ALL WE NEEDED WAS A FIELD GOAL
santana Icon : (18 October 2014 - 12:02 PM) arent there some other names that could have been cut instead
santana Icon : (18 October 2014 - 12:03 PM) chris owusu
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 October 2014 - 01:21 PM) Salas is better than Nelson
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 October 2014 - 01:22 PM) Nelson is rated as the worst wr in football this season
santana Icon : (18 October 2014 - 01:34 PM) he has to better than owusu or graham
518-JeTS-FaN Icon : (18 October 2014 - 04:36 PM) I posted an article about harvin and some of his issues. Dude seems like a wack job with talent. Hope rex can corral this guy or he could make the locker room implode
santana Icon : (19 October 2014 - 11:43 AM) Wasn't demean Jackson vilified as a gang affiliated street thug during his Philly release
santana Icon : (19 October 2014 - 12:31 PM) damn football sunday and no ones on
Canuck Jet Icon : (19 October 2014 - 01:00 PM) Yeah, cuz Rex is so good at developing offensive talent; 0 - Infinity
Canuck Jet Icon : (19 October 2014 - 01:02 PM) Harvin is Holmes 2.0, except punches for general bitchiness and annoying first down celebrations.
santana Icon : (19 October 2014 - 01:03 PM) i'm not buying into the media nonsense
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 October 2014 - 01:06 PM) Harvin is a playmaker, we needed one.
Canuck Jet Icon : (19 October 2014 - 01:15 PM) I hope he tears it up as a Jet, but he's been tossed from 2 teams in as many years and hasn't cracked 1000 yds in his career. I wouldn't be surprised if he had CTE from those brutal head hits, hence the aggression of late.
santana Icon : (19 October 2014 - 01:18 PM) I was tossed from two t-ball teams and some people still say i was the best hitter on timid deer lane
santana Icon : (19 October 2014 - 01:20 PM) bills RBs dropping like flies
Canuck Jet Icon : (19 October 2014 - 01:20 PM) We'll only really know when the autopsy his brain. Stay tuned! Guy never should have played the Super Bowl after the 2 concussions he suffered against the Saints.

ganggreen2003 Icon : (19 October 2014 - 08:43 PM) Manning just broke the Passing TD record
ganggreen2003 Icon : (19 October 2014 - 08:44 PM) :boredom: we could of had him a few years ago
ganggreen2003 Icon : (19 October 2014 - 08:44 PM) but at least he didn't break it on us
santana Icon : (19 October 2014 - 08:45 PM) I don't think he wanted to be here
santana Icon : (19 October 2014 - 08:46 PM) I don't really care for passing records being broken. Qbs now have a lot of rules in their favor
santana Icon : (19 October 2014 - 08:46 PM) I mean even the catch that got them into the redzone was a PI call that wouldnt of been called when favre played
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:16 AM) is that a suggestion that Favre was a better QB than Peyton?
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 08:05 AM) No it's a suggestion that passing records today are a bit skewed by the modern rules
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 08:05 AM) everyone knows Favre is the bestest ever that's not even an argument duhhhhh
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 01:18 PM) Cool jets throw blanket - http://www.woot.com/...ref=cnt_wp_2_22

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

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.

Windows 7 Download


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.
