So I click 'print' on my PC but had to reconfigure its network settings, hound around for a driver update, and then re-specify the printer in Microsoft Word.

I got impatient so I clicked 'print' on my Mac and seconds later, pages of text came rolling out of my printer.

The mac tends to have most drivers built in, windows sort of does as well. But you can always run into an identical situation with the mac which probably leads you to versiontracker :D

I prefer to imagine that the PCB used in Macs is imbued with arcane magical properties in the manufacturing process and instead of conventional wiring they use locks of Elvish hair.

Done.

I took the Express postage option, so hopefully I get it first thing on Thursday morning.

The God of War collection I already have imported, and it's awesome. But yeah, I'll post what I can of the rest.

I love Snow Leopard printer support. Even if you don't have a printer set up yet, in most circumstances not involving Windows, you can get it added and printing in just a few clicks from the print dialog.

not always possible - I reformatted my mbp a few months back when I was having some font issues and my iphone wasn't synced any more...

looking into bfbc2 - is it like an awesome version of MW2? It looks fun as hell. If people are still playing it in a month or so I'll jump in

PFFFFFFTTTTTTTTT. Good luck with that.

My iphone is synced with my PC at home, not my mac at work. So i'm not going to sync and resync and auth auth auth just to grab a few files. Software was found to do it nice and easy, so it all worked out in the end.

Edit:

Rass: BC2 is a ton of fun. I'm guessing most of us will still be playing it in a few months time, i know some were thinking about picking up a server for it. But i think that will wait for a month at least, to make sure we actually do have an interest in the game still.

The only problem i have with the game at he moment is getting owned by all the higher ranked players. Last night i was getting destroyed. The m60 medic gun is OP as fuck and add that with the uber ammo upgrade (on any weapon really) makes it frustrating to play. Apart from that though it's still a ton of fun and you can easily jump servers if someone is kicking your ass :lol

Ahh, the dreaded 'one synched system only' catch. It pisses me off too. I still sometimes connect my iphone to my work computer to put a podcast on there, then remember as I drag it onto the phone that it just snaps back and won't let me. So lame.

I've temporarily fixed that issue by buying an iPod Nano. It doesn't care what system you plug it into, the dirty little whore.

awesome chops, Ive sunk nearly 4 days into MW2 and last night I got my ass beat 3 kills 21 deaths :/ I play well for a few games then it lumps me in with people who have prestiged 5/6 times and I get torn apart. So I'm used to the frustration haha.
If I have any cash left when I get back I'll pick it up straight away - 17th April

If all you want to do is run around like an idiot and blow buildings up you can do that as well. It doesn't really give you any points but hey, it's fun.

Do you have a good enough PC to play it?

3000 MSP on Fishpond is REALLY cheap atm. Normally $50, now $35.
Whaaat? I bought them for $40 (and used a $10 off coupon, so $30) a couple days ago and now they are $32. :(

The current coupon code is CUEFISH (valid until midnight Sunday) for $10 off when you spend $40, so you can pretty much get 3000 MSP for $22... sigh.

Has anyone heard anything about Australia getting access to XNA content?

I really want Rock band network.
You're probably best off making a US gamertag and buying songs with that (you'll need US points). I believe after you buy them you can play the songs with your regular gamertag.

yea you will do fine. It should enjoy your quad core thats for sure. Doubt you will be running everything at uber max, but i run mine on medium and the FPS isn't too bad unless smoke pops up. That seems to kill it for some reason :lol

Do they send via Registered post?
Nope. Not sure if they even have an option to pay extra for registered post. Last time I ordered from them I didn't end up getting the Microsoft points, but I did get the DVD I ordered at the same time. I emailed them a couple days after the ETA and they offered to send another and made a claim to Australia Post.

It turns out that one of my old EQ friends hosts one of the Aussie Altitude servers. You guys ever play on cynsational?
Pretty sure that's the only Australian server. :lol

bakemono said:

Oh. It said midnight Sunday of this week on OzBargain. There's probably some other coupons you can use. Just google for them. I think there's a $10 off one for new customers, and probably at least $5 if you're not.

So I got my bag of crap.

It contained a crap bag (it's a Cricket Bag, for all my cricket storage needs).

Oh well. I needed to buy a new bag anyway.
Does yours also smell weird?

I have a 6 year old niece... She is smart enough to be insulted if I gave her the crappy little camera...

:( but the laser sight was missing.

I think I am going to go nerf gun crazy these next few weeks... I already feel sorry for any moving object in my house.
This one was on special in the latest Big W catalogue. Very tempting, although it would get about five minutes of use before my girlfriend breaks it or me.

BY THE WAY DORKS

The podcast that we recorded two weeks, that I'd decided was too shit to listen to, has been EDITED AND UPLOADED!

AusGAF Collection: AusGiraffe Vs Predator (Episode Betamax)
[72 mb]

We're starting to get into the groove of things, but you couldn't tell from this podcast. Will start editing the next episode once I get all the recordings.
I'm trying to download it, but RS won't let me ;_;
