81  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Gingrich: Child Labors Laws to Restrictive on: December 04, 2011, 12:04:16 AM

http://2012.talkingpointsmemo.com/2011/11/gingrich-says-child-labor-laws-should-be-rolled-back-so-kids-can-be-janitors.php?ref=fpnewsfeed_beta

Quote
During a Harvard address on Friday, Gingrich blamed child labor restrictions for doing “more to create income inequality in the United States than any other single policy.” “It is tragic what we do in the poorest neighborhoods, entrapping children in…child laws, which are truly stupid,” said Gingrich.

“Most of these schools ought to get rid of the unionized janitors, have one master janitor and pay local students to take care of the school,” he added. “The kids would actually do work, they would have cash, they would have pride in the schools, they’d begin the process of rising.”

now, honestly, would you have wanted to be the janitor at your high school while you were a student?

And no one mentions what happens to the high school diploma carrying janitor's family?

f'em, i guess?

damn dirty unions... those guys should all be working two jobs instead of the one that pays them enough to support their family?

83  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Refurb computers on: November 25, 2011, 12:08:31 AM
after a lot of thought... i am actually considering picking up a refurb during one of the black friday sales at newegg or amazon (at least they are semi-reputable sites)

Has anyone here bought refurbs?  any horror stories?  there was a sale earlier for 2core with windows 7 and the typical out fittings for $170 on newegg for awhile (i am regretting not pulling the trigger on that one)

originally i was on the look out for a mb/cpu/memory replacement/upgrade for my 6yo old computer (single core bad graphics)... but now that i am seeing some of these sales... refurbs are actually looking more attractive.

(example of the type of system i am talking about --- but a little higher than some of the others i have seen)

I will have to start something on virtue... looks like my other toons are on freedom (highest is 14th level).

when i first logged in i thought i would be able to transfer them since there were messages about global slots needing to be unlocked, but it doesn't look like transfers are included

ps - lulz it has been forever since i played this game... i run over to the entrance to "the hollows" and try to change locations by running into the invisible barrier by the two cops... no go. I remember it being something simple to change zones but can't for the life of my figure it out (every other game in the world you run into the invisible wall and it changes zones!)

ps2 - i have a group called the infinity group on freedom if anyone wants an invite pm me (it is not built out at all just started it two years ago to have the free alt costume)

seriously

Thanks for the heads up guys... whenever i did a quick search in the past it made me think a new mb/cpu would be out of the question (i guess because most expensive comes to the top by default alot of the time)

I will sign up for the news letter but definitely post any good deals you might see (or pm me if you like)

Quote from: Calavera on November 04, 2011, 01:08:23 PM

I think that getting an AGP card would be crazy at this point, you'll spend the money, but it won't go toward something you can use later.


Current integrated cards should be in the same range as what you've already got.
i absolutely understood that but i was hoping to get more life (even a year or two) out of my current computer for the 50-80 range (thinking that new mb and cpu combos would be in the $200-300 range).  The question then becomes:

spending 50-80 now and then getting  a new computer in a year or two
vs
spending 100-200 now and getting a new computer in a year or two

and that is the puzzler for me.

I would imagine those integrated video cards are better than my current card?  whoops missed you addressed that in my first read through


thanks for mentioning the CHEAP mb/cpu combos - i will have to think about it (my concern there is that I would simply be getting a better system anyways in a year or two - but you are right in the fact that at least i would be buying components that can transfer or were re-usable).

Quote from: Calavera on November 04, 2011, 01:08:23 PM

If you can wait until the end of the month, Newegg usually puts together some good combos on the cheap
would those be christmas specials you are talking about or normal new combos of the month?

for those that follow them - does newegg or tiger direct have a history of offering christmas clearance specials like the gaming sites? (i am referring to insane specials... your crazy not to buy them specials)


Also... can one of the vid card gurus comment on the spec comparison above?  am i reading it wrong that the hd3650 is the better performance card? between the two of them (never mind they wouldn't be considered "gaming" cards)

ps - my plan for any upgrade at this point is to keep running XP, harddrive, and using my big old box with a 500W PS.
ps2 - i think i saw on cnbc that either thailand flooding or japan earthquake will be affecting memory prices... anyone see that yet?
90  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Video Card Advice needed... AGP (and some low price mb/cpu talk) on: November 04, 2011, 04:09:27 AM
cross posted at the wanderers, but i figured more traffic was here...



After 3 years of wanting a new card but holding off until i buy a new system, it REALLY looks like no new system is in the cards for me.   My current computer was put together maybe around 2004(?): ooooold Athlon 64 , AGP 8x all-in-wonder-9600-pro-card.  It was never the greatest system but it held up well over the years... My only gaming disappointment was civ5, which prompted my search for a new video card (never realizing until much later that my cpu might be a problem with that game as well)



So... I started shopping around for AGP cards to go into my current old old box...

narrowed down between
Ati HD 3650 1gb ddr2
Ati HD 4350 512mb ddr3

I ended up buying the 4350 on amazon a few hours ago

it wasn't until i saw this website that I started getting serious buyers remorse
http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards.php?card1=585&card2=562

while they didn't have an AGP version of the 4350 to compare straight up, I was kind of shocked that the newer (lol !!!) Ati series video board would seem to have worse stats than the 3650


ATi Radeon HD 4350
Core Clock:   600 MHz
Shader Clock:   600 MHz
Memory Clock:   500 MHz (1000 DDR)
Memory Bandwidth:   8 GB/sec
FLOPS:   96 GFLOPS
Pixel Fill Rate:   2400 MPixels/sec
Texture Fill Rate:   4800 MTexels/sec

ATi Radeon HD 3650 AGP
Core Clock:   725 MHz
Shader Clock:   725 MHz
Memory Clock:   800 MHz (1600 DDR)
Memory Bandwidth:   25.6 GB/sec
FLOPS:   174 GFLOPS
Pixel Fill Rate:   2900 MPixels/sec
Texture Fill Rate:   5800 MTexels/sec


and then to top it all off all the user comments from 2 years ago on various sites saying neither were gaming cards!! lol

Luckily Amazon let me cancel the order...

Seriously... what would be a decent video card (for an old AMD 64 Athlon system)
i currently have this video card
http://www.gpureview.com/all-in-wonder-9600-pro-card-78.html

it plays all the games I want on lower settings: guildwars, lotr, team fortress 2 etc with almost no delay or problem (except once in a while Guildwars will make the screen go fuzzy).

my big disappointment is not being able to play civ V and some other newer games that require newer shaders or open gl 2.

while it is not a "gaming card" do you think the HD3650 would be worth purchasing?  (i have seen refurbs go for less than $50)

Also, what is the comparable nvidea card series- agp wise?

And before you say - buy a new computer or new mb and cpu, I just don't see that being a possibility for less than $100


Appreciate any comments on any of the cards above (former owners?) or recommendations for a reasonably priced upgrade that might let me give some of the newer games a try (shader 4 and gl2)

I'm having a blast, and the shorter games make a big difference.  Not sure I'll play much if any SR again.



Eve is back!

i am approx 21-12 in dominion with teemo... loving this game mode - hoping ranked in dominion won't blow (but i don't have high hopes)

had a 6 minute game because of an afk on other team - worst length game is in the 24 minute mark (and i think that was when we made a big comeback and ended up with our countdown points at 6 or so)  - the vast majority have been between 15-20minutes (one of the reasons i focused on Twisted  Treeline is that it is potentially shorter than rift, but the nature of gamers seems to be to drag out the game into 50 minute marathons whenever possible - dominion does NOT allow people to drag out the game too far past 20 minutes)


I wish they had thunk outside the box like this with twisted treeline (starting higher level or special items or whatever)

the most repeatably successful strategy I have had is 3 go top - i take mid then ghost top (to finish off enemy or cap point while my team is fighting) - the other guy takes bot and holds...

then i stay at top to hold with mushrooms for a bit before i go back to buy

where it all falls apart sometimes is when people insist on going for the 4th point capture when they aren't strong enough.  res happens so fast that when the enemy come up to defend the 4th point its easy because they are full from just being revived while my team is half health.



the biggest repeatable mistake i see people make is not hitting people that are capping the point... the slightest damage from a champ will knock them out of capture  (so hit multiple people then run back to make them chase you through the point and then go back to hit them again)

They flipped the F2P switch to 'ON' today, for those that have been waiting for this. Although their website now says that the result of this flipping of the switch killed the servers (servers: OMGWTF...players? Logging in? CRASH DIVE!!!) and that they won't be back up until 4 PST or so so you might want to just relax about playing today.

it amazes me that companies can still be surprised by this... even after it came up --- MAJOR avatar warping in the begining area

do we have a society up and running?

Press interest was built by incredibly elaborately-constructed demos, choreographed with clockwork precision.  Our team of QA ninjas trained night and day so as to be able to act out the same scripted combat scenario on demand (they were actually pretty impressive to watch doing this!).  At first, the press would just watch these sessions as examples of “live” gameplay.  Later, they’d be allowed to join in, but would be so outnumbered by our staff that they would be forced to stay on the rails of our script.

Ok Im in the same boat and need advice. i beta'd the game but never bought it. Now I have the free version and need starting info help. The classes/races I really wanted are not part of the f2p version. Like I wanted to be a golem guy warrior..cant...wanted to be a monk...cant.......so what do I do? I dont really worry about solo play because as i recall it was a group based game. my worry is each class was expected to know each dungeon and do their part at the right place / time or get bitched at.

Would a caster of some type be best or a melee type? ...race?

Also a server i should play on? I picked the recommended one..Orien or something..can still change I think. And how many characters do we get?

i think 2 characters per server unless you are premium then you get 4 (iirc)

trying to restart the wanderer guild on khyber (pm me your toon name if interested) - we try to favor runs occassionally to get to 400 favor so you can get the free drow for that server...

highly recommend the ddo class forums to get some ideas for max/min builds for 28point toons (what you get to start --- later you can unlock 32point toons)

As a tip to ftp only players... if you stay in the  intro area until level 5 (iirc its a 5th level quest) there is a 10tp bonus quest (once per server - in archet it is given in the hunting lodge)...  for those looking to grind out tp points instead of paying - its an easy way to add 10*number of servers tp to your total (just don't buy the item that the 10tp quest provides smile )

Just a reminder that the new season has started and our team has been doing pretty decent... most of the new players have either promoted to amatuer or are well on their way to promotion in their second season...

no spots on the team at this point (and those spots are reserved for long time members of OO and GT)

but if you use my referral link (up above) - I will do my best to help you in the game (if you don't click the referral link - I will do my best to help you in the game when i am not helping the people that clicked it smile )

feel free to pm me or post here with questions (I also enjoy helping players pick out new drivers) - if you post with a question be sure to copy all relevant info associated with the question.

Even though we are on race 5 of the season - it is a good time to join since there are often plenty of good drivers available and there is no crazy bidding wars... so give the game a shot if you like racing management games (and only want to start out with a 2 hour time commitment per week)

uh...they just got 8.4 million. i think they are good for a few years.

You'd be surprised how quickly that much money can go away.  Even if you only have 20 people on staff, say they average a salary of 50k, you're spending a million dollars a year just on salaries.  Then you have to take into account computers and other equipment, software licenses, building maintenance, etc etc. 

Certainly $8.4 million is a good amount of money, but if you start growing the team or have more senior level people with higher salaries or need to delay release you can see that quickly getting eaten up.

but, eh - if they have been bought, shouldnt their paychecks come from Perfect World?
That is what I was thinking -

The next time you see someone daintily stepping out of his Ferrari, wearing a baggy fur track suit and unaware of the effect his lordly display of emerald necklaces hung from his ten normal fingers plus his golden extra robot finger is having on all the fine, foxy people... it will be Travis?

As in Abraham? Is there one where I can be the leader and have my military and such but not control them directly? Do as Lincoln did and just give my generals orders and let them carry them out as they wish? More a macro thing than a micro thing. Real time but more hands off?

Heck even a civil war game like that would be fine smile

that sounds like it would be a fun game --- maybe even shades of the original majesty game (put rewards on the map and eventually one of the hero/generals will decide it sounds like a good idea to go do something about it)

I have often thought a game in which you recruit generals and tell them "this is the objective I wish you to get and here are how many resources I will allow you to spend to get it"  - would be cool (i thought it might be an inbetween step to better AI for games  - since so many do a poor job of assembling viable stacks)

BTS is Civ4 + Additional Warlords units and changes + Additional BTS units and changes + BTS scenarios.
are you sure of that?  I always thought that the expansions required civ4?

btw - i am thinking about getting the complete version via steam to gift but keep colonization... does anyone here consider colonization a good game or is it simply an expansion in sheep's clothing?
