I have absolutely no problems with my ATI drivers either, short of ATI not allowing you to use their drivers on any and all laptops that have an ATI card inside.
The chip in the laptop is not equal to an ATI video card. Though I suspect some of it is licensing too. I have the same gripe with my 1705 in wanting a few more FPS out of WoW, but none of the latest Catalyst or OMEGA drivers do any better; in fact, sometimes worse.

Perhaps its a graphical memory limitation?

and Evangelion: Neon Genesis is pretty cool up to the last episode, which is pretty  retard
No no no, do NOT watch this unless you are _really_ into the anime scene, not doing drugs or alcohol, and happy with your romantic life.
It's a kewl series, but the creator himself had to spend a couple months in a mental institution upon completion.

Ghost in the Machine, Final Fantasy 10 (FFX), Witch Hunter Robin is not nearly as pretty, and its a series, but a good one.

I've never had issues with ATI drivers, but have to admit there is a bit of upkeep involved. However, as long as you follow directions it goes smoothly. Furthermore, ATI does not crack down on alternate drivers, and I think that's beautiful. The OMEGA drivers don't seem to be any sort of miracle, but they're out there and give power users some extra control over the hardware.

NVIDIA, on the other hand, has a small branch of RIAA tactics when it comes to their drivers. And they have a patent infringement lawsuit against them which may explain why they don't want anyone messing with them. The good part to this is tight control and not a lot of mess when it comes to Nvidia drivers which a majority of users attribute to stability.

I have owned a Dell, a Micron, and a Toshiba laptop. By far, the Dell was best, but none of them were bad.

Small word of advice, the 17" widescreen is pretty, but rather unwieldly. If the machine is going to travel a lot, stick to a 15" LCD.

And save a load here: http://www.gotapex.com/

I got my Dell with their code. It is legit, and it is nice.

Well the intent of the post was to suggest that there may be another MMO on the horizon that will have some of the chemistry that WoW does. Though, as pointed out with the Infinium example, it seems more Vegas than Science.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Red 5 Studios, an online video-game developer led by members of the team behind the wildly popular "World of Warcraft" game, said on Monday it has raised $18.5 million in venture capital.

Mark Kern, Red 5's chief executive and former team leader on "World of Warcraft," said his California-based game studio will create original games for online game operators and distributors -- much as Pixar Animation Studios did in the movie world with its animated films such as "Toy Story" and "Finding Nemo."

"Pixar really showed that you can have a content-focused strategy," Kern said of the animated film maker that is now owned by the Walt Disney Co. (NYSE:DIS - news)

Red 5 is already working on a massively multiplayer online game for Webzen Inc. (069080.KQ) The South Korean company is financing the development of the game, which Webzen will distribute.


I thought this was interesting, but what do I know? paranoid

I like Starbucks only for the reason that they built the coffee market to the point where quality coffee is profitable.  And while I personally dislike their coffee, I'm pretty grateful for them building out the market so other companies can make, and profit from, great coffee.

COFFEE IS MURDER! Vive la bean!
Coffee is for smelling, not consumption.
The only thing coming of columbian coffee market is better profits to buy better cocaine producing factories.*

I'm not arguing that it won't be an improvement. I'm just saying that I'd avoid buying hardware that will need to be, at best, patched or, worst case, outmoded when the true standard is released.

A $25 WAP will extend the range of the wireless quite easily.

MX500 wireless FTW! eek
However, if I ever scratch up the, uh, scratch for a laser mouse I'll look for this one.

This is probably a day late and a dollar short, but after being bit by the G standard, I'd recommend avoiding N sets until the standard is finalized (hopefully summer '07).

As stated, find a unique channel, only use B or G depending on your needs (unless you need both), move the device to a central location. Also, a WAP as a bridge/repeater is a fairly cheap choice these days as well.

I'd look for one of the buddies to have an IP address statically assigned, as opposed to allowing DHCP.

Even if the mask was 255.255.255.248 you'd get 6 people.
