Re: Homeworld Remakes, It's Actually Happening!!!

It very much won't, if only because if you're doing well you'll have a much, much larger fleet of assault frigates to contend with. That said, it's not terribly hard to bring your own capital battlefleet to bear if you're careful. *sigh* Gearbox had the time and budget to pull in Karan S'jet's orig...

Re: Generation Y less likely to drive

Now, go ask someone living in the more rural areas, where...

Re: StarDestroyer.Net will turn 10 years old on July 2, 2012

Oh wow, this place has been around 10 years already? I was only 19 when this board came online. While I don't really post much here I'm amazed it's already been so long.

Hell I'm also one of the earliest members, joined a few days after the board came up.

Re: Anti-virus question - is AVG still the best?

I've also seen a lot of issues where when you don't upgrade AVG to the new version, it suddenly start making your system run like absolute shit for some reason. I've switched to Avast. Malwarebytes is good for eliminating problems, but I don't think the free version offers any real-time protection.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S - Skype and firmware

After seeing this thread I decided to get mine updated to 2.3.5, since T-Mobile is going to wait until the 24th century to push the update out, apparently. Tried Kies and had my own issue. Namely, it said "unregistered device" and wouldn't let me even hit the update button. Huh!? Whatever, I went he...

Now it's bugging me about updating to 8.0, with some 7-8 updates incompatible with it. Really, with this new release schedule, you'd think addon authors would just make maxversion=10 or...

Re: Samsung Galaxy question

In that vein, you really should consider some sort of minimal data package with a modern smartphone. Pretty much every application that does something useful expects an Internet connection.

Re: Your best gaming experience (I.E. your favorite game).

My best gaming experience was by far Halo 2 multiplayer, for several reasons: My work schedule was odd, so I basically would stay up late every night, usually playing from 10pm or 11pm to 2am. The thing is, almost all the people I played with, including Laird, got on at those same times - we'd alway...

Finally got a chance to see it. Loved it. As for the ending... I'm pretty certain that it was, in fact, real. The top never wavered in a dream, ever. Nolan also seemed to make it fairly clear that the totem was an accurate way to determine dream from reality. With how well done the rest of the movie...

I know. The change from 2.x to 3.0 wasn't quite as significant as this change, though, so I'm not surprised in the least.

It's also only Beta 1.
