    Battlestar Galactica TONIGHT!

    Two sweet hours of a miniseries that's been recommended by many will be on Aussie TV tonight. And then there's two more tomorrow. Who else is taping it?

    Psychotic squirrel fun!

    Found some cool flash toons (Warning: cartoon gore and explicit language... also bad for those with a laugh allergy): http://www.illwillpress.com/vault.html Foamy the Squirrel... funny. Damn funny. "Kevorkian Scarf" and "Nuts To You" are particularly good. Didn't find anything in a...

    Two questions... Please Help...

    Okay, Software Whizzes, first question is: Does anyone know a good free website host? My sis wants to make a (probably heavily Linkin Park-themed) website of her own... Secondly, my mum uses a program called TurboLister to sell items on eBay, and just tonight it started giving her the...

    Aussie 56k-er seeks 56k-friendly server.

    Hows about it? I'm getting 200-300 for servers within Australia... Any Aussie HL2.net members running a sever and don't mind a bit of lag? I'm on 56k, but I'd really like to try HL2Dm out... I loved HLDM... Anyone?

    Easter Egg with Gabe...?

    Okay, now a lot of us have seen that picture of the Black Mesa Antimass Spectrometer research team, which is pretty cool by itself, but look at the dumpy little lady in the lower left hand corner... Now look at this picture of Gabe Newell...

    Vortigaunt Appreciation Thread (Probably spoilers).

    ... 'cos they're just so cool. It's no secret that they were my favourite aliens from Half Life. I love the way they always call people "The [Something]". "The Freeman", "The Eli Vance". And the way they talk... so cool. Kinda like monks, or old timey philosopher dudes. And I finally...

    Fortune Cookie Fortunes...

    I enjoy the odd fortune cookie, but the fortunes inside always seem to be lacking in inspiration... A little while ago, though, I came upon an old copy of MAD magazine which had some rather droll fortunes one one page. Things like: "Make a pass at the waiter!" "It's cancer." "It's...

    A Website About Something...

    Like the title says... www.something.com Is this real deep, or just real dumb?

    WTF? Hotmail's gone nuts on me...

    I just logged onto my hotmail account... and instead of warning me about being near my 2MB limit the way it usually does, the little box at the side instead says I now have 250MB of space! What the hell is going on? Is this some sort of fortunate accident?

    Um... okay, need help manipulating an .mdb database with VB .NET...

    Okay, here's the deal: I'm trying to create a three-tiered program here, one tier being a VB GUI, one being a logic layer, and the last being the layer that accesses data from the database. The whole thing is supposed to take percentage-based modifiers from the database in question, and...

    A PC gamer chats with a console fanatic...

    PCG: Hey, have you heard about Half-Life 2? It's looking to be one of the better games coming out this year... CF: Nah, sorry, haven't. What's it about? PCG: Oh, it's a sequel to Half-Life, one of my favourite games. Have you played Half-Life? CF: Um... I think I've heard about it...

    Finally got System Shock 2... Anyone got any play tips?

    Well, I finally managed to download SS2 from the Underdogs... had to get a bittorrent client (a bad one, as it turned out) and leave my computer on and connected for about 36 hours... Now, I've got the Rebirth model mod (and boy, does it ever make a difference) and I've also downloaded that...

    Oh, boy... HAPPY TREE FRIENDS on AUSSIE TV!

    http://www.happytreefriends.com/promos/australia.html La-la-lalalala, lala-lalalala, la-la-lalalala, lala-lalalala... I missed the first spot, apparently, but there's an actual series coming in November :eek: :naughty: :E

    Experimental Film (Yeah!)

    Okay, most people know of the greatness that is www.homestarrunner.com by now, but I was surprised to find this there... Damn, but the song is addictive. Anyone else think the clip would look good on TV?

    PC Powerplay article info: CS:S, HL: S and even CN:G

    Got the most recent PC Powerplay, here's the gist: The cover calls CS: S "Half-Life 2 Multiplayer", though this is said nowhere in the article inside, and indeed, the entire context of the discussion of CS: S is it being a way of testing Source's multiplayer capabilities that grew into...

    Saw "Dawn of the Dead" here today (May be spoilers)... need help...

    Damn cool and incredibly creepy movie. I liked the way that the zombies were almost completely mindless, very fast, immensly strong, and impossible to kill by anything short of massive brain trauma. Truly zombieriffic. Oh, and that scene with the "Shoot The Zombie Celebrity" game... Classic...

    Help with computer required... Power failure/surge caused it to fail to boot...

    Okay, here's the story: Today, we had some sort of power disruption. I'm not sure if it was a surge, or if the flow of current simply dipped momentarily, but for about half a second, all the mains-using electrical items in the house died. When the power stabilised, everything was working...

    Half Life 2 Preview in PC Games Addict. Slightly crappy...

    Okay, I got the newest issue of PC Games Addict today, and, lo-and-behold, it had a Half Life 2 cover. "Oh-ho!", I thought, "Maybe it's more gameplay info and screenshots!" Fat-bloody-chance. All it is is a rehashing of last year's info (Including the old Coastline and Strider vids on...
