He will deafen all the others
Well we have to include, real, film, game ect
The SAS, the best special forces in the world except for maybe the SBS
The Doctor, the best of the Timelords
Arnie, see Predator and Terminator 2, also those cool helicopters when he was a clone
Bruce Willis, because well lots, and howe many times has he saved the world.
Nathan Drake, beats pirates AND zombies
Yoda, because he is, and most of the other Jedis in the prequels were knobs.
The FAA before they lost their FA2s, because they are good
More when I think of them
Now that is funny, but the first twat, that was not.
At least he tried to laugh it off at the start
Actually the REAL EE was the best, argue against EE Lightning and EE Deltic!
EE will always be them to me!
Did El Reg pay him for its use?
I see the MS shills are out in force,
So was I downvoted because someone did not want Windows 8 or because they dared to want dual boot?
Well it is cheaper to add Linux to a Windows PC than Windows to a Linux PC.
What was interesting was that a P4 booted into XP struggled to run 1 game, rebooted into Mint 15 and it ran fine.
Linux is the ONE platform you can add for free!
Porting from the PS3 version of a game would be even worse than porting from the PC version.
I was not on about porting from PS3 (although that seemed to be quite common in the last few years) but about the fact if there is a PS version there is already non DX code there. So if you have code already written for other platforms adding yet another would not be a show stopper.
As I mentioned only 3 platforms currently supported use Direct X, Windows (XP to 8), And the two most recent DirectXBoxs 360 and 1. One of those platforms is HUGE, but it is only one platform.
I think otherwise.
People are starting to get pissed off with Windows, they want alternatves. As to coding, in the console world they are already handing different APIs and OSes.
How much work to move from a version on BSD (Most well known gaming versions being CellOS and Orbis OS, as well as Vita OS and Apples OS.) using an API influenced by OpenGL, to Linux with OpenGL?
So if there is a Playstation version as well as a Windows version, it will not be a huge job to go Linux.
The gaming engines are almost all multi platform (excluding the first party engines from the likes of Naughty Dog & co) So when the engine you use goes Linux most of the work is done.
To be honest Direct X and the Windows platform is a minority among the amount of platforms, just that a lot of people own one of the three.
DX Windows, X360, XB1
Open GL, Linux, Mac OS
Bespoke APIs Playstations - all 3 current
No idea - Nintendo
Done it here and it was about 3/4s of the games.
UEFI worked fine.
Oh and of course the other boot was 7, the owners did not want 8 at any cost.
Games performance is fine on both OSes
They do in the Scaletrix version
I am trying to work out if this is sarcasm or not, I do hope so.
Many years ago.
A single tripod mounted decent video camera near the back can do a surprisingly good job.
Well over one hour single shot, some panning and zooming, but it is watchable, now the only material existing of that band. I shot over the top of the audience.
I am so glad there was no such thing as phone cameras then, that would have ruined the gig..
People who had portable video recorders generally knew how to use them.
Wobbles and stupid aspect ratios should not be tolerated.
As to watching, I would not remember it half as well as if I had not videoed it, even if most of the time I was watching directly and just glancing at the view finder.
Of all the concerts I remember well, they are the ones I videoed, the one I did the lighting, the one I photoed for them. Two bands both seen too many times.
Even the low fi linear mono sound track is liked, it was not THAT bad, but was useable.
It has already happened with other sports.
Look at Cricket.
Or they will piss off leaving you with no money.
I already know I do not need a dictionary.
We all know about the stylish supercomputers.
I will conduct an office poll later as to the meaning
Sounds very sarcastic to me and I have not heard a single person use it, but if I did I would punch them!
Well that one is easy - the super computers from Seymour.
The UI is so ghastly I am investigating PaleMoon now.
There are many good reasons for rectangled tabs, there are many good reasons for title bars and fielk Edit menus.
I do want the internal fixes but I don't want a ghastly GUI.
Look Mozilla, if we wanted our browser to look like Chrome we would install it.
Currently on 28 at work as I got Australised at home and I cannot stand it. Even with the removal tool it still looks shoddy.
I need to find how to report the UI as a big.
And they are already on about EOL it.
How are you supposed to keep up?
Good job they are both dual boot.
We do not want to see that paper!
Who keeps reading it as Cortina?
Apple can have Paul MacCartny or Ringo Starr, but younger people would wonder why Thomas is on it.
If Sony added anything similar to their consoles it would be a little red demon.
I hope people get the last few links.
Heated front window - ouch
Also the underbonnet view looks silly, what is wrong with an electric motor.
Regeneration breaking when coasting - not nice. Why not just slow down like ordinary cars?
An electric vehicle used during Golf
I wonder what he would have thought about a Buccaneer?
So what do the rest of people use over there?
As soon as my old PC at home running XP has issues caused by EOL it gets Linuxed.
I would dual boot but need another drive.
What is weird is that I found it easy to install and use as a complete newbie, easier to use for a long term windows user than Win 8.
I use Firefox
Due to too many FACI warnings and other crap we cannot find the film.
I actually stopped buying one companies DVDs totally because when I bought the first thing I had to do was rip and reburn, easier to download.
You forgot his honourific of Sith!
He was as shifty bastard at the best of times. Spitting Image had him right as a snake.
3. Format shifting
I used to download rips of HD-DVDs so I could watch the high definition version of a film. I copied it from the PC to the PS3 and watched it on there.
I wanted to watch the film in HD, I had an HD player but they did not make discs for it. So I worked around it.
Funny that my BluRay player could play rips of HD-DVDs so well.
I last rebuilt our home PC just as 7 was launching, so I reused its existing XP licence after finding Vista quite horid.
Still runs fine, and as I said before if XP gets screwed Mint goes on.
Oh and if the XP PC ever gets killed off Mint 17 will be going straight on, I would only miss the video editing software. As the source engine runs fine on Mint.
I chucked Firefox and Thunderbird on, set their profiles to use the FAT32 partition, got their accounts working.
Then booted into Linux, got the auto mount working for the FAT32 partition and pointed the new proifles at the same place.
They were impressed when they viewed their emails in Linux when just downloaded in Win 7.
The boys were not supposed to get PCs yet, but will built a few months early to be sure of getting a Win 7 disc as they hate 8 as well.
1 SSD, 1 HDD, 5 user partitions (SSD NTFS EXT4, HDD NTFS, FAT32, EXT4), I had to create the FAT32 partitions on our XP box.
Well two dual boot PCs at hone, both have UEFI, both boot into Mint about 4 or 5 seconds after selecting the OS, Windows 7 takes more like 10 including the login.
Dual boot, very powerful, emails accesable from both OSes. SSD boot.
Firstly I was nice and installed a Microsoft OS, top version of 7. Then I installed Mint 17 Cinnamon. Put STEAM on both boots.
Why were there more included tools on the free OS?
But TLOU is actually a good game!
Actually the good graphics even on the PS3 version really enabled you to zone in, the facial animations, the body language. The giraffes, the vegetation, it drew you in so much you almost felt you were there.
And as you said one of the best stories ever in a video game.
Now time to wait for Uncharted 4.
I take it you haven't read about this.
A large amout of PS4 purchasers did not own a PS3, this is mainly aimed at them.
Left Behind was produced after release. So could not have been included.
ND used it to develop their PS4 tools. So what if it is a reskin, it is still one of the best games ever.
I was playing Left Behind last night, on hard, on the PS3.
The estate I live in is not gritted and if the snow falls nothing 2WD can get up one hill until it has been cleared.
Been dragged up in a previous car a couple of times.
I suppose I will be dragging next time.
When the weather is totally crap 4WD and fording ability are rather usefull
It is actually a good little car!
A bit small with 3 teenagers but as I read the more impressed I was.
My car would probably just about beat it off road (well mine has a green oval on the steering wheel, 5 cylinders and 2 live axles), but it seems to perform pretty well.
yes it is impressive.
The guy had been awake all night and fell asleep while driving. That was his choice.
Not even working just chatting up women.
And where was the choice for John Weddle & Stephen Dunn?
And the bastard has been released!
RIP to the rail staff and passengers
Is a type of course where you study various modules from within physics and chemistry.
I know there is more to this as my daughter is investigating the course.
I will be on to them asking to protect terrestrial broadcasts.
One thing about these surveys,
TV source you can only tick one box, so if you have say Freeview and Freesat you can only tick ONE box
