That is a great drive if you like twisty roads and ocean views. My wife doesn't get carsick, but she hates bridges/driving along cliffs, so that drive makes her a bit nervous if you are on the southbound lanes (adjacent to the cliffs). I love that drive.
I live in Southern California, and my wife and I took a trip up to Monterey (on the coast south of SF). On the way back we took PCH and it is some of the most beautiful terrain I have seen (17-Mile drive/Big Sur area). Forest and ocean meet and you driving through the middle. However, it was raining on the way back and I can attest that it is very unnerving. It did not help when I drove over a large rock that had fallen off in a rock slide and thought I was going to be stranded in the middle of nowhere with a flat tire in the wind and rain. Luckily the tire withstood the blow.

Logitech Elite all the way baby. Black so it doesn't show as much dirt (although dust is more visible on the top portion that doesn't get touched much), and I like the action. Additionally, they didn't screw with the Insert/Delete/Home/End/PgUp/PgDn keys, nor the Function key layout. The only bad thing is, of course, the F-Lock status, which is set to "noob" by default, and there is no way to change it (that registry hack posted only seems to work for MS keyboards). Other than that though, it is a great keyboard and I bought one just to use at work.

Wow. Just wow. Why even bother? Is it really worth the $20 they may make to ruin the game's image like this?

And I agree that they took a few too many turns and ended up as a PC (politically correct, not the other PC) Resident Evil. Lame.

I found his blog:

Apparently, he's a gambling junkie now.

What business does an imp, a pinkydemon, and a zombie have in Alpha Labs? Speak quickly!

I've had a blast. Second MMORPG I've played after CoH, and definitely having more fun than I did with that one. Just seems deeper (so far...don't know how my opinion will change over long term).

yeah, this one really sucks...
I'd also have to agree. I DO NOT like the ads that download whole movie trailers, especially because my work does not appreciate users using extra bandwidth to download things like MOVIE TRAILERS Please Blue, do not let these kinds of ads on your site.

Yeah, no way is it 35%. Maybe he missed the dash between the 3 and the 5.

...but I can see the number rising. I wouldn't have even tried Firefox if it were not for all the growing positive buzz about it. I would have been one of the 95% IE users, but now I guess I'm a minority (which is kind of a good thing here).

Firefox is free, and pretty good. I've been using it about 75% of the time for the past month. Integration, stability, everything is great. It will even copy over your bookmarks from IE.

So, 128 meg 9800 pro = normal mode = same tex size as ultra but compressed = "really really good" = same as ultra but with some artifacts = sounds like there won't really be much on screen difference or gameplay difference between ultra (which none of us can play till 4th Quarter) and normal. I hope.
You'd be surprised how much DXT compression can crap-out the texture fidelity. Hopefully you won't notice the difference if you don't see it in Ultra as a comparison.

Q: Normal maps = making it look like there are really more polys on something than there actually are = like bump mapping but better? Does Far Cry use normal maps or bump maps?
Yes, they are essentially the same thing. Both employ storing data in the texture for lighting calculations to give the appearance of a surface much more finely tesselated than the actual surface the texture is on.

Sweet, first I've heard of OGG used in a game.
Actually, quite a few games use Ogg Vorbis these days, I think. Someone mentioned UT2K3/4, but even RTS games like Age of Myth and War of the Ring (that I worked on) used it. It's a nice free alternative to MP3, and easy to code for.

As for the comment about not having the power to run the game in Ultra mode for a few years, I actually appreciate games that code ahead of what's currently available instead of "dumbing" the game down to meet min spec like a lot of companies will do. We can all go back and enjoy the game some more in a few months/years.
