  1. Boohoo, EB in Ottawa, Canada, say they won't receive it until next week. Damn
  2. Check your MTU, it should bet set equal or lower than 1492 for best performance under DSL. Sometimes, dialup accelerator software set this MTU to 576 and that can cause a lot of headaches with DSL. Checkout www.speedguide.net on how to change this.

Not everyone has file sharing activated on a unpatched win98 machine. At best you could probably DDOS him but I doubt it would do anything to improve the situation.
  4. I had problems yesterday loading the board, my explorer windows would freeze up. Clearing the cache did the trick. It might not be related to the board itself though.

  6. It must be a really private warez copy, no word on isonews.com yet...
  7. I haven't checked but most games using some form of protection can be bypassed using CloneCD or some other "raw/true copy" CD burning software.
  8. Wanna bet how much time it's gonna take for a cracker group to come out with a regkey generator or a crack? I'd say not too long... So far all the games I've played have been cracked one way or the other. I presume most game developers don't have time to develop super protection schemes for their games but I may be wrong.
  9. I personally find this statement a little humorous. This may seem a little heartless, but you are worrying about a couple million people who *MIGHT* need a visit to the doctor, and saying we take money away from a program that *MIGHT* keep millions of people people from dying outright and many more from dying later because of the radiation involved in a single nuclear strike. Seems to me that working on ABM's will probably save more lives in the long run. The plain facts are that there are people dying in the streets right now and that this money would save quite a few of them. Oh right, they're "lowlifes" like Jaguar says. Of course, when you ain't got money, that surely means you are too lazy to work for it. uhuh
  10. What's it to you? Sure, there are different threats, sure some may say that ABM is unneccessary, but still, if it happens to protect just ONE person, then I'd have to say that it is worth it. I agree that saving lives is important but the way I look at it, by spending the money on other social programs such as health care instead of these ABMs, it would save a lot more lives. We're talking about a LOT of money here, and the military wants us to beleive in their paranoia crap to justify a system which may in some computer theorized scenario save the land of freedom? from the evil chinese goverment (or some other dictatorship run by a deranged madman who keeps his finger on the launch button everytime). After all, aren't all chinese persons blood thirsty maniacs who 100% support their goverment in the pursuit of global destruction. Sure... If I was a "rogue country", I would just sit there and laugh at those americans spending a fortune on these ABMs while I send a few professional terrorists with small nuclear bombs to do surgical strikes on US cities. just my 0.02$ flamebait [ 05-30-2001: Message edited by: Tekrebel ]
  11. You wanna start another debate Jaguar?
  12. Cool! That snow covered planet looks like a good spot to use as a labor camp for those Insurgents scumbags. What's the deal with the rainbow colored exhaust trails SC?
  13. Woah, that armor was cool And the Klingons didn't seem to have it on their ships so maybe in the future the Federation has an advantage on the other races? But there's something weird with this episode, what about the Borg Queen dying? Isn't she supposed to be in the Star Trek : First Contact movie? And if so, why haven't the Federation put the armor technology on all their warships (since the future janeway brought it back from the future)? Anyways, I guess they have so many script writers that some may happen to conflict from time to time. That's one thing I liked with Babylon 5, the consistency of the story. Anyways, a good last episode though I wished the ending wasn't so rushed.
  14. Looks like I missed that part in the FAQ... Thanks SC for answering my question.
  15. I'm wondering... In the upcoming released version of BCM, will I have to disable "Adjust Z buffering" everytime I want to play BCM or is that "bug"? going to be fixed. Not that it is a major problem but it's a bit annoying.
  16. I hope this thread won't end up in a Canada vs USA military *****ing
  17. Damn, the new shots look AWSOME!!! Arg, I can't wait for the game to come out, my copy is already preordered but since I'm in Canada, the dude said it's gonna take 3-4 extra days for them to receive the game. Damn.
  18. The sound blaster live driver really blows in Win2k too... But anyways, I'm upgrading to 512 mb ram this week so i can run vmware. yay
  19. Come on, everybody knows republicans == bad for the environment. Canada and US are being blamed by international organizations for not respecting the air pollution treaty they signed a few years ago. It's quite obvious that we are destroying our ecosystem and in the long run we're going to suffer the consequences. The facts are there and no political "energy bullshit plan" is going to do anything about it. If the US is so concerned about the environment, why haven't they respected the Kyoto treaty? (Canada is as bad as the US on the environment issue)
  20. Windows 2000 is much more stable than Win98 for me but you need much more RAM to run it. It runs 95% of my games correctly and I'm quite happy with it, I see no reason to go back to win98 except for some DOS software. Windows XP doesn't sound very appealing to me: ugly interface, higher ram usage. And if you want to run DOS titles, you can still to run 'em using Linux's Dosemu running under vmware in win2k
  21. Legalize the damn stuff, too many people have died in this War on Drugs. And the goverment might even make some bucks out of it by taxing it. The kids are better off smoking a big fatty than killing themselves in the long run with tar and cyanide contained in the cigarettes. To me, smoking a joint in the park is no different than going in a bar, getting drunk on beer. As for harder drugs (cocaine, heroin), I haven't formed my opinion on it really....
  22. Jaguar: So yes, I think you're crazy, I think that this has a religious intensity for you, and no matter how we explain the holes, you will continue on about how great Socialism is. So yes, I think you're crazy, I think that this has a religious intensity for you, and no matter how we explain the holes, you will continue on about how great Capitalism is. -- Menchise AND Aramike has raised some very interesting points here and I think we should not end this in a religious war thing. In my opinion, we have to be open-minded about other ideas, as crazy as they may sound. After all, it is the way society progresses, by discovering new ways of thinking and experimenting with new systems. Just because something doesn't appear to work the first or seem impossible to accomplish, it doesn't mean we have to give up on the dream and stop trying to better ourselves.
  23. What do you think Sadam Hussein, (terorism, and waging a war that's been going on forever), or those damn China leaders(the inident with the plane, etc...) u think that they are sane? That's exactly why US needs missile defence, because those countried might decide to take a chance and try to wipe out or significally cripple all of the US. Come on, that's not a James Bond movie here, China's leaders are not insane maniacs plotting to destroy the world in a nuclear holocaust. Prevention is ok but extreme paranoia is not, in my opinion of course.
