  1. on the good or badness of vista issue: im on the side of "its evil."

    maybe it was the 15 crashes during my CAD final project or my new favorite error where it doesnt allow you to open any new applications of shut down.

    i mean it would be acceptable to me if it didnt frustrate me at least once a day.

    Were you using AutoCAD (or Inventor)? That's probably why you were having such problems then. SolidWorks runs pretty smoothly on my shitty vista toshiba laptop.

  2. Physics defying bullets are retarded.

    Centripedal force would NOT affect a bullet by curving it. Retarded. Also the biology defying healing baths were dumb.

    Action and plot were okay, but the beginning was awfully long. Decent movie, I guess. Nothing special.

    ......It's "Centripetal"

    I thought it was a pretty good movie, it certainly served its purpose as an over the top action flick (which I think allows for some crazy physics defying stuff).

  3. No, Diablo 2 is now like StarCraft. Now that I know there is a sequel on the way I can't even stand the look at the original.

    I've been playing Starcraft alot lately actually, just to get familiar with it again. But I seem to always get bored of ladder games and go play UMS games for countless hours (Sunken D, ftw)

  4. So apparently he was found dead in a Manhattan apartment this morning.

    This guy was awesome, I wonder what happened.... :(

    If anyone doesn't know who this is, he's the new Joker in

    "The Dark Knight" and was in movies like "The Patriot" and "A Knights Tale"


  5. Like many here, I started using a similar handle when I was fairly young. My sisters said it needed

    to be a clever one (this was for my hotmail account) so of course being nine years old,

    I somehow thought "Operawonderboy" was in fact very clever. I've actually come to realize that opera is one of

    my favorite music genres...but I'm still not sure why I thought making it a sort of lame

    superhero name would be "clever". My sisters, being older alot than me, didn't enlighten me on the level

    of lameness the name had...so of course I kept it. Anyways, in the ninth grade I needed to give myself an

    upgrade from "boy" to "dude". And there ya go.

  6. Personally, I dislike the whole multiple GPU solution. If you use two cards, you should get twice the performance.

    Having two of something doesn't mean 2X the performance...just to let you know...T_T

    Anyways, I get pretty good kicks outta just having an entry level dual core laptop (with the intel 900 series by the way).

    Yeah Crysis is out the question for me...but I'd rather play CS:Source and Doom3 anyways...

    EDIT: Dang that id software bundle looks pretty nice, I've only got Doom3 and the expansion,

    so perhaps I'll look into it...

  7. Am I the only person who never thought "Borat" was funny?

    Naw, my dad didn't think he was funny either (he stopped watching the movie like 15 minutes in).

    Can't wait to see Cohen in Sweeney Todd, I'd see it right now but it's still only in select theaters and the nearest that has it to me is like an hour and a half away :(

  8. Microsoft office 2007 (yeah...)

    Skiing tickets

    Bunch of University of Washington clothes

    Bunch of Detroit sport team clothes

    Pink Floyd: Pulse DVD

    Ocean's 11-12-13 Box set


    Geometry Wars: Galaxies DS

    LoZ Phantom Hourglass DS

    200$ in various gift cards

    and of course...

    Cash money! OH SHNAPS!

    Happy Boxing Day!

  9. Anyone use this for gaming voice chat?

    I'm having problems with the 'push to talk' while in game full screen. I'm also using Vista, which I'm guessing is the source of the problem :/

    I'd post this on the Ventrilo website forum but no one ever replies on it...

    Any help would be awesome!

  10. Is anyone pretty familiar with the program? I'm having some troubles with the saving a simulation of an rotary ssembly as an .avi after the simulation. The option of saving the simulation as .avi is greyed out and isn't selectable.

    I'm only using the student version so I can't get online help on their website nor can I find the technical support phone number.

    Any help would be awesome!
