    I hate you channel seven!

    The torture you suffered is just deserts for watching such rubbish in the first place.
  2. Maybe not one to read at work, although safe, the title/main character's name could have done with a bit more thought: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0029864/plotsummary http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0029864/
  3. And, you might well become the first person in history to literally "teabag the bathtub".

    Never home alone

    No probs mate. Just remember to turn that webcam off when you knock one out, OK.

    Bali gives bombers very soft punishment

    It hasn't happened yet, so I'm not going to say much. But, when/if they're gone, I won't feel one single ounce of sympathy for them.

    Farcry 2 Out Now

    Maybe they've decided to balance the ledger by developing it on nVidia and obviously giving better initial (ie crash-free) support. Far Cry sucked on nVidia due to the water effects not working properly. Sucks on ATI due to constant crashes. Although, I've had 2 or 3 crashes using the Editor, but only when exiting it.

    Farcry 2 Out Now

    An improvement for sure, although it looks like it also changes the viewpoint origin to be closer to you. Map use better on land and car, barely improved in the boat. Really, it would have been better if they'd just made the map translucent. I think they've taken the opposite path to Far Cry... it was outlandish with some of the concepts and creatures, where this just tries to go back to Newton's laws.

    Farcry 2 Out Now

    Legendary win with the FOV hack. DLing very shortly. So far as "early adopters" go with this game... I've not had a single crash issue. The only thing bugging me is the stupid message telling me that my 2 month (or whatever they are) Video Drivers are too old. Agreed about the weirdness of some key assignments, but I don't think I've played a single FPS where I've not had to reassign at least 2 keys to my liking. "5" is a curiosity, but I guess it maps reasonably well if you use "WASD". I use cursor keys, so it's useless to me. Having to hit Esc to get your current mission is a bigger annoyance. As for the map, I'll reserve full judgement until I try this FOV hack. Driving with the map open is necessary until you know the game backwards. In a car, it's a minor pain. In a boat, I was hitting the fucking bank all the time as the map obscures practically all of the bottom of the screen.

    More environmentally friendly?

    Looks pretty flash. As for the environmental effects, NFI. It would well be that they used nasty chemicals to get the fibres to flex. More likely they just used hot water or something simple. At least they probably wouldn't age and get ugly like most plastics used these days.

    I don't know if it's a bug, or if I'm inadvertantly hitting a wrong key. But twice, I've just totally lost my machine gun from the inventory. Got into a shitfight at a town, started with it. Got back into the ute to use the mounted gun, wipe out bad guys. Go for a walk, check the weapons they've left. Check own weapons, machine gun gone.
  11. Happy Birthday, dude. If you have any spare lesbians, throw one my way.

    Zippo issues.

    2 easy diag techniques: Does it light if you hold a normal lighter near it? Can the flint light the gas from a normal lighter?

    Farcry 2 Out Now

    Just tried - you set Fullscreen="0" in the GamerProfile.xml file in My Documents\My Games\Far Cry 2. The window takes the entire screen except the top bar - I guess you'd probably have to bump the resolution down to force it into a smaller window. NFI about the performance hit, but I'd imagine it would cop one. The crosshair is kinda useful - on Normal level at least, it glows red when you've aquired a target.

    Our Dollar

    I guess the US dollar has gone up due to the drying up of available funds for credit. /methinks it's a good time to dump the $US and start using the Euro as the standard for trading.

    Map of africa

    Aus Geographic shops? National Geographic site? Or just download and print one.

    Farcry2 Securom!

    If you were to post your OS and machine description, and list what major apps you have then something might come to light. Also, have you browsed the Ubi support forums?

    How nerdy are you?

    I don't consider myself a nerd, just smarter than most people.

    farcry 2 tree problem

    So it works? I think Geometry Instancing on ATI cards can also cause glitches occasionally if enabled.

    Farcry2 Securom!

    No problems here... activated fine, and I have Alc 120 (albeit an older version) emulating a DVD drive as Z: I also tested playing it without an internet connection at all and it ran fine as well. I'm very tempted though to find a no-DVD crack or DVD mini-image as I don't like having to have to put game CDs into the drive all the time.

    Farcry 2 Out Now

    I have now probably spent more time playing the Editor than the game. You can set up some brilliant chain-reaction fires and explosions.

    The world's hardest game? You deciede.

    PoP wasn't all that hard. The hard part was not having the manual for the one I used to play on the Mac at work, and having to drink lettered potions to get to the next level. Each wrong one knocked 1 point off your health.

    Farcry 2 Out Now

    I've not had any crash issues (9800GT). The thing that shits me though is that I get the dialog every time I start it telling me my Video Drivers are too old. Bullshit. 177.79, not exactly ancient. I've also found that my card runs a good deal cooler on FC2 than with Crysis/Warhead, despite running higher end settings.
  24. The cops won't do jack shit. 25 years ago, they might have given 2 tosses about someone wanting to get a junkie out of their house. These days, if they did those types of callouts, that would be their sole line of business. Go the 2 weeks written. Beforehand, tell her to get valuables stored elsewhere. Once the 2 weeks are up, get the cops, because I doubt they'll do anything beforehand.

    Four day weekend coming up.

    Bugger me, I didn't realise it was so close! I've got next week off, so no more work for 11 days here.
