    I love watching the half life 2 bink videos

    I just watch these things over and over. I love the music of the Coast video, and I love the ravenholm and trainstation vids. And anything with striders in it is a must see. It's so pathetic that I am salivating over just videos...I can't wait until the game comes out! Does anybody know...

    BSOD errors

    Hey, I've got a problem I haven't had to deal with before. My computer keeps giving me stop errors (on a blue screen, of BSOD fame) saying that the files win32k.sys and ntoskrnl.exe are doing something (bad, presumably). It says at the top, "KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED". What does all this...

    XCOM Apocalypse

    How can I get this thing to run under windows 2000? It tells me something like I have 2 megs of ram (i have 128) and doesn't seem to be able to handle the "incredible" (compared to its release date) system specs of my comp. Any suggestions? I really want to retrogame this thing, I've had a...
