Uh, with number 2, doesn't a high end graphics card need 12v on the 12v rail, and not "a lot of voltage"?
Centronix or Parallel probably.
Yes, but if I remember correctly, he didn't make the ZZT STK. Chronos or someone else did, and yes, it did make it MUCH better for making games...until external editors came out.
Man, I used to love ZZT. It honestly had a decent OOP programming language built-in. Too bad it didn't allow you to extend it... WiL ftw!
Haha, I'm getting the same feeling. I installed the beta on my MSI U100, and performance-wise, it's actually quite decent. Still surf the internet just fine and everything, all the eye-candy is easily working (CPU-based, of course), and I think the only driver that didn't work at first was my wireless...which required me to hit Windows Update real fast...everything else "Just Works".
Yes, that's the exact same thing I try to tell people...my car's an automatic, but has a tach on it. At 35mph, my car is doing around 2k rpm...at 40mph, I'm doing around 1.2k...I don't do more than 5 over in neighborhoods...but on the open road an stuff, if I notice I can go up a gear by going FASTER, I do so...why waste the gas by going slower?
