speaking of 'Who's on First', the unreal tournament 2003 lip-sync re-enactment was pretty good:

What makes me laugh is that you can do pretty much all the dx10 "extras" in OpenGL on standard XP.

but don't we have to wait for the "Mt Evans" opengl release on the end of this year for that?

2. Ex-Marine Kills Bear, Saves Sons. Jun 23, 2007, 01:04 rocketpcguy
 
animal activist comments in the site:

It's a tragedy that the bear had to die because of the ignorance of the child and his father.

and

And this man should not be praised for killing that bear. His family's ignorance caused the bear to come into their camping area and because the young son then acted stupid and attracted the bears attention. It may be a safe ending for this thoughtless family, but a veyr sad ending for the poor bear.

is the added "dx10 improvements" (no, i did not mix up the dx9 and dx10 screenshots) worth the massive performance loss?

and we've been seeing physics in games for years. painkiller had excellent framerates, i don't see how you're arguing that you need dx10 to handle physics for playable framerates.

DX9 is intentionally made bad. they made it seem as if you can only have physics with Dx10, obviously hl2 and havok proved it wrong. nfs proved you can have motion blur in dx9, while these videos seem to show its impossible. the rain and rain drop effect on the floor wasn't mind blowing, i dont see why dx10 is necessary.

is there really a noticeable sound quality difference between the gigabyte/whatever onboard 5.1 sound card and a dedicated creative one?

man, thousands of goats, cows and other animals are being killed every day, why is that one that got killed in sony so big a deal? ever seen a goat face to face before? they're stupid. not like dogs, for example.
so many people are neutral to see PEOPLE and CHILDREN die of starvation, but when an animal with hardly any brains or understanding gets killed, its an outrage.

edit: the goat was also got from a butcher, and returned after the party. more a reason why it doesn't even matter.

jericho looks like a good game, but if the game was based on a real thing with a few unreal spooky stuff, it would be much scarier. at this point, its too impossible (government hires gunmen with supernatural powers?) to be a horror story.

4. I'm brain damaged? Mar 22, 2007, 05:50 rocketpcguy
 
It's wartime, and an enemy doctor is conducting painful and inevitably fatal experiments on children.

You have two kids, ages 8 and 5. You can surrender one of them within 24 hours or the doctor will kill both. What is the right thing to do?
...
But for a group of people with damage in a part of the brain's frontal lobe that helps govern emotions, the decision was far more clear. They would choose one child for death.

Wouldn't sacrificing one child be the best thing to do? Why would that make me brain damaged? I know its horrible, but its twice as more horrible if Im responsible for having both my children killed instead of one. Or am I insane?

Can any sane person explain?

i never had trouble with quake 3 & 4 in linux, it ran very smooth with my nvidia card. yes, unreal tournament 2004 was slightly slower than the windows one, but the quake games seems fine.

and although it isnt accurate, its worth a look:
