Welcome to the club
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.
hmmm...good thinking....maybe i should do another drive image too
i m happy for u man. I love mine too got mine about 3 years ago
to play games online and other various reasons.
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).
here is a NetStat screenie of the same 64mb download
Ahhh braodband. ( :-( mines only 159k max)
Image the drive periodically
Restore point before every new install and update.
Enjoy (beware of Kazaa it is being watched and users litigated against).
My firewall is up and running...I use Sygate Personal Firewall...for anti-virus is use NAV 2003 Pro...I plan on imaging the C:\ drive again soon....where do ya go to set the restore points tho?...I forgot...
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.
