Out of the Blue

It's always something with the little Gunnar-man, who has hot spots we are treating on each shoulder. Hotspots are skin irritations that tend to not heal because when dogs get them, they tend to bite and scratch at the affected area. The thing is that the shoulders are not easy to reach, and he just tends to scratch at the air when trying to get at them, but these are still problematic because Hudson the wonder dog won't stop helpfully licking at his wounds. As a result, on the Vet's recommendation the G-man is now wearing little boy-sized t-shirts to keep her from keeping his hotspots from healing. This is kind of cute, but this is offset by how embarrassing it is to think the neighbors are assuming we are dressing him up as a fashion statement.

Yo Macheads,

I'm looking at this...
http://tinyurl.com/2r86fm
edit: iMac 17" 2 gig, w/ ATI Radeon X1600 graphics (128 meg)

Is the video card on that gonna be worth anything? I was gonna bump the ram to 2 gig and the drive to 250...

Thanks for any input!



Any pictures of G in a shirt Blue?

Driver games.... Jan 31, 2007, 11:04
Jan 31, 2007, 11:04
 
So I got a hankerin' to play through the Driver series, and remember that I had already played the first one all the way through (I thought), until I came to the last mission last night and realized it was the reason I QUIT playing the first one - damn that last mission is IMPOSSIBLE.

Has anyone beat the last mission of Driver (the first game on the PS1) without a cheat code? The distance is a hell of a ways to go with those Illinois Nazis chasing you the whole time....

(I love ebay and half.com - got the games for a couple bucks a piece)

Yo Macheads,

Hmmm... kinda skimpy on the graphics RAM at only 128MB.

Since the video cards are hard-wired into those, I think I'd bite the bullet and go for the 20"/2.16Ghz

That way you already have the 250GB drive, you get a slightly faster processor and a nicer screen, but most importantly, you can bump the graphics to 256MB.

If you also get the 2GB of RAM (which is a good idea), it's another $300 out of the wallet all together, but I'd imagine you'll be happier with that for longer if you're planning to install Windows and do any gaming.

If you only want it to run OSX, then disregard that and go with your initial pick -- 128MB of graphics RAM is plenty.

Ah, didn't see that option...thank you.

But yeah, $1700 is a bit much...$1500 was kinda my cap, and that's being generous. Then again, tax refund time is near.

What I'm looking at is running limited games in XP w/ bootcamp, and doing my best to divorce myself from Windows. Anymore, what little time I have for gaming goes to GW, WOW, and the Nintendo. WOW will run on OSX, so that just leaves GW...

I've pretty much put my foot down that I will not be buying Vista. And if that means more console gaming, so be it.

Thanks for the ideas!

Ah! Well if it's really just GW, I bet you'd be perfectly fine with only 128MB of graphics RAM -- except for possibly in crowded districts, but that's hardly a big problem, and easy to fix by just going to the last one in the list (which I always found to be much nicer in GW anyway).

TBH, I think the smaller screen - and thus lower native resolution - would be a better match for gaming on that X1600 anyway..

Yeah, I beat the last mission in Driver.. getting across New York with the angry secret service after you, right?

I seem remember the key being having them hit you from behind at certain key times. I don't remember very well, it has been a while. All the same, I definitely remember beating that mission, no cheats. It is possible.

Yup - which the story has some issues - and you just automagically get thrown into saving the president. It was a great game for it's time, and the physics are well ahead of a lot of games even today.

But - it seems as though you just have to get lucky - so I will keep trying. Hay, can't complain, I only paid 2-3 bux for it. eheheheh

Well, the drama of the puppy appears to be over.
Just recieved a call from the University of Minnesota, and after 5 weeks on clavamox our pup has kicked the infection. I hadn't brought it up lately as I was just hoping this would take care of it and we would be done.

Thank you all for the well wishes along the way. Just appears it needed some extra time with the drugs.

Good thing too - as we pickup "Twig" on the 9th, a 2 month old yellow lab/golden retreiver as a play pal for Bell. (picked him out last weekend - brought Bell with to see the litter and she got along great with the mom and all 13 pups that are about the size of 2 adult palms.)

I don't want anyone to spew into a diatribe about it - it is just kind of odd coming from a Republican. I don't have any issue with the compensation unless it was done along the lines of the scams we have read of as of late. On top of that, if a company is in bankruptcy protection (NWA) I think the majority of compensation for all execs needs to be cut - period.

There is a ridiculous amount of room for improvement, but unless the shareholders cause an uprising - nothing will happen.

I love aqua teen hunger force!

I should not walk so that a child may live.

Chickens are a part of the cycle of nature, which is why we play chickenball in the house.

It seems almost fitting that ATHF would cause panic in Boston. South Jersey and Boston have been at cold war for centuries. It was bound to boil over one of these days.

Well, the world's ending on 12/21/2012 so the Californians wont have much time to get rich selling regular lightbulbs on the black market.

I have bought compact fluorescent bulbs and they don't seem too bad but when I put on George Noory to hear all the bad ways the world is going to end even before 12/21/2012 they advertise for C Crane Co. who sell LED lightbulbs that are supposed to save 90% on electric bill but I never check to see how much they are or if they work well.

Me too, although the newer episodes have gone downhill in my opinion.

Btw, have you seen the trailer for the ATHF movie yet.
