    I would brag aswell but....I've come to terms with the grim reality
    of living in a dead zone :)

    just a warning but you might get a little "download happy" at first. you will do a lot of "hm, this looks good" downloading and uninstalling. be ready with a nice Restore Point.

    Hey Adrenalize...a little off topic but I noticed you had
    an Asus A7N8X mobo and a Radeon 9700 pro.
    Can you run your system on 8x graphics setting?

    I hate the UK so much, we're all stuck on crappy 512k lines (or 56k).

    Ahhh braodband. ( :-( mines only 159k max)

    Must haves:
    Firewall
    Antivirus
    Image the drive periodically
    Restore point before every new install and update.

    Enjoy (beware of Kazaa it is being watched and users litigated against).

    Cramcast is usually capped at 1800kbps (or 225kB/s) but they are experimenting with raising their caps to 3500kbps (or 437.5kB/s), they are uncapping to 3500 until Sept 30th. I would expect a slowdown to 180-200kB/s unless they leave it at 3500.
