  • I play quite often and have one chr up to 16, and two more at level 12 or 13... With the various new free content, you should have free quests that will keep you going until at least level 12, and possibly further. They added a few new quests such…
  • Mine was a Timex... (TS1000) (Image)
  • Have you also made sure that the cables are nice and snug on the drive? I would recommend (while the PC is off, of course) disconnecting and reconnecting the drive cables and power connectors, just to rule out a loose cable somewhere... I had this…
  • My guess is that you may have some bad sectors on your hard drive. Try using a disk repair tool to check for bad sectors. We had one such problem with a PC here at work. One of the Windows system files happened to fall on the bad sector. Luckily…
  • Are you folks still playing Guild Wars? Haven't seen any recent posts in this thread. I only have Nightfall, but if you happen to be playing, I have a ranger by the handle "Xyphus". If you see me in-game, say "Hi". I have yet…
  • You can try this link. Otherwise, I think I can probably dig out my old Audigy2 driver CD... http://www.softwarepatch.com/utilities/audigyzs.html Also, did some looking and Creative still offer them on their official download site... Try here fo…
  • And if you feel like it, you could always just ditch MacOS all together and install the PPC version of Ubuntu or Kubuntu... :) I put Kubuntu on my iBook and haven't looked back. (Not that OSX is bad or anything, I just personally like Linux bette…
  • I finished the game on the 1st setting... Personally, being a big fan of the first one (and it's add-on pack), I really enjoyed the game. I'm going back through again on next difficulty. I did grab a couple "Siege-Mods" this time around…
  • (Quote) Haven't had a chance to try dual monitors yet. I would think that it may be easier with nVidia hardware over ATI. Linux support from ATI has always been rather shoddy. Maybe the newest batch of drivers will make that easier. At least wi…
  • I dual-boot with SuSE 10.0 and WindowsXP on my gaming rig. I am running SuSE 9.3 on my server. Played around with a LiveCD version of Ubuntu on my iBook. Very snappy. I'd say for a new-to-linux user, SuSE or Ubuntu is a good choice. (SuSE is KD…
  • Have you looked into Mercury Mail Server? It's made by the same people who make Pegasus, and it's free..
  • I would definitely check the jumpers... One of the most overlooked (and simple to fix) problems with adding new drives is that the jumpers may be set to the same setting... Also check to see if maybe your drive letters have changed. Occasionally …
  • I really get into all types of electronica music. Of course, I'm stuck (temporarily) on a 56k dialup. I'll be bookmarking the site to check back on it once we get our DSL hooked up. (With any luck, it will be next week...)
  • Or use one of the motherboards that offer RAID... Such as the KR7A-133R (or older boards like the KT7A-RAID, etc... choose your flavour) Then you will get a total of 4 IDE channels with 2 devices each.. Grand total of 8 devices... :)
  • Hmmm... I seem to be hearing Supertramp... :)
  • (Quote) Yup, gotta agree with you there... Definitely the best... :) (Unless someone comes up with a Martha of Borg or something...) :D
  • (Quote) Also, once you can afford it, you can purchase a house in Skingrad. When you go to pick out your furnishings, you can also hire a maid who will move in to your house to tidy things up and cook for you. If you are a vamp, you now have a bu…
  • (Quote) Not much of a benchmark braggart, but I am an avid gamer. I tried to get the best CPU I could at the time, just in case I am forced into going with a PCI-E system in the future. (I figure I should only need a different video card and mothe…
  • I am still using AS3 myself. Of course, that's because I bought a decent size tube of it, and there's still plenty to go around... Of course, with my new build in a few weeks, I'm going to buy a tube of AS5. I'll keep the AS3 around for when I bu…
  • (Quote) Just checked the link. The RAM does look pretty impressive. Reviews were pretty positive across the board as well. And the price is right in line with what I was wanting to spend. I'll definitely be considering this kit when I order th…
  • Did some browsing over at NewEgg... The X2 4400+ caught my eye. It has the 1MB cache on it, is a dual core (of course), and runs at 2.2Ghz... Anyone using one of these? Do you think it would be a good alternative to the 4000+? With nVidia now o…
  • Hmmm.. I guess what I will do is check the pricing at the end of January and see what the best "bang for the buck" CPU might be... The more I think about it, the more I am leaning towards the X2 CPUs... The dual cores are really startin…
  • Hmm.. I haven't even looked at the Opterons... I didn't think of those as viable options.. I may have to check them out... (but depending on pricing, I may be better off with the X2 or 4000+) Will the board I purchased even work with the Optero…
  • (Quote) I did notice that the X2 CPUs seem to run at a lower clock. (2.2GHz vs 2.4GHz). Do you think I would see a large impact on performance by a 200MHz deficit? Does the extra core make up in "snappiness" for applications and games? …
  • The wife and I took a shopping trip to Gurnee, Illinois (Gurnee Mills shops) over the weekend... There was an internet cafe there which also sold various odds and ends. (Games, etc..) But right in the middle of the store was a stack of new 19&quo…
  • I guess I'll be the odd one out and recommend SuSE Linux. They just released version 10.0. Install is a breeze, and the distro comes with many quality packages and apps. They have recently changed how they release software. What used to be the &…
  • (Quote) YMMV = Your Milage May Vary (you may get more or less than the same as another) As for the cooler on the Leadtek card, it more or less makes the card a 2-slot solution, just like the Ultra. (Which is no biggie for me since I have an ATI 9…
  • I just ordered the Leadtek 6800GT myself. After reading several reviews and checking into the card. It seems that the Leadtek card uses the same cooling solution as the Ultra. Every review I read said that it was a breeze to clock the GT to the U…
