I kind of miss gaming, but I doubt that thing will run on my laptop. Or look halfway decent. And dialup internet aint the best for MP games. Speaking of gaming, I won a free Xbox at work, but it doesn't work. And Microsoft wants $80 to fix it. Not cool.

Shoot my computer won't even load IE7, it quits half way through install.....now I just read where the great new windows vista won't let Symantec or MacAfee into it's kernel, so there goes any sort of quality defense....... I'll be sticking to XP till all the experts figure it all out.

So, right now I'm researching parts and am going to build my first pc....the new graphics cards and chipsets are insane.....

I'll try to keep you abreast.... oh, and RC, I like the sound of Red Orchestra....

Oh, I hate the sound of Vista. There was an article in PC magazine about it. Sounds like it is going to be awful-no XP programs suported.

RC
I read about the Red Orchestra on the web after chatting with you and it sounds very cool. I am definitely going to get it.

Don't hold me to that, but that's how it sounded to me. And the best news is, they are disabling all support of XP a couple of years after it hits the market, so us holdouts can't update virus scaners, McAffe, etc.

I'd go Linux but there aren't enough program options.

RO is a great game, haven't played myself but my friend used the free trial version and it was supposed to be very cool. It will probably not work on my old computer. Even Call of Duty 2 will not.


Vista has its problems, like powerpoint not working, but don't be too harsh on it, it will get better with time.

Larry, you are going to build your own computer, wow! I guess all that Panther Aber gets the skill level up.

BTW I am still using IE 6.0. I have mozilla installed but only use it to look at my school's website and nothing more.
