It's not exactly short-lived. I still have it on this account, just not on any of my other ones.

Use Bootcamp. That will let you run Windows games and use 3D graphics.

i am higly amused that people consider me to be an oldbie. I guess it's the member number. For the record, I have only been here since November 2005, which make sm quite definitely not an oldbie.

You can turn virtual memory off, but it causes a major slowdown on most modern computers. Starting with Windows 2000, virtual memory page files have become standard.

I have the latest DirectX version, and I'm not defragging because people with hard drives that are 500 GB or more can only defrag if they set aside a week in which to do so. :P

I was looking for help while playing through Nethergate for the umpteenth time, and stumbled across these boards. I'm pretty sure it was the insanity and inanity that kept me here. :P

Without going diagonally, which I can't do with the arrow keys, I couldn't have gotten to the pommel. Anyway, I appreciate all your help. I think I can manage to finish on my own, so I won't need to bother you anymore, except to ask what's a PDN? Clemmie
What keyboard could use I. Every laptop I have ever seen has used I as the 5 key, which means you won't move at all.

No-eye deer.

What do you call a blind elk with no legs?
Still no-eye deer.

What do you call a cow with no legs?
Ground beef.

What do you call a cow with only two legs?
lean beef.

Two parrots are sitting on a perch.
One turns to the other and says, "Do you smell something fishy?"

A drumset complete with cymbals falls off a cliff.
*Badum-shhee*

I wish I had an emo lawn.
Then the grass would cut itself.

Well, the Universal beta of BoA is pretty much done now, so the Avernum trilogy shouldn't be hard to do after that, since they use the same engine. As far as I know, there haven't been any problems running GF1-3 using Rosetta, and Jeff has already said that he has abandoned the Exile series, so we won't see any updates for that. As far as Vista goes, I've been able to run every Spiderweb game without problems.

Indeed. This is why I was ecstatic to find out that Geneforge 4 had come out for Windows. This means that the glorious Second Coming will soon be upon us! I feel like painting myself blue and running naked through the streets in celebration, but I should probably refrain. :P

The British Empire
Beginning in the 17th century, England began carving out huge swaths of "uncivilized lands" for itself. A series of wars with France in the 18th and early 19th centuries resulted in the acquisition of more colonies. At it's height, Britain had a presence in all six inhabited continents. Canada, Belize, the Bahamas, Jamaica, Bermuda, and probably a few islands I'm forgetting in North America, Guyana and the Falkland Islands in South America, Ireland in Europe, Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania, Madagascar, South Africa, an some others I'm forgetting in Africa, India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Hong Kong, Singapore, and some others, in Asia, and Australia. Starting in the late 19th century,and continuing into the mid-20th, these colonies started rebelling, and now the UK is a mere shadow of its former glory.
