It just decided that I cannot use a PCI express video card, then when I went back into the BIOS to set it back to onboard, it starts giving me just a compaq screen and it refuses to boot. ugh.

My dad has another compaq which takes 30 minutes to boot xp from a fresh install, because it has this garbage hard drive and refuses to accept any other I could find.


So yeah, compaqs are horrible. Probably even worse than Gateways. It's strange because HPs usually aren't bad. They at least work.

Tell me about it. I have an Evo D510 sittin' here, I can't get the blasted thing to accept a display driver despite having downloaded from multiple sites including HP and nVidia, tried installing it manually as well. So I'm paying $50+ to get a decent AGP card for it, hope it works.

Most of my cars were similar to that in the NFSU games. I didn't care if they gave me performance or not, I just wanted it to look the way I wanted it to. Except in NFSU2, you have to upgrade your car to look ridiculous because you have to get your car to a certain amount of stars before you can move on.
That's called rice. If you like it, that's all well and good, but that's what it's known as, and for the most part...People dislike it. It was incredibly popular from '89-2002 then it died off. The "tuner" scene is very minimalistic these days. Some are even going for the Sleeper look (hustler car).

This is a fairly good example vvv

Yeah, I know what they are called.
The sleeper looks boring.

SCII is pretty easy with the MMM strategy with Terrans. I barely lose with this strategy.

I think I am gonna skip the rest of the practice league. I think 25 is enough, and if I want more practice, I'll just play custom with friends or random people.
