    Eve has in game voice, but most still prefer TS/Vent (because you don't have to be logged in to use them)
  6. You need to find out what your PSU is. You need to find out if there's room in your case for a 10 inch ish card. You need to find out if your PSU has a 6-pin connector, which all the latest cards require. To run TF2 on good settings you will want a GeForce 8 series or higher, or equivalent ATI. This means you need a 550W psu REALLY FUCKING MINIMUM. Liek srsly put a 650 in it.

    x.org too short?

    Hey, I noticed x.org is a working site. I thought domains had to be 3 or more long for .co.uk, and 2 or more for .com Is the rule 1 or more for .org, or is there an exception? And if so, why isn't a.org already taken? Cookie for the correct answer.
  10. Throw it away, then have fun with your new PC.

    I don't think you're spamming. I think you can guarantee it's a bollocks machine tho.

    if you buy two of them and fill them full of concrete you can use them as book-ends. more use than you're getting out of it now, right?
  14. i used myspace a couple of years ago. then everyone kinda switched to facebook. so i still have a myspace account but dont really use it. i also have a bebo account, which just gets spammed by webcam bots, so thats a bit arse.

  18. i only found out about it a couple of week ago when a colleague went on a camping weekend, with the side task of finding 5 geocaches in the area. he came back and said he couldnt find any, coz the coordinates were just fields n shit. so i think geocaching is a nice idea, but it's a pain in the arse. my colleague is smart and has only managed to find 2 out of 7 geocaches, so i'm thinking cba tbh.
  19. not really bothered tbh
  20. Well, video game programming is notoriously mathematical, which means you need to be pretty good. so I don't see why you would have a problem applying for any regular programming jobs in your chosen language - except that you don't have a degree. I've been to University, in the UK, and here I wouldn't be able to get a job without my degree - but if you can you're very lucky. Right now, I get the impression you don't have a job, or are just about to finish school - so your priority is getting a job, don't be picky, you need an income. Once you have that, you have all the time in the world to think about what you really want to do.

    you're talking about image preloading which is usually done in javascript, but is not advisable. the "best" solution is to reduce the number and size of images on your web page so it loads faster.
