4161  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / The Ken Jennings Thread on: October 13, 2004, 01:27:22 AM
tonight's show was pretty good...although ken still had another runaway win.  they had a great category titled "Tricky Questions" and stumped everyone with the first clue...

The total number of each animal that Moses took on the ark

One of the other contestants said 2 and got it wrong...then ken rang in with "one of each" and was wrong as well.  everyone felt a little stupid when alex pointed out that the answer was zero...noah took animals on the ark, not moses biggrin
4162  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Microsoft .Net question(log in) on: October 12, 2004, 11:18:03 PM
there is an even easier way to fix this than using TweakUI...although i do think that every WinXP user should have TweakUI available for all the other great things it can do...

for some reason, when you install the .NET, the generic "Guest" account is automatically activate.  the result is that people who have previously only had a single account that logs on automatically start seeing the login screen.  the solution?  you can either use a utility like TweakUI to set automatic logon for your usual account, or you can go to 'User Accounts' in the Control Panel and turn off the 'Guest' account (click on 'Guest' under "Pick an account to change," then click on "Turn off the Guest account").  

both methods work, but disabling the Guest account gets to the root of the problem, while setting an automatic logon just gets you around it.

all the server info is at Zaxxon's UT Server Stats page...complete with a real-time list of who's playing, and logs of every match played since the demo was first released Cool

zaxxon...just a little thought about the server/stats...
is there a way to list all the mods/maps currently in use somewhere on the stats page?  that info might be worthy of a link somewhere that isn't dependent on a forum post...if it's not too much trouble...

Who the hell came up with this Columbus day stuff?  Most of us don't get the day off, but God forbid we try to mail something or do some banking.

i've been working at the VA hospital in Indianapolis this month, so i got the day off.  sometimes working at a government facility has its advantages Cool
4167  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / DSL Recommendations that aren't Roadrunner on: October 11, 2004, 05:57:22 PM
i've been with SBC/Yahoo! for almost a year and a half now...no real complaints so far.  my service has been consistent and you'll have a hard time beating the price...i pay $29.95/month, but the most recent deal is $26.95 i think.  i've had a few billing issues when i started and renewed my service, but they were actually pretty good about getting things worked out when i contacted them.

looks great...very nice work  thumbsup

one small comment though...
the white text on silver bars can be a little hard to read if the text is small.  for an example, look at the last silver bar at the bottom of a thread...you can barely see the words "Display posts from previous" before the option boxes.  that's a very minor issue though...otherwise a great theme.  thanks mike!

Bah I just uninstalled it awhile ago when you guys were playing after the new edition content was released.

you uninstalled UT?  my god man...what were you thinking??? biggrin

i don't think i've ever uninstalled any version of UT...only time i've not had it installed since i got the original was short bits of time right after a reformat.  personally, i don't even know why they include an uninstall with the games.

UT...my own personal form of crack

4173  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Are you a dvd addict? on: October 10, 2004, 05:15:18 PM
while i don't think i've reached "addict" status yet, i do have a fairly rapidly growing collection.  currently, i have about 50 movies, a few music DVDs, and have collected the Transformers, Beast Wars, and Invader Zim TV shows.  i guess collecting complete seasons of a TV show might qualify someone as an addict of some sort Cool

my Invader Zim collection will be complete this Tuesday when the third and final disc is available...makes me want to sing the Doom song  biggrin

a shot from the opening cinematic to one of my favorite NES games...

good to see we're getting a start over here.  so is anyone willing to put Kohan2 down long enough to get some UT action going?  if anyone wants to play, send me an IM...i'll be around, but i do have other things i should be doing that keep me from just hanging in the server all night tonight...
