Yeah I get the feeling that Obabma is almost embarrasingly naive about the way things really work in Washington.  But then again so are alot of the voters.  icon_wink

I think that's part of the reason why he won Iowa.  People are tired of politic as usual

i really hate the ones who rap during a match.  not only are they coming off as the biggest douches for clogging up useful team talking, but they are horrible rappers with no rhyming or lyrical ability.   

I agree if there lyrical flow was tight I wouldn't mind a little rapping, but damn most are tone death and have no rhyming ability whatsoever     Tongue

Yeah, don't let it bother you.  Seriously, I've been called the N word a few times when I'm playing public matches. I don't let it bother me.  I usually mute the person and keep playing.

The auto update from the splash screen you mean?  No, but it just brought me to the GalCiv2 sight anyway without automatically doing anything.  Is there something else that auto updates?

When you installed GalCiv 2 it should have installed something called Stardock Central.  You should update the game using Stardock Central

Keep in mind what Arkon said:  "Having 1/10th the # of online users helps out a lot for PSN..."

Very true indeed.

That is true.

So is the fact that PSN is currently normal and 100% up and running.  I was making sure multi-console owners were aware, so they could plan accordingly on this Saturday night of a long holiday weekend.

That's a fairly disingenous statement. You posted that because you're a fan of Sony and you wanted to get a dig in at Microsoft. Other then being kinda annoying, there's nothing wrong with it so just admit it.

PSN network is 100% free and 100% running currently, just got done playing UT3 and Warhawk online on lag-free servers.

Just a heads-up for those who need to play games online right now.

While I'm sadden to hear of her death my main concern is who has thier finger on the button in Pakistan.  I don't think anyone wants a radical Islamic group being in control of over 70 nuclear missles. 

Pakistan and India can barely stand each other now.  Who knows what will happen if a trigger happy Jihadist government comes to power in that region.   

No worries, now Musharraf can just declare martial law.  The Bush family prefers dealing with dictators anyway.

You didn't honestly think they wanted Pakistan to be a democracy, did you?


Honestly, I don't know.  I'm not a fan of our current President , but I think his main concern is about stability in that region.  Just off the top of my head of the Nuclear powered nations are

Pakistan
India
China
Turkey
Russia
Israel

Now while he should be promoting Democracy he also has to look towards stability in the region.  If you have any type of Nuclear exchange in that region how long would it be til a heavy weight like China or Russia or heaven forbid Israel getting involved.  

So yeah, while I dislike Bush propping up a Dictator like Musharaff (sp) he is probably much better than any other alternative in that region

I pulled the trigger on STALKER last night.   Looking into the mod community now and it seems you need to do some modding of the mod to get it to work with steam version.  Not sure I want to mess around with mods to get them to work


Guess I'll just play the vanilla version of STALKER

I picked it up as well.  What I read on the Steam Forums is that Mods will work, but you have to do some modding of the mod to get it to work with the Steam version of STALKER.  If you try it can you let me know how it turned out

BTW regarding ATB's interesting math antics... the higher the numbers get the easier it seems to get a lower k/d.  If you have a round that you break even, it can actually lower your k/d % since the ratio has changed. 

Well..yeah. Anytime you are over or under a 1.0 K/D ratio exactly, anytime you finish exactly 1:1 and break even your ratio will change...


Bah, with the k/d ratio.  I'm there to catch bullet from hitting Kato, Harkonis and Hellspawn  thumbsup  icon_biggrin

Can you use the Digital Download version of the new beta with the physical copy you brought from a brick and mortar
You found a B$M which sells this for a decent price? Can't find it on Eb, GS, CC, or BB website.

I consider Amazon where I got the Gold Edition for 29.99 a brick & mortar since I get the physical media.  That's the best I've seen so far

I probably wouldn't have, but i got a $300 HDDVD player for $99 during the frenzy (BB ran out and upgraded me for free). Now i'm buying HD movies because i can't stand SD DVD anymore. I do see the difference on my new 65 HDTV.

And this is exactly why I'm just not ready to jump into either format just yet.  I don't want to end up with a betamax player that will eventually just end up collecting dust.
