  1. ... And a psychotic diagnosis from any psychology worker ...
  2. Anyone played Bioshock (/on the XBox 360) and think it isn't worth the purchase price?
  3. Wasps have a life-cycle that might be more congruent with life within a camera case ... "
  4. Run the SETI@Home or Protein-folding applications in the background!
  5. I can see Vista 64bit repeating the Windows for Workgroups 3.11 trend that saw RAM capacities jump from 1MB to 32MB ..! Also, the harddrive I read about was the new iteration of the Spinpoint series, which is a Samsung, specifically the Spinpoint T166 HD501LJ).
  6. Dang, I was hoping this was the next expansion from Obsidian. I can't say I was impressed by the Premium modules, either in content or dedication of the designers ... they showed some promise but obviously their return wasn't sufficient to motivate anyone to carry the effort onward ...
  7. Yeah, that's probably the next purchase ... though I don't have access to my PC and I haven't played MotB or anything at all for a few months ... you'll like EP2, it's like freakin Empire Strikes Back. I even thought it was better than the original HL2 I'm actually tossing up whether to purchase an XBox 360 or a Playstation 3 to play the Orange Box, since I haven't got (and won't for the conceivable future) access to my dear old laptop. A factor is whether I can play Bioshock (the criticality of this factor correlates to the fun coefficient of Bioshock).
  8. The influence system is pretty critical to any systemic process for monitoring the impact of decisions and actions taken by the PC throughout the game. Just removing it won't solve the problem it was created to address. Also, I like the way it was implemented. (Even if I do reload, I *like* re-loading. It's like exercise.)
  9. Just read ... And comprehend?
  10. Crucifixion, for the first offence.
  11. Yeah, that's probably the next purchase ... though I don't have access to my PC and I haven't played MotB or anything at all for a few months ...
  12. Not really ... it would help your case to quote the actual research AND for it to voluminously detailed and exhaustively tested ... but it seems that they had some initial scary findings (MAY skew telemetry equipment by up to five degrees ..!) and now want to investigate further.
  13. It was an etymology joke. The English word hippopotamus derives through classical Latin, from the Greek compound of nouns hippop

  16. You would have difficulty in any subsequent applications for other countries, and they would expect you to be a citizen (or able to become one ... not sure about the popularity of US citizens for roles that require the people to blend in ... "
  17. Hey, that silk scarf idea is pretty good. Also, dental floss. I also recommend a small quantity of washing powder, to do your smalls every night, for use in the basin of your hotel room, though you might need to keep a set of three, so that there is time for the damp set to dry whilst one is being worn (ambient humidity and wind velocity within same being critical correlates). Um, I wouldn't recommend leaving ANY belongings unattended ANYWHERE (that's why travelling in pluralities gives one options) ... if they're not valuable they aren't worth taking in the first place, and if they're v
  18. I guess the big-ticket achievement of Special Relativity is the codification of the speed of light as a finite, knowable and predictably static value irrelative to any other factor (okay, the medium through which light travels does affect its velocity, but generally people talk about the speed through a vacuum).
  19. I guess the use of Need for Speed: Carbon and Quake are just to make up a large catchment ... otherwise I can't see the relevance. Though I don't mind the advertising, which I foresee some local teacup meteorologists might have some qualms about ...
  20. Arguing Hume is pointless (even Bertrand Russell opines, in History of Western Philosophy, that he created his own cul de sac in which to disappear: an unreachable redoubt of logic). Why? I'm glad you asked. If you read the discussion you will see it plainly, too. If we agree with the assumption that causation MUST be proved before we can make use of it, then all the scientists will start packing up their equipment and looking for a new hobby/career. There is no way to "prove" causation. So what then? In the meantime, as taks pointed out, people use the models that science gives us (based
  21. ditto Typically (if my PC is a fighter class) I have to rely on my super-meta-clairvoyance (+3) to choose the correct specialization early on.
