Anything with MX in the model number by Nvidia sucks. I got the 9000 ATI new for $69 shipped and it has dx 8.1 all in hardware (unlike the gf4mx and gf2).

There are faster cards but for the features and money spent the 9000 was a good deal.

I doubt it'll be that 10 minutes in. Another thing I hate about the 1,2 as opposed to 4,5,6, is that they're in different time slots. 4,5, and 6 pretty much went right after another, the new ones go about 5 years at a time. Oh really? I thaught 1 and 2 were same time slots, and I aged 5 years watch...

Star Wars has sucked ever since some idiot invented an ewok. Do you even remember an alien in star wars I, II that was menacing? All the newer alien creatures look like they belong on sesame street. Went from scary and menacing to "what stuffed animal would a 4 year old girl take to bed with her". ...

I voted NO.

If you have a semi finished game I say finish it. Starting too many projects that dont get finished is a bad thing to do. trust me you learn more from completing 1 project then leaving 5 unfinished.

Anyway if your doing it because you need to learn VB then have fun.

The Han Solo thing was done because a hero today must be politically correct and that means not shooting first. I think the US is turning into a nation of wimps with all the politically correct crap these days. You cant say or do anything that might offend ANYBODY even if it is 100% correct as viewe...

Whoever purchased DR-DOS is working on a new advanced version I beleive. DOS is still used as a stable embedded OS from my understanding.

Dos that works with fat32 formatted drives and can have larger then 2gb partitions would be nice (So I can cram more games on my dos pc's).
