Wish amazon offered a lossless format, instead of just mp3...

You could leave a feedback to Amazon. Does iTunes have lossless format?

Have not used Firefox for a while, so I tried it the other day and attempted to downloaded a new flash update. Won't be using it again, it bluescreened my computer.

Don't use Flash more like it.
And how are we supposed to play Flash games and stuff?

I am fine with my old 19" screens (LCD and CRT).

What are those, screens for ants?!

Oh right. Fair 'nough.
19" is big enough for tiny ants!!

I got mine for the three hours stress test, but didn't get to pass the character creation and thought the game ended at 9 PM PDT, and not EDT. The game is so dang huge to download and install!

I indeed may settle on the idea of a 4th Gen i5 and air cooling.

Just don't settle for the stock Intel cooler. Buy something decent from Thermaltake or Zalman if you're going to OC.

Also spend the 7 bucks on some Arctic Silver thermal paste. (Yes, it makes a big difference.)
I don't OC my hardwares and I still use third party fans because the stock CPU fans are loud. :/

+1 -- although Blue has indicated a reluctance previously...
Did he say why?

Turns into income = taxes. BIGTIME. (my guess)
Ah. What about donations?

http://unknownworlds.com/ns2/ns-survey-results-2/

This was seven years ago. I remember specifically reading this when it came out and it has been engraved in my head, as a NS1 player for all those years:

This feedback has reaffirmed my belief that NS2 should be roughly 1/3 the same, 1/3 improved and 1/3 new. That's the general rule of thumb developers tend to use when creating successful sequels and I think that goes for us too. I have a lot more confidence committing to some of the basic gameplay elements in NS2 now, so it's full speed ahead.

I believe the ratio of this "golden rule" has been ignored... and are tipping the scales.
Thank you!

There was a survey posted to the community that preceded the development of NS2. The essay portion is very interesting

People also took the time to write long feedback in the "essay" portion of the survey. The general feedback was generally:

- People like the game as is (obviously, if most respondents have been playing for four years!)
- Don't change the game too much for the sequel (except update the graphics)
- More developer information, site updates and progress transparency
- Longer games, more game modes
- Reduce the learning curve
- More community involvement and tighter integration
URL please?

I hope they have another free weekend. This looks like something I might be interested in, but I really need to play it to say for sure.

I know that is really my fault, I have missed a few. They just says seem to have the free weekends when I am busy.
I have the same problem with free weekends and BUSY life.

Besides, I still have to finish System Shock 2.

You definitley don't rush though your library, do you?
I'm not any better these days. I still need to resume and finish World in Conflict, C&C3:KW, Oblivion (still in the sewer/caves!), WoW (well, level up after 40), etc.
