http://www.sendspace.com/file/t7ndpr if any of you want to make up your own minds on the above incident. I should get a second account so I could drive with no care on one and then avoid bans with the other.
judging by the rubber your braking produced, it does look like you were going a bit too fast and weren't in full control. In that case I'd say you were in the wrong and made a poor choice. If you were in control, stuff happens, can't be helped
I myself and a few others wondered the same thing and I still don't know. I've nto cheated and I've repeated the benchmark several times, on a completely clean lfs, to make sure. Still end up in that place. I don't have a clue really, but my harddrive is, incidentally, a WD raptor, that's all I can imagine would make a difference, since the rest of my stuff is mediocre.
I just tried with only 2 instances, and I can't get above 30 fps. Granted, it's not a super system, but E8500@3500 mhz. XP SP3, I don't think I've ever been able to open more than one instance without it being slow.
Could still easily be your email account that was hacked. If the guy knows the pass, it's in his best interest to leave it, so you don't suspect anything. Then he requests the password from LFS and he has another password of yours. Are you following this?
