I've looked at Quarter to Three a time or two. Maybe I'll look again.

I think this board never reached critical mass in terms of users. You can't write all the content, you need a regular infusio ...

I feel bad about that. I had a discussion today that reminded me that this board existed, but I just haven't had anything to say here.

I still run my mouth on TMF, though.

I bought it. It's really very linear, but honestly, I'm OK with that. Sure, I'm all in favor of choices, but if the level design is interesting enough, this isn't vital in a shooter.

I like Garmin's products. I owned a Streetpilot III, my wife has a 2520, and I currently have a c330 in my car.

I recently purchased a Mobile 10 for use with my Palm TX. Sometimes I'm on foot, eith ...

PostForum: Game Development   Posted: Thu May 10, 2007 7:25 am   Subject: Lethality
"Lethality" is a shorthand term I use for the ratio between damage done and the health of most targets. High lethality means it takes relatively few hits to kill a target. At the far end of ...

"Out of warranty" has never bothered me much. Typically, I'll drive a car until it hits 100K miles, which by rule of thumb is where you start getting concerned about major wear. I've owned ...

I think you just like buying new cars. How many have you purchased in the last 10 years? The truck, the M3, and now the Prius? I have no idea how long you had the Viper.

I do love nav systems. I've been a Garmin customer for years. It's particularly useful if you live in a city with insane streets. Friday I had to go downtown for jury duty, and I took the T rather ...

You lost over half your power / weight ratio, and it's ZOMG awesome?

Yeah, I sort-of did, though not as much as most I've spoken to about those books. I don't remember it terribly well now, beyond thinking the Shrike was pretty weird, contrived, and behaved illogicall ...

OK, I just ran into a wall halfway through the book, and I'm stopping. Prospero starts talking about how the planet "records sentient energies" and that Setebos (spelled correctly this time ...

I'm reading Olympos right now, and I'm really have a rough time with it. It's not bad, it's just that for the most part, I don't care. So it's become one of those books that I have to force myself t ...

Looks like 3Ware makes a decent RAID controller, available at Newegg for $125. But it's a 64-bit PCI card. It supposedly works in the older 32 bit PCI slots, but the point is moot because there's no ...

One problem I'm finding is the manufacturers won't tell you whether a given RAID controller is truly hardware or not. I was looking over the selection at Newegg and the specs didn't say. The only wa ...

Summary and basic question: I have a RAID controlled by a nForce 3-250 motherboard. I think it's buggy. Do I continue to live with it, install a different RAID controller card, or drop-kick RAID entir ...
