You guys know you can exchange settings and stuff w/ the team talk in the game, right?

This race is going to be very, very interesting... Monaco is a fucked up, tight track with short laps and really demanding on the cars... throw in the rain we've had off and on through the weekend and the prediction of more for the race... I have no idea how this is going to shake out!

Yes, I think why Team Toyota has been able to do consistantly well is becuase of building on each others results. But Monaco is going to be bad for us. Neither of us managed to get good feedback in our warmups.

SELL BABY.  SELL!!!!

FIRST OVERALL PICK HERE WE COME.

GO KINGS GO.

gellar

If we hadn't picked up Burke we'd already have locked the number one pick. I feel a little sorry for letting Matty go especially when we kept some road apples (I'm looking at you Blake, Miller and Garon) but overall I think we got more than should have from our trades.

docD


Agreed.  Part of me was hoping they'd play Fukufuji all year.  I do think Miller is underrated this year though.  He was terrible the past few years, but this year I'd call him our 2nd best D-man behind Lubo.

gellar

I'd put Miller #3 after Lubo and Sopel. The other kings D men are terrible. Norstrom and Blake are too slow to defend with the new rules. I still have a lot of love for Norstrom he was a good defender that anchored the Kings for years but age and the strike have caught up to him. Kings are going to need to pick up a couple top D men this off season if they want any chance at being competitive next year.

I'm calling it now:  Ryan Smyth - LA King next year.  Unless someone wants to outbid maybe $5 mil per for the guy, I can guarantee the Kings will gun hard after him.

He'd look damn fine on a line with Kopitar and O'Sullivan.

I think a Kopitar, Smyth, Frolov would be better. O'Sullivan hasn't proved he's ready to play on the first line yet.

Another win for Toyota! I'm pretty pleased with a fourth place. I made an error in setting my tires and when I pitted, I switched to intermediate tires. I'm still not quite sure what the best way is to set up tire changes, but I learned a lot. Looking forward to the next race and putting Toyota on the pole and winning again!

I start talking smack about the Kings being really bad and then they show up and play a pretty good game last night. Kopitar is going to be a really great player and I think O'Sullivan may also be but he's not ready to play at the NHL level yet. Give him another year and I think he'll be ready. I agree with you Gellar, this year is going to be really painful, hopefully next year we can compete for one of the lower playoff spots.

Quote from: corruptrelic on October 31, 2006, 07:04:45 PM

You don't have to pay $100 for the official adapter, you could always buy an opened box one off of Ebay for around $60 shipped.

Also any game wifi adapter (such as the linksys wireless g gaming adapter) should work on it, but the retail price of those also hovers around $100. (The wireless b one goes for a lot cheaper though.) Same deal though, check ebay and you should be able to pick one up for around $50 shipped. I haven't personally tired the wireless g adapter on my 360, but it worked fine on the PS2 (connects through the ethernet port) and doesn't require any drivers.

Just me personally, but I'd recommend the official 360 adapter. It connects right on the back of your 360, is small, doesn't require any drivers and doesn't need to be plugged into the wall. And at around $60 shipped, IMO, it's hard to go wrong with it.

As far as the intercooler, they're only $20 and I had been using one the entire time I had my 360, so I'd say yes it's a good investment as it helps cool down your 360 (just put your hand behind your 360 with it on and you'll see how good of a job it's doing) though there have been some very rare reports of people putting it on wrong and it burning up the connections, but if you follow the directions and put it on exactly as it says there shouldn't be any problems.

Thanks corruptrelic, my wife says I've maxed out my gaming budget but I'll take a look on ebay. Hopefully, I can convince her that $60 is acceptable.
116  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I just got an xbox 360, now I have questions on: October 31, 2006, 06:57:53 PM
I'm one of the cool kids now, I have an xbox 360! I hooked it up to my 42" TV but my wireless router is upstairs. So my first question is I really don't want to pay another $100 to get on Xbox live, can I use other network adapters? My other question is the sales person was pushing some external cooling unit. I know that the 360 tends to get hot and needs good ventalation but is it worth it to buy one of these coolers?

BTW, I have some good insurance tips..  Insure vehicles as "Pleasure" and not driven to or from work, and it saves $$$$ and you can just say you are laid off or something. 
There are more tricks, but you'll have to buy my book to find those out.   icon_wink

As someone who deals with auto insurers regularly I wouldn't do that. Insurers are happy to write your policy anyway you want it but if you have a major accident they will check to make sure that you are not driving to work in that vehicle. If you are they will deny your claim for false information. Morale of the story: Make sure you can prove what you are telling your insurance company.
