9. Re: PS3 as Blu-ray player May 27, 2008, 08:22 Armengar
 
I know one reason why I should use my PS3 as a blue ray player. I won it in a competition so it was free. I must admit though, I was annoyed at the lack of IR as I use a kameleon remote for all my gizmos. Noise doesnt bother me as I have a glass fronted ventilated cabinet for my hifi, satellite, av switchers etc. Luckily my ancient kenwood nv701 had an optical in. I dont have a truehd decoder but I do like the comfort of my DTS or 48khz lights lighting up and showing the speaker outputs. Then again, it is hardly a show stopper.

rolled out SP3 seamlessly across 250 machines here without issue. Obviously I tested it first against a master.

apart from the spectrums (first in line for a rubber key) my main "computer" was a good old amiga 500. I modded the crap out of that with extra memory, soldered CPU for toggle interrupts, hard drive bay. Then I (foolishly) upgraded to an amiga 1200 with a 400Mb drive (cost me 300 for the hard drie alone, my months wages almost) but guess what! That maxtor 400mb drive STILL beats today running linux as my firewall and internet load server thats 18 years of use - surely a good buy?

Anyways, it was mainstream PC from about 1991 with a DX2/66 (with 4mb rage II card - I had a good job at the time) then a dx4/100, P120, celeron 300 oc to 450, althon 1gig, xp2000+, xp3000+ and now a black edition 6000 dc.

Only 2 intel CPUs ever. graphics cards have been a rage 2, then a orchid voodoo1, then a voodoo2, voodoo 3000, geforce 256, geforce 3 ti500, radeon 9500+, 9800XT and now a radeon 3850, so mainly a radeon person.

computers were scary money in the early days. look what 300 will buy you today.

109. Re: No Fallout 3 Demo? Apr 22, 2008, 16:42 Armengar
 
cracking games is quite old school though. Mini images and disc mounts make the games quite useable. This goes for GENUINE copies of the games too. As I said previously, I detest having to find my CDs and DVDs (to the point that I *will not* buy a starforce protected game)

My opflash works quite fine with a disc image of my own disc. I dont have X2 so I cant tell you about that.

86. Re: No subject Apr 22, 2008, 07:46 Armengar
 
well i'll be buying the game anyway just in case it is good (which im doubting but hey, I love fallout!)

As for pirated games. I have bittorrented before purchase (note *before purchase*) and deleted the download if crap (mainly on absence of a demo, or no demo at the time I could purchase). I *always* use no-cds and/or mini images as I find locating my CD/DVD is a complete farce (I purchased alcohol 120 to make my own images). All of my *purchased* games have worked fine so far. Now what I am doing is technically copyright infringement but is it morally wrong?

I wouldnt dream of buying a car before test driving it however on the same caveat I wouldnt expect to be able to open a loaf of bread and eat a bit before buying that. Fun and games

1. I had a petition against me Apr 18, 2008, 11:15 Armengar
 
when I blocked youtube, bebo and facebook. Of course, like a good sysadmin I looked closely at the logs of the people signing it and banned them from the internet when I saw various .swf's being played

I didnt read it like that at all. (Was the bootnote in there when you read it?). I read it more like DX10 is maturing but not yet the "ultimate" experience it was touted as.

I need to keep away from this like the plague. EU3 ate my time in a way that wasnt funny.

Japanese were the way to go for me (after I tweaked their negatives to match the europeans!) Shintao for the world!

plus all the crap about coffee, alcohol etc not good enough to drink if you are thirsty (diuretic) is a load of crap too. Sure it wont hydrate you as much as water but its still water. It will still stop you dying of thirst.

It would be much better (as a bank robber) to leave behind someone elses ID. That should help the trail get colder for you.

looking forward to FO3 (FO2 was my fav, FO1 was good but not *as* good)

Who mentioned Ultima 7? I just threw out my copy of ultima 7 (it was on an RPG compilation with some other oldies such as bards tale 1,2,3 and stonekeep). Those were PROPER time-eater games. aaaah the memories.

There is no way im installing Vista on our site. We have 300 machines that are circa 256Mb P4 2.8 (dell optiplexes) they are 3 years old and are due for replacement in 2 years.

Not feasible to purchase a vista licence for each one and some RAM. So all new machines hitting our network are also XP by specification. Ive had no problems getting XP machines from Dell or fujitsu siemens.
