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.

Ripa: I didn't think she had that in her, and I for sure didn't think that NBC had it in them! Where did that clip actually come from, anybody know? Ant?

It was from Saturday Night Live.

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.

Here is a good site that talks about different services you can disable to make XP a bit pepier:

28. Re: Doom3 machinima engine, not game eng Aug 3, 2004, 11:41 Atomic
 
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.

Yep. It will definitely summon the Halsy. Kinda like saying Beetlejuice three times.

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.

The only thing you've proven is that you are an insufferable boor. These message boards used to be fun before they became a platform for your propaganda.

Also, Dan is right on the money.

6. Power problems Jun 25, 2004, 13:02 Atomic
 
Blue,

You may know this, but FYI for those that don't.

A UPS is great for surges and spikes, but it doesn't do squat for just as deadly brownouts and sags. That is, unless it has a line conditioner built-in (also called AVR -Automatic Voltage Regulation). A UPS without AVR is simply a surge supressor with a back up battery. So, make sure you have one with line conditioning.

I don't think people realize how much bad power contributes to computer problems and general electronics failure. Even if the power is clean coming in, things like an A/C unit or refrigerator on the same circuit as your PC can put huge load load on the circuit every time they cycle.

A few hundred for XP? You can pick up XP Home Upgrade for $90. Well worth the price for a current OS

Exactly. I hear that "few hundred bucks" argument all the time, and it's lame. I mean, where do you people shop?

Games are $40 to $50, and you have no problem with buying a game, which is a limited time affair. Yet you balk at spending twice that for your OS, which will probably last you several years?

I don't get it.
