Re: Best place to buy gaming laptops?

Newegg has always been my place to go for this kind of stuff, but I've never seen them offer Intel CPU/AMD graphics together...does that combination even exist?

Re: Descent 3 Linux Files

Oh hey, sweet. I was pondering whether I'd have to go digging for my D3 Linux copy (which is who knows where these days), but this means I don't have to. A couple things on my experience, I had some issues with starting up the game in fullscreen, which I could only solve by completely killing X with...

HTTP 500 sometimes means an ASP script error, but I haven't touched the ASP scripts on the site for some time now. The other kind of server errors usually fix themselves semi-quickly.

Blatant copying can possibly destroy any modified files on the board. And I'm pretty sure there are a handful of mods installed, so the code changes need to be applied manually.

Of course, if EasyMOD is installed, that's a different story, as it'll do the upgrade for you :P.

This is one reason why I dislike the MMOs that you have to buy in order to create an account. The two that I play are available to be bought, but it's not required, and they can both be downloaded from the Internet legally.

It shows modes that the NIC is capable of, but it can't figure out if the device on the other side has those capabilities or not. I've got experience on this one, set a NIC to 100Mbit when it was only connected to a 10Mbit hub ;). The disconnected icon came up real quick :P.

If you set it to a speed it can't use (ie, 100Mbps on a 10Mbit hub/switch), the device won't connect at all. Best leave it at Auto, it will pick the highest capable speed on its own.

Nice thread revival :P.

While I personally liked D3's singleplayer, it was really slow in getting started. The first mission (which was all you had in Demo2) was REALLY boring.

But that was just one problem, and is all I have to say for now :P.

Perhaps there's a DMA or IRQ conflict in the system? Check to make sure your sound card is the only thing using the DMA and IRQ it's been assigned. Newer systems don't have issues with this, but older systems do.
