    The internet language

    No, its the "Welt", a serious newspaper. I don't visit the Bild, because you could also listen to your local fortune-teller ^^ www.welt.de Welt does belong to Axel Springer Publishing Group... Â

    PC Discussion Thread - All PC related in here.

    I am ordering a new desktop flagship tomorrow (so I can tinker with all the little parts during my holidays starting next week), but sadly it seems that I cannot buy an 8800 GT. Money is not the point, those cards are just not available. So I have to stick with a cheap 8600 GT and will upgrade in spring 2008... Setup: Intel Core 2 Duo E6750, boxed Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R 2x1024 MiB Samsung DDR2-RAM (PC2-800) Club 3D CGNX-G866DD 250 GB WD HDD (WD2500AAKS) Enermax Liberty 400 W Lian Li PC-7 SE-B III Eizo S1931SH-BK Well, I am unsure about the monitor, but that's a component I want to see in action before I buy exactly the one I have seen in action...

    Bad news for terry pratchett

    http://www.paulkidby.com/news/index.html Terry Pratchett has been diagnosed with a very rare form of early onset Alzheimer's. Seems to have been the cause for his phantom "stroke". Any Igor around? Edit: Oh, and despite of that rather bad news... guess who's back in town?

    More Photos Surface in Widening German Skull Scand

    Well, did anyone care when the mentioned and now bleached skulls where separated from their bodies? No. Oh, and btw a dozen civilians got killed last week during NATO air strikes. I did not notice a comparable outcry. Bigotry, hypocrisy, double standard... you name it. --- Worst thing: people are believing B*LD. Instead of awaiting the investigations, politicians condemn some soldiers. It is well known how this... newspaper (B*LD does not deserve the name) treats truth. http://bildblog.de/ Sick world

    why did you use your username

    Huh, an ancient thread I didn't post in? Ok, "der bastler" is German for something like "the tinkerer", "the hobbyist" or "the home constructor" (a nod to dict.leo.org).

    Football World Cup 2006 in Germany

    Yes. On the other hand regarding the "most valuable player" contest I don't get it why they still nominate Ballack? Klose, that's ok, did a great job. So did Lahm. But Ballack?

    Football World Cup 2006 in Germany

    Sorry for me not understanding, but why for heaven's sake do people do this transfer thingy football <-> nation. Don't get it. Just a game. *shrugs* Or are these sure signs of rising banana republics?

    Football World Cup 2006 in Germany

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/world_cup_2006/teams/germany/5138652.stm Yeah right, Argentinian team runs amok (read this article), Frings gets a slap in the face (see this pic), reacts... and is banned. Super. Well done. Feels like ET with n00bs: One places mines, dumb team mates run over them and complain: one gets kicked.

    Football World Cup 2006 in Germany

    These last matches were... disappointing. Teams which played good football got kicked out. Referee errors increased dramatically. Wasted time...

    Football World Cup 2006 in Germany

    BESCHISS! Only 10 secs left and then: penalty! Because someone stumbled over his own feet. Ich glaub' es hakt! "My game ist fair play"? Stick it to where the sun never shines!
  15. Well, happy anniversary, OFP. So, next on: Armed Assault? *sigh* And no system to play it... --
