Comment Re:Stop developing 64bit (Score 1) 242

I'm shocked to see such a comment from someone with a four digit UID. Maybe today the difference between 32 and 64 bit isn't obvious, but Window 3.x, a 16 bit OS, didn't become unusable immediately following the release of NT4 and 95, but could you imagine trying to use 3.x in, say, 2004?

Remember, no one needed more than 640k of ram at one time, either.

Comment You know..... (Score 1) 502

I recently broke out my old Live 5.1 to play around with on my PC, because I was having a weird noise issue with the on board sound, and Creative's 64 bit beta drivers did not work. But guess what, C media had drivers for the now ancient 8738 that worked perfectly. On Board sound is still bottom rung stuff, but at the same time the bottom rung has improved noticeably. Another thing people forget is that on board sound is still connected to the same bus that off board sound is. Usually what you get with a sound card is a better dac.

Comment Three wheeled vehicles. (Score 1) 431

There have been three wheeled vehicles and at least two different trucks imported in the past, but I'm guessing someone in the government didn't get their palms greased, or possibly they got their palms greased by the wrong individuals who didn't like competition, because they disappeared rather quickly.

Comment Gaming. (Score 4, Insightful) 178

Taking time to chat during a streamed TF2 game...

Well there's the problem right there.

It kills me how people complain about how in a hurry they are and how they never have the time to do anything, and they never connect it with the fact that they're always gaming.
