  1. dude, come back :(

  2. British spelling = proper spelling? I beg to differ. Uppercase letters rule. I only own one original Game Boy. -.- contempt
  3. I wouldn't say they're useless. While they're penetrable, they provide quite good protection. Up to this minute, Zone Alarm has blocked 8431 intrusions (16 of those high-rated) since its installation. contempt
  4. edit button ftw. Riggs has the right idea. I use ZoneAlarm and if a program is not on the list or not marked as 'trusted,' it won't work properly. I've used the windows firewall as well, but don't remember it having an exceptions list or any list, for that matter. Surely, you can also bite the bullet and reinstall Steam & CS:S. contempt
  5. More like Halo 5 or 6. After all, Halo 2 came out on the Xbox in November '04 and on PCs w/ Vista, only Vista (!), at the end of May '07 - go figure. contempt
  6. The only 'empty' server you got is the CS:S server. With bots, people were more likely to join, but now that they're gone, I can't even play there anymore. You should advertise it more and up my maps. contempt PS:
  7. I was very big on TFC back in 03. Loved the game and almost all classes, especially the spy, but didn't care for the engineer and hwguy. I'm also particularly impressed with the new, comic-like look of TF2 that was showcased in the three trailers. Tho I'm not gonna download it off of Steam (or Stench, as I prefer to call it), I sure as hell am gonna buy the Orange Box! contempt
  8. I was watching part of AC360 on CNN and, unprepared as I was, quickly took 3 pictures of live shots of Ground Zero. View from WFC (probably 3): View south toward NJ: View from the Hudson toward 2, 3 and 4 WFC (right to left): contempt
  9. The anniversary of these tragic, ignominious events continues to evoke some of the saddest memories in countless people around the world and those having to live without their loved ones alike. I'll always extend my condolences to the families and friends of those who perished in these three mindless and utterly abominable acts of terrorism, even though I can't do so in person. Sorry to hear that, JonQ. My thoughts are with you! Always remember 9/11! contempt PS: This thread coulda been titled "Anniversary of 9/11" in order to avoid a "7th...," "8th...," etc. thread in years to come. But, of course, that's unimportant. Thanks for the thread, broncoty.
  10. That's a very cool idea, Jack. I'ma do the survey soon . contempt
  11. I find the mass suicide and this:"[...] way back when i was [...]" amusing . The song is "Mad World" by Gary Jules. link contempt
  12. Looks nice and is innovative but the requirements are way too high for me. recommended requirements: Intel core 2 duo processor DX9: Direct X 9.0c compliant video card with 512MB RAM (NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GT or better), DX10: NVIDIA GeForce 8600 or better 2 GB RAM 8 GB free disc space Sound Blaster® X-Fi™ series (Optimized for use with Creative Labs EAX ADVANCED HD 4.0 or EAX ADVANCED HD 5.0 compatible sound cards) Internet connection for activation I'm not gonna buy new hardware or a new computer to be able to enjoy it anytime soon. contempt
  13. Wow this is a nice thread. To tell you the truth, I have no clue how to rank my top 5 games, seeing as I got gobs of top-notch games lying around. It goes something like this: #1 UT2004 #2 Quake ]|[ Team Arena #3 Max Payne 1/2 #4 CS:S & H-L2 #5 Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy I'll extend this to top 10: #6 Age of Empires 2: The Conquerors #7 GTA: SA #8 CnC Tib Sun Firestorm/Red Alert 2 Yuri's Revenge #9 Prey #10 RTCW/Enemy Territory Well, this is too darn tough. I guess, these top 10 games are all interchangeable. Other really great games I own include: GTA: 3, GTA: VC, Mech Commander 2, The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay D's Cut, Unreal Tournament GotY, AvP 2 + expansion, BloodRayne, Far Cry, Halo, SoF 1/2, AoE 1 + expansion, Half-Life, Half-Life Opposing Force, TFC (would be #1 if I was playing it right now). contempt
