  1. quote:Originally posted by Pyros: I love Windows xp pro, just finished setting it up (fixed all my problems with my pc) One question for XP users, in 98 there is a system config tool that allows you to easily delete items that load on startup (realplayer icq etc) all those nice things, how do I do that in XP pro ?

  2. quote: Have you signed on the dotted line and raised your right hand and taken the oath? He shouldn't have yet. At least when I went I took the day Before Shipping out to basic. You do sign a Contract entering Into the delayed enlistment program. I have heard of several occasions where people have seperated from the DEP(with minimal hassle). At this point the military has not spent any money on him(except his Processing at the MEPS, Medical exam, ASVAB...). In any case, I wish you luck $ilk. Let us know how it turns out.
  3. quote: It seems to me that people who were sick of EQ and looking for something 'different' were not satisified. That's why I haven't picked this one up. I also am waiting for Shadowbane. I hope it turns out as good I'm expecting.
  4. Very nice summary, after reading it I had to go see the review for myself, WHAT DO YA KNOW! That's what the man says... If It's not this, it stinks(paraphrased). In all fairness to him though, he does say it will appeal to the Hard Core Sci-Fi nuts, which is more or less accurate.
  5. It shouldn't be a problem provided the user you are logged in as has the appropriate permissions to the Program directory.
  6. I use Opera 6 myself. Has an option to Reject Popus- Accept, or Accept in the background.

  8. and once again I am the only one laughing at my jokes... Must be why I'm not a Stand up comedian.
  9. quote: Dont waste your money on any missile except the ralix, vagrant or questors. Hey Tac, You forgot the Bugnors!
  10. quote: Do these dual turret mounts (2 guns in 1 turret?) mean each gun tracks and fires independantly (aka, 1 gun can be firing left, the other one to the right at the same time)? I typically command a Questar, which has 5 Dual turret mounts, I thought I saw a few times where 1 turret fired at different targets.
  11. Go to Tactical --> Loadout --> SC1 --> Cargo. If your shuttle reported that it retrieved it, that is where it will show. Edit: the relevant page in the Manual is 42. The last paragraph, it provides a few more details. [ 01-04-2002: Message edited by: Melcar ]
  12. My thoughts exactly Jamont, seems like this reviewer spent more then 10 minutes looking for Eye Candy, and actually sat down and PLAYED the game. (And it sounds like he got hooked.)

  14. Mostly for Multiplayer when it comes out. Or to just wander around without having to worry about being shot at by the Military.
  15. Ok, the Smurf has got to go...

    I use ICQ. Haven't loaded it up on my new computer yet though.
  17. I think what he means is the Ghost ability to remote pilot your SC/ATV/FC from the Bridge of your CC.
  18. The Hardware manufacturers have already buried themselves. Corporate is the BIGGEST purchaser, and who needs a 1.5gig P4 with 512mb RAM to run Microsoft Word. Most of the Home users simply check email, maybe a few stock quotes. The Hardware market is flooded. Few except for the Hobbyists(Gamers) need that powerful of a computer. The "Power" Computers are for Hobbyists, there will always be a Market for that. It's just not that Large of a market in the grand scheme of things.
  19. quote:Originally posted by AshSpear: I just wanted to post an observation reguarding the SF marin jetpacks. My AE's jet pack is back to normal with the .3 patch. I has the original 4-point thing, but the other SF marines outfits in the game still have that half jetpack for marines on planets... No big deal, and it is always possible that I've done something wrong. Any ideas? My best attempt at translation is: The Commander Jet pack model for space is the proper model again. The SF Marines however use the EFM jetpack model.

    New computer

    I already had the 19inch. Otherwise I probably would have gotten the 21. The system was a decent price too, check out www.cyberpowersystem.com just uh... If you order from them check to make sure theres no loose screws bouncing around.

    New computer

    Well Gentlemen, my new computer has arrived. I am downloading the BCM patch as I type. If you are interested in the specs you can see them in my last Log file (or my System Profile Info). It's messed up though, get the machine on Monday(and of course have to let it acclimatize), take it out of the box, and hear the sound of a screw rattling inside the case... hmmm that's not good. so I pull the case apart. fish out the loose screw, look for any other possible problems with the setup. Today, go to turn on the computer, well... it's supposed to have winXP installed... it does, it just won't boot, The machine POSTS fine, but won't boot to windows(Not even the safe mode), so I Format the drive right out of the box(Chances are I would have in a couple of days anyways just to see what the XP install was like.) I now remember why I have always put my computers together myself instead of buying a prebuilt system. I feel I need to send a letter to this company, explaining the situation, and asking what kind of quality control they actually have. First Impression of XP, hmmm setup is simple, stick the CD in, boot from CD, format drive, They install what they want, Instant OS, just add computer. Second impression it's ummm well... bubbly. I personally don't care for the Rounded corners on the windows, it's not bad once set back to the Windows Classic, which is easy to do.

Am I missing a glaring weakness, or does no one choose it just because it's ugly? Who knows? test it out, then report back with your results. Actually, I don't think it's ugly myself... Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder.
  23. I tried making a post on the private forum today, when I clicked the add button it gave me a 404 error. Anybody know what's going on with that?
