Re: Windows 7: A better Vista?

Vista/W7's Superfetch feature is bloody awesome. It'd be worth having at least 4GB for that. Other examples of App that may need 4GB+ RAM would be Gaming/Graphics and these aren't average users. Well maybe gaming is but I really meant the odd word document/e-mail/Internet users. Obviously if you're ...

Re: Windows 7: A better Vista?

SP1 public beta at the end of July.

Nah, still no reason for me to upgrade from Vista x64 SP2. I'm utterly content with what I already have, it does everything that I need it to do.

BTW Brad, are you running W7 32-bit or x64?

"The Daleks invade Sheffield" featurette

The Doctor and Amy looked like reanimated corpses, talk about visiting the Uncanny Valley. The animation looked like it was ripped from a low rent commercial game circa 2000.

I've been play the PC Multiplayer beta of Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Fuck me, this game is awesome, I'm so buying this. So much better than that piece of high latency shit Modern Warfare 2.

Re: Mozilla Firefox 3.5: RELEASED!

Can't say that I've noticed much difference in FF3.6.

Can't say that I care much for persona skins either. Most are garish eyesores, that are too busy. You have to wade through hundreds of shit ones to find anything halfway decent, it's like looking for a media player skin.

There's still hope, the recent PS3 exclusive RPG from Sega called Valkyria Chronicles was dual language. Thanks to the space provided by the BD format, I guess.

Re: Are the Wii/Gamecube A/V leads interchangeable?

Component leads, no. The Gamecube component cable had a proprietary chipset inside, these pretty much killed the chance of 3rd party cables because the chipset was hard to clone. Wii component leads use the standard output AV connector that Nintendo consoles have used since the SNES though. Wii SCAR...

Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem - 2/5 - Utterly rubbish film, but fairly entertaining nonetheless for when you want to switch off the brain and relax with some beers. It never takes itself seriously nor pretends to be anything more than the B-grade schlock that it is. Better than Alien Resurrection by...

Peerguardian2 is dead, long live PeerBlock

As you know Peerguardian2 hasn't been updated in like 2 years and doesn't even have native Vista/W7 64-bit support. Well the recently released PeerBlock is built from the PG2 source code, has a signed Vista/W7 64-bit driver and seems to be updated regularly.

Re: Since MPC is dead...

x64 versions of MPC or any codec packs are a massive waste of time and cause more head aches than anything else. Stick to the 32-bit (x86) versions.
