I got the impression that there was some kind of snobbery going on. one of the guys got all sniffy when the other referred to something on the web - he said something about http being better.. Maybe I just mis-interpreted the whole thing :roll: Well there's no accounting for folk and their seemingl...
HTTP and IRC are two of the TCP/IP suite of Internet Protocols - HTTP is used to transmit webpages across the network (or web), whereas IRC is a different protocol, which is designed to enable internet chat communications. The differences between the protocols (and there's a number of them) is in wh...
I've spent half an hour on hold to GAME customer services today before giving up before my mobile credit runs out. I bought a pre-owned PS2 a week last Saturday and returned it a few days later as the laser didn't work. The deputy manager laughed at me and told me I have an attitude problem, just c...
I think XP will run dual core and quad core processors without any problems. ***Edit*** After making such a bold claim, I thought I'd better check. I still think XP will support both, as although Home is limited to 1 CPU, and XP to 2, Microsoft's definition is based on the number of CPU sockets on t...

I agree with you there - unless you're really into your 2D beat 'em ups or shoot 'em ups (and it does these very well) it doesn't really cater to other gaming "tastes".SirClive wrote:How about Consoles you wish you'd never owned!
Seag Saturn has never done anything for me.

You could always go in the #retrogamer chatroom on Quakenet if you want something of that fashion. There are still a few of us in there, but it continues to have the problem of people joining, getting disheartened because they don't get an immediate response and leaving 3 minutes later.

I have a load of consoles and the only 1 that constantly gives me problems (that is not current gen) is the dreamcast. Not too many problems tbh, the biggest issue was having to solder a new resistor onto the joypad circuitboard inside the console, the original had burned out. I feel comfortable kn...
I'm currently using an Asus P5K Deluxe which is a brilliant and feature packed board. I was thinking of using that to upgrade my computer. I have to save up a lot first though because I'm still using a socket 939 X2, so it means that I have to get the motherboard, CPU, cooler and RAM all in one hit...
I have the Quad Core Q6600, and it's very impressive. plus, it overclocks very nicely indeed. The 8500 is rubbish, though. 2 tips: 1) Dump the stock Intel heat sink and fan, and get something else. I have a Noctua hs/fan combo. Be careful, though, some heatsinks are so big, they may not fit in your ...
