F-Secure Suggests Ditching Adobe Reader For Free PDF Viewers

DanWS6 Re:Already there (249 comments)

Call me crazy, but I don't trust the US government to create a secure and bug free website for entering my personal information. Yes, that is correct, I'd rather send it via the USPS.

F-Secure Suggests Ditching Adobe Reader For Free PDF Viewers

DanWS6 Re:Already there (249 comments)

I was a firm believer in foxit, until I had to fill out my 1040 and related forms. Some of the fields were just screwed up. I had to cave and install acrobat. I died a little inside that day.

Valve Provides Details On Left 4 Dead Survival Pack DLC

DanWS6 Re:no new maps? (62 comments)

I agree. I'm not that interested in playing versus mode and survival mode will require playing with friends. Could you imagine how futile it would be playing on a pub? I bought L4D when it first came out for $50, while I have played it over and over I can't help wish they would've provided more than 4 hours of game play. My friends and I are able to play through each campaign on expert in rougly an hour. I'm ready for a few new campaigns, not new game play modes. I have a feeling that this new survival mode will turn out to be just like arena mode, popular at first but then it fades away.

State of Colorado Calls Firefox Insecure, IE6 Safe

DanWS6 Re:Where does it say FIrefox is insecure? (530 comments)

They edited the faq and removed that text.

It used to say:

Can I use Firefox or another Browser?

No! For security reasons, and some significant processing issues as well, the only supported Browser is Internet Explorer Release 6 or later.

Dell's First XPS System With AMD Phenom II Tested

DanWS6 Re:Pricing between i7 and phenom II 3ghz (75 comments)

Asus P6T deluxe V2: $280
6GB of 1300MHz DDR3: $120

People say this is expensive.

The first PC I built 10 years ago cost me ~$1500 for the case, 200 watt PSU, 500Mhz P3, asus motherboard, 512MB of ram and a 8MB video card. I could build a new I7 system for about $900 or $1200 after throwing in a NVidia 285 GTX.

Ubuntu Wipes Windows 7 In Benchmarks

DanWS6 Re:What sold me.. (781 comments)

I've grabbed a trial version of CrossOver and have been tempted to try it with L4D, TF2 and the FEAR 2 demo to see. If it can run them at similar frame rates without any crashes or glitches I'd be more apt to switch over. If I end up spending more time researching fixes than I do playing, I'll stick to windows.

Ubuntu Wipes Windows 7 In Benchmarks

DanWS6 What sold me.. (781 comments)

Is the gaming benchmarks.

I've been slowly switching from XP to Ubuntu on my work laptop, but I am still stuck with XP at home. I just play too many PC games to give up XP. I really don't care if it boots slower than Ubuntu, or takes longer to shut down. What matters to me is actually using the PC.

Force Unleashed will not be a PC title

DanWS6 DanWS6 writes  |  more than 6 years ago

DanWS6 (1248650) writes "I was really looking forward to Star Wars: Forced Unleashed ever since I saw the trailer. It was recently announced that there will not be a PC version and this is the excuse:

[If we made the game for high-end PCs], someone with a low-end PC would have a watered down experience, they would have to turn all the settings down and it wouldn't be the same game. On the other hand if we made that game for as many people as possible then it's not taking advantage of what those $4,000 systems can do.
It seems like a weak excuse to me but I'd like to hear everyones thoughts."

Who is responsible for messageboard content?

DanWS6 DanWS6 writes  |  more than 6 years ago

DanWS6 (1248650) writes "I run a message board for a local group of car enthusiasts. Recently a public dispute arose between two individuals, one an online reseller and the other a shop owner. The shop owner posted a thread stating that people shouldn't buy items from the reseller. The reseller replied back that people shouldn't have work done by the shop owner. The reseller then sent one of my moderators a pm threatening legal action if we do not delete the thread. I'm not big on censorship and in my eyes both sides are guilty of bashing one another. My question is: Does the reseller have a legal leg to stand on. Am I responsible for the content the shop owner posted? Is this worth me fighting or should I back down and delete the thread? Thanks."
