I got the same bundles - some REALLY good gaming for a tiny amount of money. The strange thing about it is that I could have sworn that MNC went Free to Play so I am wondering why there is a key for it...

The free-to-play game is called Super Monday Night Combat and is separate from MNC. I'm not too familiar with them, but I think I heard SMNC superseded MNC for gameplay and players.

Here are the links for standalone 326.01 installers hosted at nvidia.com: NVIDIA blog.

There are no release notes on the driver pages (except for the mobile 64-bit 326.01 page listing 320.18 release notes). Googling didn't turn anything up for me.

Jivaro, I think you'd do well to revisit and read this (from http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/agnostic?s=t ):

Synonym Study
Agnostic, atheist ... refer to persons not inclined toward religious belief or a particular form of religious belief. An agnostic is one who believes it impossible to know anything about God or about the creation of the universe and refrains from commitment to any religious doctrine. An atheist is one who denies the existence of a deity or of divine beings.

Hmm, something's not right with that Meet the Pyro vid on Youtube. 59,000 likes, but only 307 views?

The video content is summarized in one of the comments if you don't want to watch.

91. Did anyone here play Die by the Sword? Sep 20, 2005, 13:45 Toad
 
It provided the option of freehand mouse-controlled movement of the character's sword arm. I'm not here to discuss it myself - only to suggest a past, presumably-similar example of this type of control scheme for more negative discussion.

Use ScummVM (http://scummvm.sourceforge.net/) to run LucasArts SCUMM games (including Sam and Max) on modern computers. The only online vendors I found carrying Sam and Max Hit the Road have a huge premium price tag on it.

8. A relevant Firefox extension... Jun 15, 2004, 16:27 Toad
 
I picked up an extension (from extensionroom.mozdev.org) that adds BugMeNot to the right-click context menu. If you encounter a site with forced registration for content, right-click and select the BugMeNot menu item. You'll get a popup window with accounts submitted to bugmenot.com for the site you're visiting.

It seems the New York Times, at least, periodically disables logins "abused" in this way, so you'll need to log in with a freshly retrieved account when it happens.

I love my IE... less than a second to load the thing, this google toolbar that now works to kill popups and my entire toolbar squeezed comfortably on one line.. good times.

All the toolbar buttons can be moved up in-line with the top menu just as in IE. View -> Toolbars -> Customize, and drag the buttons where you want them.

The load time is due to IE's "integration" with your OS, so that many of its components are loaded to RAM when you start Windows. There is a quickloader for Mozilla et al. which does the same thing: loads browser components into RAM at startup and keeps them resident for seemingly accelerated startup times.

There is a lot more to the game. Unfortunately, the difficulty selectors in that Shockwave interpretation are non-functional. Level 1 cuts out much of the game's enemies and topography. There are at least two more castles, a large fog-enveloped maze (the player can only see a short distance around his avatar), the blue maze becomes far larger and more complex... the most irritating enemy, the bat, which steals items and drops them in random locations in the game world...

The magnet is for use in retrieving items dropped in screen locations you can't easily reach. Enter a screen with the magnet in hand and any items on the screen are drawn to it. Sometimes that's the only way to reclaim an item dropped by the bat (locations like the space between a castle's towers). If I remember correctly, the magnet is the only item the bat won't touch.

Bwah! The textures look like they're designed with old 3dfx hardware in mind (256x256 max texture resolution) and the dominatrix model lacks polygons in the derriere, giving it a spiky appearance.

I'm all in favor of the 3D-scroller game style myself. Strider 2 was pretty nifty.

The front page of the site would have given you a better idea of the spirit of the creation of the Brick Testament. From the front page's poll:

What do you admire most about Rev. Smith?

-boyish good looks
-unafraid to weep uncontrollably
-lies down for what he believes in
-hung like a llama
-once shot a man just for snoring
