    Windows 8

    I don't understand why they even made Windows 8 in the first place! Windows 7 was a great product and they could easily still be selling licenses for it, making money like they did for years with XP! I've been using Windows 8 in a VM too, and it literally feels just like iOS. When I get on my Windows 7 computer, I'm at the center of power, able to do pretty much anything. Then I hop on Windows 8 and it's like I'm using my phone again, not able to do anything quickly or efficiently.
  2. But what incentive would the cats have to try to take down the T Rex? In reality it seems far more likely they would all scamper away. Plus like the others said above with that massive number of kittens they would never all be able to attack the dinosaur at once, there's just too much volume of cat to fit on or around the dinosaur at once. It would be like that movie 300 where the Spartans were way outnumbered but still won initially because they could only be attacked by so much force at once.

    New Server

    Hahaa GeoTool now tells me your site is located in the Netherlands... I came here before I even saw this topic and I was like, 'wtf...?' It is noticably faster though
  4. I could send you links to American sites but then that wouldn't do much for you since you're in Romania..... When picking the manufacturer just check to make sure it has a decent heatsink and that it's gonna fit in your case. Most websites list the dimensions of cards.
  5. The GTS 250 would do just fine running GTA4 maybe on high settings... but it probably won't run on 450W.
  6. Is that Romanian money? Where I shop, a brand new GT 240 can be found for $35 and a GTS 250 is around $80....
  7. Why do you say that? The 3xx series isn't even in the same category as all the 200's.. they only made low-end cards for 300, it was like a sub-generation, same as the 100-series. The 200-series are actually quite good cards. Except for DX11, buying 200-cards now can get you performance on the level of the new cards but at a lower price.
  8. Your motherboard doesn't need to support GDDR5. GDDR5 is the form of memory that the video card uses; it has nothing to do with your motherboard. The main things that determine whether or not your video card will work are: 1) Slot type (is it, PCI, PCI-E, AGP, etc.) 2) Power requirements 3) Dimensions 4) Driver compatibility I'd say you're all set on all of those except number two. All new video cards are PCI-E and I can guarantee that so is your motherboard.
  9. This clan doesn't exist anymore . Notice our last posts were almost 2 years ago....
  10. Rather than guessing you could just take a ruler and measure the length of your case from the backplate to the drive bay to determine how long a card would fit.... quickly looking online the longest GTX 560 I could find was 9.4" the shortest was 8.2"; it all depends on the manufacturer. When I did this with my GTX275 my estimate was accurate to within a quarter of an inch and my card was 3/4 inch away from the end of my case. As for the PSU, 450W likely (almost certainly) won't cut it especially if it was cheap to begin with. The GTX 560 isn't a huge power hog but you still should have at least 550-600W minimum for a card like that.

  12. Hey, If anybody is knowledgeable, I really could use some help here. I'm trying to write a script that makes it so that when using a screen width of 1280 or lower, Google shows one ad at the top of the page. With screen widths over 1280, it shows 2 ads along the side of the screen. I've checked it several times and I don't know what I've done wrong (but I'm also a beginner). The script works flawlessly in all versions of Firefox for both high and low res (I checked with FF 2.0, 3.0, 3.5, and 3.6) but in IE6 and IE8 while displaying almost correctly at the high resolution, it gets completely screwed up at the low resolution. Basically I'm just using Javascript to insert HTML comment tags around the ads that I don't want to appear for that resolution. <!-- Test run of Google AdSense --> <!-- One ad floats left, one floats right, the rest of the body is center aligned in between (high res only) --> <!-- There are 3 ads, scripting makes it so that 2 appear on the sides with a screen width above 1280 pixels, and below 1280 pixels just one appears across the top --> <script type="text/javascript"> <!-- var skip1 = "<!--"; if ( screen.width <= 1280 ) { document.write (skip1); } //--> </script> <div style=" float:left; font-size:7pt; color:#777; "> Advertisement<br /> <script type="text/javascript"><!-- google_ad_client = "pub-9736870014804453"; /* 160x600, created 2/2/11, left side homepage */ google_ad_slot = "6021069285"; google_ad_width = 160; google_ad_height = 600; //--> </script> <script type="text/javascript" src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js"> </script> </div> <div style=" float:right; font-size:7pt; color:#777; "> Advertisement<br /> <script type="text/javascript"><!-- google_ad_client = "pub-9736870014804453"; /* 160x600, created 2/2/11, homepage */ google_ad_slot = "3502793671"; google_ad_width = 160; google_ad_height = 600; //--> </script> <script type="text/javascript" src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js"> </script> </div> <script type="text/javascript"> <!-- var skip2 = "-->"; if ( screen.width <= 1280 ) { document.write (skip2); } //--> </script> <script type="text/javascript"> <!-- var skip3 = "<!--"; if ( screen.width > 1280 ) { document.write (skip3); } //--> </script> <div style="font-size:7pt; color:#777;"> <center> Advertisement<br /><br /> <script type="text/javascript"><!-- google_ad_client = "pub-9736870014804453"; /* low res top ad */ google_ad_slot = "4610054252"; google_ad_width = 728; google_ad_height = 90; //--> </script> <script type="text/javascript" src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js"> </script> </center> </div> <script type="text/javascript"> <!-- var skip4 = "-->"; if ( screen.width > 1280 ) { document.write (skip4); } //--> </script> <!-- End of Adsense side banners --> Apparently it doesn't work in Opera, Chrome, or Safari either and the code doesn't validate as XHTML so there is definitely something wrong.
  13. Thanks for the insight Gerard! I will definitely do some research on Squid and Reverse Proxies . . . Like I said though my knowledge is very limited so until I learn PHP and SQL I'm gonna just have to stick with HFS and basic XHTML and CSS. Before I do anything serious though, yeah I'll definitely have to get a real web server. Thanks for the info!
  14. No, just go to add/remove programs and install IIS, which also sucks because you'd have to install PHP, mySQL and PHPmyAdmin if needed manually. Any server can do the job, like mediafire, I bet Mediafire uses Apache or lighttpd, some sites even use IIS but that's another story. What you need is a decent working website script so it uploads files to a certain folder, you'll always have access to them by FTP or locally but you'd have to script a website first, so it could upload. The only thing you must change manually is the max upload size on php.ini to what you wish, nothing more? I guess I will just use HFS until I sufficiently learn PHP and more javascript then somehow port over to XAMPP If I ever choose to really use a subdomain I guess I'll just buy hosting and direct it to there because this doesn't matter enough to me to take a bunch of time to figure it out lol
  15. I'm just trying to build my own little mediafire for use by myself and some of my friends. HFS allows uploads and updates the pages based on whatever people put on there, Apache would force me to do EVERYTHING manually, which just wouldn't work. It would be like I upload a file to mediafire and one of their people has to go in and change my page to show the file I just uploaded rather than their software updating the page automatically. Are there any programs I could you on top of HFS as a DNS server like Stunnel goes over top of Apache or HFS? A microsoft DNS server if I'm not mistaken requires Windows Server 2003 which I obviously can't afford plus I have no clue how to work it.
  16. If I used Apache then wouldn't I have to manually write every page and update all the files on my own? I'm just trying to build a simple file server that manages files automatically and has its own side scripting and this one seems to do it well . . . Why do you not like HFS? Because it's hard to support or because it just sucks? I know HFS can't do virtual servers but I was wondering if some other program could or if I could somehow use Apache over it, with one host that references HFS on another port on the main domain and then another virtual server that references my other computer on the subdomain. BTW as for web design I know some XHTML (Transitional) and CSS and the very basic basics of javascript and that's about it.
  17. Why not? Maybe because it works well and my knowledge of web designing is limited . . .
  18. Hey, Currently I am hosting a 2 websites (well, same website really) on 2 computers in my house, both on the same IP via NAT on my router. One website is www.domain.tld and references the computer on my internal network. The other site is www.domain.tld:port and references the computer on my internal network. I'm looking for a better way to do this other than creating a link to another port, and I've already registered a sub domain but I'm confused on how to set up virtual hosts and DNS records don't let you specify port numbers. Some way or another, I would like to have my main domain reference the server at just like it does now, but then rather than having a separate port number, having a subdomain (sub.domain.tld) reference the server at on my network. Both computers are using HFS 2.2f. http://www.rejetto.com/hfs/ Is this possible to set up without Apache? Thanks, Raybob
  19. I think that part of the problem is that GTA IV is so difficult to mod (Thx Rockstar) compared to previous GTA games, so there are fewer mods by a lot. I can't really think of many exciting mods or overhauls like there were for VC and SA, and with every update Rockstar releases, it disables ASI loaders and mods built for previous versions of the game.
  20. Go into the BIOS and see if your Hard Drive is detected or not.
  21. We need to tell Rockstar to hurry up with GTA V

    Old PC

    Ubuntu 10.04 x86 is the winner.

    Last Purchase?

    I just bought COD World at War and Modern Warfare on PS3 from Ebay for $40. Hopefully I'll end up getting Black Ops sometime and Gran Turismo 5 will be a necessity once it comes out.

    Old PC

    OK, so I got this old PC from a friend and I am having trouble deciding which OS to put on it. It has a Pentium III CPU at 733 MHz, and 64MB RAM. On one hand, there's Windows NT 4.0. NT based, very stable and doesn't use a lot of resources, but it can't run many new programs or even older Win 9x games. Then there's Windows 2000 or XP. Both will run most or all new 32-bit programs, as well as older apps for the DOS based Win 9x series. However, I know XP won't run well on this PC because of the amount of RAM. Windows 2000 may or may not run better (enlighten me) and it's missing some essential features only in XP. Last, there's the Windows 9x series. Very unstable, but they're guaranteed to use fewer resources than XP or 2000 and they're the platform that all the old programs and games were made for. Help me decide! Thanks, Raybob
  25. That's one of your Miranda Rights from the 5th Amendment to the Constitution. I don't think they have that law in the UK though. @Husky Don't steal . . . . ?
