If you don't mind taking chances with a refurbished card, Newegg has this one for $121 shipped.

I have this card, and it commonly Unlocks/Overclocks to X850XT speeds, mine does/did.  Probably the best bang/buck card out there afaik.

Keep in mind that Nvidia based cards play iD games (Quake, Doom, etc.) a lot better generally than ATI cards.  This should be more than enough for Q2 and most any current game as well though, at least at moderate graphic levels.

Thanks for the heads up console =)  Nice to know that you're aware of the problem and doing something about it too.  As always, you're the man!  Thanks =)

Good call plastik.  Quadz (I guess that's what he's going by now, I been out of the loop for a few months), certainly deserves any praise that comes his way for his outstanding efforts in making the TS community what it is.

:thankyou: Quadz/Console =)

L4m3r Demos / Re: Combi VS Purri
« on: January 26, 2006, 04:01:09 PM »
I just watched it for the first time.  He does seem awfully smooth with the chain.  He doesn't seem "jerky" though, or unnaturally twitchy though with the chain, which is IMO more of a tell-tale sign of a bot.  Bots aren't smooth, they twitch around as they "lock" onto the target.  I just didn't see that twitchy-ness with his chain.  I will say that Purri doesn't really change his direction of movement all that often though, when being chained that is.  He sorta just strafes back and forth in a really tight spot often, which as long as you're not over-predicting with the chain, you just keep the chain in an almost fixed position and it'll chew up someone doing that tight of a strafe.

And where exactly did you get the 60-70% chain accuracy figure for that match?

My opinion is that it's awfully suspect, but certainly by no means obvious if you ask me.  The lack of extreme jerkiness is what I didn't notice, and is what is usually apparent with bots.

Unfortunately it's not so easy to get good evidence of wh's. Also that silly 3rd-person config doesn't make it any easier. But okay, here are three more demos. (Recorded a few months ago (October) and made shorter by cutting out one or two boring parts.)
I wanted to describe some things that happen in the demos, but on second thought it's best to draw your own conclusions. I doubt I can get better 'evidence' than this, so if most of you think I got it all wrong I'll just drop it here.

What's with the dm8 demo where at frag #9, he's near the machinegun on third level, then warps to closer to the YA.  Did you stop the demo then start it over again, or can he teleport? =)

I've been using LimeWire now for a couple weeks or so, and I find it fairly adequate.  I'd say it's pretty good.

Hmm Im 6'5". Ill have to see if Id even fit in there :p Dont think Ill buy one soon, as I just bought the 280zx.

Supposedly there's a guy on the above mentioned NAM forums that's 6' 7" and he fits comfortably in it he says.

Mine is the Cooper S, so it's the supercharged model, rated at like 168HP according to Mini.  Mine has a 6 speed manual, limited-slip differential, sport package [which includes xenon headlamps, 17" wheels (which I'll probably change sooner than later as I'm not too crazy about em), dynamic stability control, front fog lamps, and hood/bonnet stripes, which I chose not to go with as I had just spent 8+ years with a truck that had em], the multifunction steering wheel, which is required for cruise control, has radio controls on it too, and a rear fog lamp.

It comes standard with power mirrors, locks, windows, an am/fm 6-speaker stereo w/ CD player with MP3 capability, manual air-conditioning, etc.

As far as driving it, it's a blast to drive.  I find it to be quite quick, and that's coming from driving the V8 Dakota pictured in the rear, that ran high 14's in the 1/4.  It handles remarkably, in fact I believe it's speed through the slalom for example, is better than anything shy of a porsche turbo.  Largely due to it's wide stance, and light weight, etc.

Only has like 1400 miles on it now, but so far I'm very pleased with it.  I've been driving it sorta hard, flooring it often, still having fun with it, so I've only been getting around 24MPG, a lot better than my trucks 15MPG from your daily ho-hum driving.  Supposedly I'd get 30-35MPG on the highway on longer commutes.

Check out for a message board filled with current, and wannabe MINI owners.  And check out if you would like to custom configure your own and see how much it would cost.  It's one of the most customizable cars I think from the factory.  Has like over 100 options at least.

Oh, and as far as price goes.  Unless things have changed in the past 2-3 months, you basically have to pay MSRP for them.  Dealers aren't having any trouble selling them at all, and in some areas of the country there is, or was a waiting list still.  So it's highly unlikely you'll be able to get a better deal on a new one at least.  They also are said to hold their value better than any other car sold in the US currently.

And as a note, I'm 6' 2", and I fit very comfortably in the front seats.  Although someone of my height would probably be not too comfortable in the back for any length of time.  There's plenty of space for the 2 people up front, lots of head room, and plenty of leg room too.  It's deceivingly roomy inside, for such a small car.  The rear seat folds down too, so as long as it's just 1 or 2 people, you have quite a bit of room to store luggage, golf bags, etc.

Anymore questions, just ask,or check out that NAM site (northamericanmotoring), lots of friendly people there.

Quake / Re: Warkilla - cheat or no cheat, that is the question?
« on: January 21, 2006, 11:00:18 PM »
Yeah, I haven't played in a while, but I do remember Warkilla.  I never thought he cheated.  I thought he was a better than average player, that spent too much time (for my tastes) collecting BFG cells and using only that, and then quad when he could.  But I never thought you were cheating in any way, shape, or form when you played.

Here's a few snaps of my '06 Mini Cooper S, I got it on November 23rd '05.  First pic has my old '93 Dakota in the background.  This was right after the first time I washed it.

I've been playing Everquest a lot (except this past week) since November I think.  I don't believe I've even loaded up Quake 2 since then, other than to check out a couple demos posted on these boards.  I've been switching back and forth between bouts of Everquest & Quake 2 for the last 4+ years though.

Yeah, definitely looking for one with no spyware whatsoever.
