  1. quote:Originally posted by Cruis.In: whats the difference between this? 320GB Performance RAID 0 (2 x 160GB SATA 3Gb/s 7200 RPM HDDs) (320R0) 320GB Serial ATA 3Gb/s (7200RPM) w/DataBurst Cache (320S) what is the difference between those two. the above one is $30.00 bucks more. Not to mention with the first option if you loose EITHER drive you loose all your data.
  2. Call me an old romantic but I always hoped O'Neill and Carter would get it together. I know they were both pretty career orientated but I really liked the episode were Jack was caught in a time loop. He handed his notice in and then gave Karter a big wet one.
  3. Utilities I use: Avast Anti virus - pretty good free anti virus. Microsoft Anti spyware - works well. Other than that I have a hardware firewall and I rarely/if ever get problems with my PC.
  4. Yea probably true. Wouldn't be surprised if you see him running for office in the future. He's most likely just trying to get his name/face recognised by people so that when he is on a voting balot people will recognise it then too.
  5. Cool SC I use Suse too. I recently upgraded to 10 (64 bit version) myself. I use cedega to play some of my games on Linux but I keep a Win xp (64 bit) dual boot for UC and to keep the wife happy (she doesn't like linux)
  6. LOL. Nice to see though. I use Linux at home these days (although I keep a Windows dual boot for my wife and games that don't run under Linux) much prefere to boot to Linux though.

  9. OK I finally managed to get time(and money) to get my hands on UC. What can I say........ WOW falls a little short really. Now I haven't gotten too hardcore into the game yet but I have played the rest of the BC series so I like to think I know my way around a bit (still read the fine manual though) but UC blows me away. The graphics are absolutly georgous. The gloriously colorful space background and the amazingly detailed stations and craft Then I decided to take a peek at earth so I jumped into a shuttle with two marines and landed on earth. When I exited the shuttle what did I see....... TREES and then later in the day I saw animals wandering around on TACOPS....... Now I know I've been absent for a while but dang I missed alot...... At the heart of the game I see UC stays close to its older siblings, the AI is top notch and the circumstances you can get yourself into if you are not carefull can be quite scary (I've already had to make an emergency trip to Galcom in a shuttle to buy a life support unit because my CC couldn't go into hyperspace because the engine was too badly damaged) In Summary to say you did another top notch job SC would not be doing you or UC justice. Suffice to say on first impressions words fail me. So all I can say is Congrats SC!!

By sounds of things they were a little heavy with the punishment stick.
  11. oh thats gonna make work life fun for a while. Lots of our clients use Norton AV corp edition and office XP/2003. Gonna get busy for a while in work.
  12. Checking in. Sorry RL is keeping me REALLY busy since I changed jobs and I can't get at home PC to often these days.
  13. I have XP home on my current machine. My problem is that the PC could do with a Processor and Graphics card upgrade and I have a dreaded fear that once I do so then XP will take a freak and refuse to load/install. quote:I like XP Pro. I remember when people were griping that it didn't LOOK like Win98 and chose classic mode. ( a thread in this very forum) I had no problems with games on it. Anteus Rising: Hostile Waters worked fine with maybe two clicks to get it going. Thief II worked fine. Warzone 2100 worked fine. Even an old demo called Space Command Deluxe worked fine even if the processor was too fast for the engine and I could no longer beat level three difficulty scenarios. XP has been a good OS however some older games will not work (UFO, XCOM Apocolypse) as for Hostile Waters - that's a Direct X game anyway - only problem I have with that is that it has problems with my joystick so I have to disable it before I play.
  14. quote:Originally posted by Darkling: Well Vehicles are out and as bugged as they were in TC (can't store them half the time.. usually when in cities or near your residence) .. By the way they're wording the ship/space expansion, lookes like they'll be charging for that one and BTW, what Galaxy do you play on? I'm Jenjuan on Kauri Playing Imperial on Tatooine (DSB) Sorry about the slow delay, don't get here much these days. Yes vehicles are now out and the system is buggy but at least they are still working on it. (more vehicles to come soon and they've already added another two mounts). Sony/Lucasarts have always said that the Space Expansion will be a 'chargeable' addon that will be an 'option' for you to buy. Advantage off course there is that it will also include all applied patches up to that point so new players won't have to wait so long for almost 1 years worth of patches. SWG is still not perfect and there are some BLAzing problems but at least they are still working on it.
  15. Hey I went searching over the weekend. Tried every game store within a 100 mile radius including PC World (YEUCH) But no one has even heard of UC over here!!
  16. Best of luck with that SC. (Not sure I want to know how it works out though???) I was kinda looking forward to Sam & Max II as I liked I but didn't get to play it much. Ah well!
  17. quote:It's ready when it's ready, and right now it ain't ready!One of SC's classics I think!
  18. I'm still here but haven't got my copy of UC yet.
  19. Agreed AVP or AVP2 with the lights off and the 4.1/5.1 speakers setup correctly (doesn't happen often in my house) can seriously scare the bejasus outta ya.
  20. Shesh there used to be a time when I could look at that list and be proud to own 90% of the titles on it. But now - I own Star Wars Galaxies and Diablo II and thats about it. But considering how many times "THE SIMS" is listed I'm happy with my ownership record again this year.
  21. Gee my first online expierence was on a BB with a modem connected to my old Atari ST (which I think is still around here somewhere!) Man that was a strange expierence.
  22. They can learn somewhat basic english but you're not going to get conversational English IMHO. The story will more than likely be told from the human side with hopefully some killer Alien/Predator action.
  23. quote:I love PC games but am daunted by the work involved sometimes with getting them to run. My PC don't need any 'work' to run most of my stuff these days Turn it on Double click the icon And Away we goooooo!!
  24. Shesh they took their sweet time about it. Still better late than never I suppose.
