The <off topic> thread


Recommended Posts

Oh, there's something I want to let you know, Frojo. I remember several occasions where you said how much better the 3D rendering was on Linux. That isn't true on my computers.

When running my N64 emulator on XP, I get 60 FPS in 600x800 and pretty much beyond (32-Bit mode), but on Ubuntu (with the better processor and overall equipment) I barely get 20 FPS in 400xSometing in 16-Bit mode (and the emulator is the only process running).

I have a N64 emulator but could never get into it because of the lack of a joystick. :( How do you play yours uH...keyboard? joystick? plugin-able controller?

I use my keyboard, but I'm thinking about using my PC USB steering wheel sometime (it has a lot of neat little buttons on it).

Would a welcome thread be a useful thing to have?

When people join new forums they are often slightly unsure as to where to go & they'll have a look at the various sub-forums to have a look at what goes on in them.

If there were a welcome thread (not forum, I think that would take up too much space), people could say hi & post their problems. This way it could, hopefully get rid of some useless posts ("sig test", "how do I crop". "ZOMG I JST MADE THE MOST AMAZING THENG EVAARR!!!111" ect). It could also be useful as a way of reminding them to read the rules.

Just a thought. :)

Son, someday you will make a girl happy for a short period of time. Then she'll leave you & be with men that are ten times

better than you can imagine. These men are called musicians. :D

It would be nice, but as the rules say "Don't make 'Official' threads" and I think this counts as an "Official help and suggestion thread". I happen to be the reason Rick created that rule >->

I think I helped create the 'don't include

tags in your signature' rule. I shouldn't feel pleased with that, yet...

I agree, something of the sorts should be created and it may filter out confusion and pointless topics. I third that idea.

UsedHONDA posted the exact reason that I didn't create a new topic. If Rick. Ash, BoltBait or Dan feel that this would be an improvement to the site they are more than welcome to start a new sticky.:)

I'm about to reach 1,800 dA pageviews... I think I'll submit a deviation just to bump it up a bit.

Nice!

Guess where I'm posting from.... go ahead, guess!

Okay, I'll tell you. I'm posting from my Ubuntu computer! I feel so good to finally get a connection here! But unfortunately, this is only a temporary fix. I had to take the dsl router from my XP PC to my Ubuntu PC. So now, I'm trying to get the Wifi set up on my XP PC (and downloading Linux updates at the same time).
