Got the book off deepdiscount, took off and read it. Disappointing.....

Spoiler for Hiden:
Turns out that Snape had an affair with Lilly and is really Harry's Dad. It also seems that Hermonie is Harry's sister and that she was addopted by the Muggles to hide her, which explains where she gets her talent from. Ron hooks up with Hermonie and hint on marraige. Padfoot comes back as a ghost, as does Dumbledore and they tell Harry that he must defeat Snape and Voldemort. Harry feels sorry for Snape and what his father did to him and tries to win Snape back over. At the end, when Voldemort is about to finally kill Harry, Snape intercepts the spell just as he hits Voldermort with one and they both die. Meanwhile, Ron and Hermonie conjur up a large pack of ferrets and use them to defeat all the Death Eaters. At the end, Snape comes back as a ghost with Dumbledore and Padfoot, while the Weasly twins shoot off fireworks.....

TE: So what is the actual lawsuit - in layman's terms?

RN: The actual lawsuit is Hernandez v. IGE. We filed it in Miami, where IGE has offices. In layman's terms, the core of the complaint is a consumer class action for unfair trade practices. Guys like Tony [Hernandez, the plaintiff] have paid their $15 for some entertainment, and IGE is polluting that entertainment. It's kind of like, if someone pays for a ticket to go see a movie, and if someone else comes in behind them and kicks their seat, you can get them to stop doing that. We're just trying to get IGE to stop kicking the seats. This is not unlike other consumer complaints where someone has paid for a service, and someone else is interfering with it. It's really very simple.

I think they can counter analogize with MMOG are more like a buffet. We each paid to get in and eat all we can. You can't sue the people who decide to eat 3 times their body weight.

As for the C&C places, I feel that it lowers crime because most criminals prey on the weak. If there is a high likelyhood that their victim may also be carrying a firearm, they may think twice about it.

Also, won't we all feel silly when we find out the constitution had a typo and it really says the right to bare arms?

But then the jet plane comes in and blows shit up and I get all happy again in that special way. What can I say? The power of the American military makes me jump for joy.

It looks like the Military is the "bad guy" though since it seems they are shooting at McClain...

WoW never had this. Well, there was a little symbol that pops up when you're near a quest turn in, but nothing that directly guided you. And I never played SWG, so who knows.
Really? I haven't played for a while, but for some reason I remember little dots on the outer ring of the map or something. Maybe I am thinking of a different game?

Ouch. Gonna suck to be you when everything goes completely digital in about 3 more years, assuming they stay on schedule this time.

Once again I'll chime in for the dlink 5300 (or the 5100 if you dont want the wireless). It's definitely done a standup job for me, although if you want to explore the custom firmwares, you're probably better off going with something like the linksys.

Another alternative would be to dedicate a box and run something like http://m0n0.ch/wall/ ... I'm thinking this would be the ultimate in control for your network, but the most difficult to setup. I have no experience here, your mileage may very biggrin

Atomic

Yeah, even though I have an HDTV, I kinda disagree with the government forcing it on everyone... but hopefully by then there we be a cheaper solution....

As for the dlink 5300, how many spots does it give for Port forwarding? That is my only problem with the linksys. I have thought about setting up a PC based router, but it is more likely for an old pc to die than it is for a "regular" router.
1299  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Router help on: March 30, 2007, 12:03:48 AM
you only get one IP from cable (and most home providers) so a router is a must.

As for FIOS, I wanted an all in one solution (TV, Internet and phone). FIOS does offer this BUT, for the TV part you need a box on every receiver/TV/VCR/TIVO/etc... if you want to get anything other than the broadcast channels (CBS, NBC, ABC, etc..)... No Sci-Fi, Cartoon network, etc.. without a box. They also charge you for the boxes. I added it up and I would need about 11-12 boxes!! (2 TIVO's, a media center with 3 tuners, 5 TV's, 3 VCR's, etc...) With cable, I can get everything except the paid channels (MAX, TMC, etc) which I don't subscribe to anyway, without a box. That made the choice easy. If they had given me the boxes for free I might have considered it, but even then it would have been a REAL pain for configuration.

The only thing I really need is more port forwarding options. I have run out due to multiple PC's with multiple programs. When I had Verizon FIOS, the router they had was pretty much unlimited, but since I had to turn that in when I switched back to cable, I am using my Linksys. If I could find a new decent router with unlimited port forwards for around $100 I would probably get one. It's not important enough for me to spend $200+ on though.

If you're a founder, and you choose the $200 option, you're saying that you expect to be playing the game for at least 20 months (at $9.99 a month). 

If you think you'd like that, and can pull the trigger (unfortunately, I can't), it's a good deal.
Well, I picked up the pre-order today. I don't think I can actually sign up until the final version so that gives me a month to see if me or my son like the game at all.

I wasn't going to get this as I don't have a lot of time and didn't really want another monthly fee, however, when I signed up for the open beta, I found out anbout the Founder's option that is $199 Lifetime. The thing is though, I can't really find any details on this or if there is a "catch" or anything. Even if I don't play too often, having a lifetime subscription means I don't need to worry about monthly payments if this is actually what it is. Has anyone signed up for this and when do you actually get this option?

Couple of things.....

1) I really liked this episode. For some reason I particularly liked Lee's speech. I also liked the ending with the song in space.
2) We don't really know that they are Cylons as we know them. Maybe they are (along with Starbuck), but my first thought is the Lords of Light. Perhaps that's actually what they are, but they all decended back to human form as babies or whatever and now that they are nearing the nebula, their true forms are starting to come out. Even though the Chief says they are Cylons, it seems more like he is just guessing as they have no other explanation. (and actually, I think the President may be a Cylon, which could explain the shared dream).
3) Guilty or Not Guilty, I think Baltar is pretty much screwed....
4) 2008? WTF?
5) After reading the interview...
5A) BSG is getting low ratings? I thought it was the opposite?

Spoiler for Hiden:
It is interesting to note that in another of Karen Traviss' books, "Bloodlines", as an aged Boba Fett searches for a way to extend his life, he hears of a clone who claims to be a Commando from the Old Republic. It could be that this is one of the original clone commandos who found a way to extend their normally twenty year life span. The book ends with Boba going after the said Commando to find a way to save his own deteroriating cloned body.

The lifespan in this spoiler seems much more in line with the rest of the EU literature, but still is a bit of a departure from what I had understood-that'll learn me to leave bloodlines sitting unread on the shelf right? smile

I recall reading the books with Grand Admiral Thrawn, and the Emperor's dislike of non-humans was mentioned, but I read them so long ago the details are hard to recall.  Anyone still reading the post-OT books?
Heh, like three posts ago I told you I did, and told you that they mention the Emperor's xenophobism many, many times. Its clearly the official Star Wars line on this, although as someone mentioned I am sure the many, many clones left over also contributed to the uniform look.

Remember though, the clones had limited lifespans. They weren't supposed to age at the normal rate, so in a few years, they would have needed to replace most of them. This means that the empire most likely went out of their way to recruit only/mainly humans rather than try to fill the positions as quickly as possible with anyone.



This is somewhat incorrect as well. The cloning process only accelerated their growth to a certain age, not through out the lifespan of the clones. It is commonly acknowledged in SW EU literature that clones served in the Imperial military during the time of the movies-mainly because the Emperor maintained cloning facilities to help fill storm trooper ranks (which were mainly filled by regular humans-as I stated above several times, on the orders of the Emperor himself-its not correct to label the xenophobism as a necessarily Empire-wide held belief).
I have to double check, but I believe that the latest SW book, Legacy of the Force: Bloodlines,
Spoiler for Hiden:
elaborates on this and specifically mentions the accelerated aging. In it, Boba Fett is dying, seemingly due to him being a clone, albeit a non-accelerated clone, and he mentions how none of the Clone troopers survived and that they were only supposed to have, I believe, 5 year life spans or something. I'll look it up and confirm it.

I recently upgraded my system and loaded Vista. For some reason, Vista doesn't see all of my memory. I have 4GB which is seen during POST but Vista only sees around 3GB.
I am using a BFG motherboard with an Intel Dual Core CPU. MB has latest BIOS.

Yeah, it's because of memory reserved by the motherboard chipset.  It's not specific to Windows (any other OS on that motherboard would have the same 'problem').  The chipset specs for that motherboard may tell you how much is held in reserve.  Some of the primary purposes for the IO reservations:  BIOS, PCI bus (including bridges, etc), and and PCI Express support.  PCI Express will use at least 256mb.

Is this an x86 or x64 box?  We should look up the chipset to confirm the manufacturer's expectations.
Prior to this though, I had 2GB RAM (All other specs were the same). Windows reported the whole 2GB. Now I have 4GB and Windows shows 2814MB...I added 2GB and gained only 700MB (approx)
