  1. 4 It gets bothersome from time to time; like when some prick decides to plug their laptop with no av software into our network and releases a worm across campus, but overall it keeps me busy and I enjoy it.
  2. If you're going to set it to a fixed size (Which I would recommend as well) the equation is 1.5x(RAM) where (RAM) is the amount of system ram you have. In most cases (at least in my experiences) that should work. Be warned, Windows isn't meant to have fixed swap file sizes. I've never experienced a problem with this, but then again I'm running 1024MB of ram at this point in time. Some of the other system admins at my school like to set the workstations at 1.5x to 3.0x, and let Windows handle it from there. But this is getting off topic, if we really want to discuss swap files we should create a new post. Oh, and apparently Diskeeper can actually defrag the swap file (or so it claims). So you shouldn't have to worry about safe mode. (Although I'm not sure how that works... cleaning up the swap file safely.)
  3. Defragmenting is sometimes referred to as Optimization since it reorganizes the files so they're in order. As you use your computer and access the hard disk it tends to throw bits and pieces of files all over the partition. It will speed up the access times for your hard disk. Make sure you boot into safemode and have 15% of free space before you defragment. With safemode you can defrag the space used for your Swap file and the 15% gives the program enough room to move files around.
  4. Bah, those Chilean security guards were full of bullshit. Makes me wonder what the hell was going on. I may not like our president, but I still would rather him stay safe than die.
  5. Those of you who frequent Slashdot have probably already seen this, but for those of you who don't... Microsoft probing reported flaws in Windows XP SP2 Who didn't see this one coming?
  6. Isn't it illegal to work people over 40 hours a week with no compensation or overtime?
  7. My roommate sold 9 of his games just so he didn't have to wait till payday to buy this... It rocks.... I can't stop playing. Halo was great, Halo 2 is better. I figure its a good thing to waste the time while I wait for next week. There are some GREAT games that have come/are coming out this month; this is going to be a very aggressive season.
  8. Real DVDs only, unless you've modded your xbox.
  9. Any reason you dropped Opera SC? There seems to be a big trend of people dropping Opera as of late; don't really see why, Opera works almost exactly the same except for the extensions. quote:All I use IE for is website testing to make sure it looks right and works.I don't even support IE for websites I make anymore. It's no longer the "compatible" browser; when netscape wasn't considered "compatible" people refused to use it. I just prefer sending people to a website telling them to upgrade their browser or look at the crummy "lite" page. Getting IE to work properly with CSS2 isn't worth my time.
  10. I can sort of understand why they would make a patent for it at the time, but 3d graphics are so widespread now they can't actually expect people to pay royalties. You hit the nail right on the head Soback too! They explained 3d. 3-Dimensional art has been made for years, who says that 3-Dimensional graphics are any different? The patent office is broken; somebody within the past 20 years hasn't been doing their job. This kind of patent really limits technology as well. People really need to rethink the reasons why they're getting a patent before they apply for one. Of course, if you're going to do something like this patent your obviously after the money. Abuse of Patents is becoming too common, as is abuse of most anything these days. It wouldn't suprise me if you sent in inhaling and exhaling and got a denial with the reason listed that its already patented.
  11. Yea this whole thing is just rubbish. God help us if they actually affirm this patent in court; I'd hate to have to pay royalties just to make a bloody 3-D model in my OOp II Class. (Yes, we're learning OpenGL and D3D... I don't know why they didn't seperate that into a different class, don't ask.) Chances it'll just get shot down in court for being too general though.

  13. I'm here. But not for long. Unfortunately this is my resignation from the fleet. I just don't have time for BC anymore, and as such I feel I'm just taking up space in the fleet. Perhaps if I get more time in the future I'll come back, but for now I've decided that the best course of action is to resign. Real life has finally caught up with me. Juggling 2 Majors, a job, and an addiction to Linux and Java Programming has left me with little time for UC. I'll still be around the forums from time to time, but for now I've got more important things I need to focus on. Farewell Comrades, for now at least.
  14. Ummm, wow... this looks impressive. Everywhere I've found BC online has sick pricing. On amazon the cheapest was 80 dollars. You might look on ebay, I'm sure it'll pop up eventually.
  15. Ugh... Ivan was predicted straight for us two day's ago. We got hit by Frances by the time it was a tropical storm. It managed to leave 28,000 people in our small georgian college town (those of you from Georgia should understand why I used georgian as an adjective in this case) of 33,000 without power. Georgia Power just finally got all the power back up for the people on the outskirts. Thats Georgia Power for you, take their time and then charge you tons of shit when they don't get it right the first time. Kinda relieved that Ivan isn't going straight for us, but the local news is saying that we may still get some effect from it.
  16. Reporting in... barely living..... can't reach you command.. second year of college killing me.... send help.. quickly
  17. Hey guys, I'm gonna have to pass on any matches for this week and next. School just started and everything has gone to hell (quite literally) so I'm sort of frantic right now. On the plus side, I have internet again, soooooo can't complain there. I may play some UC MP sometime this weekend... every time I play though nobody is on...
  18. Heh, prozac in water eh? No wonder I've been feeling sooooo hap-py!
  19. Calm down Bandus. They are Americans, and do have the right to a trial with lawyers. This is a really nasty case, even with the lawyers its gonna be open then shut again. All of them are probably going to get the needle for this one; they deserve it. Yesterday Nikes, today Xboxes. Sad, really sad.
  20. Yes, but letting your own Engineers repair it helps them get smarter, and when they get smarter, they get faster! In fact, I would recommend this method myself. Just keep close to the station if you're heavily damaged and you should be pretty ok; little can survive an attack from a stations weapons.
  21. WOW This game is grea........ must.... play... more... dooooom. P.S. Vanilla doom 3 rocks guys... really, it does
  22. quote:Violations for docking at a legal station with illegal items in cargo are now only for Terran/Military and Terran/Earthcom players. Previously, violations were given for others e.g. Gammulan/Military.Heh heheh... YESSSSS!! Eat it Galcommies.
  23. Why the hell would Interplay sell the license to them anyhow? For starters they're not professional game developers, and I doubt that Interplay would like to sell rights to somebody who will just nudge them under the carpet. They're bluffing; I doubt that Interplay would cut a deal with them.
