ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:08 PM) One of the most positive things that this Marshall signing brings is Amaro getting more balls thrown to him
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:08 PM) and we'll finally have legitimate size at WR in the redzone
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:08 PM) but still the biggest issue is QB
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:09 PM) we can get monsters at WR but without a QB to throw them the ball, it's a waste of talent
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 04:30 PM) Or maybe its a waste of a QB with no WRs to throw to.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 04:53 PM) Or anyone to block for him
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 05:17 PM) fire em all
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 05:37 PM) Get pumped that we have actual wr talent now
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:25 PM) being that the JETS haven't had a WR go over 1,000 yards since 2007 when J-CO did it, is pretty indicative how bad our WR corps and subsequently our QB play has been
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:27 PM) and that was Chad's last year as a NEW YORK JET
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:35 PM) and as far as Harris getting re-signed the only good thing is he is not going to end up with the bills other than that...he's not worth 15 mil guaranteed
santana Icon : (Today, 08:30 PM) FIRE MARSHALL

How's the backwards compatibility with your games/apps?

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

I completely wiped Vista off before throwing on Windows 7 from disk, but I always select Vista as my OS and haven't had any problems to this date and I have alot of crap on my system.

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

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.
