Re: OT: Annoying Vista Laptop and network

Try manually assigning the IP address. I had a similar problem with my Vista desktop (before I converted it to a Linux desktop); for whatever reason, it kept automatically taking an IP address that...

Re: OT: My computer is randomly freezing

Have you checked active processes? It's not only possible, but likely, that some process or another is eating the processor up.

Have you tried it with a Linux boot disk (to eliminate the...

Re: Don\'t Sleep and Drive

Eh, it's not that bad of a wreck. Only the one damaged section, and the tires are still attached to the car. For that matter, the thing probably still runs; if you swap out that damaged headlight,...

Well, we've all been terrorists for a while now.

Re: vengeance of the dead, how it works with 1000+

That'd do it. You'll want to put a turn count on there before it starts checking for nondecreasing HP, though - you don't want your entire army routing on turn 2 because nobody happened to be in...

Re: OT-D&D 4th edition game group?

Not immediately. I'm planning to wait for other people to be beta testers before I look at it too much.

I will, however, be going to gaming stores on June 7th to find out how much the market has...

Re: Warning! Do NOT apply XP SP 3!

Do note:
You can install several music players and sets of CD/DVD creation software just fine on a Linux box. For that matter, a Knoppix CD comes with several sets of both pre-installed and linked...

Re: Warning! Do NOT apply XP SP 3!

No, Linux isn't perfect. It is, however, considerably more stable than any MS box I've worked with. Software can't really deal with a hard disk crash - you pretty much need some amount of hardware...

Re: OT: Spam is puzzling me again...

Yes, easily. There's a BCC (Blind Carbon Copy) line (usually hidden until you change your e-mail client's options) that sends the e-mail to people without mentioning where it's going.

They're...

Re: OT: Apophis is going to kill us all

Actually, you can, you just need a very large wad of cash to dedicate to it (at least, in the US). For instance, there's a particular amount of car insurance required (I don't remember the...

Re: OT: Apophis is going to kill us all

Even if it hits, it'll hardly be a world-killer. Sure, if it hits the water, they'll be a lot of dead on the coast. Sure, if it hits a city, there's going to be some widespread death.

It's...

Re: OT: High-speed internet options

1) Try an ISDN line - more expensive than DSL, and less effective, but available basically anywhere they've got phone lines.

2) It's an option, but you'll need some tricks to be able to get in...

Re: OT: Jack\'s GMing - Recruiting Closed

Server closed; three players made it. Seven dogs, three human commoner zombies killed. 1,333 xp each. There were two alarm traps, but they were meaningless, as there was nobody to respond to them,...

Re: OT: Jack\'s GMing - Now Recruiting

Received two reasonably firm "yes" answers today, one "maybe" - Looks like we're liable to have a reasonably full party.

I do have one for the giantitp.com, though - and they've got a specific recruiting section that is fairly active. Hmm....
