1  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [hl2]New complaint - why do I need the cd in the drive?! on: November 17, 2004, 01:37:00 AM
Because Vivendi Sucks Donkey Balls?
2  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / How are the Ipods? on: November 08, 2004, 10:28:50 PM
Love my Nomad Zen Xtra, but the choice is ultimately up to you. I don't think you can really go wrong with a Karma, Ipod or Zen..

Well, Based on both demos, MOV sucks the big one IMHO.
4  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / HL2 has no manual on: November 03, 2004, 06:21:26 PM
Yep. A few of the first games I bought that were not first party for my Atari 800 were in Zip Lock Bags. It was kinda a pac man clone, I think by Sierra..
5  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / HL2 has no manual on: November 03, 2004, 10:50:54 AM
Cheap. Not that a FPS absolutely needs one but basically schilling out to Prima to "Sell" your manual is low. Of course, this does not single out Valve. Seems like they're all doing it these days...
6  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Good & free AV software? on: November 03, 2004, 10:48:35 AM
I used to use AVG, but awhile back It seemed like I could never get thru to update. So, On someones suggestion on the old forum, I tried Avast! I like it alot better and it seems to offer a better feature set, even without the ability to schedule scans (That I can see).

Its free, updates itself with great frequency and the price is right.  Nortons is now way too bloated for my taste, at least in the AV Market. Ghost 9 OTOH, I <3 that , but of course that may be because its now basically driveimage pro smile
7  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / What dollar value do you put on an hour of entertainment? on: November 02, 2004, 01:53:54 AM
Quote from: "gameoverman"
I once spent $50 bucks in less than an hour at a strip club, I thought it was worth it in terms of entertainment value.


Ha. At one time I used to go drop a couple hundred at a clip. I'm glad I don't do that anymore...

Ghost Recon and its Mission Packs, Vietcong and Fist Alpha, Hidden And Dangerous 2 and Sabre Squadron.
12  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / How bout that new mustang? on: October 26, 2004, 02:36:00 AM
I loved my 85 GT. Still nothing like the Secondaries opening on that big 4 Barrel Carb. Congrats on the new ride Coop..

Dressing Well In The Service Industry. Hell Yes,  Nice Pants paired with either a Polo or a Shirt and Tie makes  the world of difference. Personal Hygeine goes without saying..
14  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Turtle Beach sound cards on: October 19, 2004, 09:57:07 AM
I'm no CL Fanboy, but I have no problems with my Live! 5.1 on my new Asus P4T533-C MB. Perfect! Now on my old Abit KT7 (Via Chipset) it was enough to make me want to stomp the card into dust...
15  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / The Community "Upgrade or not to upgrade" PC threa on: October 17, 2004, 02:54:23 AM
I had a chance at a really nice priced 9800 Pro but at the time the budget wouldn't shoulder the cost. I do like the card but I realize its not the fastest thing. Its not really let me down and I think its viable for a little while anyway. The DOOM3 Demo was definately playable at 1024 medium quality, and looked fantastic when it wasn't so damn dark slywink

Gotta get a monitor before anything tho, this one's days are numbered..

No, They need to be installed server side.
17  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / HL1 in Source not all it's cracked up to be on: October 17, 2004, 02:00:44 AM
I'll wait till GoGamer has the Import DVD and buy that. DoD source and HL1 Source probably wouldn't get more than a cursory glance from me anyway, and its not like there won't be a buttload of new mods for HL2 anyway.

And I like having the Media anyway slywink (And the imports usually come in a DVD Hardcase. I <3 those slywink
18  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Inkjet Printers on: October 17, 2004, 01:48:50 AM
Space is limited and I do need to print in color, so the laser would not be my first choice, I'm in a studio apartment  and don't have room for both. What I do like about the canons is the individual cartridges . My first inkjet was a Canon BJC600 smile

I'll take a look at the 960...
19  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / The Community "Upgrade or not to upgrade" PC threa on: October 17, 2004, 01:46:32 AM
Pentium 4 2.53
ASUS P4T533-C Mainboard
512MB PC1066 RDRAM (Samsung)
ATi Radeon 9600 Pro 128MB
SB Live 5.1
30GB IBM Deskstar and WD 80GB (8mb Cache)

I'm looking to play some of the newer games (Mainly Pacific Fighters and Brothers In Arms) but don't need them to be full eye candy, even on Medium I'll be happy)

I would like to go to a GB of RAM if I can find some matching RAM at a reasonable price) and would like to replace the IBM Drive with another WD 80 or larger.
20  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Inkjet Printers on: October 16, 2004, 10:46:18 PM
OK, My Lexmark Z51 is ticking me off, Had it for a few years and it simply doesn't impress me anymore. Getting sick of the expensive cartridge changes and less than stellar print quality.

Anyways, My ink is running low, and it would appear that I can upgrade to a better model printer for just a few bucks. In the latest Computer Shopper (Thanks GG Bargains Forum for the free sub slywink) They seem to like the Canon i560 and said it was reasonably priced, but I can't find it available anyplace. Anyone got reccomendations on a Sub-100 dollar inkjet thats pretty nice quality and is available?

PS. Don't bring HP into the thread slywink

22  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PC-PR] Codename: Panzers Ships to Retail on: October 16, 2004, 12:13:59 AM
Starforce issues notwithstanding, Soldiers : Heroes Of WW2 is the better game, but I did enjoy the demo.

I have installed (And use most of em)  AdBlock, Download Manager Tweak, IEView, FoxyTunes (Use that one in Thunderbird as well) , Smoothwheel, Tabbrowser Extensions, Bugmenot , All In One Gestures and Minimize to tray.

Based on this thread I think I'm going to try Right Click, Spellbound , Download Them All.

How can I block tubgirl BTW, I hate when that pops up in forums  :shock:

Wasn't aware of that, Thanks for the link. The verse I used I saw on a greeting card, and I didn't think much about it. :oops:

I won't use it again, now that I know. I didn't mean it in a mean or vindictive way, just picking on jpinard for talking to himself slywink
30  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I'm a fool. And a sucker. on: October 13, 2004, 10:54:24 PM
The silver option is very very tempting, but I have such a backlog its not funny. I'll probably pick up the import DVD version of the base game and not look back. The more I think about it the more I realize I'll never play most of the stuff included.

I always liked Powerquests Driveimage Pro I think it was, which I heard has been gobbled up by Norton and is more or less Ghost 9.0 now.

S'ok, I'm just getting my feet wet, Sent the PDF off to kinkos to print, and reading the official forums. Had to figure out earlier how to manually update punkbuster, was getting kicked. Ended up having to manually update it and entering something (?) in the console. What a PITA.

Of course that was on top of E&E training..  :roll:  ninja
