    What do you need to do to improve yourself?

    I need to set some goals, and get passionate about them.

    Need help for a prank

    I hope you will record this and show it to us :) I presume the voice of God would be like full surround sound, super loud, mega bass and just plain EPIC - If you can pull that off, kudos. I predict fail though.

    Any gym gunkies? What do you take?

    Whey Protein, Creatine, Fish Oil Tablets and a Balanced Diet suit me, lately though I've been encouraged to start eating around 3000 calories per day in order to gain weight - I just can't do it atm though, cost, and the fact that you just have to stuff yourself with food: potatoes, rice, pasta, chicken just to reach that amount.

    Starcraft 2 Warning - Beta opt in.

    Possibly, but I also think that Blizzard will be interested in how the game runs on the lower-spec'd machines. I applied on my mac, which will be interesting if I get chosen. Beta to come out this "summer" http://www.shacknews.com/onearticle.x/58536

    Is Counterstrike dead?

    CS 1.6 will, for a while yet be the benchmark in competitive team based fps. CSS is good, but it changed alot from the original so all the pros stuck with 1.6.

    Becoming a DJ

    Do you want to produce or mix music? If you wish to just DJ, The minimum you will need are two turntables or CDJ's (CDJ's are the way to go nowadays) and a mixer. I'm sure you can find plenty of guides online, also check out 'ellaskins' on youtube.

    GTA4 for PC

    I was looking forward to this game, seems like alot of drama just to play though. Maybe I'll wait a bit before I purchase it.

    Left 4 Dead

    Apparantly, you can still play the demo. I haven't tried this but someone told me you can launch the .exe from C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\left 4 dead demo\ Multiplayer doesn't work, but you can play single player on the demo. Maybe try this out.

    Left 4 Dead

    I agree, however you can open a server browser by enabling console and typing 'openserverbrowser' The consoleport-ness of it is somewhat annoying, but you can get around some stuff with the ingame console.

    Left 4 Dead Demo Preload!

    If you turn on sv_cheats in console, you can noclip through the door where the demo ends. It seems the end of the demo is more like a halfway checkpoint. Through the door you can check out the rest of the level.

    Left 4 Dead Demo Preload!

    That is one good tactic to use. That's assuming there is a door to use =( Generally I try to do the same thing, especially in certain parts of the level it is smart to close off doors, one part is when you come to the end of the train tracks in part 2 of the demo, just before going up towards the room with all the pillars. However, the director is quite smart and often doors will be removed, which is always fun :p

    I use the SteelPad QcK+ If you have a large desktop space, I can't reccomend it highly enough.

    Left 4 Dead Demo Preload!

    So far this game has been great. If you go into your C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead demo\left4dead - scramble around and you can find some audio clips, and some level overviews for the full game.

    World Cyber Games

    So the WCG is on at the moment, and I find it interesting to watch. I usually like to keep track of CS and StarCraft. If you guys are interested team australia in cs (immunity) is currently playing a best of 3 agains the finnish team (gameplay). http://www.gamestah.com/ has a shoutcast, you can watch the match by 'connect hltv.gotfrag.com:3103' in the Counter-Strike console. So many of these guys are just freakishly skilled at gaming, its good to watch.
