Get the Motorola Docsis 3.0 cablemodem. Even on the midrange speed package I get 72Mbps down and 7Mbps up, way faster than what it's advertised at, only supposed to get 12Mbps down and 1.5Mbps up. This is the one I'm using [http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16825122009] given the speedboost from Cox Communications gives you much more bandwidth temporarily. My old Docsis 2.0 modem would top out at 18Mbps down. This is at my business, I also put one in at my home and it peaked at 95Mbps down the very first time I tried it on Speakeasy's speedtest page.

Ha, I love how it says mac users are clueless about needing antivirus. I like how macs are such a fad, people think they are bucking the trend by purchasing a mac and everyone loves an underdog, however they are just paying more for pretty much exactly the same hardware as whats in a pc "albeit controlled by a single corporation". Steve Jobs is laughing all the way to the bank while the clueless public convinces itself mac's can't get a virus or are easier to use. However I do see the appeal from the standpoint of someone who has no clue how to shop for a pc, when they buy a mac it's the same machine everywhere you go. Preying on the stupid, shame on you corporations.

Just pledged 250 euros "359 US". If my business meets it's forecast this winter I'll most likely do the 2500 euros and hope it makes a profit.

Edit: Like post 21 says, we just need 8000 people paying 50euro each to meet the goal, if it's anything like the last one then it's well worth that amount to get the game via digital download and a boxed copy.

Indeed, this is the best news all year. I just signed the "make nexus 2 petition" yesterday, boy was that a quick response "sarcasm". Nexus TJI is still my favorite game, the multiplayer was even fun although nobody played it and the servers went down not long after it was released. I still have my boxed copy and will never get rid of it. I've told countless #'s of people about Nexus and they bought it from steam and loved it. As for the really difficult missions, just look for the walkthrough and it will get you through those impossible ones. The sneaking through the asteroid field to approach the shielded base was painfully hard but I did it after reading what others had done. Funny though the Battlestar Galactica mod was just released the other day for Nexus TJI. There's a star trek mod for it as well that's fun and some additional missions made by players that are also quite good.

I didn't read any of the comments, but for me, I'd have to say no to 3D games, I've been blind in one eye since birth so the whole 3D glasses thing doesn't work for me.

Referring to my previous thread, if they overprice ships and items like they have for what's already on the microtransaction system then nobody is going to use it anyhow. I may have the money to blow to save me time but I'm not going to be foolish with it, it has to be a fair price.

You can buy ships and items from websites already, however its against the game's policy to purchase them in this manner. I'd guess some of these people crying are the ones selling such items for cash on websites and are the ones looking to take a hit in the wallet from all this. I don't have time to make isk in EVE "I do still have a large chunk from when I did have time", and buying PLEX for cash then selling it for isk would solve this, but you still have to go get the items you purchase from wherever that station is and possibly lose them bringing them back to wherever you are stationed at. If I could buy ships and such through the microtransaction system and they just show up where I'm at this would be a real time saver for me and probably many like me, thus allowing me time to enjoy the game rather then spending half the time doing logistics work. CCP would divert the money to themselves instead of going to these websites I spoke of and I don't see a problem with that. I say screw these 5000 people, they'll make tenfold the cash from the new system than they'd lose giving in to such a small group of whiners.

Actually I do very well even with arty, I know to keep moving when arty is on the map. All I'm saying is that I think it would be more fun without it.

spoken like a true child of the instant gratification generation. how about you take a moment out of your clearly beligerant playstyle and read up on how the game actually works. or move on to something like wow where you can leroy jenkins everything without thought of the consequences. not that i have any stake in the matter, but god forbid dev's listen to such stupid comments one day and ruin a perfectly good game.

Damn, easy dude, didn't mean to hurt your feelings by saying what I don't like about it. I'm almost 40 as well, so I don't think "child" applies. I can't stand wow either.

Artillery literally ruins this game. Instead of having fun tank battles where everyone is roaming around shooting, everyone has to play the waiting game at your base until you get tired enough of waiting to suicide your tank into an artillery barrage. Remove the artillery and it's a great game.

I have a blast playing eve. You have to get into a corp preferably a 0.0 space corp. The larger corps or alliances are better, they reimburse your ship losses and you actually get to partake in the large fights "500 or more people in one system", which is insane fun. Getting into a corp is where you get help understanding the game and it makes it much easier. Eve doesn't have a learning curve it's a learning cliff, but once you put the time in to figure it out it's fun to play.

Do we get to spread fear and keep our people in the dark ages, ridicule those with new ideas or new ways of thought. Oh yea, and can we mass murder other cultures because their version of god is wrong... lol
If so, I'm in.

At the company I used to work for we blocked facebook at first but then the powers that be decided to make pages on facebook dedicated to the company as a way of advertisement, everyone was pretty happy when I opened up facebook on the content filters, although we did block the facebook games, they weren't very happy about that.

Also at these theoretical high speeds if said undetectable matter had a gravitational effect on normal detectable matter would it's high velocity explain the ever speeding up "expansion" of the universe.

Upon further theoretical "crazy" thinking, if said matter were able to travel backward in time if time was relevant to the singularity as to a normal observer the matter pulled towards a black hole could essentially travel backwards in time to a time before the singularity existed at faster than light speeds which would make it undetectable by normal means aka dark matter. I'm sure all this has already been proven wrong tens of times but it sure would be cool.

1. Naked Singularity Feb 14, 2009, 15:53 Sugarman
 
What happens once matter is pulled towards the singularity at ever increasing speeds the matter would appear to slow down to us as time passes more slowly for a fast moving object the closer to the speed of light it gets? Perhaps it's mass becomes infinite as it reaches light speed or some unknown phenomena allows it to pass beyond the speed of light therefore theoretically going back in time, where would this matter end up then? Depending on the speed it attains should define how far back in time it travels. Interesting at least, something to chew on.
