    Firefox 4 Released

    It's noticeably quicker than FF3, but since I've grown so accustomed to Chrome, I'm not movin back. Although it is nice to have another quick browser when compatibly issues come up with Chrome.

    Blast from the past

    Long history short, after getting my copy of "Earth and Beyond" from Phreakly I neglected my C&C buds and played E&B until EA shut it down. (This was back when EA bought Westwood... wow long time ago now). Then I tried to get by with some WoW but found I had no time, and didn't enjoy the game much. Decided to go back to University, bring us to today. Glad to see everyone is doing very well. I stopped by to check out some info about RA3, looks promising... I'll continue to drop lines around when time allows, I'm curious to see how well EA does with the RA universe and the new FPS game coming out.. Good to see everyone still hangs around.
  3. Oh my god. Can it really be!? No! Yes! Holy Crap it is! :P

    CNCNZ 10: What Is It?

    Yes, I was Boom? then changed when we tried to form a CNCNZ clan. Been good, don't have much time anymore for computer games, but I do lurk around once and while. CNCNZ has seemed to keep a consistent level of high quality that I remember it having. Good to see the site moving forward.

    CNCNZ 10: What Is It?

    Hey Sonic, just wondering if you have managed to get in contact with any previous staff. I always wondered what happened to Rogue Killer, Phreakly, C&C King, Kingofall... etc. I lost track with them about 2003-4ish, when I was playing Earth and Beyond, which was promptly canceled by EA. Since then I have lost interest in C&C, but lurk around here from time to time. Glad to see things are going well.
  7. There's a 9800 Pro and a 9800 All In Wonder Pro. I have the AIW. It gets hot when you try to run demanding programs, such as graphic editing, or when you run games, I've only had it about 2 weeks, World of Warcraft made it heat up a bit. I threw a couple copper BGA sinks on it, and it wont over heat now. I dont blame ya for likin Nvidia, I like em too, buying this All In wonder was a total impulse sort of thing, lucky me, I like it. Go with what you like, if you want Nvidia, get it. Dont regret not getting what you wanted.

    Cell Phones.... Again

    Funny you should say that, Nextel has an attachment to a phone you can buy that allows you to pay someone via debt or credit card from a cell phone, you just swipe you card. I have a Motorola V551. Didn't want to spend the money on a Razr. I accually use the pictures for buisness, I can take them and send them, which is nice, and the video function is somewhat quirky.

    Religious beliefs

    I'm Jewish (I've heard all the jokes dont worry) I'm classified as Reformed, but I tend to lean more to the conservative side. I do believe in a superior being, one who plans the outcomes of our lives, things happen for reasons. I'm really not too outgoing about my religion for obvious reasons, and I tend to side with a lot of christian beliefs about political issues. I do not agree with abortion to the extend that most conservatives do. Life begins when an unique identiy is formed, at 6 weeks. I'll debate more when we have more issues.

    AMD vs Pentium

    Personally, I like Pentium, its reliable, doesn't overheat, I've heard great things about the 64 Athlons too. I finished building my PC about a week ago. Its running absoluetly great, and I wanted to OC it, but its running fast as lighting as it. Abit AS8-V Mobo (4x PCI Slot, AGP 8X/4X, 8 USB ports, and some other goodies I dont use) OCZ Preformance Series PC3200 DDR RAM, 1 GB ( I didnt want to fork over the money for DDR2) Intel Pentium 4 Prescott 530J, (runs at 3.0Ghz with hyperthreading) 9800 All In wonder 128MB graphics card (my pride and joy) Audgiy 2Z sound card 80GB Seagate HD (plan on getting another when my local store has a sale) System runs great. So I guess I'd favor Intel, but thats only because I've only used Intel

    C&C's Superweapon's & Reality

    I think Ion Engines are already being used in space craft for prototype purposes. Just how effective they are still lies unsaid. Oh BTW, if you want to see Area51, try using Google Maps and search under Area 51 Nevada, here's a link, first one to spot the chronosphere wins. http://maps.google.com/maps?q=Area+51&...p;t=k&hl=en
  12. I really dont mean to resseruct an older topic, but I recently purchased ATI 9800 All in Wonder 128MB. I was not so sure about spending more money on my card than I did on my processor, but I have fallen in love with this card. I used to be a Nvidia freak, but this is an awesome card. I can watch TV, record TV, absoluetly stunning graphics, and so many more functions I have yet to use. I spent $239 on this card, got it from Newegg (shipped in two days) and instaleld it, and it works great, it runs a little hot, but some BGA ram sinks and some fans make it just fine. I give this card 11 out of 10 stars. Its expensive yes, but there is no comparison to cheaper cards when it comes to functionability and quality.

    The Old Members

    Its been forever since I've visited CNCNZ.com. I was here long time ago, the days of the Chaos Confed, and Generals X. I remember the drunken stupor thread, but I didnt really understand it at the time (did anyone?) It was a plesant suprize to see CNCNZ.com still up. In case anyone cares, and wont troll me to livejournal.com, here's my recent history. Phreakly sent me a copy of Earth and Beyond. I moved away from CNCNZ.com and joined the EnB community. EA, cancled the game sept 21st 2004, and I then moved on to World of Warcraft. I didnt really like the game it self. I mean its really cool, the content was amazing, and I loved battling at the crossroads and collecting stuff, but it wasn't EnB. So I quit computer gaming, and accually started to live my life. A few minutes ago I thought about getting some computer advice, and I thought about where was a good place. Then I remembered Rogue Leader's Hardware guides, so here I am now. Hello boys
  14. Could be urban myth, but I hear the AMD run much hotter than the P4 does. Once I learn how to over clock I intend to over clock to about 3.6GHz I've changed most things on this setup, here's what I have now... Searching for a differnt graphics, I hear the 5900 were a rushed release.
