1921  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / "Disc Read Error" NOOO!!! [PS2] on: October 21, 2004, 08:43:21 PM
So, I bought my PS2 a couple of months after it was first released. And I had absolutely zero problems with it ever since... until now. I borrowed a copy of Mega Man X6 from a friend, and inserted it into my PS2... Disc Read Error. Okay, I thought, it's probably scratched or something. So I went back and tried it on his PS2... and it worked.

God damn it! My first disc read error... I hear stories about some PS2's that can only read DVD's or some such. frown frown frown Damn you, Sony.

Oh well, nothing I want on that list. I don't really want cash for it, not yet anyway. Thanks though, hopefully someone else'll have what you want.

I have a 512 MB DDR266. I'm using it right now, but I'm thinking of tossing the whole thing soon, so show me what games you got, and I might think about it.
1925  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Thinking of buying an Apple computer on: October 20, 2004, 06:27:05 PM
Quote from: "Lee"
Fireball, I want a Mac for everyday use (net, email, music) and photo editing. The photo editing part is what scares me. A laptop's small screen size would be a problem for that.

I think a 17" 1.8ghz iMac would be good with 512 megs, but can I add another 512 easily when I have the money to do so? iMacs look like they are hard to upgrade. Can you even upgrade them once they are built? I can't add a hard drive but can I upgrade the hard drive at a later time?

Would that iMac run Adobe Photo Elements good? Maybe I should forget photo editing on it and leave that for the PC?

I wouldn't game much on it if at all, just small time wasters or the Spiderweb Software games, so the 64 meg video card wouldn't be a problem.


The iMac G5 is much more expandable than the previous iMac G4. You can upgrade the HD, optical drive and RAM. The only thing you can't upgrade is the graphics card (which is soldered to the motherboard). You can add up to 2 GB of RAM if you want.

As for the speed, are you kidding me? The G5 is a FAST processor. MUCH faster than a P4 clock-for-clock. I could run Photoshop CS great on my 900 MHz G3 iBook. That G5 will eat Photoshop Elements for lunch.

The iMac is a line of Macintosh (Mac) computers. All Apple's computers are Macs. That's the difference between the iMac and the Mac.

As the above poster said, Apple just released a new updated lineup of their iBooks, the base being $999 1.2 GHz iBook, which is an awesome deal. If you can't stand the 12" screen, you can always hook it up to your current monitor, and use it like a desktop. That's what I'm doing with my iBook G3 900 MHz.

Hey, they didn't even name any of the Ravens in their "invite" thread! *spit* spineless scurvies!

Seriously though, take a chill pill, LE. I, too, have questioned their ulterior motives in the other thread, but to tell you the truth, there's not much we can do about it. I don't grudge the BS'ers for going to BS. I'm just not going to go over there and post there. That's my choice, and there's damn they can do about it.

"I may disagree with what you say, but I will fight to the death your right to say it" (phrased) whoever said this is a wise one.
1933  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Pf Changs on: October 17, 2004, 07:44:20 PM
$50 for TWO people, I can see. I'm talking about ONE person. $25 for one person, that's not crazy-expensive. I've been to restaurants that's even more expensive, and regularly at that.

But then I'm from the New York City area, so yeah I'm one of those snobby people, not rich though :p
1934  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Pf Changs on: October 17, 2004, 07:00:23 PM
I have a PF Changs near where I live, and I go there from time to time. $50 a meal? What are you smoking? I typically spend $15 at most on my meals there. Not that expensive.

1939  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Need help... Good cheap places for screen printing? on: October 16, 2004, 07:08:07 AM
:shock: That much?

Thank god it ain't my money at all, and I couldn't care less. But still, I have to ask; does it have to be embroided? Couldn't it be printed, like t-shirts? The polo shirts I'm looking at are cotton made, and the material is like regular t-shirts, so I couldn't see why not. I would like to get as much information as I can before the next meeting on Monday.
1940  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Need help... Good cheap places for screen printing? on: October 16, 2004, 03:34:09 AM
Cheap brand shirts, not looking for anything fancy... But not so cheap that it shrinks to toddler size after the first laundry slywink I'm going to need 13 shirts, 11 women and 2 men, each with their name on one sleeve. Unigender shirts is preferable (for convenience's sake). Varying sizes, as well.
1941  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Is this starting to feel like GG? on: October 16, 2004, 03:24:30 AM
No offense to the other forum, but this pisses me off a bit. Everyone flies here after GG went down, KD made tons of accommodations (of which I'm very appreciative), and then alluva sudden, everyone flies over to that half-assed forum, and it's dead here again.

1946  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Need help... Good cheap places for screen printing? on: October 15, 2004, 09:33:05 PM
I need someone to make shirts for me. This organization wants about 12 or so polo shirts with the logo on the breast and their names on the sleeve (everyone has their own name on their own shirt), and the year on the other sleeve.

Anyone know of a good, cheap company that does this? I'm in the DC area, so if there's a local good one, that's viable too, although I prefer online.

Thanks.

1950  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / WoW...Is it a explorers paradise? on: October 15, 2004, 12:18:27 AM
May be a bit of a tangent, but how does the game look at the lowest graphical setting?

I'm thinking of playing this on my laptop, which has a 32MB Radeon 7500 Mobility. While not a monster by the farthest stretch of the imagination, I'm sure it can handle WoW at a low graphical setting.

Although I don't play Pokemon anymore, back when Blue and Red was all the rage, I was a huge fan. Played them alot, I had the Blue, then Yellow versions. Used to take my Game Boy Pocket to school and trade and fight with my friends. It was fun. It went out like a fad at my school, so I ran out of people to trade/play with, so I stopped.

1957  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / AGP vs. PCI slots for Video cards on: October 14, 2004, 02:57:13 AM
PCI Express is going to replace both AGP and plain PCI (and it's successor, PCI-X, but that's a whole another post). So running cards in SLI mode is now possible and easier - since you can use any of the PCI Express slots for your card.

That's how I understand it.

Hey Qbe, glad to see you made your way over here. I tried to get the Contest back after the forums went down, but seems dev'null and matt, my only remaining competitors didn't make it over (I did email dev/null informing him of what happened, but he hadn't responded, nor appeared here yet). Too bad, the Contest was fun. How about restarting a new one coming January? biggrin

Hey, wankerjr, not to sidetrack things, but how is EB preselling the DS anyway? Will they require you to purchase shit like my EB did with the PS2, Xbox, AND Gamecube just to buy the damn thing on day 1? Or will they be nice for once and just sell the thing straight?


Currently EB is just doing straight up pre-sell of the DS for $10 IIRC. Nothing extra to buy at this point. I'm personally waiting to see if they are going to run a trade in deal for the GBA SP.


Heh, I'm sure they'll sell the Nintendo DS itself for $150, then lower the price to $149 if you trade in your SP.  :rolleyes:
