Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 August 2014 - 11:10 AM) anyone have a stream for the preseaosn agme by chance?
ROBJETS Icon : (22 August 2014 - 09:06 PM) Don't read to much into Mark in the preseason. He usually looked good in the preseason even in a Jets uniform.. Big difference from regular season where the 1st string defense is playing 100%.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 August 2014 - 09:09 PM) A lot of 1st stringers are just getting reps in and trying not to get injured. Its only the backups trying to keep or get a job playing hard every down. If preseason qb play meant anything then Matt Simms would be the starting qb of the Jets.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (23 August 2014 - 12:00 AM) In Geno we trust
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (23 August 2014 - 07:23 AM) preseason or not, our offense hasn't looked competent in a while like it does this year. our rushing attack should be very good. Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory could be a dynamic duo

FlyHiJets Icon : (25 August 2014 - 01:04 PM) Champ Bailey to be released by Denver. Considering how busted up we are and Patterson now being suspended, do we take a look?
FlyHiJets Icon : (25 August 2014 - 01:05 PM) Cro rumored to be gettin released from Arizona. We should definitely bring him in since he already knows the system and he's bett erhtan our 3rd/4th stringers which is where we're at at this point.

Jets tried trading WR Stepehen Hill this summer. No takers. Let's see if final cuts today and Saturday change that equation.

Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:52 PM) any CBs that are decent on the trade block or facing salary cuts?

HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:13 PM) f*** a CB problem
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:49 PM) need 1 more in the fantasy league
RetireChrebet Icon : (Yesterday, 08:33 PM) Dimitri suspended for the rest of preseason. I'm sorry, I know we are bone dry at corner these days but they should have cut this prick on the spot . He's going to get torched regardless this year and I'd rather cut ties with any potential cancerous attitutudes before the season even starts.
RetireChrebet Icon : (Yesterday, 08:34 PM) Where I come from you take responsibility for your actions. Not showing up for a game is cowardly and selfish. f*** him
RetireChrebet Icon : (Yesterday, 08:36 PM) Also he doesn't know what the acronym AWOL means so he's also an idiot. No wonder he's never been anything but a journeyman corner is this league.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:11 PM) So how do you really feel?
RetireChrebet Icon : (Yesterday, 11:18 PM) I think my last three posts pretty much summarize how I feel haha. He's making 1.5 mill this year and no call no shows because his feeling are hurt. Would rather you play corner azjetfan than this guy
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 08:12 AM) Need 1 more for FFB!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:39 AM) Stephen Hill is going to get cut, guy sucks. Greg Salas is a better football player and deserves a spot over him
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 11:27 AM) So when do we show up to 115s house with pitchforks, tar and feathers?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 12:03 PM) i'd rather see idzik go then hill. fire idzik
bleedsgreen Icon : (Today, 12:21 PM) Hill is such a disappointment. I really was hopping for so much when he scored 2 TDs his first game
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:11 PM) We need to get the J-E-T-S chant back this year to the way it was
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:13 PM) idk if any of u guys went to any of the games last year[Im sure some of u did] but im not a fan of the drumline leading the chant
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:14 PM) its not the same as 70,000 people doing it during every kickoff and after every score
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 05:43 PM) injuries and poor QB play aren't good for a WR to develop
Jetsman05 Icon : (Today, 06:08 PM) 115 and Hill. Lol!

so quick question. when you install programs on it do you choose the XP version or the vista version? i would assume vista because upgrading from vista doesn't lose any data. it was supposedly made seamless. however from xp you need to clear and reformat the drive to upgrade it

cool. the one thing that sucks when upgrading a PC is having to reinstall every program you have. thats one place mac got it right. all you need to do is cop all the files over. programs don't get installled, there all self contained. Windows needs to move in that direction

So I ran some game demos on my new rig to see how it would fare. I started off with something easy first:

SW LEGO. No surprise here, it ran great.


FEAR Extraction. Using the auto-set, I got fantastic game play; clear, crisp, and no lag whatsoever. It looked and felt like playing a console.


CRYSIS. Even on all low settings at 800x600, this game looked and played great. This is a VERY graphics-intensive game that usually destroys lesser video cards and laptops in most product reviews. I seriously expected not to be able to play this worth a damn with a meager 256 dedicated, but it worked well and looked fine to my eye.
I did however shut down my ISP and all active taskbar applications before running it.

YAYYYY!!!! banana019.gif

Its been tested by a lot of top companies and they reported no issues. The best they've seen from Microsoft. I pre ordered my copy last week on Amazon for $49.99 to ship October 23rd. Can't wait for 7. This is going on my desktop. Running Vista on the laptop.

Windows 7 should be the best thing to hit the market from Microsoft in a long time. Got this when it was in the initial beta stage & the bugs have been getting worked out. The RC is now available for anyone to download & that is pretty much what the final version will be. There may be very minor changes but nothing drastic.

You can't upgrade from XP, but there is a way to save all your data so that its still there after doing a clean install. Nice little added feature IMO. Everyone's going to be saying Vista what? when this does finally come clean.

If anyone wants to try this, the RC will still be good until at least July of next year with full support, so if you want to wait a while to see how many issues there are before buying it, just get the release candidate, test it on your machine & if you like it, keep it. If not, go back to XP.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

Someone school me.

If I downloaded Windows 7 off one of my torrent sites, burned it to DVD and installed it -- I could have it on my Dell Inspiron?

If so, I'll do that shit tonight. I just did a factory restore on my Vista last week and it pissed me off. I'm about to buy a couple 1.5 TB external drives to transfer my media to. Also, fuck paying.

You don't need to DL it from a torrent site. You can get it directly from Micorsoft. Here's a link & all the info you need including a link for a test to see if your Inspiron can handle it or not. I think the minimum requirements are very low like a 1 gig processor & a gig of ram. That's almost nothing these days.

watch out for the trial though

QUOTE
Watch the calendar. The RC will expire on June 1, 2010. Starting on March 1, 2010, your PC will begin shutting down every two hours. Windows will notify you two weeks before the bi-hourly shutdowns start. To avoid interruption, you'll need to install a non-expired version of Windows before March 1, 2010. You'll also need to install the programs and data that you want to use. (Learn more about installing Windows.)


so basically after march 1st of next year you'll have to but it or switch back to vista

What you find on a torrent site will only be the same most likely. I never use torrents anyway. Much easier with newsgroups & less risk involved.

I'm registered with Toshiba for a disk when Win 7 finally ships, but it seems like if you're eligible for the upgrade you should be able to download from MS and just make back up disks like the ones my laptop pretty much commanded me to do as it's first operation out of the box.

And one more thing:

God Bless Ion Storm. I downloaded some demos of my favorite old games last night, and DX1 fired up and played great unlike Descent 3 or Doom3.

I hope Win 7 will finally address these kinds of descrepencies.
