Piece of cake.
Howzat!

What do I get out of this deal?

Saying that the Mayans "predicted" stuff is as accurate as Nostradamus doing the same thing. Translation of Mayan writings is going to be sketchy at best - they weren't exactly friendly to outsiders. So you start with a mistranslation (even if only slightly) and that gets taken over the years to mean different things by different people (before written documentation). The next thing you know an event has happened and then in hindsight you can apply some of that "knowledge" to the event and claim that they were prophetic.

If, for example, I said that a life-changing catastrophy will happen near the beginning of the 21st century it could mean anything. A plane might crash, a boat might sink. Something is inevitably going to happen that will change a few people's lives. It's called "subjective validation", people. You give vague information so that people who want to believe something read more into it than you could ever have known to begin with.

I've only ever tried a handful and they all seem to be pretty similar in terms of what you get from them. The best ones seem to be the sort that employment agencies use when you sign up with them - they have a good range of standard office activities which gauge typing speed and accuracy as well as accuracy and speed of copying information from one source to the other. Unfortunately I don't know the names of any of them!

In before the LMGTFY link!

Try this

40-60 isn't that bad, but the best way to increase your speed is just by typing more. Stop abbreviating, start using punctuation. Do a lot of programming in BASIC, that's pretty much what sorted me out

Quote from Stefani24 :What's up with drummers?

Generally? Nothing, other than they spend their time just hitting stuff. Ours was being a pain in the fundamental orifice earlier on and it resulted in a large and pointless email argument.

Now my head's sore and I can't find a decent picture to reflect it. This'll do :banghead:

Stupid bloody drummers!

The dinosaurs did that joke before you

Those Mayans and their crazy base-20 maths. Will they never learn?

You won't get something that lives up to your expectations as a driver AND is fuel efficient. The two don't go hand in hand. The Mazda MX-6 is fun (albeit a bit old now) but that 2.5 V6 will be fairly thirsty.

I wouldn't spend that amount of money on a car that's 5 years older than the one you already have.

I know that people like their brand whoring round here but there's about a million other cars I'd rather have than a late-90s box saloon, despite the Merc badge.

Nothing wrong with diesels, especially if (like me), most of your journeys are motorways. They're not quite as fun pulling away from lights, but I love my TDI (that red I is massively important, don't you know)

Think about it. If we hadn't been around to correct them and someone found a non-Y2K-compliant PC some alien beings might have thought we predicted the world would end in 1999.

And @AstroBoy, our sun is too small to go supernova. It will expand to become a red giant (at which point it'll swallow Earth) then cool to become a white dwarf. But you don't need to worry about that for a couple of billion years

It might do now, but it possibly didn't when this thread was active - a year ago.

I'm currently listening to the amazing Albany Down debut album South of the City. It's uttery fantastic and everyone should rush out and buy a copy when it's available

Maybe Pastrana is actually a time traveller. I bet this jump was taken at 88mph

Only if you happen to own the game you'd be modding

I have the beta CD of MCO, and there was a rumour flying round for ages that said it had an offline mode built in. But it doesn't.

Something slightly messed up on that timeline

Quote :Timeline
* First Pro Win
* 2000 X Games
* 1999 X Games
* 2006 Rally America
* 2001 SX Championship
* 2006 X Games
* 2000 MX Championship
* 2007 Rally America
* 97 Amateur Champion
* First Grand Canyon Jump
* First Leno Appearance
* Travis and Wiley
* Early Rally Career
* Birth
* First Race
* Amateur Career
* 2000 MotoX Des Nations
* 2008 Rally America
* 2008 X Games
* 2009 Rally America

Whoever put that up obviously doesn't understand that a timeline should be chronological order, with events over time in a line. I thought the hint was in the name

You'll notice that the article in the OP says "we plan to", not "we will". Plans change, as per the post that bunder quoted.

I plan on being at work tomorrow, but I might get killed crossing the road either tonight or on the way tomorrow. As a result, and not necessarily any fault of my own, that wouldn't happen.

I'd be up for that, but I'd need to install it again first
Would be better if we could recruit a whole load of folks and do a Steam Tour across a few games

I enjoyed Avatar, but we didn't see the point in paying the extra for the 3D version (especially since it doesn't work for the gf). I reckon the first half of the movie is better than the second though.

I got DoD:Source free with HL2 and enjoyed it (despite not usually liking WW2-themed games). But yes, no bugger plays it.

I got L4D2 and it's awesome. Being forced to leg it rather than turtle up makes it intense.
Oh, and Audiosurf is made of f*cking win

Surely it can't be that hard to re-apply your old physics mods even if it did. Backups, people!

Motor City Online was awesome back in the day. Sadly, contrary to popular belief the beta CD doesn't have a working offline mode. I'm hoping that Motor World Online ends up half as good.

I think you're just being difficult. All stories of humans v zombies are going to be similar, but it doesn't mean L4D is anything like Dead Rising or any of the other millions of zombie movies and books that have been released over the years.
Source is the engine it's built on, but it's perfectly possible to upgrade that behind the scenes. The entire Source engine got a massive overhaul for HL2:Ep 2 because large outdoor sections weren't really possible before. And any AI script can be rewritten without a serious engine change.
