17. Re: Looking for some advice Jun 8, 2005, 12:39 Atomic
 
Bronco,

My gaming group switched from TeamSpeak to Ventrilo several months ago and haven't looked back. Ventrilo just has better clarity (and I believe lower server overhead, depending on the codec used).

Also, I use a Plantronics USB headset and both Teamspeak and Ventrilo work fine with it, so if you don't want to get a new soundcard, that is a good option.

Nothing. There's no card you can buy in that price range that is significantly better than a 4200.

Appreciate the confirmation. That is kinda what I was feeling based on reviews. Thanks!

What's the opinion on the best video card to get around the $100 - $150 range? I have an aging TI4200 and want an interim upgrade before I completely revamp this summer to PCI-E.

TIA.

Let's talk about Michael Moore . . . . I wonder if the actions of Moore and others (Liberal Rawkers for Change) backfired.Did people get tired of hearing them? or did they actaully spur more conservatives to vote?

Absolutely, and I eluded to it earlier. The numbers certainly seem to indicate that.

When 200 million people don't vote versus the 100 million that do I'd say that's indicative of a problem, wouldn't you?

Way to play with the numbers there, guy. But when have you ever let facts stop you? 85-100 million of our population cannot vote, because they are not old enough, infirmed, or in prison. (Stats are from the US Census).

I grew tired of this whole process months ago, but seeing you blow your top has made it all worthwhile.

This proves one thing; that the lunatic fringe (Michael Moore, the 527's like moveon.org, and the Halsy's of the world) had absolutely ZERO impact on this election. In fact, it seems they did nothing but motivate the Republican base to get out and vote. GG Libs.

Now we wait and see how maturely they handle the outcome. HAHA.. I can't even keep a straight face typing that. We all know they will act like the big babies they did for 4 years after 2000.

Take your own advice and MOVE ON.

I also think it's too bad that the whole Iraq thing has tarnished Powell so much, he definately could have been the first black president.

Bill Clinton was our first black President.

You realize this is a trailer for the Director's Cut DVD release of the original that came out in 1970? Right?

Wow, really? I just thought Robert Duvall had a major facelift.

Of course I knew that .. which is why I said "back to those roots"...

Looks interesting. Nice to see Lucas is capable of dark subject matter. Let's hope he gets back to those roots in Episode 3.

THE DARKNESS IS THE PITS!!!!!!!!!!

I would have to agree. It isn't natural in some places; it hangs like a curtain. It almost has a physical layer to it. Hard to explain, but I don't like it.

Game is playable at 1024x768 medium to low quality on my Ti4800.

Save for the awesome engine, nothing original here. Take 2 parts DOOM, stir in System Shock, bake.

Enahs,

I think that is an Office XP thing isn't?

If so, try this:
http://www.sys.ilstu.edu/docs/languagetoolbar.html

If not, try this:
# Click the Start Button.
# Select Control Panel option.
# Double-Click the “Regional and Language Options” icon.
# Click on the “Languages” tab.
# Click the “Details…” button.
# Click the “Language Bar” button.
# Remove the checkmark from the “Show Language Bar…” option.
# Click OK.

Hey Blue, how about you add a Halsy's FUD Link of the Day? He posts them pretty regular anyway, might as well give him props.
