1121  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.
1122  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Katrina: Bush and the administration were explicitly warned on: March 02, 2006, 04:01:52 PM
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.
1123  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Alienware or Sager Laptop? on: March 02, 2006, 03:41:21 PM
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.
1124  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.
1125  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.
1126  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.
1130  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.

1135  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.

You dont own software you only license it.

The F-15 is the air force air supierority fighter and it is not a carrier based plane.  It is also pretty big and does not have folding wings.  The F-16 is smaller but again is not a carrier based plane.

The F-18 Superhornet will pick up the role of the F-14.

The odds are always the same.

To put it in perspective; according to the odds you have a better chance of being a guest on the Tonight Show than winning the lottery.

1142  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Why small government is a bad idea on: February 14, 2006, 08:29:01 PM
Why does everything have to be so BIG with you.

You have two slimeballs who either were criminals or by gaining access to the offices they were elected to decided to abuse that office.  They were bad people doing bad things and they got caught.  This doesnt have anything to do with how big/small, powerful/powerless government is.
1143  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Give the Vice President a gun and look what happens on: February 14, 2006, 08:25:21 PM
I didnt stretch anything.

You take half of what somene says and make a claim on it.

When you state "he was hunting illegally" it certainly sounds different than "he was hunting illegally because he did not have the proper stamp on his hunting license".
1144  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Why small government is a bad idea on: February 14, 2006, 07:48:32 PM
"These people were fairly elected, therefore everything they do is legal by it's very nature!!!!"
"These charges are nothing more than jealous accusations by people who can't win elections!!!!"

No one said any of that.

What I am saying is how the hell do you manage to make some leap from two government officials in the same small town being corrupt to small/less government is bad?
1145  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Give the Vice President a gun and look what happens on: February 14, 2006, 01:13:18 PM
I like how unbreakable leaves out information.

The VP did have a valid hunting license, what he did not have was the correct stamp for the type of birds.  He was given a warning citation, which according to local authorities is routine.
1146  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Why small government is a bad idea on: February 14, 2006, 01:09:03 PM
Ok so one instance of two corrupt people in a small towns government means that smaller governement wont work?  How do you draw this conclusion?  We have to have a massive government structure to protect us from corruption?
1147  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Starting out with stocks. on: February 14, 2006, 01:03:38 PM
If you only have $500 go to the bank and put it into a bond or CD, get one for five years or something.

If you put the money into a fund you have to look at the fee's they charge.  Even if you do not actually do anything they still charge fee's and this could easliy degrade the initial investment.
1148  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Give the Vice President a gun and look what happens on: February 13, 2006, 09:59:00 PM
Unbreakable let me say this very clearly.  What I have stated is that they are not required to notify the MEDIA.  Local authorites and the media are two different things, at least in my world maybe not yours.

The MEDIA is angry because they were not told for 20 hours.  I think the real reason the media is angry is that a small town paper scooped them.
1149  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Cop tells airman to get up, airman gets up & is shot on: February 13, 2006, 09:51:51 PM
once they arrested him I am sure he was run through the system.  you can have a warrant and not even know about it.

I registered my car after moving to GA and six months later I got a summons to court.  Somehow I managed to get a traffic ticket three months before I had even moved to the state.  I figured they either recycled the license plate or a cop screwed up when writing the numbers down.  Went to the clerks office and show them that I still lived in VA at the time and they wiped out the ticket for me.  Had I not gotten the mailing or been pulled over I would have very likely been wearing matching silver bracelets.
1150  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Give the Vice President a gun and look what happens on: February 13, 2006, 05:03:21 PM
Disclose to who?  Secret Service provided aid and an ambulance took the man to the hospital.

If you are on a hunting outing and you accidentally shoot someone.  Are you required to notify the local news media?  No you are not and neither is the Vice President.  What you are required to do is make sure the person gets appropriate medical care and part of doing so is reporting to local authorities that a shooting took place.
1151  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Give the Vice President a gun and look what happens on: February 13, 2006, 04:26:45 PM
Your point being what?  There is no requirement for people in government to tell anything to the press.
1152  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Give the Vice President a gun and look what happens on: February 13, 2006, 12:21:12 PM
unbreakable there was no 24 hour waiting period.  The man was treated immediately by the secret service and taken to a hospital by ambulance.  A local newspaper reported the story first.
1153  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [DEMO] Battle for Middle Earth II on: February 13, 2006, 03:23:36 AM
I managed to bag Gollum in the last game I played and got the ring from him.  I used Shelob to transport the ring back to my fortress, she was level 10 and it bumped her damage big time.  Once you get it to the fortress you keep gaining power points to spend on the specials.  I still think drogoth is bery cool but the Balrog will give him a run for the money.  Summoning him in is just sweet and all the attacks (the whip is very nice) he has are very well done.  If someone ever sends a Balrog at your armies just pray you have enough units to keep him busy until his timer runs out; he just sweeps things out of his way.  Did I mention that the Balrog can fly too.

1155  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Man Goes Bankrupt Building Starship Voyager Home on: February 13, 2006, 03:16:41 AM
That had to be a lot of work.  I do not see anyone wanting their house or apartment that way but for a hotel themed room that would be slick.

It mentions he tried to e-bay the apartment for 2 million so he must own it.  Also the amount listed that he spent is in british pounds so he must be in the UK.
1156  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Unique set of M & Ms on: February 12, 2006, 10:16:18 PM
I toured an Mars plant in New Jersey once.  We got to see the odball products that get made by accident.  We saw a peanut M&M that got stuck in the chocolate sprayer (its like a dryer that tumbles with a bunch of peanuts in it) the thing was the size of a small boys head.  The regular M&m's go throught printing machines that hit about 50 at a time with the mark.

In our gift bag we had one of every Mars candy, the M&M guy belt, M&M guy stuffed fridge magnets and an M7M gumball style dispenser.
1157  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [DEMO] Battle for Middle Earth II on: February 12, 2006, 05:17:35 PM
ran just fine on my system and I even forgot and left MS office mail running in the background.

Medium graphics and I think I ran it at 1280x1024
AMD athlon 2500 barton
1 Gb ram
256 MB video card radeon 9550

I particularly liked the dragon hero that the goblins get.  He has some way cool attacks; a fireball and a fire missile that looks like a dragon made of fire.  Watching him knock down and scatter enemy formations was pretty awesome too.

I also like how you can see upgrades on the units; banners, shiny weapons etc.

It is funny that you can say both parties are buggered and that is not good enough for our democratic members here.

"Yeah well the repbulicans are way more screwed up than we are".

Political and religous discussions on the internet by and large do not come to an agreement.

A guy in our security detachment at Quantico had been a police officer before joing the Marines.  He was in his police uniform driving in to work and was around the corner from his station.  A guy with a knife walked over to his car tapped on the window and told him thru the closed window that he was being carjacked.  He reached over to the passenger seat and picked up his pistol and pointed it at the guy (window still closed).  The guy ran so he went to the station told the duty sergeant and the guy was picked up right away.
