  1. You need to automatically collate a database of spammer's email addresses, then spam them in turn :p

    Arma Shutting Down My PC

    If it just randomly dies without any errors or blue screens, it's almost certainly a hardware failure. Does the laptop get particularly hot before it fails?

    Obama supports plan for mosque near ground zero

    I somehow don't think that building a Christian church in... Waco, for example, would provoke the same response.
  4. Any SATA one would do fine. LG make decent ones.

    way age thing in website?

    Well, given that you chose to give them your DOB of your own free will, the judge might look at you funny :p
  6. I will support this proposition under one condition - Sion Lenton's head must appear at the center of the radial menu!
  7. The spammers of today's wave of spammers were atrocious. I offered multiple to send my credit card details via PM, but got no reply. Children these days just don't work for the money like they used to.
  8. AFAIK, plasma screens can get some nasty screen burn-in (i.e. a still image will burn itself into the screen that you constantly see it). I'm not sure if that is still the case, but you might want to read into it first.

    Interesting fact I saw the other day, not sure if it's been pointed out, or whether it was blatantly obvious to people more perceptive than I am -

    Royal navy buys Hornets not JSF...

    Wasn't it reported a few months ago that insurgents in Pakistan or Afghanistan were hacking into UAVs and watching their video feed?
  11. Is the ACOG now standard issue for British forces? Last I heard, it was only being issued to 'selected units'.

    Royal navy buys Hornets not JSF...

    In fairness, if enemy forces were able to tap into the radio system of a manned fighter aircraft, wouldn't they be as compromised in effect?
  13. You forgot to use the word "Synergy"

    Perhaps the carrier Typhoon didn't work out? Were any working prototypes built?
  15. You must have missed the disappearing threads... literally.
  16. BUT OMG WE NEED A NEW ENGINE TO FIX THE BUGS!!!111(eleven) *coughs*
  17. I wonder just how easy it's going to be to design an engine that would offer a worthwhile increase in efficiency and scalability over the current one. It's very easy for people to say "Game X looks better than ArmA 2 and yet it runs better on my machine." The reality is that you have to consider the scale of what BIS' engine is generating. Things like the Source engine, championed as the wonder engine that runs great on the slowest of PCs, would shit itself over half of what the BIS engine has to do (case in point - Garry's Mod will eat a well spec'd computer on big maps with lots of objects) Hell, I'm sure there's probably an argument to be made for BIS' engine being the most efficient computer game engine out there. Who knows? Certainly not going to be simple to improve on it in a way that justifies the years of work and millions of euros that a substantial rewrite would take. As for SLI. Last time I checked the Valve hardware surveys, only 2% of Steam users (which I would consider a good representative sample of PC gamers as you will ever get) have SLI systems. Should BIS go to all that effort to cater to them? I'm not so sure.
  18. SLI doesn't work reliably work with ArmA 2. Just look at the Troubleshooting forum...
  19. Wait, if it's an 'engine limitation', then it cannot be fixed without rewriting the engine surely? And what problems with MP/addon management are caused by actual engine limitations? There's lots of people who throw this phrase around, but don't have the facts to back it up with.
  20. Please qualify this statement. Do you know the exact cause of these issues? Have you read the source code of the game yourself?
  21. Could you qualify why the engine must be replaced with your obviously excellent knowledge of the limitations of the engine?
  22. What colour is the boathouse in Hereford?

    Chinese Army Addon!

    Well, we hardly need any more...

    Chinese Army Addon!

    Yes, clearly we need BIS to waste their time duplicating the efforts of the community... FPDR
  25. Does anyone else see the problem here? =P
