A good way of running 2 accounts then (if you wanted to).

News Comments > No Fallout 3 Demo
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.

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.

Not that i'd want to swim with them

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.

18. Re: New Car Mar 17, 2008, 10:39 Armengar
 
Id get a saab over a bmw. My 93 aero is a lovely car. Im not sure if saabs are economical to run in the US though (not usre what the parts are like there).

I had a 325 in the 90s and had no end of trouble with the engine management system. It was back to the dealerships every month (no exaggeration)

My saab went back once for a rear brake disc "squeak" and that has been it (apart from servicing and usual brakes change)

I often have to smack myself when I complain at home about my crappy 4Mb connection whereas I have a 16Mb at work.

Why must I wait for my TF2 update to complete, its only downloading at 150k. Bah

I remember being king of the hill in the 90's with my 128k ISDN 16 whole k per sec now THAT was fast

I like steam pricing, its generally cheaper to buy on steam with our exchange rate.

I had a proper sound blaster when I was playing duke nukem 3d (one with the physical volume control on it). My ati Rage 3d+ was a monster of a graphics card - it was PCI too! Better than my Tseng Labs ISA card that it replaced.

Oh the joy. I remember playing on the university network (when it worked - some loon kept stealing the terminators and T pieces to make T-Rex's). Mouse look? What mouse look

It beggar belief that people STILL host severs in the US. With all the shite that lawyers fire at people I would *never* host any of my stuff in the US.
