Re: Gone.. tired..

What made me even angrier or rather sad, was that I was now being put in the same category as he and that my friends, is not me. I didn't see that but am having a hard time imagining anyone being so crass as to lump you in the same bucket as ive... :shock: Anyway, rest assured you're not... :mrgreen:

Re: Car Talk

I had one of these once, a '93 Saturn SC2. Man, what a sweet ride! You don't see them around anymore. Mine ended up at the bottom of a holding pond on the I-94 bypass north of Minneapolis on a cold, snowy January morning... :roll:

Re: Indy XL TrueColor

When I used IRIX 5.3 on my Indy, changing the Xserver file, it was possible to use truecolor, the photos were super perfect and bright. I know it was simulated, but it was possible. How to do this in IRIX 6.2 or 6.5? Depending on what your Indy can actually do, it would probably be some variant of ...

Re: Fuel DMediaPro DM6 PCI Digital Video

Re: is something going wrong with the movie industry?

Despite the horrible reviews I actually watched ISRA 88 (a.k.a. Mission 88 a.k.a. Beyond the Edge ) and quite enjoyed it.

Re: Why a static address not shown on the router

He competed on the Bud Lite pro mogul tour for a couple of years. I typically manage to get in ~30 days of Colo...
