Out of the Blue

Working on this update pushed it past midnight... I was going to sneak it in as part of Friday's news, but hey, here we are on Saturday, so why not just go with it?

I think I've tracked down a problem that has been making me crazy(er) lately, as cutting and pasting things on my Win2K machine would sometimes fail to work, and even worse, would occasionally crash whatever app I was pasting into. I peaked in my temp directory and found a pair of files there, and deleting them seemed to clear up the problem completely and immediately. I have no idea how that worked, but boy am I glad it did.

72. I feel like blahinh Aug 31, 2003, 13:10 wasrad
 
So I got a 9600 256mb at a local PC parts sotre, Chips & Memory, for $140.

For some reason, instead of going to go get my fucking card from the back, teh guy just stood there and took the next customer. I waited 10 minutes, literally, until I said something then the guy went to go get the part. I guess they have a system to where they put it in the computer and it prints out in the back room, cuz walking for 10 secnonds is apparantly a hard thing to do. I asked why it took so long and the guy said something about having some sort of system to make sure its the right order, wtf ever, and said thats just the way it is because they have SUCH CHEAP PRICES. I guess he wanted me to suck his dick while waiting for him to go get a damn video card and DVD player. What a shitty, lazy system

Anyhow, got it home, got it installed. Just a note, I was using a GFmx-400.

oh

fucking

shit


I had never in my life really played anything at 1280x1024, i tried it but it was WAY to slow on that card. This card is faster in high rez than that card in low rez(1024x768).

I cant believe just how differnt PC games are at that high of a rez with 16x AF.

Im happy. This is $140 VERY WELL SPENT.

I havent felt so excited abot a piece of PC hardware since i got my STB blackmagic (Voodoo2 for you n00bs) years ago, which was my first REAL 3d card, although I was running a permedia 2 at the time.

I will eventually move to 1600x1200 when i get a new monitor that supports that rez.

I do kind of wonder if AA is really necccesary anymore now that we can play at such a high rez with good FPS. It jsut seema like a gimmick now.

in conclussion, all I have to say is w00t
