That video was exciting, just because I can't count how many times (per day even) I'd love to just ram the guy in front of me to get him out of my way.

Me too! It's a subtle change, but I think it helps distinguish between the sections a little better -- especially with longer posts, or when a section has lots of links

I am undecided on the gap thing, perhaps if it was a smaller gap?

Oh, and thanks nin. I changed the startup option you talked about. Then when I tried to load the game, it stopped on the Blue Screen (huzzah!), and said something about NV drivers....

yeah, so I went and updated my Nvidia drivers, it works!
(Next youll be telling me im supposed to update windows more than once every two years).

Interesting, I havent figured how to shrink the UI yet, but I know it cna be done. I think I need to play with it some more and get a better feel for it and build orders etc.

Overall pretty good, im thinking a few players on a massive map might be a lot of fun.

Anyways, thanks nin.

HA!

And I'm the same way when it comes to drivers, and generally take the "if it's not broke, don't fuck with it" view.

That's why it took me upwards of a week to figure out my World of Warcraft issue where I kept getting dropped every 2-10 minutes. Ended up being the firmware on the wireless router, and at that point, it was about the last thing I could think of to try.

Glad it turned out well! I've got the demo myself but haven't installed it yet - hope to this weekend.

Once again, I'd like to ask you all to wash your hands. Not because you're dirty, but because other people don't wash their hands. After coming of the stall. But they'll check their hair in the mirror. And then put their hands on the same door handle you need to use to exit the bathroom.

Trust me. Wash your hands. And then use a paper towel on the door handle to open the door.

<shudder.>

edit: And use soap, dammit! None of this half second "rinse and run" bullshit.

Exactly. I don't touch anything put paper towels in the bathroom - sick.

At my last job I always kept a mental list of the people that didn't wash their hands. When I was in IT - thank god for remote control! VNC for the win!

It is funny - there are a stack of paper towels on the floor near the door in all of our bathrooms - you would think they would get the hint to put a garbage there!!! Also - when I look at that handle - when was the last time that nasty thing was cleaned! ugh. They clean the bathrooms here every 2 hours - take a fuggin split second and check the handle!

(I don't touch anyone's phone, keyboard, mouse, etc.)

Same - it just makes me decrease my font size even more.

Man you guys are all so sensitive The likelihood of you catching anything is virtually zero unless you lick your hands thoroughly on a regular basis.

I always wash my hands after a sit-downer but for a pee? Not always.
