  1. An old game

    darn, but that game wasen't what i was looking for. i tried the demo of Firefight, and it's a pretty good game, especially for it's time. however, the only resolution the game would let me was 320x240. i think the game i was talking about was a bit newer than that one, maybe around 1998 or 1999.
  2. An old game

    after playing sketchfighter 4000 alpha, a piece of memery just resurfaced. it's like one of these moments where a long lost memory hidden in your brain for a decade suddenly appeared because of an event or thing which reminded you of it. there's this very old game, which i used to play which got deleted. the game is so old, it might be even before the year 2000. i do not remember the name, but there are still a few clues i can recall. -there are multiple levels, and multiple maps. -it's a windows game. -the environment is sometimes astroid-like, volcanic, or basically a wasteland. it's not on earth, it's on another planet, or moon. -the game is in a 3rd person view, similar to that of strategy games like starcraft or command and conquer. -the ship, which you see in a bird's eye view, has WASD control for movement and a mouse to control it's aim. the ship can completly stop it's movement. -there are minerals, which you can somehow collect (i'm not sure, but i think you get it from destroying an alien). the ship has a limited capacity, so the ship has to periodically return to the base and empty it into the bank. -there are weapons, and a lot of other upgrades which can be created using the minerals you collected. -by defeating, or activating switches, new pathways are found. this is how my memory clicked when i played sketchfighter on my ibook i'm sorry, but that's all i can remember. the game has a demo, and the full version has to be purchased.it was a lot of fun, and i really missed playing the game. i'm not really requesting the game, but i want the name of it.
  3. heatsink gap

    i have this gap around the same thickness as the diameter of a pencil lead used in those sharpening pencils, not the mechanical ones.it's between the processer, and the heatsink. what should i do: 1. get a copper plate, and sandwitch it between thermal grease. 2. put more thermal grease 3. put thermal pad, which is ussually thick enough for the task 4. use thermal putty, which is what is originally used in my computer. this is the problem i'm having on one of my computers, and i don't have the option of buying a cpu cooler to replace it. just one of these 4 options, which is the best.
  4. 0x0000007b BSOD right after boot logo.

    you sure? knoppix can help me recover my data right? i tried to reinstall windows. i can't. at first the instalation froze when the timer hit 34 minitues, and later, it won't even get there. the full eror is: " a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. if this is the first time you've seen this stop error screeen, restart your computer. if this screen appears again, follow these steps: check for viruses on your computer. remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. check your hardd drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive curruption, and then restart your computer. Technical information: *** STOP 0x0000007B (0xF88CD640, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000 0x00000000) "
  5. when i boot up my computer, everything is fine, and after showing the boot screen, a BSOD with 0x0000007b as the problem shows up. i looked it up, but it dosen't tell me how to fix the problem. I took it out, and installed it on another computer. the same problem, so i know it's the hard disk. i used the original HD of the other computer, and setted my problem disk to slave to salvage data. same problem occurs, boot screen, then BSOD. is there any way i can fix my HD? is there any way i can salvage the data inside?
  6. Insane

    it's an old article. actually what happened is that this guy posted this to see people's reactions. he recieved thousands of angry letters from apple enthusiasts, threatining to hang him up with a poll at his balls, pour mot motor on him,and light him on fire. it' actually fake. really

  9. Rk vs rocketdock ?

    I feel like using a hammer on somthing...or maybe someone really. you shoulden't compare things like that. sure you can have a list of feature comparason but for what purpose? i don't like comparing dev's releases and programs because some devs will be to "superior" and some will be very depressed and will give up, and that's the last thing i want a dev to do. so really. don't compare. if you want one that's good for you, try them out.

    isn't it in your trash bin? unless you used secure empty trash you can still recover it (i don't know the programs though)
  11. RK Launcher 0.3 - FEATURE REQUESTS

    just found this out when looking for tricks for my new ibook: http://reviews.cnet.com/4520-10165_7-5583993-1.html there's actually 3 effects. not 2. the third is hidden, and is called "Suck". neat effect. hope this will be implemented.

  14. iPhone

    pretty interesting idea. however, there are quite a few quirks that makes this not the most suitable phone to use though.
