  1. From Annandtech http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=2686&p=1 Last post.... Have fun...
  2. Conan the Barbarian Mongol General: Conan, what is best in life? Conan: To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women! and Thulsa Doom: Contemplate it - on the tree of woe.
  3. The Thing: Clark: I dunno what the hell's in there, but it's weird and pissed off, whatever it is. Aliens: Apone: All right, sweethearts, what are you waiting for? Breakfast in bed? Another glorious day in the corps! A day in the Marine Corps is like a day on the farm. Every meal's a banquet! Every paycheck a fortune! Every formation a parade! I LOVE the corp!! and of course the classic, Hudson: Hey Vasquez, have you ever been mistaken for a man? Vasquez: No, have you?
  4. Dont you mean: Tyrell: The light that burns twice as bright burns half as long and you have burned so very, very brightly Roy. Look at you, you're the prodigal son, you're quite a prize. Sorry Bladerunner is one of my all time favorites, I just had to correct that. . heheh
  5. From the Lord of the Rings : Return of the King Extended Edition: Saruman: Shall we not take council as we once did? Shall we not have peace? Theoden: We shall have peace. We shall have peace when you answer for the burning of the Westfold and the children that lie dead there! We shall have peace when the lives of the soldiers whose bodies were hewn even as they lay dead against the gates of the Hornburg are avenged! When you hang from a gibbet for the sport of your own crows we shall have peace Saruman: Gibbits and crows! DOTARD! What is the house of Eorl but a thatched barn where brigands drink in the reek, and their brats roll around on the floor with their dogs!" And what do *you* want, Gandalf Greyhame? Let me guess. The keys of Orthanc? Or perhaps the keys of Barad-Dur itself? And the crowns of the seven kings and the rods of the five wizards? Its a shame that scene was taken out of the theatrical release...
  6. Or you could get an explorer shell replacement.... Like Directory Opus (http://www.gpsoft.com.au) or Total Commander (http://www.ghisler.com/) Directory Opus is very good, used to use it a lot back in the Amiga days, now its a different beast to what it was back then of course..
  7. I used to feel the same way, In fact even though I'm now married, I still hold this holiday with disdain... Its like all the single people get the "Hey youre single so you suck and cant ejnoy this holiday, in fact we are going to make you feel miserable as possible because you ARE single" message... Plus I dont agree with the cards being given out at school.. what about the kids who never got ANY (I was one of them, even tho I handed out loads of cards to all the girls)... makes you feel like crap and then people come on and say "plenty of fish in the sea" or "love is all around" doesnt make a blind bit of difference that you still felt like crap... Even the point of it (the holiday and why its here) is completely lost in the commericalism of it all just like Halloween, and Christmas.. Its just a way for people to get rich off the sheep of the herd that have to do the same as everyone else... Saying that, yes I bought my wife a gift and a card (I would be a dead man if I didnt), yes I have conformed to the herd.... But its a begrudging conformity... I dont need a special day to tell my wife/girlfriend I love her... I tell her this every day, and prove it on several days thruout the year whenever I please... and thats the way it should be, we dont need a commercial holiday to do it.... grumble grumble... Rant mode offf.
  8. Bladerunner: Roy:I’ve seen things, you people wouldn’t believe, hmmm. ... attack ships on fire off the shoulder of orion. I’ve watched c beams glitter in the dark near the tannhauser gate. All those moments... will be lost in time... like tears in rain... ... time to die ...
  9. Well, seeing there are other silly off topic's here (after all its OFF TOPIC )... what is your favorite movie quote and which movie is it from... This can be a one liner or a scene, just make sure you put the character's names in there etc... For example: You get the drift.... now for my quote: From Monty Python and the Holy Grail French Knight: Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelt of elderberires!
  10. Mine's easy as I always have the Chillout station tuned in on Digitally Imported.. http://www.di.fm/ Chillout station... :shake:
  11. Thats enough to put you off burgers for life.... I havent been that grossed out since I followed the StinkyMeat project (http://www.stinkymeat.net/stinkymeat/day1/) back in 2000...
  12. Instead of messing with floppies (which are the most unreliable form of media nowadays, They dont make floppies like they used to)... Intgrated your drivers into the XP Disk... See here http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showto...29entry356029 Nice, easy, and really no hassle at all
  13. Yes, but does it work with a NVRAID 0 array??? Last time I tried Fedora on it it killed my entire array on install which is not good... I just need an easy Linux thats stable, fast and works with NVRAID..
  14. What I think has happened here is a clash of humor... Angry made a comment in jest, and some peeps on here have taken it personally as an attack on them. Im not defending what he said or taking sides, and thats the very reason why there are rules on this type of behaviour in a work place. That said this isnt a workplace, this isnt a serious topic, and some of you have just taken something said (in jest or not) to heart thats really written text on a computer screen... Really you need to chill out... So he called us hairy palmed nerds.... so F**#$%ing what... does it change any of you? no.. Does it make you a different person today??? No..... Angry could call me a hairy palmed nerd till he's blue in the face, but the fact is, that he doesnt know me in real life... He doesnt know the fact that I have probably traveled and seen more of the world than he has, and why should he care about that anyway?? In fact he doesnt know any of us in real life (only a few). .. Some of you need to really take it like water off a ducks back and just swim on with life and learn to ignore things that obviously was posted to spark a reaction in the first place... Just my 2 cents
  15. Actually Angry, they also have palm trees in Scotland too... They will grow on the outer edges of Dumfries & Galloway (Wigtown area) in Scotland.. I do have a picture somewheres... heh...
  16. He's not asking how to do it, he understands that... he's asking what about the udates between SP1 and SP2... The short answer is that the updates between SP1 and SP2 are included in SP2.
  17. Any updates from post Sp1 are IN sp2 Thats the reason for the service packs. They have all updates (and more) from the last Serivce pack to the date the Service pack was made.. When you install a sp2 PC now there are a lot more updates to download, or you can just use the latest Autopatcher XP... (Google it)
  18. I have been married for over three years.. Will be four this coming september. My best friends back in the UK were both girls, which I might add did a lot for me as a person. They are the one to the far left, and the middle both wearing black. I miss them both terribly as its been nearly four years since I have seen them both. I pretty much have more female friends than male friends now as I get on with them better and they dont talk about beer and football 90% of the time.. Sure I still have male friends too, but they outnumber the females to about 3-2 in general. Of course this doesnt mean I bed them all etc they are just friends and I'll be honest to say that every guy needs to have a good female friend or two thats not a 1 on 1 relationship. You can get to do stuff with them that you would never do with a guy, and it helps for when you meet "the one". Me and the wife have a strict policy of you can do all the window shopping you want but you never EVER enter the doors of the store... and I think that works pretty well, it doesnt mean you cant have any fun tho, my name handle is just that, a bit of fun. But I know where you come from with the panting etc, but this happens everywhere, not just on forums... Ask any girl who has been to a Lanparty and is an actual participitant... its kinda sad when a girl who just wants to deathmatch, gets oogled and undressed by the eyes of 100 nerds constantly, which is probably the reason why so many girl geeks dont come out of the woodwork as often as they should.. and thats sad really, as the world would be a better place with them IMO.. Just my 2 cents... (I fixed my picture btw... sorry about that)
  19. Yeah Manga is the Comics and Anime is the animation... my bad... I get all confused as all the anime came out in the UK under the Manga Video Label (http://www.manga.com/) so I always get the stufff mixed up. My bad..
  20. I play with fire all the time... its fun.. (jk) Really she (TGM) just owns my online soul, and it hers to do with what she will... I am her slave after all.. (She's tough tho, dont think that its a walk in the park, far from it... I have the scars to prove it - ) My wife owns my real life and my money, and my car, etc etc.. heheheheheh Its good to come out of your shell once in a while and have an online alterego
  21. You also forgot to mention that if you want to go anywhere away for more than a day you need a dog-sitter, pay for kennels, etc... and the fact you got to pick thier "puppy pies" up from the yard. etc etc... at least Cats have the common sense to bury thier "Kitty Pies" We have a dog and a cat.... and tbh the dog is worse than any kid I know. I have a 2 yr old son who's easier to keep than the dog.. lol
  22. While I agree with most of what you said, Pixar and Dreamworks work on different levels.. Pixar is technically very good, without it making it look like its CGI... The Fur on Sully in Monsters Inc for instance (esp when he's in the snow). The detail is that good that you completely forget you are watching CGI.. Its the same with Shrek... The grass being bent where they walk etc etc.. Madagascar is damn fine writing and even though the characters look cartoony, they are technically very good and you forget that any of them are even computer generated. Hoodwinked on the other hand isnt.. it looks and feels like a students CGI movie (like you said), and that is where it fails. I remember watching Toy Story for the first time and within 5 mins I completely forgot it was a CGI movie, and its the same for all the above except Hoodwinked... Its good for the kids yes, but as a family orientated thing that works on all levels, lets just leave Pixar and Dreamworks to do that as they obviously do a better job.. It will be the same with Car's,trust me you'll forget that they are even generated and rendered within 5 mins.. And Im sure that Pixar's future films are all going to be just fine now that Disney have bought them (bear in mind that Steve Jobs now has more power in Disney than any other person.. it was really Pixar aquiring Disney - Mark my words) Like I said I was suprised that Hoodwinked even got green lit for a huge countrywide release in theaters... Esp considering its competing with the Chronicles of Narnia etc (Which is still running I might add 2 months after release).. a release striaght to DVD would have been a better and more acceptable option IMO... Of course those are my opinions... as for Manga... well I admit, its been a long time... Im 34 now, and I was into manga a lot around the Akira period and beyond. But I also was into graphic Novels big time them. I read Outlanders (Cool story, but it was a totally crap film with no feelings) Akira (Like I said before the novels are MUCH better), Fist of the North Star.. and so on. After watching a slew of Manga that came out on Video under the Manga label in the UK, it all ended up being poorly animated, or just having that wierd perverted Japanese schoolboy humour that makes it look like that the film was written by a 15 yr old who has only just read what . actually is and felt stirrings in his groin... You must know what I mean with that... I'll be the first to say that the last peice of modern Manga I watched was probably the Final Fantasy Movie - Spirits Within... which IMO was the best looking Manga I have ever seen, but god did the story ever suck.... Im just hard to please now I guess..
  23. Actually you can get beta's right from Nvidia, on thier public FTP Site. They never post them on the website (and why would they tbh) Use any FTP proggie and point it to download.nvidia.com with anon access You will see that they have the 82.12's right there for download... Sure its not as high as some betas you can get, but these are right from Nvidia...
