  1. I agree, I would be surprised if game companies wouldn't want to advertise on OCR.
  2. I used this for a while, but then the trial period ran out. If you have Winamp Pro though, you can download and install this transcoder plugin - http://www.srcf.ucam.org/~wdhf2/transcoder/ Is there any free transcoding software that anyone knows about?
  3. Freeform only... ha. That's kinda an oxymoron. I command you not to follow conventions!
  4. Sweet sigs. That sounds like a good idea with the two seperate votes, but maybe if we don't have enough for two categories, we could simply weight the votes? So the people who have entered the competition would have their votes counted twice compared to those who didn't enter, or who haven't entered in the past, or something like that.
  5. I'm trying to imagine the nice work guy playing DDR, its not working though
  6. I totally agree, I just know that that was one of the original arguments for restricting voting to the actual writers.
  7. I guess I can live with sharing first I also agree that it would be better if more people were allowed to vote, maybe restrict it to people who have submitted an entry in the past, or to people that we're pretty sure aren't alt accounts? I don't know how you'd determine that, maybe just they have to be registered users for a while, and active on the boards, though of course that doesn't guarantee anything.
  8. I like the idea of publishing the vote spread after the voting stage is over, but its really not that big of a deal to me. Oh, and I got my vote in already. There weren't a lot of subs, so hopefully everyone will get a vote in quickly and we can find out the results.
  9. I'm actually trying out Fedora Core 6 for a while to see if I like it. Plus, Fedora 7 is out May 31st, so that might be an interesting alternative. In the end my guess is that I'll dual-boot my laptop, with Vista and Fedora, but I'll end up using Fedora almost exclusively except when I need to use a program that only Vista can run.
  10. Well, I think we've kind of reached a consensus here - thanks for the help guys.
  11. The thread title basically says it all. I'm going off to college next year and getting a new laptop, which will probably come with Vista. To run the new GUI and stuff I'll probably have to upgrade the RAM to around 2 gigs or so, but I've been looking at some of Vista's new "features" and honestly the only big difference I can see is the Aero interface. Is XP more stable than Vista, or are most of the bugs fixed already? Is Aero cool enough to shell out the extra money to get a good machine that can run it? I'm fine with XP on my home computer as it is, and I don't do a lot of PC gaming or anything, so thats not a factor. Thanks for the help.
  12. Well, I don't know much about what a traditional haiku is or whatever, I just did the 5-7-5 thing. Anyways, I uploaded it to writing.com, here's the link: http://www.writing.com/main/view_item/item_id/1258064 And this is the link to my writing.com profile: http://www.writing.com/main/view_item/user_id/old_man_time Good luck to everyone in the competition! I look forward to reading all of your poetry.
  13. Well, here's my submission. Its a haiku that I just wrote now, which I based off of a camping trip I had in northern Wisconsin. I hope you all like it. Note: I edited this post to do some capitalization in the poem. Good change/bad change? Hiking at Midnight Silent, gentle leaves Little rivulets of grass Grasp the starlit night
  14. I'm in for the poetry contest, not as much as a time whore as the short story comp.
  15. isnt there a discussion of this in the actual group?
