There is a provision for the smaller conferences, like where Hawaii resides, that if they have such a great season they are going to get a big $ bowl. And that is what this is all about. OH St #1? They haven't played in 6 weeks, wth is that? Just like the electoral process they have a lot of people that are willing and financially able to go see their team pretty much anywhere.

LSU beat a few nobodies by the proverbial skin of their teeth. They have a decent team and won when it counted, but they are not the power house their record indicates.

Oklahoma dominated one of the worst conferences in history; big whoop. Very odd for all those years where if it wasn't corn-fed it wasn't a football player, but perhaps the kids are getting smarter and getting away from home to play ball elsewhere. Don't think they're worthy of the #3

Ariz State SHOULD have been handed the Fiesta bowl, against Oklahoma just like the old days, but the market shows that we do better with more torusim dollars having two outsider teams. No brainiac requisite on that one, but it sucks for ASU. Meanwhile they get another Holiday bowl is san diego (not even in Hawaii anymore??) and Texas is in for it.

USC lost to Stanford and should not be ranked again until 2010.

It's all about the money and business is good. Still, your books are $300 per!

Very lame quiz.

Yes -- that infant has no chance without parents
Yes -- mortally wounded man had better have the balls to jump off, but if I have to, I'd toss him over
Yes -- but would I have the reflexes to do it?
No
No

But in all 3 latter cases can't I just yell at people to GTFO? What happens to the trolley if it takes a sharp turn, are there people on it? Are any of the 5 hot women? What if the trolley flips over, jumps off the tracks, and takes out the 5 anyway?

I tried the augmentrix once and it was a waste of cash, so i won't be bothering with that anymore.

Shocking, I know, but there was a bug in the augmentrix.  It is now fixed and works properly....whatever that is.
I got some kind of bonus added to the item, but it was some sort of lame 4% damage to demons or something. So in what way was this 'fixed'?

I think I've done all that can be done, but perhaps I can learn a little something here.

My PowerColor 9800 SE will not draw 3D any longer. I can't start WoW, or Hellgate due to the issue.
DXDIAG also confirms that 3D engine will not initlialize on Dx7, 8, or 9.

I have reinstalled the latest ATI drivers 3 times and DirectX 9.0b & c twice. I can still surf and all that, it's not totally dead, but no 3D games will work.

I've had one lovely bug come up from time to time - the level loads in COMPLETELY dark. As if there isn't an ounce of ambient lighting PERIOD. The only source of light until I restart the game (as zoning in/out doesn't work) is to keep firing - the lighting 'effects' from my gun hitting the ground, along with the mini-map, allow me to see enough of the level to progress.

Dude... that's a map that's supposed to be that way. You were given a helmet with a freakin light on it for that level. You aren't the only person to report that issue in that map. slywink
Oh good, someone beat me to it. There were a couple times where the shading took a couple seconds to kick in and I thought this was a bug too. I fiddled with the shading, and added dynamic light to try and "wake up" the texture engine. Well I have gloves that have a flame effect (can't recall what they're called) but then I noticed they created some flickering. Then I remembered the headset the guy gave me and VOILLA! Was a pretty kewl effect.

I'm only running a 9800 so my video settings are largely medium at best, but I've never had the game crash. There are plenty of issue with multi-player tho. These will probably be remedied by a beefier system that tracks where players are on the map respective to each other.

Doesn't fire with either card.

Of note is that when I do manage to fire the PS up (using the method above), it only stays on for about 60 seconds before shutting off... I'm not sure if that's normal, however.

No, this is not normal. Glad that was all that was wrong.

If you are used to an upper-middle class PC, a laptop will never replace it for that budget. If you are a heavy-duty gamer that requires a lot of FPS and reaction time, you simply cannot get that out of a laptop for less than many-thousand $$.

If you play MMORPGs and stuff you might be able to squeak by, but you'll regret the lack of upgradability later on.

Keep the case clean and get some upgrades for your existing box.

Jeebus, 179$? They better blow all the dust out of my house for that price.

Newegg has them for $130, and even that is too hard for me to swallow on a 2.1 set.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16836119105

But that's the promedia GMX. There's a Promedia Burst set for $150 which is maybe what folks here are talking about

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16836119008

For $40, the Logitech X-230 is a very nice set http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16836121119
Or for $60, a bit more Logitech power Z-4 -- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16836121130

Attended Wellesley College and Harvard University, but withdrew to pursue her acting career. Went back and finished fifteen years later, graduating from Harvard with a degree in government.


After she finally accepted that she can't act.

And that is the most horrifying photo of Jodie Foster I have ever seen. I am scarred for life. I've always hated her "acting" but I have new respect after seeing this info.
