No problem! But DAMN, I didn't mean to be the main distribution point for this file. I've had to take it down before this switch catches fire. Please have someone who has already downloaded it make a torrent. And next time, please don't tell all of Eastern Europe about my links.

If they just released a new version that is being supported, its not abandonware.

Sometimes the "latest and greatest" is crap. Case in point: Sid Meier's Pirates. They came out with a brand new super-duper directx-9 version a couple of years ago... it was the worst thing that Sid Meier has ever done. Go look at the forums, they're nearly totally dead, and the only mods that exist are minor graphics modifications. In the meantime, I'm having an absolute blast playing the original Pirates under Pocket Commodore 64 on my PDA.

I'm sure you die-hard AMD fanbois are probably going to foam at the mouth and throw out some stats and quake-test graphs. Whatever...


Naw I still have my old Celeron 350 OC'ed to 450 running as a mail server heck it been all most ten years now!!

And I have a 1400mhz Athlon-XP OC'ed to 1800mhz, running as a file server, and heck its been going for 5 years now.

I'm also looking into sub-$1000 laptops... I'd love a core 2 duo but all of the sub-$1000 ones I can find come with Intel graphics. I'd rather take the AMD turion (or whatever the hell its called) with an Nvidia geforce chip in it, thanks.

Wow I gotta go wipe this foam off of my mouth....

Sex is so strange. I never meet anyone who would want to have sex with their daughter or sister. It's "intolerable!" "Never!" "I'd be ashamed!"

But then everyone loves sex anyway. I'm starting to think our love for sex is just one of those things that make us all into hypocritical/inconsistent bastards.

2. Re: Hellgate hesitance Jul 31, 2007, 22:04 skyguy
 

OK, I've been reading about Hellgate, and its got me hungry for another vamp:bloodlines style game. I know it can't be as good, but it being an fps style rpg with level-ups and cool weapons makes it seem like it may be in the same class as vamp. Maybe I'm wrong though since I know so little about the genre... bloodlines is the first rpg I've actually had the desire to play all the way through, and boy did I enjoy it. I think I may buy Hellgate when it comes out just 'cause it reminds me of it.

Oh, but hell no to paying for multiplayer or new items or whatever. They'll have to be happy with the $50 I pay them for the box with the CD and 5 page manual in it.

"None of the games on Steam (AFAIK) run on Linux."

Defcon has a native Linux port.

"The Oceanside Hotel level is one of the best, in any game, ever."

I am going to have to agree with this statement.

sure, they have for a few years now, they've been making GPUs since they were trying to hype RAMBUS memory, if I remember correctly.

News Comments > Intel to Fight Game Cheating?
32. Re: ... Jun 21, 2007, 22:38 skyguy
 
"The US wouldn't allow it unless there was an easy way around it - they "need" to be able to read everyones email. Just like after 9/11 email from around the world was routed through the US, I learnt from an engineer at NTL (UK ISP). The US likes to police the world and technologies like this don't exactly fill me with confidence."

So use an encryption algorithm that wasn't designed by the US government... you can encrypt your e-mail however the hell you want. Its yours. I'm sorry, the US government does not have magical wiretaps on everyone in the world's computers, they do not control the software that you choose to use, and they do not have "secret keys" to all encryption algorithms used in the world. If you really believe that the government can read any e-mail no matter how it was encrypted then you should start wearing tinfoil hats to keep the government from injecting the voices into your head.

"It's already amusing that email encryption is fine as long as the US has a key to defeat it"

sigh.... and what exactly makes you believe that the US government has everyone in the world's PGP/GPG keys? Try it out sometime... you can generate your own key with entirely open-source tools. There is no way for the federal government to get a hold of it without confiscating or hacking into the machine on which the private key resides.
