skintigh2 Ceasars Palace, $25 per day (157 comments)

That was two years ago, I hope they are less insane now. That's $775 a month for internet, over $9,000 per year.

Their gym costs the same.

AMD Breaks 1GHz GPU Barrier With Radeon HD 4890

skintigh2 Re:AMD CPU too (144 comments)

I have bought several ATI cards over the years, and not once could I get the drivers that came with the card to install. I always had to download newer ones and install parts of those, reboot, then try to install the ones that came with it and get a little more to install, reboot, then try the new ones again, and they would bitch that I needed to install Y to be able to install X, but when I tried to install Y it required X, until I manually installed the card as a generic VGA card and then manually installed drivers for a much older card and then started over with alternating between different versions, etc. etc. etc.

My once many-hundreds-of-dollars top-of-the-line 850 XT PE AGP is still suiting me just fine (perhaps the fasted AGP card ever), but I haven't dared try to upgrade the drivers since I bought it years ago. But I might have to, CLI.exe or something crashes at bootup now.

Every nvidia card I've owned installed flawlessly the first time, without 3-30 reboots that ATIs require.

How Steam Revived a Dead Game

skintigh2 CnC Gold (234 comments)

OMG someone please revive the original Command and Conquer. That game was so much fun, and such a good strategy game, and not complicated by 2700 possible upgrades like current RTS games. Just guile and strategy by the players.
