I still play Quake1 from time to time. It's still my favourite FPS of all time.
As for Carmageddon, if you have a decent Android or iPhone, you'll definitely want to pick this up: http://www.carmageddon.com/funsize/carmageddon
the convenience of not having to drive yourself or pay attention to the road, coupled with the convenience of because able to go directly from point A to point B at your convenience. I too would opt for this convenience if it was a mature enough technology.
This post needs more convenience.
This is purely anecdotal (as are all the other comments on here, tbh) but I've been gaming on 8.1 since it came out and have had absolutely no issues whatsoever. If anything it's better than before.
Maybe the fact that I have a Logitech gaming mouse with its own special software and drivers helps? I always turn off Windows' control of the mouse drivers in the Logitech panel and set it up in there, which means I get a consistent feel, even across reinstalls.
This post made me think immediately of this comic strip.
Yep, I've used Pale Moon for quite a while now. It's great to have a properly optimized 64-bit Firefox build on Windows. Moonchild (the dev) is generally very responsive on the forums and quick to fix bugs.
I use 13 popular Firefox Add-ons and they all work absolutely fine in Pale Moon. I'd recommend it.
Dude, you're Australian. You're lucky to have some pretty strong consumer protection law on the books.
According to my Aussie friend if you have a problem with Telstra, or any other Aussie telecoms company, you contact the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman and your problem will almost always get sorted quickly. He's had to call them when Telstra have dragged their feet fixing his Internet connection. After he complained to the Ombudsman, Telstra were calling HIM back and apologising, and had a team out in his neighbourhood fixing the problem the next day.
You still would though. You know you would.
This is just a guess.. but might they not have been playing on a association with a certain historical event.
"Liberation kits", after all.
Of course white people can still be called terrorists, but only if they've DDoSed a corporate website or similar... simply add the "cyber-" prefix and you're ready to go (to court).
Yes, it's ridiculous.
An Aussie friend tells me that he and his mates refer to VB as "Vaginal Backwash".
Whether that's better or worse than cat-piss...
In my experience, they WERE almost always caused by buggy device drivers, and Windows' poor handling of buggy device drivers, rather than the hardware.
Windows' handling of device driver failures has greatly improved over time, so now when a (for example) display driver has a shit-fit, Windows can successfully recover, rather than just barfing a blue screen, so maybe NOW your point is more valid, but it certainly wasn't prior to the introduction of Windows Driver Foundation.
