681  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Vanguard - free month for inactive accounts on: June 30, 2008, 03:41:23 PM
I started a paladin, with one of the human races.  Managed to get to level 8 adventuring and level 6 blacksmithing over the weekend.

Any other class that's fun to play?  I like a mixture of magic and melee, but must be able to solo well.
682  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Vanguard - free month for inactive accounts on: June 30, 2008, 06:12:28 AM
I'm playing this since I also got the free month.

So far, I'm enjoying it, even thinking about paying for a subscription.  I like the fact that crafting and adventuring are 2 separate levels.  Still trying to learn diplomacy.

I've been using mozy home, the free one, for a few months now. 2GB is a lot of space for backup for me and I'm not even at 1gb mark yet.

It's a little on the slow side if you back up a lot of data all at once but on a daily basis it's ok.  I set mine to back up at 4am every day on a few designated directories.  It has an option to back up your bookmarks too from your browsers, so if you have to reformat or reinstall, you won't lose your bookmarks.

If you want to try out the free one, use this URL and you'll get 256mb extra, free:

Quick peripherial question - since these phones support bluetooth, anyone ever tried to use a keyboard with it? (e.g. fold out bluetooth keyboard from Dell for their PDAs)

We use the iGo Stowaway bluetooth keyboards with some of our blackberries and they work fine.  There was a driver that needed to be installed but once that's in, the keyboard works like a charm.

My coworker uses a jawbone and swears by it.  My gf just got hers a couple of days ago and she said she likes it.  I haven't had the chance to play with it though.

I placed an order for the BlueAnt Z9 and should be here tomorrow.  I will update on how it is after I played around with it a bit.
687  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: And now - help me pick a phone! on: June 26, 2008, 05:42:06 PM
If your main concern is email, I'd go with BlackBerry.

I carry 2 phones with me, the blackberry curve (AT&T) is the work phone and HTC touch (unlocked on T-Mo) is my personal phone.

I like the blackberry for emails since the keyboard is tactile and I can type faster since I can feel the button presses and it pretty much works all over the world (boss and sales people have taken their blackberries to Japan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Brazil, Mexico, etc).  I can say that for work purposes, you can't go wrong with a blackberry.

I use T-Mobile for my personal and has been with them since 2003.  I have 0 complaint with them, good receptions in most places and great customer service.

I also use AT&T for work and they're also decent.  I also used to work for them way back before they merged with Cingular.

Phone selection for both companies are about the same.  Personally, I prefer T-Mobile.

I created a druid on Fennin Ro and restarted the game from scratch.  I can't seem to get back into it though  icon_cry

Good to know Kelethin, Qeynos and Blackburrow hasn't changed.  Those really brings back memories.

I created a character in Fenin Ro last night, name's Thoke.

When I log in, there was a little window that said that my account had over 400k failed login attempts since I closed it.  Holy cow!!

I didn't even get past the tutorial, was busy trying to get rid of spyware on my gf's pc.

I'm in although I may have to take it slow.

Last time I did some push ups (with an exercise ball to elevate my feet) I put a rib out of alignment and screwed up my shoulder.  I have no idea how that happened, lol.  Went to the chiropractor and got the rib and shoulder fixed but I think I may still need to go back to work on the shoulders some more.

So we'll see how I do.

So it's a game game, then?

Yeah, the guy created it in 30 days for a contest.  He's still supporting it though.

Found the website for it and he's there answering people's questions too.
704  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / MMORPG Tycoon on: June 17, 2008, 10:18:55 PM
Found this yesterday, it's a free game and the premise is just like what the title says, you're managing an MMORPG.

You have to create zones, place towns, roads, spawn points, adjust monster difficulty, pricing, etc.  All these while trying to keep your subscribers happy and make money at it.

Try it out, it's pretty interesting to kill time with.

They have some decent products, my best friend's mom swears by their products.

Their cleaning products are decent and works and supposedly all natural.

That said, yes, they are a pyramid scheme, but at least they have decent stuff.

Sorry to hear that you got laid off but that does sound like a decent severance package.

I agree with everyone when they said the commute is horrendous.  I did a 1.5-2 hours commute for a year and I was glad when I switched jobs.

Good luck with the job search!

Anyone watching this series?  I'm currently on the laptop in the TV room watching it.  I love it!!  I'm a big space program buff, so this series is a treat for me.  Even thinking about purchasing the dvd set (wishing I have Blu-ray though).

714  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: BSODs on: June 07, 2008, 05:09:10 PM
I'm running an AGP x1950pro, it's about time I overhaul my system.  I also have been using the high settings and just playing around with the advanced settings by turning off shadows, using shader 2.0, etc.  Read that in another post a while back.

The memory usage is probably what causes my BSODs as I only have 2gb memory on this system.

I've been playing CoD4, PotBS, Sins of a Solar Empire and the Witcher lately without any BSODs.  I'll try AoC again this weekend.

715  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: BSODs on: June 07, 2008, 06:39:30 AM
No overclock on this one, haven't done it since I built it.

Video card is fairly new, a few months old.

Same with power supply, it's an Antec SmartPower 500w, less than a year old.

Ran the memtest overnight and then some, I think it ran almost 24 hours since I left it running while I went work.

I haven't played Conan in about a week and no BSOD since then.  I've played other games and my system is back to being stable.  I'm still thinking that there's something with Age of Conan that just doesn't agree with my system, could be that memory leak.

I'm a certified open water diver with PADI but I haven't gone in a few years so I will definitely need a refresher course.

It does get expensive, but it was a lot of fun.

$15 to fill up my Ninja 250.  Gets about 57-60mpg and goes 100+mph tops.

A couple of months ago, it only cost me about $11 to fill the thing up.  icon_frown
720  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: BSODs on: June 02, 2008, 05:21:09 PM
Yup, drivers are all fully updated.

It's funny though, I didn't play Age of Conan at all this weekend due to work stuff and my pc haven't had the BSOD once.  I'm thinking it's tied to the game somehow.
