1123  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / DELL IS THE WORST on: April 07, 2006, 03:57:12 PM
Call centers in India are cheap compared to here and thats why compnaies use them.  With VoIP its costs them nothing for the long distance.

The problem is that despite them being able to speak english they do not understand it.  If you get them off their standard script then they are lost.
1124  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / DELL IS THE WORST on: April 07, 2006, 03:05:52 PM
Nothing but goodness here.  Have a Dell Latitude for my work laptop that is nearing the end of its three year lease.  I recently bought a Dell 600M works so well I just bought another for my wife for $544 shipped to me.  Have a dell 1905FP monitor that is the best graphics upgrade I made in a long time.  Have a Dell Axim PDA works and no trouble.

I highly recommend Dell to people.

When you bought it, if you did it online, there is an option to have recovery CD's sent for around $8 or you have to use the recovery partition on the drive.

Blame the vendor because you are apparently incompetent.

the faster the days go by the sooner I am to being able to ask her to marry me.

If you are at that point then you should ask her.

I got married at 26 and my wife was 18, that was 13 years ago.  I met her through a friend when she was 17 while she visited for them a week.  After she left we kept in touch and about a year later she came up for another visit, I dont think it was two weeks and I asked her to marry me.  Best thing I ever did well maybe after getting lasik  :lol: .
1128  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Happy 10th Anniversary...sorta on: April 03, 2006, 05:13:10 PM
Ok so 9 year anniversary is the refrigerator anniversary
at 10 its the washer/dryer anniversary
So is 11 the dyson/kirby vacuum anniversary
What would that make 15 years the hot water heater anniversary?  Or maybe the heating/cooling anniversary.

1133  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Oblivion - $15 off the 360 version, $10 Off the PC version on: March 21, 2006, 01:23:44 PM
Back to the website and I think it is this:

XBOX 360 regular edition is 44.99 25% savings on this one.
XBOX 360 CE is 69.99
PC regular edition is 39.99

They do not appear to either sell/list the PC collectors edition although the box graphic for the 39.99 version looks like the CE version.
1134  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Oblivion - $15 off the 360 version, $10 Off the PC version on: March 21, 2006, 12:59:14 PM
Yes  I should have put XBOX 360 CE 69.99.  Does this game even come out on the regular XBOX?
1135  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Oblivion - $15 off the 360 version, $10 Off the PC version on: March 21, 2006, 02:56:07 AM
From what I am able to read looking at the ad from C-usa website:

PC collectors edition is 44.99
PC regular edition is 39.99
XBOX CE is 69.99

Why does it say available tuesday 3-21?  Isnt it available on 3-20?
1137  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Oblivion - GOLD - Ships 3/20!! on: March 18, 2006, 06:09:19 PM
Is there a difference in the media between the CE and the regular?  Are they both one DVD or is the PC like 6-8 CD's?
1138  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / XBOX360 and BestBuy on: March 18, 2006, 06:06:02 PM
I usually run by BestBuy on the way to class at DeVry.  I just happened to ask a guy if they would be getting any 360's in and he said oh we have 6 or 7 in the back we dont put them on the shelf and you have to ask for them.  All they had was the core system and I kicked around the idea of buying one but decided against it.  I went on to DeVry and decided to check with BestBuy online if there were any showing in stock, the online ordering system showed none available in all of Georgia.

I find that odd, you have to ask for them, they are not on the shelf and do not show in stock.  I asked if they knew when they might get a premium one in and was told they come direct from MS and they have no idea when or what they will get.

What is funny is that I stopped in EB Games at the mall and these guys are still trying to fill the last 15 pre-orders from last November.
1139  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Any singleplayer MMORPG's out there? on: March 17, 2006, 11:44:42 PM
I played NWN's on a persistent server run by drunkenwarriors had fun with it. The guy who created the persistent world did a heck of a job witht he tools available in the game.
1140  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Bioware is doing a MMOLRPG on: March 14, 2006, 05:07:09 PM
and that is a matter of opinion, I liked both of those games.

I also do not think you can really compare a single player story driven game to what the same company would do in an MMORPG.
1141  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / General "can't find 360" grumbling on: March 14, 2006, 03:46:53 PM
I stopped in a mall gamestore and they had boxes out so I asked "hey you actually have XBOX 360's?".  Nope the guy siad they still havent filled 15 of the pre-orders from NOVEMBER last year.

Fits into the current bed frame.  You do not need the foundation as it is two boxes of heavy duty plastic pieces you assemble and cover with cloth; if you do not use it however I believe they say it will void the warranty.
1146  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Need help with new LCD and Video Card settings...Update on: March 02, 2006, 09:28:23 PM
On my dell LCd I have four buttons on the lower right corner for adjustments.  Power on/off analog/digital input and two for adjusting things.  

You should be able to adjust it somehow if the video card adjustments are not enough.

Why does it always have to be the fault of the President?

Where does local gorvernment come into play?  They sure as hell could have said "Hey this storm looks like it may be really bad, get out of town"  or god forbid common sense.  Hey uh this storm out in the gulf looks bigger than anything in my lifetime maybe I should get out of town for a few days.

I think government at all levels screwed up.

A student I ran into at DeVry has a Dell XPS and he loves the thing.  Has an excellent screen and he uses it for gaming; he fired up black & white 2 on it to show it off, looked great.
1149  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / My first day at work after graduating college! on: March 02, 2006, 01:43:36 PM
Hey Knightshade don't feel bad, I am 39 and if a get all stupid on the class rate I will finish DeVry in about a year.  I work full time, actually more than that, and am going to try to do 6 classes a term now.  Oh yeah I don't have all my grades from classes I just finished either.

I find the classes themselves are pretty good but the administration side of DeVry is terrible.  I just go to my dean now for anything class related and I have one finance guy I use.
1150  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Flag Dilemma on: March 02, 2006, 01:36:31 PM
You could print out the rules to flying the flag and mail it to them, without a return address.  If not that if you have a homeowners association you could go through them.
1151  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / TempurPedic or Sleep Number? on: March 01, 2006, 08:39:52 PM
I have had the sleep number bed for several years now and like it.  My wife uses a different setting than I do; my 5 year old son likes to jump on it and it holds up just fine.  

We signed up in a store for information and about 2x a year we get a circular from them with a sale and got our bed at half price.  It was a return/refurb and came with the full warranty.

Ok wil stay out of the threads.
1155  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Fascinating article about Iraq and the "Global Struggle on: February 25, 2006, 02:49:23 PM
Sorry but No.

To call the caricatures racist would be incorrect, the newspapers have caricatured just about every religious leader so it is not racist.

He talks about how many Iraqi's are killed by car bombs and the violence there and compares it to a like proportion in the US.  Where he loses this is that it is their own people setting these bombs off.

He also mentions that we are privatizing Iraq a the point of a gun.  They created their constitution and have elected a government of their own people.  No gun there that I see.

Again you post something just to try and start an argument.  Lets see how long this thread lasts until it gets locked.

1160  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / New Mobo? New OS License says Microsoft on: February 18, 2006, 01:25:24 AM
The problem you run into is with OEM software which is tied to a piece of hardware.  There is no issue in moving a license of a non-OEM to a new machine provided the software is de-installed from any prior machine.

Do I think its right?  No I sure do not.  Software companies in general get away with things no other industry can by only licensing the product.  You can buy a complete buggy mess of software and are basically stuck with it if you cant force a refund.  Imagine buying a six cylinder car but you can only use 3 cylinders until the manufacturer mails you a "plug-in" part that enables the other 3 cylinders six months down the road.
