    Letting Go of CNCNZ.com

    @Sonic I haven't posted since 2008 (well, for the most part since 2005!). I have very fond memories of this site, and still remember conversing with yourself and others back in the 'glory days' as I'd term it - thinking of those such as @Luk3us, @Phreakly, @Saracen. All the best for the future, and I hope things are looking up for you. Sam.

    New units you wanna see

    I'd like for some of the old units to still be in there - like the allied aircraft carrier. Also very happy to see the Kirov make a return!

  6. It's made by a number of ex WW people, so it should be quite good
  7. Most who sign up seldom post past about 20 posts, for whatever reason.
  8. Congrats Sonic! 6 Years of dedication to C&C is quite an achivement! That makes CNCNZ one of the longest running C&C site, if not the longest?

    Building a New Computer Help

    For a case, I would reccomend the Thermaltake Tsunami - it has 2x 120mm fans, and 1x 90mm one. V.good case, I plan on getting one later this year. Also, in temrs of video card, perhaps look at getting a Nvidia 6800GT or 6800 Ultra, if you have the money. If you don't, look at getting a 6600GT. They are on par with ati 9800 XT's, and for about the same price, but with new technology in them. Very good card, with good reviews & heardtohead articles from anandtech and the like.
  11. It is....... and I personally am greatly looking foward to KOTOR II!

    Stuck on Half Life 2

    Perhaps ask on a Hl2 forum somewhere? If you are talking about the big pipe thingie, and trying to get into it, this could help: www.gpforums.co.nz/showthread.php?s=&threadid=248487&perpage=25&pagenumber=1 the first number of posts just have random pics, but near the end of the first page, and in the second page, ppl talk about a similar problem I think.

    Me giving orders....never :wink: :lol: As long as submitted articles have some sort of connection to C&C and its community I don't mind what gets added to the articles section. The only off-topic type of artcicles we have are Rogue Leaders Hardware Guides. Speaking of RL, haven't seem him around for a while , he doing ok?

    Favorite Web Browser

    Firefox version 1.0 has been released now, download it from http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/ I did noticed that CNCNZ.com loaded slowly but it was when I first visited it using Firefox, since then its loads up quickly. Oh I know, I meant I've been using it since 0.8 I have 1.0 currently

    Mozilla Firefox since 0.8 something Nice, quick, tabbed browsing, easy to use. Only thing I find, is CNCNZ is somewhat slow to load when using it
  22. Greetings all, Specs: Athlon AMD 2400+ XP Asus A7N8X Deluxe Leadtek Gf 4 Ti4200 128mb Seagate Barracuda 80gb Win XP Pro Sp2 Mouse in question: Microsoft 'Blue' Optical mouseUSB & PS2 compatible. (Plugged into Ps2 port with an adaptor that came with the mouse.) Problem: After applying SP2 to Win XP Pro, I've noticed that when I've tried to play THeme Hospital, the mouse is extremely sluggish/laggy. I am wondering if there is some sort of tweak or something I can use so I can play normally? Much Obliged, DeadEye
