had the same problem at 48%

all i did was go and launch the game anyways and it went to the screen where it says it needs to download a bit more before launch and that kickstarted it to download the patch

The name has grown on me. I still don't like it and it gets confusing when you have a verbal conversation about it but I don't see the name being a reason to keep myself away from it... now the final pricing on the other hand..

I don't regret the purchase. Hooray for Arena mode in a week or 2! Too bad it will only start out as single player.

Oh wow! I would be happy if they took one of the PC Jedi Knight games and just added Wii functionality. I found those games to be great.

I was thinking the same thing as Hump. That's no release date.

...else we left the NES on all night, and we liked it!

I never liked the fears of having my father or brother turn the system off when I wasn't around!!

Well 1.99 would be good for the NES games. I know it seems like I'm really nitpicking about prices but if you think about it, you're not going to buy just one.

10 NES games @ 4.50 = 45
10 NES games at 2 = 20

a 4.50 minimum for a NES game i could download and play for free on my PC is a bit too much. i hope they do bundles or something.

So...if I were to get the current model of the DS (IE the non-lite version)...could someone please post some links as to what I have to do to get SCUMM running on it? And what other emus can I run on it?

I've got the M3 adapter. I didn't do any weird bios flashing or anything. Not sure why people even do that. It runs SCUMMVM and the built in software will run GBA, DS, GB and GBC and I believe NES games. SNES is a real pain in the ass to get running and I haven't been able to do it 100% successfully and gave up.

I got the SD version as opposed to CF for no other reason besides my own convenience. Whichever you choose make sure you check the M3 wiki link below for card compatibility.

http://m3wiki.emuparadise.org/index.php/M3

http://m3adapter.com/main.htm

Oh and why are you getting the regular version. Lite comes out in 5 days. I was noticing the other day that I can't even play the regular outside in sunlight because the screen is too dark.

Fortunately, I'm not in any contract although I told them I was looking for a full time career in order to get my promotion a few months back. The trouble with the internship not paying well is that I have bills and rent to pay and if the internship leads to nowhere I have lost the stability of my unionized full time job that has the definite potential to move up to 30k and full benefits w/ job security any day now.

Thanks for the advice so far.

I just got off the phone from an unexpected phone pre-interview for tech support downtown. Interview next week. :O The first one so far.

11. New Grad IT Opportunities, GTA Jun 2, 2006, 12:53 ExcessDan
 
Hey, I know some of you bluesnewsers are in the GTA and area so I figure I might throw this out there. I'm done my university undergrad in information technology and I really really really need to get out of my current job that is killing me inside (it's unionized so I have to stick around until I find something with equal or better pay and permanent). Any ideas of places to look for new grad opportunities that don't look for tonnes of experience? I've been checking workopolis.ca and craigslist and on occasion rogers, IBM and a couple other companies.

I'm probably looking for something in a PC support role since I have some minimal help desk and lots of customer service experience but what I'm really interested in is networking but lack in depth experience (reading through CCNA books currently but certification is probably well off in the future).

Thanks.

Unfortunately for me my work was a 5 minute bike ride away. Also it was extra busy at work due to people not being able to get to work and the heat.

I'm looking to move out of the slum of Jane and Finch now that I'm done school here. Where are good locations to live in Toronto that are also affordable?
