanded limits, recommends an engine with transparent slime and that you before the boss battle, she's hard. Player comments say it's also dark. :)

Doom3World has been down for several days. I e-mailed BNA, the man who host the site and he said a DOS attack took down the server. His host is currently replacing the server with more secure equipment/software so it should be back up next week. He assures me all your passwords are encrypted, but it is wise to change passwords on other sites if you used the same one as D3W.

In other news, I've switched from WinXP to Linux for my main desktop. This update was done completely on Linux. If there are issues with the videos (or anything else) please let me know.
