1121  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Oblivion - $15 off the 360 version, $10 Off the PC version on: March 19, 2006, 03:02:39 PM
Why does it say available tuesday 3-21?  Isnt it available on 3-20?
1122  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?
1123  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.
1124  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.
1125  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.
1126  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.

1130  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / TempurPedic or Sleep Number? on: March 05, 2006, 03:15:21 AM
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.
1131  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.
1132  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.
1133  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.
1134  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.
1135  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.
1136  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.

I think I just got a new character name for games.

Should have had some special force troops called haxxors.
1139  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Fascinating article about Iraq and the "Global Struggle on: February 25, 2006, 11:45:20 PM
Ok wil stay out of the threads.
1140  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.

1145  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.
1146  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / New Mobo? New OS License says Microsoft on: February 17, 2006, 11:57:33 PM
You dont own software you only license it.
1147  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Navy's F-14 fighter jet flies its final mission on: February 17, 2006, 09:43:46 PM
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.

1152  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.
1153  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".
1154  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?
1155  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.
1156  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?
1157  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.
1158  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.
1159  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.
1160  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.
