  1. I agree, because surely in theory it would be okay to post, say, an.ips translation patch?
  2. What is your business? <{POST_SNAPBACK}> He's a Repo Man. http://www.impawards.com/1984/posters/repo_man.jpg <{POST_SNAPBACK}> That site doesn't like hotlinking. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Ok, I fixed it.

  4. Duh - that's what happens on the internet. People flame and spam and troll, it's just part of the fun.
  5. That song sounds so much better when it's recorded in Dobly.
  6. Thanks. And >85% = a High Distinction.
  7. We have the seasons 1-2 and the season 3 dvd.
  8. I've already done my exams. For my classes this semester I got 2 distinctions (a distinction is 75-85%) and a credit (a credit is 65%-75%).
  9. I definitely wouldn't say you lasted the longest, if we're going to count the British Empire, the Roman Empire, hell the Ottoman Empire compared to the American Empire is like a movie compared to a commercial.
  10. I don't see why they wouldn't extend its benefits to all electronics. It's not like this processor is PS3 exclusive. Sony might use it in their own PCs kind of like how Macs use an IBM chip. But I don't know if it will be available for the public like AMDs and Intels are but I want to know how they stack up. Both of those companies are also working on next gen multi-core processors. I think they're going to use this processor as a way to converge a whole bunch of consumer electronics. Hell, they just might slap a keyboard and mouse with a PS3 and sell it as a PC. Apparantly this CELL processor can use multiple OSes at once, the application of that is yet to be seen. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> I can think of one very important application for multiple OSes at once - emulating the ps2 so there'll be backwards compatibility. And Axl, why on earth do you hope the ps3 fails? Would you rather Micro$oft succeed with their xbox-next? Well not me! I hope the xbox-next fails.
  11. This was the chairman of the largest bank in America telling his investors objectively what they needed to know for the next few fiscal years, not just some random person with a crackpot theory. Plus he was saying it in private, so it's not like he was trying to make a big deal for the press - he never expected the minutes from the meeting to GET to the press. And of course the reason other newspapers/networks/news sources aren't running with this story is that it would incur the wrath of the republican party. Bush has spent four years retraining the journalists in your country to instead become propaganda conveyors. I mean, what, you expect a story like this to appear on FOX news? HA! Basically, who do you trust to tell you how it is on economic matters, the chairman of the largest bank in America, or embedded journalists who rely on the president's office for most of their news reporting, and therefore don't want to risk incurring the wrath of the republican party?
  12. Damn. But then, look at this price list: http://www.ausprices.com.au/Computer/Compo...Card/54021.html It seems that the 256mb XTREMES are substantially cheaper (ie actually in my price range) than the 256mb XTs, so I may have to compromise and get one of those.
  13. That's some nice random facts there!
  14. All well and good, but the collapse of the largest economy in the world will have some substantial side-effects on the world market. Although, considering the unpayable amounts of debt 3rd world countries owe to America, some countries could well get better off, countries such as Australiia with such close economic alliegances with America will no doubt suffer quite badly. I can't remember who said it first, but this quote sums it up best, "When America sneezes, Australia catches a cold".
  15. Fair enough, it does seem to be better, but it is more expensive and the 9800xt seems to be plenty good enough for me. Now the only thing I'm worried about is if that really is an XT. See, it's called a 9800 XTREME (I've also seen it written EXTREME though), and while XTREME has XT in it, that may be a deliberate case of false advertising. Can anyone who knows the difference make sure that this card really is an XT?
  16. It could be that your ISP was heavy in traffic, or that there were problems with the cables. Also, on my DSL plan, once we download over a certain limit (10 gigs in this case) they slow down our connection exponentially the more we download. Maybe your ISP has a similar deal. If you're on wireless, there could be a lot of other reasons.
  17. The x800s are about twice as expensive, and the geforce 6800 would be about $50 more, but I can't seem to find any locally. I could order one but it would add extra hassle. Besides, I prefer radeon to geforce (only because the geforce 4 440 mx is such a bullsh*t card ).
  18. No, fatal, I am not. I am sharing an article in which experts who know a lot more than you and I are predicting economic armageddon for the US because of the way Bush is running the country. I'm not happy about the fact that at the rate its going your country is going to collapse. Even beside all the poor (ie anyone who doesn't have an offshore bank account) US citizens who will be thrust into economic disaster, it could spell global catastrophe considering the economic upturn that will be an inevitable result. But it is happening, and will happen soon at the rate things are going. That is not my opinion, it is a fact.
  19. Now that christmas is rolling around I can finally start shopping for video cards. This is the one that captured my fancy: http://www.centrecom.com.au/catalog/produc...1c7b63b22c86271 Here's the features Does it look like it's worth buying? It's a 9800xt I think so it should be pretty good right? It's alot of money though so I don't want to buy an obsolete card.
  20. I'd probably get the cheaper one, but the only thing that worries me is that the cheaper one apparently has only 64 megs of ram (but 512mb video memory). But that could be perfectly normal for a laptop, I just don't know.
  21. http://business.bostonherald.com/businessN...articleid=55356 Here's an excerpt. Hope you Americans enjoyed living in an affluent first-world country, because by the looks of things, that isn't going to last. This is what the Bush tax-cuts and massive spending have done to your country- he's bankrupted it.
  22. You mean... <{POST_SNAPBACK}> That's porn! You better edit it! <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Ok, ok But now your post is linking to it!
  23. That photo was part of a dossier the admin put together when trying to figure out who did it.
