Ok, how about another hint. Ummm. Hmmm. In the movie the protagonist discovers that his wealthy wife is having an affair, he himself is not wealthy and he fears that she will leave him. So he concocts what he believes will be the perfect crime, the perfect muder.
282  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Movie Quote Game on: September 17, 2004, 04:31:06 PM
Nope. Though, it would seem to fit in that movie.

This movie is a good deal older than that one. It was "remade" not too long ago, and co-starred a certain soon-to-be king (not a real king slywink).

EDIT - Note: The quote did not appear in the remake.
283  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Movie Quote Game on: September 16, 2004, 09:58:55 PM

I'm quite certain I'm right, so I'll post up the next quote:

"What makes you think I'll agree?"

"For the same reason that a donkey with a stick behind him and a carrot in front always goes forwards and never backwards."

"...Tell me more about the carrot. "

I'm sure those lyrics have a much deeper meaning when you're on LSD.  No doubt LSD had a hand in their scribing.

If this is the same technology I'm thinking of it is supposed to have pretty fast accesses, too.

There are other medias I'd rather see take off, though.

EDIT: Yeah, I guess I should have clicked the link to find out. slywink It is what I was thinking of.

Glad I could help =)
288  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Um, Firefox. Wow. on: August 30, 2004, 12:28:39 AM
I second that emotion. Works like a charm.

I third it.

I tried using firefox for the first time but when I go to import my IE favorites and other settings, it crashes on me. Repeatedly

It says the following...

Runtime Error!
Program: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

abnormal program termination

I've installed it 2 times now

I have Firefox version 0.9

Have youtried  exporting the IE favorites to an HTML file? In IE: File > Import & Export.

Do that, then in Firefox goto Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks, from there goto File > Import, and in that dialog open the exported IE favorites HTML file.

Heya Michael. You've fought me before so you probably have a good idea of how this went down. I still can't figure out why he hit me in the ear....

I do indeed, you've got a wicked tight defense. All I know is I wouldn't want fight you for real (win or lose I wouldn't want to, LoL.) Bravo for not murdering this guy, though, especially after the wanker hit you in the ear.
291  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / My morning....ehhh....not so good. on: August 26, 2004, 06:35:54 PM
Wow, that is wicked lame. But hey, atleast you know all the training paid off!

"Hmm, the forward struct thing is a little weird. If you have a dynamic array or pointer to the struct then it doesn't complain. I'd say this is a bug. I'm surprised that it wasn't responded to. I'd post again."

That is an interesting one. Better than my last, anyway. Both are actually loosely related, though.

P.S. Mr. Burke, could you throw an e-mail my way? I don't think anything I've sent has gone through.

Never heard of it.

I saw an episode of "King of Queens" the other night, that was a really funny show.

298  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / WinXP Sucks. on: August 17, 2004, 09:55:07 PM

While your plugins sound nice (the JavaScript one especially), Mouse Gestures rules. After a bit of redesign on how it works, I run as follows:

Middle Mouse = open link in new Tab (a Firefox default)
Hold down RMB and move mouse up = next tab
Hold down RMB and move mouse up, then down = close tab

Those features right there allow me to open a bunch of interesting links in the background while I'm reading a news page or something, then just move the mouse to go to and close the additional tabs.

That does sound really cool. I guess my question is this: Is Mouse Gestures not compatible with the extension I posted, or something?
299  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / WinXP Sucks. on: August 17, 2004, 05:36:25 PM
A nice little plugin, but I'll stick with Adblock and Mouse Gestures (both available on the main Extension link inside your browser). I haven't visited any pages that are non-IE only which need to be spoofed by something like this.

I never even use the spoofer. I use

Images Checkbox
Colors Checkbox (ALOT, man is this thing nice to have)
JavaScript Checkbox (You think you're resizing my window? I don't)
New Tab Button
Kill Flash Button

I love being able to turn all that stuff on and off so easily. I dunno, maybe Mouse Gestures lets you do all that stuff to?

this one is also hand for those times when I HAVE to use IE
300  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / WinXP Sucks. on: August 17, 2004, 07:33:18 AM
Oh spit. I forgot I'd replied to this. (Sorry)

Well, no sense in my adding anything. You guys have seemed to work everything out.

It looks like the consensus is that Mozilla Firefox is indeed king of compliance.  Glad to hear there hasn't been a regression. I still work with CSS and Javascript and all that on occasion, but I haven't really followed the W3 or the browser war for a while.

BTW, Firefox/Mozilla users, you should get this badboy: Bloody brilliant little extension.
301  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GBA games worth looking forward to on: August 15, 2004, 09:46:57 PM
Soul Blazer owns. I still play that one once in a while.
302  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / WinXP Sucks. on: August 15, 2004, 05:34:02 AM
but since Mozilla doesn't even follow the w3 HTML / CSS requirements, it starts out as flawed.

You can't be serious. Two years ago when I was still in the W3 support "loop" Mozilla was owning IE as far as standards compliancy goes. Not only did it implement more standard features than IE, itimplemented most of them correctly)

I find it hard to believe that anything NEW from Mozilla is less compliant than older Mozilla technology (let alone IE).

EDIT: P.S. Not saying it isn't possible, but I do find it rather hard to swallow.

As it stands I'm using both Firefox and IE6 / w SP2 and can balance out what I need. It's workable, but not ideal.

You have to use IE sometimes. Too many sites use IE's proprietary "extensions", and/or "legacy"(read: bad) "code".
303  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Doom 3 Xbox or PC? on: August 06, 2004, 07:03:16 AM
I'm sitting with 1gig on a 3.0Ghz 800fsb P4 and an ATI 9800pro (128MB,not 256). Unpacking the pk4 files and changing the one cache to 256MB makes the Ultra @1024 playable with the occasional hiccup. runs at a solid 30fps and upwards of 60, depending on the action.

On Ultra? Very cool.

There is some inventive stuff in the game and the detail is amazing, but the game itself isn't worth the price tag at this point. (hence the mod comment earlier).

Yeah, I'm gonna wait for the price to drop to the high 30s/mid 40s. I never pay 50+ dollars for a  game (before tax, I mean)

I think I'd prefer playing co-op mode.

The mods. Once they start coming you'll remember why you went with the PC version slywink
304  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Doom 3 Xbox or PC? on: August 06, 2004, 05:09:06 AM
Personally I am very happy to have a (hopefully) solid single player game. If I want multiplayer I have UT2k4. I am always terrified that everything will become multiplayer only.

My sentiments exactly. Besides if UT2K4 isn't your thing, Ravensoft is working on Quake 4, surely that will have a bigger focus on Multiplayer

I knew that 2GB of RAM would come in handy sooner or later!

Muahahahaha! I only have one gig, but judging by the posts that should be more than enough. Hell I could probably spare 512MB.

Many thanks for the link, Mr. Burke.
305  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Holiday sequels that will suck on: August 06, 2004, 03:02:04 AM
LoTR: The Third Age is a very different beast. It is an RPG and EGM's cover story this month on it actually got me pretty excited to see the game in action. This is not a straight action game.

That does change things a bit. Honestly, though, I can't really get excited by much of anything EA outputs.

You forgot some other sequels from Sony: Sly 2, Jak 3 and Ratchet and Clank 3. I think it would difficult to say those won't be of a higher quality than your standard sequel.

Sly Cooper 2: fairly interested.
R&C: Abstain. Never played the first two.
Jak III: For the love of God, no more.
306  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Holiday sequels that will suck on: August 05, 2004, 10:37:40 PM
VJ2 - I kind of agree. It is really too soon for a sequel to this. I had a blast with the first, but I'd like a little more time to start itching for a second.

PoP2 - Absolutely agree. Way I see it, they should just hand this franchise off to RockStar  :roll:  I can't tell you how disappointed I am in this game so far.

LotR: TTA - Agreed. I've had my fill of EA's LotR hack-and-slash/

MP2 - Disagree. I really like the story of the first MP and I'm very much looking forward to the new additions in story and especially gameplay.

It's also depressing to see that of the 20 or so holiday titles that I'm mildly to strongly interested in, only two of them aren't sequels or licensed properties (Phantom Brave and Fable). Hopefully this isn't a portent of the future of the video game industry.

Phantom Brave is a sequel. Unless you don't consider each Final Fantasy a sequel the one before.
307  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Review Discussion: Tales of Symphonia on: July 31, 2004, 04:50:15 PM
FFX, bah. Square lost their imagination and simple 'awe' of playing a FF game at number 6, personally. They regained some things in my eyes with FF9, but other than that, I haven't been impressed at all with a Final Fantasy title in ages.

Amen, brutha.

I'm torn... I was sure I would get it for PC initially, but the coop is tempting... on the other hand user mods are just as tempting.

I can't justify buying it twice, though. Hehe.

Nope, that is world wide kids...huzzah!

Huzzah! This is gonna be sweet. I just hope I have enough horsepower.

The original DOOM still makes me jump, I better put all my extra points into constitution biggrin

Can't wait to see some user mods come out, that should be quite interesting. I'd like to see a game like Wheel of Time running on the DOOM III engine, too.
314  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / DOOOOOM 3 Gold! on: July 14, 2004, 11:13:28 PM
DOOM III is due out in a matter of days? Or is that just for you reviewer types?

316  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Worlds of Warcraft - An Introspective on: July 12, 2004, 07:46:00 PM

Thanks for the info =)

WoW has basically taken over my PC time, as it's absolutely nothing like a level-grind like ALL the other MMOs I've played (EQ, DAoC, AO, SB, SWG), as there's so much to do other than just killing for experience (crafting, herb collecting, fishing, general chatting, wandering).


Man, it is sounding more and more promising. I wish I could have gotten in on the Beta Test =D
317  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Worlds of Warcraft - An Introspective on: July 12, 2004, 07:18:45 PM
The guy who created SDL is working on this game. He is really cool too, I see him helping people with SDL all the time on the SDL NG.

WoW is the first MMO game I've ever been interested in. Blizzard and its have been nearly flawless, so I expect great things from WoW, and judging by this short preview it is going to deliver.

Mr. Burke, do you, by any chance, know what the monthly fee is going to be?
318  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / What would you do if there were no video games? on: July 10, 2004, 06:12:59 PM
Belgedin knows what I'd do if there were no video games, I'd go back to teaching Martial Arts.

Hehe, I still remember the kicking drills you ran. Those were great, except on Mondays when there were only little kids to work with. Nothing like having to kick below knee level  :lol:

I wonder if I'm the only one that wanted to rip somones spine out after sparring and intone, "Fatality" ... ::coughs::

As odd as it sounds, I actually miss reading. I used to read so much more, but with so many distractions it's difficult to stick with it. It's hard to pull away for some quiet reading time. I still read, but I have such a backlog I doubt I will ever catch up. I simply need to prioritize better...

I do a ton of technical reading... I think it has been a good seven months since I read any sci-fi or fantasy =\ Last book I read was Fire Bringer by David-Clement Davies. Great book.
319  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / What would you do if there were no video games? on: July 10, 2004, 03:16:28 AM
