Just droping a few notes on the subject of carbon credits. You can buy these credits to 'clean up' the exhaust your airplane makes going to that fabulous vacation. Usually this will cost you about $20 per person. So where does this money go? Well, much is used for promotional purposes, employee perk...

Not sure if it is even vaguely related ... but the recent upgrade to ZoneAlarm's firewall is causing massive problems on peoples systems. Outlook crashes... Resource hogging on memory and CPU usage... a nasty add-on called Mail Frontier (the version that auto-instals simply causes chaos and only wor...

I have found the series thoroughly enjoyable. As to historical accuracy... well who's to say ... but at least they made an honest try of it. Regardless of the exact turning of events 2000 years ago the series gave a peek into some aspects of Roman life based on a viewpoint researched from our 'moder...

Funny, as you accuse others as having no sense of humour... And honestly it did go over your head if you couldn't laugh at the quip put up for our viewing pleasure.

Sigh ... Spearthrower ... it's called satire. In this case satire is being used as a way of raising questions about the validity of certain stances in a debate. Generally, the aim of such a tactic is to use humour to pull an individual out of a very narrowly focussed viewpoint and give them a chance...

Heh Heh... So if Mars is warming too... this should indicate that Earth's global warming is at least partly caused by the Sun... maybe some other extra-terrestrial influences as well. Oops... that's not allowed to be said as numerous scientists and foundations are funding their jetsetting lifestyles...

All I can suggest is that more patches will come 'in the fullness of time'. After all, the game has only been out for a few weeks. If you bought a Ford car and the wheel fell off on day three ... you'd have to wait three years before you got your car repaired for free (it's not under warranty) OR yo...

If you don't try to do it every week or two at bedtime ... you won't do it in time to save your butt. (this means it occurs monthly at a minimum ... even if you don't look at crap online ... just an occasionally mistyped website with hostile applets.)

Actually, I am using an FX 5200. It's not an ATI problem. This problem has intensified for me, and now I'm not able to get the game to run normally at all (at first it would only do this some of the time, now it's all the time).
