The only reason Canada doesn't have to build up a military is because they have the US as a neighbor.

They stopped being funny when they thought they had to resort to swearing to be hip or edgy. Very sophomoric, but I guess they were catering to their fanbase.

This just confirms why I dont play MMORPGs. If you need a program to play the game for you, it's too tedious for the player.

QFT! It stops being a game at that point.

Well, that is only part of the picture. The other is than fine young men and women that might consider a career in law enforcement shy away because of all the negativity the media creates for cops these days.

Great info, but facts like these won't change people's perception of "reality". The green movement is way too political now to reverse course, and it is starting to generate revenue, which will only further its continued existence.

In the end, hate it all you want. Just never forget how much you paid for it.

I do agree that door comment was pretty lame though, and love the Portal reference.

3. Re: Why people hate vista Feb 5, 2008, 12:21 Atomic
 
This article is right on; we had the same reaction when we went to a new state of art ERP system at work. People freaked, said it sucked, but it wasn't the software.

Vista's biggest problem is that too many people are using it on systems that can't handle it. The computer manufacturer's don't help by selling systems with 512 or even 1GB of RAM. Vista needs at least 2GB to run decent, more to run well. And to further exacerbate the problem, they ship with Aero enabled by default on systems with no decent GPU in them.

It never ceases to amaze me how someone can complain about something offered for free.

As far as the guy looking like a Pixar character, well duh, only so many ways to draw a cartoon HUMAN and not have it have similarities to SOMETHING.

Can someone explain to me why specific game tweaks are needed in a driver? Wasn't one of the points of standards like DX(x) and OpenGL to prevent game specific coding?

No need for respawns; when a player dies, they simply take over one of the computer players. Each side plays until objective reached, or lose through attrition.

24. Video card shopping Jul 6, 2007, 15:31 Atomic
 
Gaming gurus;

For the first time in a long time, I will have some extra cash to upgrade my aging machine. I have already decided on Intel Core2 Duo, but what video card is best right now under $300? I prefer Nvidia, but will consider ATI. TIA.

33. Re: Well crap.. Jan 23, 2007, 21:31 Atomic
 
Good question; not sure. I don't even know if one or two mentions of it trigger it. For example, I had no problems yesterday. Bats had several posts today though, so maybe there is a counter and a threshold.

I hate the stupid thing anyway. Never understood why you need technology to manage people.. guess it is the same thinking where people want technology to manage their children. But I digress... thanks for the fix though Batman! Quite kind...
