The Manual also allows you to do flat-land tricks.  Simply start a manual (up-down, down-up) and then while you are manualing you can hit combinations of the grab, grind, and flip buttons to do tricks like handstands and etc.  Its a very easy way to rack up serious points, especially after a huge ramp trick.

I have a double speed CD that requires its own ISA card, and its been running on my 486 since 1994.  So it really depends on your use (i.e. time using it, temperature, dust, etc.)

Quote from: "CeeKay"

Multiplayer is dead.  staked.  doused with holy water and crucified.   pushing up daisies.  kicked the bucket.   shuffled off this mortal coil.  swimming with the fishes.  gone the way of the dodo.   kaput.  finito.  

It is a Vampire game.  Maybe multiplayer will rise from the dead in a form of a patch.
487  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Who Knew?: Pokemon is Fun on: October 14, 2004, 07:22:31 AM
Pokemon is strangely addictive.  Its simple, yet still has a lot of depth and choice.  I've been a fan since Red and Blue.

BTW, your pokemon will evolve on their own.  You can play things like the Thunderstone (which will evolve an electric pokemon like Pikachu). Using those will provide an early burst of power, but will also seriously cripple your pokemon in the end.  You should level your pokemon up the hard way, using things like candy to level will increase your power, but only at a fraction of what a real level-up would.

The reason I said that was at the Toys'r'us in Cedar Rapids when I went to the last sale (or maybe the one before that) there was a list printed out (it looked corporate on glossy print-ad paper) that had different games on it.  The sale only worked for games that were listed on the paper.  Maybe its different based on region.

I also recall that they had increased the price of some of the older games and included them on the list, too.

Oh yeah. The demo was awesome, but the game blew because of the bugs. They had a 20MB patch or something like that after it was released. That was fun on my 28.8.  :?
Oh god yes - the demo was wonderful, and I remember how fun it was playing the multiplayer map "behind zee bookcase" in that demo.

I wanted to shoot myself with that demo.  I spent HOURS downloading it with my 33.6k modem.  And in the end, it was worthless.  The game itself was mildly fun with some really cheesy graphics.  The expansion was better especially with vehicle multiplayer.

BTW, Ritual is having a 6th anniversary SIN CTF game on their server ( on October 29th where you can play against Levelord and the rest of the Ritual crew.

Re: TIVO, is there no way to hook it to a router to update?  I have no land line.

Offically the initial setup must be done over the phone.  Then after the initial setup, you can use the network to update if you have a USB network adapter.  But there is a way on some newer machines to force it, to do the initial update over the network.

501  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / How to create a restore disk? on: October 13, 2004, 09:35:13 PM
The easiest way to do what you're asking is to create a ghost image of the drive when it is clean.  You could do it several ways:

The easiest would be to use Ghost to create the image on several CDs or another disk drive and then restore from those cds or another hard disk.  

You could also do a base install and then ZIP that install, put it on a bootable DVD that has some sort of autoexecuting batch files that has commands to format the drive and then unzip the zip file onto the disk.

Using the XP disk as mentioned before is good, but drivers could be a problem, especially obscure hardware drivers.  If her computer only has standard hardware, then you would be good to go with that if she is behind a router.  If she isn't, then I would worry about outside intrusion.  An unpatched XP setup only takes an average of 20 minutes to become infected from the time it is connected to the internet.

I've been a happy tivo-er for about 2 years now.  Love it and wouldn't go back to regular television/vcr combo.  question though?  what's the "lifetime basic tivo" service you mentioned?  I thought there was only one tivo service for subscribers?  (granted, i haven't looked tivo's pricing plans since I got it)

The "basic Tivo" thing comes with DVD/Tivo combo devices - it's not available for standalone Tivo units, and honestly, it's pretty useless.  Only three days of program info, no season passes, no smart recording options, etc.

Yeah.  All the Tivo basic package is I have found out is a digital vcr.  You tell it exactly when to record and it does.  It does do stuff like pause and rewind Live TV.  You can hit record during a show and it will record the next 30 minute segment.  It would be decent for a secondary Tivo device, especially if you use the sharing option from the Home Media stuff.

You do get Plus free for 45 days minus the Home Media stuff, so I've been using that.  Its already caught some things for me that I didn't even realize where on.  This morning it recorded an I Love Lucy show and I thought it was crazy.  But it ended up that it got it from my Marx brothers wishlist and Harpo Marx was a special guest on the show.  Nice.

School me, has anyone other than a Dem or Rep ever pulled more than 5% of the vote?  Its never more than those two in the debates really...I just can't believe that these are my only two viable options. (and don't say Nader...the man doesn't use those new fangled PCs)

I heard from somebody who got their 'early voter' card to mail back that there are TEN people running for president. TEN people.

Maybe not ten, but it was at least 8 people. Short of the two and Nader, I hadn't heard of a single one of them. Why are they even trying? Just to give the US a 'choice'?

There are a couple of hundred "candidates" every election.  Most don't make it on the ballot and some aren't even eligible to be president.  There was a news segment on on a couple of months ago about a man who was running as the old Prohibition party candidate.  The entire party was his immediate family and a couple of friends.

So, I joined the Tivo club yesterday.  I picked up a Toshiba DVD player/80gb Tivo with component outputs for $80 at Bestbuy (after rebates).  I spent most of last night trying finding a place with a telephone outlet that I could use just to set the thing up.  I have it hooked up to my network now and that is working nicely.  I spent this evening flipping through channels hitting the thumbs up and thumbs down buttons trying to get better suggestions. (I wish that they had a onscreen tally of all the users that rate a particular show.)  

So far, I like it especially the pause function.  My player came with free lifetime Tivo Basic, but I'm using a 45-day free trial of Tivo Plus.  I'll probably end up paying for the service at the end of the trial.  I like the whole season pass/wish list thing.  Does anybody know how to record all the movies that appear on a certain channel?  I'd like to record all the movies that come on TNT and Comedy Central, but I don't want to pick them out one by one.

Unfortunately, Google usually only caches the first page of threads.  So that is all you're likely to get.  

The easiest way to find something in the cache is to reference a specific site.  You do that for gonegold by typing in:

So, to find that thread I simply typed in: 800mb morrowind

Then click on the cache link near the end of the result.  Its beside the Similar pages link.
