The second video is a Quakeworld match at another local lan party with a few of us playing that tekk captured one time. This would probably be about 1998 in terms of time frame and these matches are what it was all about back in the day. I miss games like this and the fun that came along with everyone in game together. Even though we don't require lanning to play games like this nowadays, we sure could use some games *LIKE* Quake1 and Doom instead of the countlesss military fps titles, team based deathmatch and 'upgrades'. Everything gets in the way of deathmatch these days and it really needs to get back to the roots of the genre.

It would sure be nice to live in a world that wasn't totally ruled by money, I sometimes feel I would have been better off if I lived during the 1800s or something out in the Wild West, but then I'd probably have been killed in some Saloon shootout or something.
Apple, Microsoft and any other companies using their pool of generic patent portfolios should die in a fire and that is all.

The next day I woke up and hoped that Microcenter would be open since it was the 4th of July. It was and my mission had started. I first went in and actually asked one of the clerks what he would bet on, guessing it either had to be power supply or the video card itself. I was betting on video card personally, but the power supply was the cheaper buy to test first. I arrived back home and immediately started hooking up the new power supply. When everything was set, I flipped the hard switch, hit the power button on the case, and immediately saw a nice orange spark and a *zzzt* noise. I felt like my heart had crushed at that moment since it immediately seemed like a simple fix at this point was not possible. I instantly removed the videocard, and decided to go through all the steps I could to test if the motherboard was ok. Sure enough it turned out, both power supplies were fine, and the motherboard still powered on with video working from on board video. I headed back to Microcenter and decided I should buy a cheap PCI-E Videocard and make *SURE* the PCI-E slot on my motherboard was still good, after all sparks were just flying all around there. So back home, I hooked the videocard into the machine and tested with both power supplies yet again. This time the PCI-E slot proved to be ok and I was so grateful nothing worse had happened and I was dead set on replacing my video card with a new one. Back to Microcenter I went and decided on a quite expensive purchase that should last me a couple more years if something doesn't fry at this point. Funny to say the old video card was purchased June 28th of 2009 and had a 2 Year warranty. $400 I still am happy to have a working machine with a very capable video card ready for the coming games like Battlefield 3, Rage, Skyrim, Dead Island and more!
