I run AVG free on XP, fully up to date, and haven't had any problems with Steam, Bioshock, or anything else. It's never given me a false positive. Or any positive, for that matter. Maybe I should feed it a test virus sometime.

News Comments > Wing Commander Soundtrack
8. CIC FTW Aug 28, 2007, 13:25 Tom
 
This seems pretty dumb, because there's a ton of Wing Commander music available for free at:
http://www.wcnews.com/music/

This includes the full soundtracks to WC1 and WC2 as played on the MT-32 - THE ultimate sound module back in the day. It's still a very special piece of hardware - full of character and the Wing Commander music uses it pretty well.

You know what's real crap? I'm paying $60 to Charter now for 5Mbps/512kbps. That is crap. Charter sucks!!! But they're the ONLY option here. Curse them. Although, Verizon is even worse. They wired my whole town for FiOS, except for my street. They refuse to wire my street. Thanks a lot, Verizon.

2. Why link to pay-only stories? Aug 27, 2007, 13:29 Tom
 
The story "Smaller transistors suffer from tiny flaws" is only readable to paid subscribers of New Scientist. (No, hudsondog doesn't work.)

Whoa. Brush up on your history a bit and then see if the joke makes any sense. Hint: Pay attention to the dates.

1. Music in Vista slows network performance Aug 22, 2007, 10:28 Tom
 
This is actually true! I just confirmed it on my work PC. File transfer was capped at around 10MB/sec while music was playing, went up to 25MB/sec when I paused the music. Good thing I'm not running this crap at home. It will be interesting to find out if this is really due to DRM, or just a monumental screw up - I'm guessing the latter...

How did you enable AA/AF? I tried forcing it with the NVIDIA control panel, but it had no effect in-game. Still lots of jaggies.

25. Wow. Aug 20, 2007, 20:48 Tom
 
I just played through the demo on an E6700 / 8800GTS and it was perfectly smooth. Didn't bother upgrading my drivers, and it still ran fine. It would be nice to find out what specific issues these drivers address. I'm not installing any beta drivers unless I really need to.

This headline is sensationalist crap. Nothing here is obsolete or becoming obsolete. The headline completely misrepresents the situation, as anyone who bothers to read the article will see.

4. Re: cool weather good for 360? Aug 7, 2007, 00:29 Tom
 
I wonder if places with cold weather can help keep a 360 alive longer

Sounds like a great question for the "Everybody Votes Channel". Oh wait, wrong console.

That is sad. He inspired others, including my favorite...

"QML- Was Blahbalicious inspired by any other movie?

Avatar- It was inspired by some of the other Quake movies. I dont think it would exist if Operation Bay Shield hadn't been done, but we ended up scrapping most of the Die Fette Faust ideas."

This is one of the worst threads I've ever seen on Blue's News. Congrats on taking things to a new low, guys. Keep it up and one of these days Blue will just remove the comment feature. I know I'd be thinking about it if it was my site.

3. What's new... Jul 29, 2007, 21:55 Tom
 
In case anyone is wondering what's new, here's the link (for the SDK):

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=529F03BE-1339-48C4-BD5A-8506E5ACF571&displaylang=en#new

Not really anything interesting, except the list of stuff that will be omitted from the next SDK release. My goodness, they're removing DirectMusic and DirectPlay! What a shame. Hahaha...

A once great franchise indeed. Can you believe it's been 16 years since then?

News Comments > Colin McRae: DIRT Patch
8. Re: No subject Jul 23, 2007, 15:57 Tom
 
I tried the PC demo with a wheel and messed around with the controls for saturation and linearity for like an hour - could never find anything that was anywhere NEAR drivable. (I was stunned to see proper support for multiple controllers, however.) I have no problems with other games like LFS, RBR, GTR, etc. When turning the wheel, the in-game wheel wouldn't turn much until I reached a certain point and then WHAM huge change, and the car veers off to the side. Wheels and analog sticks don't work the same, but this game seems to treat them the same.

I spent about half an hour searching around their forum and it looked like nobody was able to overcome this problem...

Seems it was a design decision to just not support a steering wheel. How retarded is that? Oh wait, this is Codemasters we're talking about.
