Gaming / I wanna be the guy the movie: the game
« on: October 08, 2008, 09:46:24 am »
It's a mick take of old school platformer games and is incredibly hard. The plot:

In the year 200x on his 15th birthday... a child left home on his dangerous and epic quest to become The Guy! Many years ago, "The Guy" left world and retreat to "Dungeon of Doom". Now "Young Boy" goes to defeat "The Guy" and become "The Guy" with his gun pass handed down by former "Grandfather the Guy". Go find the "8 units". Now become "The Guy".

well considering it is in beta obviously it has a lot of flaws and doesnt have a lot of features that other browsers have.
Yeah it gives me a slight better speed on some of the sites
BUT Remember one thing though Google is recording your keystrokes. So if you are more concerned about privacy then better not use this browser.

Google is NOT recording your keystrokes. It's open source and picked apart with a fine tooth comb by some, you can now download a version called Iron which doesn't transmit any anonymous data to Google (stuff which helps Phishing protection and what have you)

It used to  have a crazy EULA about all works you make, them owning the copyright to them, but they removed that.

Tried it out, I'm mostly keeping with Firefox, I think its simplistic design is really targeted at average IE user.

Many GPUs comfortably run at 70 deg, the core itself generally cope with up to 110 deg, it's the die package, the surrounding memory and the soldering that struggles.

Good to keep your GPU at a low temperature, apparently nvidia GPUs are far more prone to heat problems than AMD ones:

Is this the 9x.xx set of drivers? If so they have PhysX support  :D

Thanx Quantum  ;D

yer prob right, but all that work is a pain in the bum  [rolleyes]

the little squares are not on this morning, but if they appear tonight ( I leave this PC on all day)  it will be a heat thing.

No problem, that would seem to indicate a heat problem more than anything else. I would honestly suggest a clean out of a PC once a year and replacement of fans once every 2 years anyway.

Sounds either like your operating system is corrupted or more likely your graphics card is over heating and dying. I'd suggest taking apart your case and cleaning dust out and making sure all fans are working, if that doesn't work try a full re-install of your operating system and drivers.

Easily, you can put a good PC together and stay way ahead of store prices. There isn't a very clear ratio, but as an example a computer say from PC world advertised for £600 you can probably looking at putting slightly better together for £450.

The best trick when buying a PC is to look at what you want to do with it, consider how much budget you want to spend and then look at what you can buy with that budget.

Erm, don't know exactly what you want me to answer. But I know partitioning will have nothing to do with it.

There are memory leaks in every piece complex of software, but I can't say I've suffered any particular with Vista. It's just very memory inefficient.

Yes, North Sea gas is running out, we used it up, that's what happens with fossil fuel sources. If we'd try to sell the gas at the best prices over time to other countries and put up with normal prices like the rest of the world we'd be used to normal prices and we'd of been able to spend all that money on infrastructure. Whether it be transport to better connect people and promote business, or health to better ensure well being and promote a healthy society. Unfortunately very few governments think like that, left or right, they just look it as a way to ease the mind of the voter from their next bill.

But Billy, where did you drop your rosy tinted glasses  :o;)

P.S Tex, I'm not actually arguing for arguments sake, strange as it is, this is my opinion. Awfully capitalistic as it sounds, I do think markets work some times and we should certainly be taxing profits they register here.

Tex, you're objecting to a statical fact with subjective reasoning. Putting quotes in various colours won't change the fact that it's cheaper to run a car now than it was 30 years ago, inflation taken in to account and if you combine all the costs of running a car we're not at the top of the list for how expensive it is to run a car in Europe.

Of course in the last 18 months prices have gone up, like they have in all countries with similar economies to us. But this country is today more affluent than it has been at any point through history, most families aren't working class, the country tipped to being mostly middle class about 5 years ago.

Clearly the Chancellor can have little or no influence on the world price of oil, although he enjoys unbudgeted income when it rises. However, he is responsible for the greater part of the cost of diesel and petrol which is made up of fuel duty and VAT. These taxes constitute almost two-thirds of pump prices – for every £1.05 per litre the Government collects 66p.

You can quote the exact statistics of fuel tax to me as much as you want, but it still doesn't change the fact that long with running a car, fuel is actually cheaper than it was 30 years ago, inflation taken in to account.

The reason people are struggling with bills is a lot people were out-living means, buying houses they couldn't possibly afford and it's having a knock on effect at the economy as a whole. Being reactionary and reducing taxes to artificially try and boost confidence in the market will have little to no effect, as we've seen in the American market.

Many fuel retailers are barely clearing costs. There are now less than 9,500 forecourts in the UK, including supermarket filling stations. This is the lowest number of filling stations in the UK since 1912.

So? Can you actually show me that that means anything at all?

"A UK pensioner living in Spain can afford to run a car/buy fuel and still have a healthy eating style.
How can you possible say that we are the same as our neighbours in EU??"

I didn't say that, please don't misquote me. Maybe it is cheaper to run a car in Spain, that doesn't stop what I said being untrue.

I've seen other users post this problem and I've experienced it many time and it really puts people off the free software. I think this is why. Many times I paste to the text box and hit enter, instead of getting new results I get the message "to do this you need the Guevara Edition", now it doesn't actually mean search but open a new tab, however it's actually rather hard to know that for a normal user.
