  1. i did once "steal" duke3d from wal-mart. i had bought duke3d and got home only to find out there was no game disk! so i went back with the box and recite to trade in. however they wouldn't do it. so i came back 2 days later with my box and swapped it.

    I later understood how the disk could have been lost. it was in a single paper sleeve that can easily slide out of the box.

  2. clean the CD/DVD drive. also, do you smoke around the computer? doing that can really fuck drives up. i am always having to replace the drives in a friend's computer because they smoke so much around it.

    make sure the disk is clean and then run a drive cleanign disk in there. if not do as the others said. also could be a dead/dying drive or cable.

  3. I am not just looking for something for home protection. thats just an extra feature right now. I want something that is good for some hunting and shooting.
    birds and small animals for the most part. however one day i do want to go moose hunting.

    as for personal protection i can understand why my mother wants me to have a gun. My dad is into alot of shit. I know about alot of it but I don't know who is involved outside of my family and his circle of friends. If my dad does something stupid, or anyone else for that matter, it could be deadly. living with my dad is like living on a razors edge. I live here because i dont make the money i need to survive on my own. and i am going to school. i am not gonna take out loans unless i need to do so. this up coming spring i my join the navy or airforce anyways.

    Anxiety... overload...

    Time to get a DVD player.

    WHAT you don't own a DVD player!? man why not? those things are so much better than VHS. Also they have gotten much cheaper. infact at my store a VHS player costs more.

    one note about DVD players and old TV's get an RF modulator. Don't run them through a VCR. there can be an issue in doing so, picture cuts out and fades stuff like that. also some RF modules are really really shitty. it may be time to buy a new TV. in which case you really should get an HD compatible TV. those are also dropping in price. you can get a basic one for $400-$600 depending on size. also EDTV or ETV is NOT HD compatible. its just a farse to trick people.

  5. i have never stolen anything from my current work. no reason to and not worth getting fired over. honestly i just wouldn't take the hard drive.

    i would ask. if not you can find plenty of 4GB drives for dirt cheap, under $10.
    some places may not give a shit. infact when i worked krogers they wanted us the "take" expired items. mostly magazines and food. however my current work place will fire you for ANY theft. even a candy bar or beef jerky.

    hell if you are gonna steal why not go for the gold. i hear the 40GB hard drive calling you.

  6. i remember showing some friends event horrizon. they had never seen it and where fairly blood shy. he also decided to eat some pizza. then it got to the part with the video. instant puke.

    i wonder if there is a director's cut? now includes 30 minutes of extra carnage!

  7. well i am thinking about investing in my second amendment rights. Now i am not looking for a full auto firearm.
    ironicly my mother hates guns but for some odd reason insist that i own some form of personal protection, mainly in the form of a hand gun.

    My uncle also wants to get me a gun for christmas. he has only been bugging me about it for the last 5 years. mainly because he wants to take me hunting.

    my neighbor is selling some items from his personal arsonal. a few i have fired. among the items are a .45 pistol, 9mm pistol, duke3d like shotgun ( i have fired this one) a 9mm rifle, a standard looking shotgun and a few other things.

    now i am not a gun expert. i know the basics. so what would be a good gun to buy? how about prices? what is also good for personal protection and hunting?

    note i am not looking to get a concealed carry licence. I dont have any children, younger brothers/sister ( that i need to worry about), or trigger happy pet monkeys. though i have had my fair share of having to deal with knife wileding drugged up women my father would bring home. a time when a shotgun is welcome over doging a knife and other random objects.

  8. yea saw that on the local news today. was trying to get a glimps of the high speed chase in my home town, that lasted a grande total of 3 minutes.

    some thiefs where fleeing. one of them was a kid i beat in the side yard of my home. he tried to go round two on my car. instead he got a 15 minute beating from me.
    anyways they hit my brother's friends car and that car hit his other car and that car then went through the garage. the kids where 16-18 years old and had been breaking into cars. one of them broke into my car, i think.

    like i said one of them was a kid i beat up for trying to break into my car.

    to bad spiderman wasn't with me to help.

  9. i loved the old stuff. ride the lightning is a favorite CD.

    However me an music have kinda had a falling out. not much has impressed me nor have i bought any CD's in over a year. even after all of my CD's got stolen. i didnt even bother buying new ones. not to say i didnt burn any new ones.

    i dont even download music that much. i might have no more than 20 songs on my main computer. half of those are old metallica songs.

    i hate club music. christ i even tried listening to it. my brother has some CD's. literaly like listening to the party boy theme. for fuck sake i think i found something more annoying than boybands and pop culture BS

  10. i dont take alot of news seriously. i'll do the research if i want answers. newsletters and such are the same way.
    i know a guy who wirtes a newsletter. however it is kinda hard to take him seriuosly. after all he has no job, and bush sure isn't stopping him from getting a job. even if he worked for McDonalds for 6 weeks. if i lost my job i would be back looking for a new one. i would get one and then try to find better

    I didn't touch the multiplayer component of the original Half-Life, but thought the singleplayer game was very good. I'm definitely looking forward to HL2, though nowhere near as eagerly as the fanboys.

    agreed. i played MP some times. i had loads more fun with ET than CS. note ET as in enemy territory.

    i loved the single player part of it. granted it was a bit gbuggy in places. i have the first version of HL so i remeber.

    infact i remember buying the game cause i had just sold another game. nothing else interested me, or i already had it. so i took a stab at the mystery game. i was very very surprised

  12. we my not even see it until 2005, last i heard. havnt really paid attention to it because i have it for the computer.

    I may own an Xbox but i have no intetion of buy doom3 for xbox. unless i snag one years later for like $5. like i did with doom32X

  13. its not out yet!

    The xbox version will not have an ingame editor.

    Doom3 will be much the same, graphics will be trimmed down for the Xbox. Same story and same maps, they might cut some stuff out. Also they will have Co-op, as far as i know.

    the game will be linkable, like most Xbox games, and will have Xbox live support. I mean why wouldn't they do those things?

    Im going to go out on a limb and say that it's your processor. The minimum requirement in that area is a 1.5ghz Pentium IV (or Athlon XP 1500). I dont think a celeron is comparable, even at 1.7ghz.

    Your video card could use some upgrading too, if you can afford it. More ram is always a good thing but you're fine in that respect.

    i would say the same. really a celeron is shit compared to a P4 or AMD athlon.

    however for a must have upgrade i would do the video card. celerons are junk.

    wtf controllers with colling fans? The geeks have taken over the asylum.

    Can't beat your basic gravis gamepad pro. Mine's knackered after years of sterling service, I bought a cheap 10-button replacement from Game, does the job, nothing fancy, all I need.

    yea there are also ones for xbox and PS2. also they have a mouse that is the same way. neat but not worth the extra money. Its not like my hands sweat alot anyways.

  16. the biggest problem next to legality of the issue is spyware.

    many of these sites seem to be fronts for spyware. so be careful, very careful. though i don't go around looking for MP3's others have told me they have been asked to download "software" to get these MP3's, which was spyware. Also some friends have downloade dit to find it was either the wrong band, some cover band or complete garbage.

  17. the win98 system IS the bitch of the bunch.
    its a
    dual Pentium pro, 400Mhz
    6GB hard drive
    96MB RAM
    also i stuck that 3dfx voodoo2 card in it.
    what else am i gonna use it for?

    i have been kinda messing with premissions. but still doesnt do anything.

  18. they call him "magic johnson" for a reason i guess. yea i cant belive that guy is still alive. i wonder how he is doing these days? he has to have some wonder drug to live more than 10 years with HIV. however i havnt heard about him in recent years so i really dont know how he is, maybe he is on his deathbed at this moment. maybe he is died and i just didn't know.

  19. ATI cards are nice. i have the 9600XT however if you plan to use linux, or unix. always get Nvidia, for now, as linux drivers sucks.

    9800pro cards are down to a decent price, but for me i wish i had bought a 5900 or something.
