Which is still about 100x better then ATI/AMD's driver support
Beh. Having had both cards of the previous generation? They're about equal in terms of spottiness at times with the drivers.

#1 reason to choose Nvidia is driver support
Peh. Depends on which team is doing what, considering the old 500 series driver team is doing all of the 600 driver enhancements you'll usually see impressive increases. The current support for the 500 series though can be seriously hit or miss. The recent TDR fiasco is a fine example of this, since they had to bring back the 600 team to fix whatever the other guys did.

A 95? Holy shit... I guess we know where that 200 million dollar budget went.

Dinner, dancing, and high priced escorts and blow?

I'm curious as to what the user ratings will be, but I'll be as well. But I've got enough unplayed games sitting around I can wait until this one goes on sale.

Wishing somebody would kill off Flash already,
We've got html5, and silverlight too the problem is it can suffer the same. I was on the youtube beta for html5 and about 80% of the video's simply stopped working as well.

like say, videosift pressing the middle button of a mouse to scroll completely DEADLOCKS the entire tab (but only sometimes, not always.. so maybe videosift related?). I can still scroll on the right side, but I can't click anything, and this always happens when youtube embeds are anywhere near.
...
I have the same problem in palemoon and chromium. I've had it lock badly enough to lock the entire browser before as well but yeah, YT embeds are screwed up then again in general it's fully screwed up.

Oh they are, Fusion research for example has been going on for decades. Unfortunately its woefully underfunded. Plus certain industries don't like competition to their gravy trains and politicians are easily bought.

Maybe in our lifetime. Preferably before soylent green.
Doesn't help that every time someone wants to build an experimental nuclear facility for research NIMBY's and environmentalists throw a hissy fit too. Turn over an environmentalist, find a Malthusian 90% of the time which is really a bigger problem.

Unfortunately, one of the effects of Global Warming is that temps in Europe will actually get colder. Europe is much warmer than it should be for its latitude due to warm tropical air brought by the jet stream. As the massive glacial ice pack in Greenland melts, it sends millions of tons of ice into the North Atlantic, much more than pre-global warming days. This ice actually cools the ocean so much that the jet stream is altered, and Europe freezes. Temps in Germany will become like those in Moscow.
Well it's a nice theory, doesn't reflect any of the previous melts of the ice cap in greenland though. Even right up to the point where it was 90% receded.

Yeah I trust that story from NYT's about as much as I trust their history to not have hired several people who were also serial plagiarizers.

Oh and after the most recent hike in matinee rates at the theater I figured it would be a while before I went back, but ST:ID is starting to lower my resistance...
Yeah, I haven't been to the theaters since return of the king. And before that it was when I was taking the neighbors kids to go see pokemon movies. Hah. But a buddy of mine who's an avid movie goer said that you can hardly tell the price between matinee/prime tickets now. It's somewhere around $12.50 for matinee and $13.50 for prime in my neck of the woods.

By Bethesda's standards this is a big patch but by industry standards it isn't.
Really? These days most developers simply leave their games broken and non-working after a year.

Anyway, we're definitely below seasonal at this point. This leads me to believe it's going to be a cool, or at least short summer. Bleh!
Ah I dunno about that man, my memory is pretty spotty anymore but I remember springs where we still had good snowfalls right into april where they were covering up my daffodil's and iris, but we had a right down hot, even balmy humid summer. That was when I was a kid so 20ish years ago.

About the same here. We've doubled our amount of snow from last year and broken all sorts of local records. We just got dumped on again a few days ago and more is coming. We've run out of places to store it all!
Hah. Sounds like us about 3-4 years ago, we had some really serious storms roll through parts of the lakes, and where I'm at we had 18ft snow drifts, shut down the 401 several times and all the rest. What's funny is that even with the temperatures last year hitting the mid 70's, it didn't break any records. The record high for yesterday was 76.2F in 2000, the previous time before that was 76.1F in 1945. Though that was the only record broken in the last 60 years. The old records from the 30's and 40's still held with them temps being in the high 70's to low 80's.

It's spring? There's still a 1/8" of freezing rain on everything, it's 24F, and they're calling for 2" of snow between today and tomorrow. Last year it was 76F.

oh ya hard to tell where man has been and where he hasn't in alberta. damn albortians, should be shipped off to texass where you belong.

mmmm clean tar

Considering that's an active tar sands mine, I'm having a problem with your obvious partisanship. Here, let's look at another example.

Then again, if you goto Grande Cache, AB where they removed half a mountain to get at the coal, you can't tell where they did it either. And of course they're removing the other half of another mountain right now, with two more being planned. I should have taken some pictures while I was there but I was a bit busy at the time.

Due to mining there's no such thing as "clean" coal. Yeah, you can burn it quicker, but a drive through Kentucky can be horrifying as to how we get it. The damage we do there is nuts.

But yeah, thumbs up to nuclear. Sensational journalism during the Japan disaster really set it back.
Mining coal isn't the cleanest, but having lived near a major coal mine for awhile out in Alberta there are ways to keep the problems down. Then again where there were coal mines, you can't tell the difference between nature and were humans were either. Same with oil and tar sand removal out there. Ahh Alberta, where oil naturally seeps right into the rivers, and if you need a quick fix for a leaky roof you simply find a natural tar spring that seeps into the river and go get it.

We need cleaner technologies to replace the dirty ones.
Too bad the majority of environmentalists are also against the cleaner technologies, like nuclear. Or against safer reactor designs to replace aging and first generation reactors. And they're against retrofitting existing and old power plants to make them cleaner. Hell here in Ontario we just had the government gut and kill natural gas power plants to appease nimby's and environmentalists(in a vote buying scheme), while shutting down a coal power plant -- which the same environmentalists protested hard against retrofitting to make cleaner. All the while, trying to upsell windmills and solar panels which have been driving the price of hydro up. As fun as that is, Ontario is projected to be the most expensive place in North America for power by 2016.

I bought it because of him as well. Just a heads up the "complete edition" comes out on the 28th in Europe not sure in the Americas, but chances of another complete pack sale going on soonish are pretty good.

Taken in the context that she said it in, that's not necessarily unreasonable. But Blue didn't convey the context, so you'd have to have actually read her post. Easier to just insult her, eh?
Meridian 59 called on the word massive. I like the look of it, but I don't like the gutted, neutered way it's been changed. I keep looking at it and I *might* buy it when it drops in sale price to $4.99, maybe. I mean I got Dragon Age II for free and I said I'd only ever play it if EA gave it to me...well they did. I can wait for this to tank in price too.
