Is there 2 year contract when getting the subsidized version? How is it enforced that you pay LIVE for 2 years after buying the console?

brenddie or ... (300 comments)

"The fact that there are no disc-shaped aircraft in the skies today, though, suggests that the USAF's flying saucer efforts probably never got past the prototype stage."

Windows 7 Hits RTM At Build 7600.16385

brenddie Re:Ok, I'm just going to come out and say it... (341 comments)

32bit XP limit of 3.5GB is an artificial limit imposed by MS, same as 32bit win2003 standard. 32bit Win2003 Enterprise can use PAE to handle above 4GB. 32bit Win2003 standard is limited to 4GB unnecessarily

Dont know if Vista7 32bit has the same limitation but wouldn't surprise me
