I downloaded the Armin Van Burren Year End mix CD1 and 2 that was played on DI and if anybody likes trance it is the best of 2006. Great CDs.
Also found a new DJ, Andy Gregory, who has some good mixes also. Along with another new DJ, Iqy, who has some good vocal mixes if you're into that.

Mostly just been listening to the shows on DI.

I don't really know why I post in these though, nobody else likes trance music.

I liked the Transporter when he was actually transporting things, then it got into that whole Asian trade thing and just went downhill.

Didn't bother with 2.

I used to use fairly regular names, since my dog was a wolf and I liked wolves in general I did things like Shadowwolf and the like. But they became overused and I could never get them anymore. So I used to use Kybus which were one of the default races in the game Pax Imperia if anybody remembers that one, they were the warlike fighty guys. Anyway that was used once and I needed to come up with something else. So I looked up at my Dads and mine library of Sci Fi novels and I just combined 2 titles. I think one was Highlander and Skyfire and created SkyLander. And all the variations I use since some people are starting to use it also. But for the most part it's mine and wherever you see it it's most likely me. I use it in all my games and all that.

I've got it on Charter, I just noticed it rather recently. It's Universals HD channel apparently. I 'm sure it would come with any HD package that is out there.

Well for it's time duke had all the quirks. Duke was ahead of it's time, which made it so popular. It was gritty and vulgar and just plain fun, and really no game has been able to match what they did. The first parts of Prey at least the demo I played were kind of similar but it wasn't Duke. I mean what games besides Duke Nukem let you shrink something down and kill it by stomping on it with your foot? Or expand something until it exploded? Or let you mess around with pool balls and play pool in a map, or do the urinal thing.

I guess if you think about it, yeah the physics in Half Life 2 and Doom 3 and now everything with the new Unreal engine is totally awesome. But I don't think I've seen another game with a shrink gun, or have the the true Duke one liners. Or the 5 billion silly maps people made. The whole point of Duke is stupid fun, most games since then that are FPS are serious and just don't feel the same.

Hopefully that makes some sense.

Yeah, the shows they play seem kind of random but seeing the escape scene from the miniseries episode in HD was rather awesome. I've never heard them talking about retracting the pods since then.

There is now a chance to see both of these shows in full High Definition glory on The Universal Channel, I just watched the pilot episodes again along with The Train Job in high def.

So for people with High Def packages look for the Universal Channel smile

Making it a Cingular exclusive is a deal breaker, though.  Since it's quad band, I suppose it might be unlockable, but the question is how well will it work on another network (e.g., T-Mobile).

And how much it will cost w/o the 2 year plan.  I'm guessing it will add $200, at least.

Acually I don't think you can even buy it without a 2 year. If I understand what they are saying correctly.
1773  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: iPhone - Ridiculous Disappointment? on: January 10, 2007, 05:06:26 AM
I'll admit that the interface and all of the applications it can do is really slick. The tilt sensor and other things it can do sound really cool.

My issues are that it is 500 dollars with a 2 year contract that is just crazy for a phone. Really they shouldn't of named it an iPhone because that is what most people are going to see, and say the same thing as that. I'm sure that overall the phone part is really immaterial to everything else that it can do. It's a pocket mac that can make phone calls.

I think that the screen is going to get scratched all to hell unless it is made from some space age polimer that doesn't get scratched. It's going to get finger prints all over it and I don't think the entire thing being a touch screen is a great idea. I mean if it is made of the same thing as the nano is good luck keeping it looking pretty as you throw it in and grab it out of your pocket all the time. And you can't put a cover over it since you need to be able to use the touch screen, I think at best it is going a flip thing or something around it but you need to keep the screen free so no matter what it's going to get scratched.

I'm no mac fanboy, I think most of there stuff is overpriced and there are better products that do more out there. I'll say it looks cool and I'm curious what will happen after this first little iteration and what other companies do to combat it if it takes off.

If you aren't in a burning hurry, Dell has sales every so often, where they clear out some inventory.  This happens every few months, and can you save a few hundy.

A few hundred, easily. Got a steal on my custom built (as you can choose what you want in your laptop out of a set of parts via Dell) Inspiron E1505. Now, if I could only tell ATI to shove off and install the damned drivers they have for download (but refuse to install because 'I should get my drivers from the manufacturer' bullshit)...

For ATI mobility chips since standard catalyst drivers don't seem to work, give the Omega drivers a shot. They worked in my old laptop although I had nothing but trouble with ATI in that laptop so I went Nvidia this time around and it seems to be working fabulously.

All of the ATIs I saw on Dell said they used shared memory.

Well for anyone that watched it, I thought it was pretty good. Does Samuel L. Jackson do the voices for both the Afro Samurai and his little friend person? Overall if you like Samurai Champloo I'm sure you'll like Afro Samurai, granted it is a lot gorier.

1778  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Saw Appleseed for the first time... on: January 02, 2007, 09:06:40 PM
Well anime being Japanese you get some that overly "cutsie" I've found the good anime to have less "cutsiness" than the other kind. That the stories seem more serious and more to the point instead of the random cute character you get every now and then. Sometimes they can pull the cutsiness off without dragging down the entire movie or series with it. Like they were able to pull off Ed in Cowboy Bepop. Anime is really good with action and suspense but you get totally thrown out of it when a character just starts acting like a total idiot for no apparent reason. Full Metal Alchemist had this, overall it was a good series but when the cutsiness came in it just destroyed it for me.

That's my take on it anyway.

No no no, do NOT watch this unless you are _really_ into the anime scene, not doing drugs or alcohol, and happy with your romantic life.
It's a kewl series, but the creator himself had to spend a couple months in a mental institution upon completion.

I watch Evangelion on Adult Swim and I'll throw in that it is pretty...weird. Kinda cool, but, weird.

I truly recommend the Ghost in the Shell: Stand alone Complex. It is the series that was made after movie. The visuals are very nice and you get to know the characters better and there is a lot of action aid some episodes make you think also. Cowboy Bepop as was said before.

I'll throw in my hat for Samuai Champloo unless you want total Sci/Fi. I found it enjoyable, the animation style is different though. I think some of voices in Samurai Champloo are the same that were in Cowboy Bepop.

I shot my grandpas rifle he gave us, it's a 270 and I never shot one before so I didn't expect the total cannon like action of it. That thing is fun to shoot. Along with my colt python which is also a lot of fun to shot with the whole spin the revolver and snap it shut action. I have quite a few fun guns to shoot now smile

I am leaning more towrads what Kobra is saying, this seems that it will become very Johnny Mnenomic like. My grandmother has diabities and my dad is fighting it. Which means if I don't do something early I will most likely have it also. But since it seems like the industry for diabities is so huge I doubt much will come with this. I hope that since it is Canada that something might happen.

1786  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Eve Online on: December 11, 2006, 06:26:05 PM
Once you get out into 0.0 space the game pretty much changes. That is, what I think anyway, where the true fun begins. Because you aren't bound by anything anymore, you really do create what you want out there. I mean the SA, CA war down in the south lasted for over a year. Fighting over a region. The difference between EVE and other games is that you have a reason to fight. You are acually fighting over something instead of just grinding out honor points to get that omg supar knife. Instead you are fighting over territory and resources and the right to be out there. And you can lose stuff, you can lose a lot. What other MMO has that?

Even old New York was once New Amsterdam
Why they changed it I can't say
People just liked it better that way

So take me back to Constantinople
No, you can't go back to Constantinople
Been a long time gone, Constantinople
Why did Constantinople get the works
That's nobody's business but the Turks

1789  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Eve Online on: December 05, 2006, 05:11:05 PM
The contract system is the new escrow. I'd say it is now very similar to the AH in WoW. You can search for specific things, you can now do auctions on items. You can specify which region you want to search in. Also take out loans and a lot of other things that escrow could never do. Only issues is that you can't really sort after you searched and that if you search in another region you can't buy that until you get to that region.

The gang system got an overhaul also, the commanders can call out and tag targets. Tagging has been in the game for a bit acually.

Well one thing I'll say against him (sorta) is he doesn't have comments enabled on his blog.  Which is fine because it's a blog and not a forum.  But if his remarks do tend to get a bit skewed it might be nice to see some dialog between him and someone who sees things differently.

Well the thing with that is that there are a lot of spam bots for blogspot, so more often than not you get more spam than you do acual conversation.

1794  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Eve Online on: November 29, 2006, 06:05:01 PM
Well, if you remember. I was talking about instajumps in how they help so much. Well a big issue was that since bookmarks are stored on there servers and instajumps were used so much everyone had a ton of them, so they just put in a warp within 0km option. Basically you have instajumps everywhere. So instead of moving that stupid 15km everytime you warp you can just warp right to the gate and jump. Sadly the autopilot still does 15km but it's still a lot better than it was berfore you just need to do it manually.

It makes doing those rediculous 27 jump trips so much easier, instead of sitting there for 2 hours you can do it in 30 minutes, in a battleship.
1795  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Eve Online on: November 29, 2006, 06:45:27 AM
I'm still bouncing around, my tales of wo and all that down in 0.0. Now I'm back up in empire and Gen and I started a new corp. So if anyone that wants to start out and mess around with eve, always will to take on new people and answer questions and help out how we can smile. All the vet guys on here know how we work so. SkyLander ingame you can just send me a mail or I'll acually check this thread heh.

Revelations adds a bunch of stuff, some new battlehips and battlecruisers, the idea of Rigs which are basically implants for ships. Ditched the escrow system for this new contract system. I haven't really messed around with it that much. You can also reverse enigneer things in the hopes of getting a blueprint out of it so it helps with research a bit. Revamps the gang system turning it more into a true fleet with seperate wing commander and squads, when you get into major fleet combat. And a bunch of other little tweaks and so forth. Can finally just warp to 0 so travel time is greatly reduced and you don't have to worry about instajumps and bookmarks really anymore.  All I got off of the top of my after playing a few hours today.

So like I said I've been around eve for over 3 years now so shoot me a mail or whatever if you have any questions.

Don't buy off brand TVs. Main brands are always better. You are looking for HDMI ports and compenent inputs specifically and usually the off brand ones have signicantly less than regular TVs do. Safe bet is to just stick with Samsung at the moment they are still considered the best in TVs from what I understand.

Laptop should be fine, just make sure the resolution for the output matches the reslolution of the TV. Supported resolutions are usually in the manual.
