    Rate my final build

    Well I'm not paying for the 8800GT at all so I would rather not spend more money on a video card. Its only going to be for a couple of weeks. Keep in mind that I haven't played ANY pc games for years so I will have plenty of time to acquaint myself with stuff like HL2. TF2, etc that aren't a strain on the 8800GT

    Final Fantasy VIII finally coming to PSN

    FF VIII is still my number one game EVER. Like the TC I have lost track of how much I play it. When I was like 14-15 I had this folder that I had mum bind for me at work. It would have been at least a few hundred pages long that contained just about every FAQ from gameFAQS printed out. This was like my bible for a long time. It has a entire Beastiary, magic lists, etc. This announcement could very well entice me to buy a PS3. Woah... hold up a minute. Are you saying that you can get FF VII and soon VIII that are on PSN to play on your PSP? This would be EPIC for me. I never actually finished FFVII believe it or not and have wanted to play VII, VIII & IX all again. I actually put more time into that minigame on IX was it called Blitzball or something then I did on the story. Oops just had a look and found that Blitzball was on FFX on PS2. Damn that game was awesome.

    Best notebook for $800 - $1000?

    http://www.mln.com.au/product/?itemID=774 http://www.mln.com.au/product/?itemID=701 I have found MLN to be easily the best when it comes to laptop sales. These two looks nice but there are at least half a dozen models in your price range.

    Can someone explain steam to me?

    I haven't gamed on PC for years. In the next few weeks I'll have it all setup. What exactly is Steam and how does it work. Are they just like an online retailer that catalogues & streamlines all your games? I understand that you can buy and gift games to people & have read a few topics about $AUD prices being inflated. I have quite a few contacts in the states and europe whom I could get to purchase the games for me then gift them. Would this be a better option? I have also seen a few steam accounts for sale with heaps of games already. As I haven't really played any games for the last 18mths I figure buying an established account that will have plenty for me to catch up on. Anything negative about this?
  6. I've tried it on 4 different PCs. With XP, Vista, Linux and windows 7. Nothing at all works the drive is definately kaput!

    Neighbour in a spot of bother

    I just finished work so suck it up! No use of force necessary tonight. Well maybe one chick who was trying to abscond, and the "woman" that the cops brought in with a 10cm gash above the eyebrow that would have been 2-3cm wide. She was a regular though so no-one really gave a shit!

    Neighbour in a spot of bother

    Section 462A of the Crimes Act 1958 (Vic) provides as follows: “462A. A person may use such force not disproportionate to the objective as he believes on reasonable grounds to be necessary to prevent the commission, continuance or completion of an indictable offence or to effect or assist in effecting the lawful arrest of a person committing or suspected of committing any offence.” This is the bottom line. This is what has been drilled into my head as long as I have been doing security work. If someone is committing a crime you can stop them using whatever means it takes to stop them committing that crime. Although we are not meant to carry them I have a collapsible baton in my bag at all times when working. The fact we have nothing to defend ourselves is scary. Just a few weeks ago I had 6 police in the building wearing bullet proof vests, 2 undercover cops and about 10 plain clothed. We were required to watch a few entrances and what-not. All we have to defend ourselves is our smile and clever wit.
  10. Thanks for the advice bowiee. Unfortunately I have tried everything already. I have tried WD's programs. A number of data/HDD recovery programs as well as formatting and partioning using linux. Every single program that tries to access the drive freezes and never goes anywhere.
  11. Yeh I googled. Sorry bout the wrong section I could have sworn I was in the other one. Anyhow I need this drive asap so was hoping there would be a walk-in/walk-out solution other then RMA.

    Recommended in-car audio setups

    I know, I've got a 2.5" lukey exhaust & pacemaker extractors on the car. Unfortunately thats about as far as I will go with this one to avoid unwanted attention.

    Recommended in-car audio setups

    I agree with you to a point. Although my $1400 DLS front stage would tend to disagree with you :P For me having another fast car would end up being more trouble then its worth and as such I spend money on getting the car nice and cruisy. I can easily understand how some people don't get decent car audio but I for one love it. The sound quality that comes out of my system is unbelievable. Thats why I go to the driveins instead of the cinemas :P
