......... and i just downloaded the x86 version of 5472 last night when i couldn't install the x64 version shortly after it was released..... now i wanna download this one to see if i can get this one to boot....... *sob*

edit: then again..... it might be just as much of a waste of bandwidth as it was for me to download the Battlefield 2142 beta..... so WHAT THE HELL!!! lol.

2 hours 20 mins to go :s

Damn I chose the wrong night to go out.
Whoola Whoopa, Whoot... Whoot... :) I can not wait to install this...? The problem is I am going to be so busy over the weekend I will not get this installed until Monday. I have been helping the folks with replacing the sofix and facia on their house. Good job I used to be a carpenter, comes in handy.

I have been really bussy alday and I just turned on my computer for the first time today.

1hr left...? :) starting to get excited now...

Mecham listed what it would be called, if you aren't currently enrolled as of this moment, enrollment is not currently available.
WOOOOO!!!!! finally a version of Vista i can use again!!!! love the new cursor and stuff...... though i'm still getting the placebo second monitor.....

Anybody know of any drivers that definitely work in this new version? maybe Audigy 2 ZS drivers or somethin?

edit: well..... nevermind the "placebo second monitor" stuff. for some stupid reason Vista automatically adds a second display, with a resolution of 800x600 and 8-bit color. anybody know WHY it does that?

edit #2: and might i say..... WOW is the sidebar a huge resource hog! freakin move the cursor over it to make it be less transparent, and my CPU usage bounces up to 30%..... and with VERY few processes running, it's already using half my memory (not necessarily only the sidebar.... but still.... wow). One good thing though....... Vista appears to be very well Dual-Core optimized. lol.

Anyone with an NVIDIA card (more specifically a 6800 Ultra PCI) having problems running direct3d applications?

Tried the built-in chess game, world of warcraft and counter-strike: source and they all give me horrid artifacts...

...was getting to the point where I thought the card had blown, but I just formatted and put windows xp on there and its completely fine now.

Anyway, if anyone can reproduce that, would be great.
i'm running 2 7900GT's, and get no artifacts whatsoever...... but then again.... the last two builds i tried to install, i couldn't even use since it set an imaginary second display as the primary display with no cloning to the REAL display.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
