1921  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Question about domain name hijacking... on: November 05, 2004, 05:37:18 AM
All right, I registered a domain name under a hosting "company" called NorthWindWebHost. They are a smarmy, sleazy company that went out of business, sprung up as a new company, Blue Hosting or something like that, went down, and sprung back up as . Well, I knew from the onset that I've made a bad move, as they refused to give me control of my own domain. But I didn't pursue it, as I switched to another company for my hosting, and when I requested they change the DNS information, they obliged. Fast forward to a couple months ago. I took my site down, and no longer have a need for the domain. I decided to just let it expire. It's expiration date came and went, and my information is still on the whois registry. For privacy reasons, I want that information out of there. I don't give a shit if they want to keep it or not, I just want my information off the whois registry. Well I emailed them three weeks ago, and naturally got no response. I found their phone number today, and gave them a call. The person on the other end gave me bull about how domain names takes a long time to become available and the registry information to be changed. Well, I know for a fact that domain names become available almost immediately after the expiration date. And the weird part is, when I view my domain in the whois database, the expiration date is still Oct 2, 2004. What gives?

And if it's still their fault (NorthWind, VizHost, whatever the **** they are), is a threat to take them to court a viable threat? I mean, could I even take them to court over this?

I know, it's just a little thing, but it's my information on there, I no longer own the domain, so I want that off, so the damn junk mail could stop.

1923  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Nice new LCD from Dell... on: November 05, 2004, 01:10:55 AM

Normally I wouldn't touch a Dell product, but you gotta admit, this LCD looks sweet. I don't like the audio bar thingy either, but the good news is, it's removable. Notice the S-Video-in there... That means I can ditch my crappy TV. And it's only $800, and knowing Dell and their crazy coupons, I could probably get this for $600 or so.

I'm seriously considering buying this.

Well, the past weekend I brought in my starting-to-get-funky PS2 at EB. My luck has it that they're out of PSTwo's. But I still gave them my PS2 because the $100 trade-in deal ends on the 31st. So now I'm without my PS2, and eagerly awaiting a new shipment to arrive at the local EB. Anyone got any idea of tha availability of those things?

But I don't play MMORPGs much, so YMMV.

Quote from: "Jancelot"
Jerry Bruckenheimer produces so many movies that you get the good (Pirates, The Rock, Black Hawk Down, etc) with the shit (Armageddon, Kangaroo Jack, Pearl Harbor, etc).  In my book he averages out and I never know if I'm going to luck what he produced.  Then again you can usually tell by the director, and the same guy that directed The Mummy is doing National Treasure so prepare yourself accordingly.  Sure he makes lots of money, but so did Barney.

Hey, I liked the Mummy movies.

On the PowerBooks... yes, it's due for an update, but the update for the iBook came by without a word for it's bigger, aluminum-y brother. It's possible it'll be updated in January. But as for it being big is unlikely. Possible but unlikely. The only two possible directions the PowerBooks could go are a PowerBook G5, or a PowerBook dual core G4. The G5 is way too hot, and NOT for laptop use. Not yet anyway. The dual core G4, while promising, is still a while off - Freescale says the first samples will go out in February-March, way too late for a MWSF2005 update. So chances are, we won't see a PowerBook update for a while, or see a simple speed bump.

As for the iMac G5 fan, it's not supposed to be loud. That's a defect that affects a fair number of iMac G5's. Call Apple and they'll provide you with a fix.

Are you... sure about that... Mentag?

I've played around with Linux. And it's no plaything, I'll tell you that. Almost impossible to install trouble-free, constant problems, incomplete-feeling open source software, more problems, and a necessarity to use the terminal if you want to do anything, oh did I say more problems?

OS X is vastly superior. And Apple's sleek machines are vastly superior than your typical biege Linux box.

Linux may be approaching danger for Windows, but the only thing that tells you about Windows is that... well, you know the rest.

My email and name is the same here and on GG. I did a trade with Simon once, so he can verify me... though back then I was using [email protected].

I totally agree with you on the one-button mouse. I hate that thing. That's why I'm using my Intellimouse Optical. Works great, and you can use the extra buttons for expose. Or the usual uses it has on the PC if you get the IntelliPoint drivers/software. Just about any USB mouse will work in OS X natively. Logitech also has OS X-based mouse drivers if you have/like Logitech mice.

As for browser, Safari rocks! If you still don't like it for some reason, there's many browsers on OS X to try out... Firefox, Camino and Mozilla are the most popular. Just don't even think of using Internet Explorer, it's outdated by two years, out of development, and sucked even when it was IN development. Just stay away.

1941  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Hey lawyers (LSAT and GPA Q's) on: October 23, 2004, 04:28:51 AM
I hope the lawyers from Gone Gold still read the forums around here.

I'm majoring in philosophy, and plan to go to law school. I'm just wondering how the lawyers who has been there, done that, went about it. What's a good LSAT score? I'm thinking 165 and over? And how did you prepare for it? And what was your GPA? What should I keep it at? I currently have a 4.0 GPA, but I'm screwing up big time this semester, so that 4.0 will go poof. I'm hoping to go to either Georgetown or New York University law schools. Cornell would be nice, but dunno if I can get in. I think/hope I'll end up practicing in New York, so a New York school is ideal.

Sorry for the barrage of questions smile

Thanks in advance.

Oh well, guess I'll hold on to it for now, and wait until it gets worse :p Currently it's only one game that's getting the read errors. The PS3 will come out eventually, and I'm hoping it'll be backwards compatible with the PS2 and PS1. If it is, excellent. If not, I'll buy the PSTwo.

The EB deal is over on Oct. 30, is not it? Hmm, maybe I should take this dying PS2 there, take the $100 credit and get a PSTwo?

Question is, how well does it play PS1 games? Cuz that's very important to me.

The nForce 4 will be coming out within the month, or so I hear. That'll probably be your best bet, unless you already have a video card you want to use (the nForce 4 is a PCI Express-based mobo).
1947  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.

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.
1952  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Thinking of buying an Apple computer on: October 20, 2004, 01:38:14 AM
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.
