  1. Dark Side Of The Moon. If someone put a gun to my head and demanded I name the alltime greatest album ever made, this is the one I'd pick. If he pulled the trigger, I wouldn't care. Gotta go sometime .
  2. I voted 5+ because on average, I figure I buy 20 or more games a year, just not 5 a month per say. There might be 2 or 3 games a year that I just gotta have and will pay the full shot for, but I've gotten in the habit of "waiting out" most of them 'till the price comes down to under $30. Every now and then, I'll walk in and pick up four or five games at once that range from $10 to $30 that when first released went for $50 to $60. The problem with this strategy is that you end up with too many games at once and not enough time to play them all. I've always paid for my games though, so if and when they stop making them for the PC, I will be able to point my finger at all the guys who didn't and say "told you so!!" Small consolation though.
  3. Ahh crap! I knew I shouldn't'a looked into this thread. I swore I was done with CoD when they released the last one for effin' consoles only. Now my resolve is waivering.
  4. Heh. I'm still playing Most Wanted. I've played (and loved) just about every one of them. I got ProStreet for Christmas, and have to agree with the OP. From installing it, to creating an alias to navigation... it's a piece of crap. It's a shame too because I think it finally supports a clutch and shifter (I have the Logitech G25). The graphics are sweet, but I'm thinking this will be my last NFS. Anyway, I still haven't played Carbon, and I hear it's not much different from Most Wanted, so I'll probably pick that up (about $19) and call it quits.
  5. I love fishing, just not for bass. Not many up here for largemouth, but I know lakes for smallmouth where it's like... ahem...shooting fish in a barrel. I prefer downrigging for salmon/lake trout/rainbow (Lake Huron/Georgian Bay/North Channel). This is my boat. We also spend a lot of time fishing the hard water but nothing beats that first trip after ice out (late May at the earliest), for speckled trout (the feet are mine).
  6. Google. I couldn't get the DFI to boot but once I got here, 5 minutes of searching had me the solution. I then spent weeks just reading and learning.
  7. It began here at 4:51 A:M (EST). I start work at 5 A:M but am pretty much alone till 7, so I snuck my camera gear into work and set up on the roof of the building hoping to get a set of multiple exposures (just bought a new super telephoto lens ). Sat there for about an hour as it progressed, and just as the moon was fully eclipsed...the clouds moved in. Didn't really matter though, as I later discovered my camera was set to "normal jpeg" (as opposed to Large/Fine+RAW which I normally use) so even the ones I did get, turned out to be only mediocre. If I'd have gotten up that early on my own time I'd have been pissed. By the way, yes I did get all my work done that day .
  8. Two mirrored, two striped. RAID1 for operating system, documents, pictures etc. RAID 0 for games and benchmark suites.
  9. I love Sarah Evans videos ;-) Rickie Lee Jones, Last Chance Texaco.
  10. The wife, kids and dog went to camp, so I've been sitting here since quitting time, drinking beer and increasing the volume a little at a time (it's now hella loud...screw the neighbours). One of the most underrated bands of the 70's...Nazareth! (did you guys get them in the States, or were they another "Supertramp" that you just didn't get?) Anyhow, Hair of the Dog, pull it out (if you own it, it's probably vinyl), dust it off, smoke a doob, and tell me if I'm wrong. Please Don't Judas me, Whiskey Drinking Woman and Rose In The Heather. Frikin' great stuff.
  11. I generally join a forum whenever I take an interest in something new and need information or help (how I found this one). For example, I've recently gotten back into photography, and needed to learn a whole new set of skills to work with digital images, so that's where I've been lately. I tend to lurk mostly, but usually post in off topic or general interest sections, where there's little chance of confusing someone with a wrong answer. Rarely do I come across a forum that I'll continue checking in on, even after I've moved on to other interests (this being one ).
  12. Me neither, and I do regret throwing out all the games from the Vic20/64, but I still have a room in the basement full of games (boxes included) from about circa 1998 'till today. The ten year gap in between was when I must have had a life, but it's a bit hazy. Man my math sucks.

    Paradigms are notorious for blowing tweeters. My Monitor 9's (V1) have been through three over the years, but I don't recall having paid that much for replacements. Maybe it's because I live in Canada.
