36. My interpretation Jun 1, 2008, 22:41 UnderLord
 
"we are listening to your comments and are making more consistent community support a high priority.
"
We're going to let you rot this time, but we're definitely going to THINK about real support, though we're not promising it.
(They already have 'consistent community support', consistently poor!)

4. CO2 catcher May 31, 2008, 19:04 UnderLord
 
That sounds like a really stupid idea.
The O2 in CO2 is the Oxygen that we need to breathe, things might get a bit difficult without it.
Trees break down the CO2, keep the Carbon to form their tissues and release most of the Oxygen.
We breathe in the oxygen and exhale CO2, it's a cycle.
All the cheap-ass CO2 extraction schemes look to save the energy necessary to actually separate the Carbon and Oxygen by burying CO2 or some such crap, not a plan with a future for life on Earth!

I think we had best sterilise all these folk who are allergic to the modern world before they contaminate the mass gene-pool.
Maybe they should go join the Amish?

4. Crystal Skulls, Weasel Words May 23, 2008, 22:07 UnderLord
 
A non story due to 'experts' not being sure and hedging their bets-
...the skulls were probably shaped using a spinning disc-shaped tool made from copper...
...This "rotary wheel" technology was almost certainly not used by pre-Columbian peoples...

I'll bet it is, Microsoft probably insisted on the inclusion of a TPC module to stop those pennyless swine stealing free music.

News Comments > Age of Conan DX10 Delay
30. Re: No subject May 20, 2008, 02:02 UnderLord
 
So I should be happy that I can buy a next-gen OS that doesn't come with a player for next-gen media just because whiney MS backed the wrong horse?

Sorry, but I have higher expectations than a half-arsed support for a high end media drive than just storage.

What I mean is that until there's full support for that expensive drive, I (and most folk I know) won't be buying one, which is the same result as no support.

24.8 GB??? Why, if it gets any bigger they'll need a SECOND Blu-Ray disk!
Oh, wait, there's still no Blu-Ray support in Vista is there?

"focus on building a DirectX 10 version worthy of Microsoft’s great vision for the future of PC gaming"
By "a DirectX 10 version", I wonder if they mean somme DirectX 10.2 version of their game with a DirectX physics API that they're privvy to?

Damn right they aren't factual.
The programs typically start anything up to 10 minutes later than advertised, and if Big Brother or Survivor crap is on, then anything up to half an hour later!

How come System Management Mode gets the acronym 'SSM' and not 'SMM'?
No wonder folk can't find the rootkit, they're being misdirected!

Call that a cap? 25GB a month, that's a cap and only (AU) $80 a month for the pleasure of it from our major Telco'. :-(
At least I won't blow it all in a day at 1.5 Mbps / 256Kbps!

1. MS remote May 7, 2008, 02:50 UnderLord
 
A disaster waiting to happen! Windows is not a real-time system, that's why they have other software for products that need that.
It's one thing to repeatedly piss off a single user playing an FPS with a brief (sometimes not so) stall every time Windows decides it has something more important to do than handle user input, but it will be quite another when roomfulls of people see the crappy performance windows turns in.
If you are just talking consoles though, then you might have more luck, but I wouldn't bet on it. How likely is it that the Xbox's OS aren't based largely on the same core code as Windows?
