Halo Trial Version

As promised, the playable demo of the PC version of Halo: Combat Evolved is now available from Microsoft Game Studios and IGN. The trial version of Gearbox's port of Bungie's shooter is a 131 MB download. Here's the deal: "In the trial version, gamers can experience both single and multiplayer gameplay, including limited vehicle combat. In the single player campaign level 'The Silent Cartographer', gamers assume the role of super-soldier Master Chief as he takes on the fierce alien faction known as the Covenant. In the multiplayer map 'Blood Gulch', up to 16 human opponents can light each other up with devastating weaponry and combat vehicles, including the new Rocket Warthog and the Banshee, either online or via LAN connection." Additional mirrors can now be found on 3D Downloads, 3D Gamers, Boomtown (registration required), Computer Games Online, FileFront, Filerush.com, FileShack.com (registration required), Gamer's Hell, GameSpot (registration required), GameTab, Pixelrage.ro, and Worthplaying.

Precision and accuracy are two different things. You can be very precise (as in the frame rate is 34.56789 and measure that 100 times and get it the same), but not be accurate (as in the actual frame rate is 40).

Just like in archery. You can shoot an arrow into the same spot over and over (precision) but be way off the center of the target (accuracy)...
