Default Re: Saturday Commentary

I remember the good old days of tweaking my P3 650 with 192MB of sdr133 and AGP S3 Savage4 32MB.

Getting games to run well (16bit color) (ST-Armada, QuakeIIIA, UT, DeusEX) was the most fun I had. I actually had to patch together a WinXP driver for the S3 to run Return to Castle Wolfenstein (openGL). That was 4-6 years ago, nowadays I have a bit more money, and I'm not squeazing quite as much from my hardware anymore, I replaced a Ti4200 in january 2004 with a FX5900xt. I just know that when GTs will be <=300$ CAN, I'll be buying.

It's not exactly like my Ti4200 couldn't run games anymore, I just wanted to be able to stop seeing this 'moiré' in far away side-seen textures... (AF)

We're all spoiled brats

Mild agnosticism —the view that the existence or nonexistence of God or gods is currently unknown but is not necessarily unknowable, therefore one will withhold judgment until/if more evidence is available. A weak agnostic would say "I don't know, but maybe you do."
