1801  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Desktop Thread 3/05 on: March 06, 2005, 10:44:49 PM
The style is called vector art, basically what you do is take a regular picture and out line it getting every little detail or no detail and then filling it in with different colors. Like the lady I got now the picture it was based off of was horrible it was blurry and bad but the vector artist took that really bad picture and made what my BG is, and  I think it is stunning.

That is a link to the vector art section in deviant art sorted by favorites so you get the best first. I think vectoring anything is kind of like taking a picture in black and white. Sometimes you get caught up in the detail of a picture but if you vector it it brings out a lot of other things you never saw before.

1804  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / PVR DVR - whatever you call 'em (a PC that acts like a TiVo) on: January 19, 2005, 02:41:38 AM
Interested in this now that I've heard about it more since Dish's DVRs are pretty shitty overall. Can you set up timers and have it record a show for a hole season even if the times change and the like. Or do you just do a 7:00 to 7:30 timer.

I mean does it search the name or is it time based. Tivo and UltimateTV were name based you could setup something and it would record it even if it changed times. Dish is now finally getting around to that. In a recent update with there DVRs. If we could find a program that lets us do 2 tuners and be able to set it up so it records the show so that it only records new shows throughout a season and when the season ends it stops recording. That sort of thing.

1811  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Windows 98 or Windows XP? on: December 31, 2004, 11:51:11 PM
All the spiffy affects in xp can be turned off and down for low end systems. The mininmum reqs for xp is 128meg i believe. Also if anti spyware I recommend this:

http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html

You just install and turn it on and it just runs in the background, it prevents all of the random spyware cookies that you get from the internet. I'm not sure about gator or installed spyware. This just prevents little unknown spyware things. you need adaware and spybot s&d to get rid of those. The only problem is that since it just sits there and does its thinkg I keep forgetting to update it. It needs and auto updater slywink


The firewall that comes with xp should be ok, you friend might get annoying with it later on. A good free one is zonealarm which i think you were thinking about. It is pretty easy you just need to set it up for him.

Sirius costs money tho, if you use winamp drazzil, I"m sure you can find exactly what your looking for at http://www.shoutcast.com/


Just try some of the them and see which ones are good and which aren't.
1813  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Flat Screen TV pros/cons on: December 25, 2004, 01:43:01 AM
You might want to take a look at the next generation of "micro displays" its like a rear projection unit but its only 16" deep.  Most have an LCD engine in them but you can find them with DLP or DILA. So the picture looks very good. Be prepared to replace a $300 lamp every 3000 hours. But that is the same for any type of projection unit , LCD or DILA or DLP.  Plasmas have been dropping in price with the introduction of large size LCD displays they are at a price sweet spot now if you want anything at the 42" size
If I was going to pick a unit I would go with the Sony Grand Wega 50 inch micro display. If you can find one with out the built in HD tunners you  can save $600 and its rated number 1 by consumer reports.


Hope that helps

1825  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / The IPod Banner on: November 28, 2004, 11:48:03 PM
The ipod banner, you have a bunch of ipods dancing accross the banner and you could win an ipod if you shoot one. One of those flash banner thingers.
1826  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / The IPod Banner on: November 28, 2004, 11:42:29 PM
Heres and interesting thing, see how many times you can shoot in between the ipods without acually shooting the ipod. I hear about 4 or 5 shots and I was able to do it for a little bit before I click one to many times and hit the ipod.


Vastily more entertaining than acually shooting the ipod.

[edit hole crap I thought I was in the off topic fortum, I'm so bored I'm shooting ipods and forgetting what forum I am in when I make a bs post.]

[edit 2 and I can't type.]

In trap town I got surprised buy a headcrab zombie dude, only have my grav gun out cause i was messing around earlier and low on health I start grabbing random things and chucking them at him. First grabbed a table and through it at him only shoved him back a bit. Grabbed crate...nothin... trying to find more stuff and grabbed a paint bucket which proceeded to make the redish plane zombie into a new eggshell white zombie. Just kinda stared at that one. finally stumbled upon a saw blade and proceeded to slice the zombie in half slywink
